You try to be wary and assure you don’t put anything down the drain that would plug your pipes. You don’t flush anything but toilet paper; you don’t put coffee grounds, bones, or fats down the kitchen sink; and you make sure to have strainers on all your drains. But have you thought of everything in order to help stop a costly sewer line repair?
Look outside because you may be overlooking the most detrimental problem of all: tree roots.
Trees desire nutrients and their roots are through which they get nutrients, so the point of the tree root is constantly “searching for” and “reaching for” a source of moisture and nutrients and they are very attracted to a leaking sewer line that needs repair.
Most of time, tree roots will leave strong, intact sewer lines alone. They typically only invade leaking, split, or damaged lines buried within the top 24 inches of the earth. When this happens the initial damage does not only get worse, the tree roots can seriously clog the sewer system and decrease the water flow, causing overflows and possibly flooding your home or building.
But what should you do? Call a sewer line repair professional in the U.S..
A sewer line repair will typically be easier (and cheaper) than a ruptured pipe, so if you suspect an issue with your sewer line, especially if you believe tree roots are getting into the pipe, call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing immediately.
Sewer line repair technicians at Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing will use a sewer inspection camera to decide whether or not the sewer line has a tree root issue. Once the problem has been confirmed, our sewer line repair technician will review all of your options with you and help you determine the best way to proceed, whether that’s a trenchless sewer line replacement or just getting rid of the tree roots.
Keep in mind, faster growing trees, such as poplar, oak, or willow, may cause more problems because they grow more rapidly. Slower growing trees are a better alternative, but they still need to be replaced every eight to ten years to avoid their roots from becoming an issue. Also, always plant trees far from your sewer lines, that way you can help avoid damage and stop those pesky (and often expensive) sewer line repairs. If you’re not confident where your sewer lines are, ask Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing to flag the path of the sewer pipes.
So if you think your tree roots have invaded your sewer line or you have any plumbing needs at all, call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing in the U.S. and we are happy to visit and see if you need a sewer line repair or do a complete plumbing maintenance to make sure your pipes are in tip-top shape.
