You try to be careful and assure you avoid putting anything down the drain that would jam your pipes. You don’t place anything in the toilet except toilet paper; you don’t put eggshells, stringy vegetables, or grease down the sink in the kitchen; and you make sure to have strainers on all your drains. But have you covered all your bases in order to avoid an expensive sewer line repair?
Look outside because you may be ignoring the most detrimental problem of all: tree roots.
Trees crave nutrients and their roots are how they get it, so the point of the tree root is continuously “looking for” and “reaching for” a source of moisture and nutrients and they are enticed by a leaking sewer line in need of repair.
Most of time, tree roots will leave healthy, unbroken sewer lines alone. They typically only disturb leaking, broken, or damaged lines buried within the top couple feet of the earth. When this takes place the initial damage not only becomes worse, the tree roots can totally clog the sewer lines and decrease the water flow, leaving you with overflows and possibly flooding your home or building.
But what should you do? Call a sewer line repair expert in the U.S..
A sewer line repair will usually be easier (and cost less) than a ruptured pipe, so if you think there is an issue with your sewer line, especially if you think tree roots are getting into the pipe, call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing as soon as possible.
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 problem. Once the issue has been confirmed, our sewer line repair professional will discuss all of your options with you and help you determine the best plan, whether that’s a trenchless sewer line replacement or just getting rid of the tree roots.
Remember, faster growing trees, such as poplar, oak, or basswood, may cause more trouble because they grow more rapidly. Slower growing trees are a better option, but they still need to be replaced every six to ten years to avoid their roots from causing a problem. Also, make sure you plant trees away from your sewer lines, that way you can help stop damage and prevent those pesky (and often expensive) sewer line repairs. If you’re unsure 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 needs 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 full plumbing maintenance to make sure your pipes are good to go.
