No matter what a homeowner does or doesn't do, many will be exposed to the horrible event of a raw sewage back up from their drains. A raw sewage back up is what happens when the waste water back flows into your home’s bathroom and living areas. Sometimes the cause may be when tree roots grow into the pipeline and cause breaks in the sewer pipes. Other times this may be due to a construction mishap or a problem with the structure of the piping itself. For those families with children, this could even be the side effect of a something being flushed down the toilet, such as a toy that was too big or an article of clothing, causing a blockage to the sewer line.
Problems of sewage back up can be worse than a homeowner might imagine. Not only can the fumes and odor smell bad, waste water is harmful and can cause lung and air passage irritation. More serious health risks are being exposed to E. coli, gastro-intestinal upset, and even liver problems. Health Issues of these types can create lasting problems for all family members. Therefore, homeowners need immediate professional clean up and repair after a sewage leak or backflow has occurred in their home.
There are many helpful tips and safety precautions use to prevent drain sewage problems. A plugged-up drain line may be prevented by reducing and eliminating the amount of extra debris that can flow down into your sinks, showers, and toilets drains. Never flush large items such as diapers or wipes, even though many manufacturers claim their products are "flush-able", also keep your children from dropping thing into toilets by installing a toilet lid safety latch. One should never flush or dump grease into a drain line, as this will harden and may cause a clog in the drain sewer line.
Some other basic pointers to keep in mind to prevent damage to sewer lines or sewage back up and leaks are to always be sure that shrubs and trees are planted a safe minimum distance away from piping and other underground utilities. This will help reduce the risk of roots growing into the area where the drain sewage lines and other underground utilities are located.
Many chemicals that are advertised as “clog removers” or “safe for septic systems”, can actually cause physical damage to the drain sewer pipes. Harsh chemical cleaners are very caustic and should not be used by an untrained professional because these chemicals can erode and weaken the pipe walls of sewer lines. When this happens, the pipe walls can become so weak that they will rupture or crack.
