Common causes of a sewage backup

Contaminated water includes Category 2, or gray water, such as water from a washing machine or dishwasher overflow and Category 3, or black water, such as floodwater or water from a toilet overflow, which can cause severe illness. Even water from a leaking faucet should be dealt with as soon as possible as it can eventually become contaminated.

Most sewage backups often occur from a blockage in the sanitary sewer line, where wastewater may enter your home throughout the floor drains and other plumbing lines within the building. Some causes of sewage backups are preventable, while others aren’t evident until the backup occurs. Here are some of the main causes:

  • Solid flushes: A blockage in the waste line between a plumbing fixture and the main septic drain line is often referred to as a “solid flush.” This problem typically occurs when a large or inappropriate object is flushed down the toilet, such as food fat and cotton buds, creating a blockage somewhere in the waste line.  
  • Structural damage: When a waste pipe develops a crack, detaches from an adjacent pipe section, or is crushed because of building settlement - sewage backup can occur. 
  • Root blockage: The main drain line that connects the home to a septic tank or municipal sewer can be susceptible to clogging from tree roots. The roots grow naturally toward a moisture source, and typically enter the sewer line through pipe joints.
  • Sewer backup or surge: If a blockage occurs in a city sewage line, wastewater usually overflows at the lowest opening, which can be a sink or toilet in a home’s basement or lower level.
