When it comes to plumbing, it’s always best to have a professional take a look at anything out of the ordinary as even minor problems could signal more serious issues that the homeowner can’t see. A sewer line can break for a number of reasons. Rust, pressure, and water content can all contribute to damaging a line.  Tree roots  can grow into and puncture pipes, the garbage disposal may not always be used properly, mud or yard waste could seep through breaks or poorly fitted connections, and the temperature of the ground may cause a pipe to crack, expand, shrink, or even collapse. While pipes need to be properly maintained, accidents do happen, and sometimes simply maintaining them is not enough. Broken sewer line coverage depends on two things: the location of the break and the specifics of the insurance policy. The insurance company will want to know the precise location of the break, especially for underground pipes that connect to the neighborhood line.
