Common Causes of Sewer Line Damage:
- Cast iron pipes may suffer from corrosion, rust, and ultimately pipe breakdown.
- Clay pipes often become brittle, cracking in multiple areas if improperly installed.
- PVC/ABS plastic pipe may suffer cracks if water temperatures exceed rated limits for materials.
In general, any type of pipe—regardless of the materials it’s made of—can break due to extreme inner (water) and outer (ground) pressure.

Broken Sewer Line Solutions
The plumbing and sewer line repair experts at Mr. Rooter Plumbing can assess your sewer pipe cracks and damage. While your property layout and sewer system are unique, there may be some basic issues that we can address with repairs.
These include the following:
- Pipe relining: Through this method, we’ll give you new pipes from the inside out. We can also line existing sewer pipes with a sort of “sleeve” to prevent pipe cracks. First, we’ll clean out the pipe, then apply the lining, which will harden in just a few hours.
- Bursting: If your sewer pipe is too damaged, we may need to pull a new sewer pipe through the hold one. This technique will use hydraulics to further break apart the damaged old one and replace it seamlessly with a new pipe.
- Preventive maintenance: Lastly, it is important to help prevent sewer line damage from occurring in the first place. With regular inspections and drain cleaning services, you can keep major debris and buildup out of your pipes and avoid cracks, clogs, or bursts.
