Sewer lines can fail for a number of reasons.
The most common are water leaks from joints or couplers that are not water tight and over time can erode the support out from under the pipe. Then tree roots can get in and that’s when worms and bugs start to invade. Rats can then invade the sewer line for food and they will dig up to the surface. Holes in a lawn are a good sign that the sewer line has been invaded by rats.
The next type is water leaking from pipe that’s not water tight like concrete pipe it will leak out very slowly over time. Roots will grow under the pipe to get to the water and nutrients / plant food. This can go on without you knowing it and the sewer line will work for a long time with no hint that pipe failure can happen, and it can cost thousands of dollars to repair, what can be done! Well if your house was built before 1970 it’s a good idea to have a sewer scope done, it will show you the type of pipe and what shape it’s in, for what it costs versus what it can show you, well worth it.
