You try to be cautious and assure you avoid putting anything down the drain that would obstruct your pipes. You don’t flush anything except toilet paper; you don’t put pasta, stringy vegetables, or grease down the sink in the kitchen; and you make sure to have screens on all your drains. But have you thought of everything in order to avoid a costly sewer line repair?
Go outside because you may be missing 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 always “looking for” and “reaching to” a source of moisture and nutrients and they are very attracted to a leaking sewer line that needs repair.
Typically, tree roots will leave strong, undamaged sewer lines alone. They typically only occupy leaking, broken, or damaged lines buried within the top couple feet of the soil. When this happens the initial damage does not only get worse, the tree roots can seriously clog the sewer pipes and lower the water flow, leaving you with overflows and potentially 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 less expensive) than a completely broken pipe, so if you think there is an issue with your sewer line, especially if you think tree roots are making their way into the pipe, call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing as soon as possible.
Sewer line repair experts at Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing will use a sewer inspection camera to decide whether or not the sewer system has a tree root issue. Once the issue has been determined, our sewer line repair professional will go over all of your options with you and help you choose the best plan, whether that’s a trenchless sewer line replacement or just cutting out the tree roots.
Remember, faster growing trees, such as poplar, oak, or sycamore, may cause more issues because they grow more rapidly. Slower growing trees are a better choice, but they still need to be removed and another tree replanted every six to ten years to avoid their roots from causing a problem. Also, always plant trees a good distance from your sewer lines, that way you can help avoid damage and stop those pesky (and sometimes costly) sewer line repairs. If you’re not sure 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 entered your sewer line or you have any plumbing issues 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 full plumbing maintenance to make sure your pipes are good to go.
