You try to be wary and assure you keep from putting anything down the drain that would obstruct your pipes. You don’t put anything down the toilet but toilet paper; you don’t put coffee grounds, meat, or grease down the kitchen sink; and you make sure to have filters on all your drains. But have you thought of everything in order to avoid an expensive sewer line repair?
Go outside because you may be ignoring the most damaging problem of all: tree roots.
Trees want 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 enticed by a leaking sewer line in need of repair.
Most of time, tree roots will leave strong, unbroken sewer lines alone. They normally only disturb leaking, broken, or damaged lines buried within the top couple feet of the ground. When this happens the first damage does not only get worse, the tree roots can completely clog the sewer pipes and reduce the water flow, resulting in overflows and possibly flooding your home or building.
So what do you do? Call a sewer line repair professional in the U.S..
A sewer line repair will typically be easier (and cheaper) than a completely broken pipe, so if you think there is trouble with your sewer line, especially if you think tree roots are growing into the pipe, call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing immediately.
Sewer line repair experts at Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing will use a sewer inspection camera to confirm whether or not the sewer line has a tree root problem. Once the problem has been determined, our sewer line repair professional will go over all of your options with you and help you decide the best plan, whether that’s a trenchless sewer line replacement or just getting rid of the tree roots.
Note, faster growing trees, such as poplar, locust, or tuliptree, may cause more trouble because they grow faster. Slower growing trees are a better choice, but they still need to be replaced every eight to ten years to avoid their roots from causing a problem. Also, make sure you plant trees a good distance from your sewer lines, that way you can help prevent damage and avoid those pesky (and often 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 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 come out and see if you need a sewer line repair or do a total plumbing maintenance to make sure your pipes are in working order.
