- Clogged pipes can cause your drain line pipes to leak.
- The average cost of repairing a drain line break is $559 (this doesn’t account for the thousands or tens of thousands of dollars in damage it can do).
- One of the biggest reasons for pipes leaking is corrosion, especially with cast-iron pipes in older homes.
- Tree roots can also invade your pipes and cause damage.

- Food waste that doesn’t break down, like grease and oil, can be extremely damaging to your pipes causing clogs that may back up your sewage system as well.

What does Your Homeowner’s Insurance Policy Cover?
Depending on the severity of the damage to your home, the damage may fall under your flood insurance. Will your flood insurance cover damages from a flood that’s not a natural occurrence? Or will your homeowner’s insurance consider the drain line damage as water damage and cover it? When answering these questions, there can be a vast amount of complicated hoops for a homeowner to jump through.
Important Things to Know About Drain Line Damage
There is a difference between a drain line and a sewer line, although many homeowners get the two confused since they do work similarly. A drain line runs from sinks, showers, washing machines, and other appliances carrying only excess water, while a sewer line carries wastewater and solid waste from your home. Both lines can clog and become damaged. It is much more likely that your drain line will become damaged than a sewer line. Either of these occurrences can allow water to get into places that it shouldn’t, and it may cause mold damage.
Mold damage can be extremely detrimental to your health and your home. Do not attempt to remove or remediate the mold in your home; it can easily spread and cause you to become ill.
