This type of problem can be due to a variety of causes. Although some do it yourself repairs can appear to work, they can magnify situations and mask the actual cause. If the clog is due to damage in the septic pipe, neither chemical cleaners nor snaking the line will resolve the problem and it could make matters much worse.

Tree and shrub roots can cause leaks in pipes. This can be caused by disruption of the soil by construction, flooding, freezing and thawing, and decaying pipe materials allowing the roots access.
