As development progresses, several constructions may affect the original underground water lines causing considerable damages into these pipes. If these cracks become bigger, it may eventually invite sand, small rocks and particles to enter these passageways creating a solid jam which will result to clogged drains. Water flowing underneath may back fire shooting it back to the source creating flood and deluge. Common causes may not only happen outside but more often than not, inside of our household. Grease and food particles flow continuously in kitchen sinks leading to the water pipes set underneath, it may not initially cause clogging but in time, as these substances are mixed with coagulating materials, they form a solid residue in the linings of the pipe walls causing these to block water to flow to its destination.
