Blockages in sewers can be caused by root intrusion, non-dissolvable items (baby wipes, female products) Sewer blockages can also be caused by items such as cooking grease, rags, or pieces of solid debris that have been build up in the line within time. The sewer pipe that runs from your home to the property line is owned and maintained by the homeowner.
