Sanitary sewer backups happen and it is not a pretty sight. Debris, grease, roots, pipe breaks, insufficient capacity and obstructions all cause sewage to back up into homes and businesses through basement drain pipes, sinks, toilets or shower drains. Even wet weather can contribute to the problem. The result is property damage, health risks, irate citizens and possibly lawsuits. This is just the beginning—the source of the problem has to be located, the mess cleaned up and the property restored. I hear a big “cha-ching.”
That’s where a comprehensive sewer line warranty comes in, saving the homeowner thousands in repair and replacement.
