3 Consequences of a Broken Sewer Pipe
Read on for the consequences of a broken sewer pipe:
- Repair costs. Unfortunately, repair costs are just to be expected in this scenario! When your pipe breaks, this is unavoidable.

In addition, a broken sewer pipe that is not immediately repaired will lead to deep structural issues within your plumbing.
- Gases. One of the major consequences of a broken sewer pipe? The release of potentially deadly gases! When sewage systems release certain gases, this can automatically leas to gas poisoning – which can be detrimental to you and your family’s health. Be sure to be on the lookout for gas poisoning or other types of sickness, if you’ve recently experienced a broken pipe. Your family’s health may likely depend on it.
- Other harmful bacteria. Broken sewer pipes aren’t just costly to repair, they also release harmful gases (as discussed above) and various forms of bacteria. If you come into contact with some of the bacteria that is released, you might contract anything from E. coli to salmonella. Not good!
