However, its main disadvantage is its fairly brittle structure that has a tendency to crack upon application of significant amount of pressure. It is further aggravated when tree roots penetrate the crack and make their way inside usually being drawn to a water source.
Nowadays, when the sewer line has been damaged and needs to be re-routed the clay sewer pipes are being replaced with PVC.
