You try to be careful and assure you keep from putting anything down the drain that would clog your pipes. You don’t flush anything except toilet paper; you don’t put eggshells, bones, or grease down the kitchen sink; and you make sure to have strainers on all your drains. But have you done absolutely everything in order to avoid a costly sewer line repair?
Check outside because you may be ignoring the most destructive problem of all: tree roots.
Trees desire nutrients and their roots are how they get it, so the tip of the tree root is constantly “searching for” and “reaching toward” a source of moisture and nutrients and they are enticed by a leaking sewer line that needs repair.
Usually, tree roots will leave healthy, undamaged sewer lines alone. They normally only invade leaking, broken, or damaged lines buried within the top 24 inches of the earth. When this happens the original damage not only gets worse, the tree roots can totally clog the sewer system and reduce the water flow, leaving you with overflows and possibly flooding your home or building.
But what can you do? Call a sewer line repair professional in the U.S..
A sewer line repair will most likely be easier (and cost less) than a ruptured pipe, so if you believe there’s a problem with your sewer line, especially if you believe tree roots are growing into the pipe, call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing right away.
Sewer line repair experts at Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing will use a sewer inspection camera to confirm whether or not the sewer system has a tree root worry. Once the problem has been determined, 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.
Remember, faster growing trees, such as cottonwood, sweetgum, or basswood, may cause more trouble because they grow more rapidly. Slower growing trees are a better option, but they still need to be removed and another tree replanted every eight to ten years to avoid their roots from damaging the sewer lines. Also, remember to plant trees away from your sewer lines, that way you can help avoid damage and prevent 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 come in contact with your sewer line or you have any plumbing problems at all, call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing in the U.S. and we are happy to come out 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.
