    Backups can occur from a variety of reasons, most commonly in older areas during wet weather. A common cause is from ground or rain water entering the sewer system through cracks in city or home sewer pipes or from outdated roof or foundation drain connections. Other causes include: sewer blockages from grease, debris, or tree roots; collapses or other deteriorated conditions in a city or home sewer line.
