Plumbing in San Antonio Can Solve Your Plumbing Problems

The most common reason is a blockage formed by roots that have found their way into the line and formed a clog. The clog will grow and completely block the sewer line. Another reason occurs in lines from older homes which are made of cast iron and they rusted so badly that they break up. The pieces will create a blockage and the openings will allow roots to enter. These pieces also trap debris.
