You try to be careful and ensure you don’t put anything down the drain that would obstruct your pipes. You don’t place anything in the toilet besides toilet paper; you don’t put pasta, stringy vegetables, or fats down the garbage disposal; and you make sure to have screens on all your drains. But have you thought of everything in order to avoid an expensive sewer line repair?
Check outside because you may be forgetting the most damaging problem of all: tree roots.
Trees desire nutrients and their roots are how they get it, so the tip of the tree root is continuously “searching for” and “reaching to” a source of moisture and nutrients and they are drawn to a leaking sewer line that requires repair.
Usually, tree roots will leave strong, undamaged sewer lines alone. They typically only invade leaking, broken, or damaged lines buried within the top couple feet of the ground. When this takes place the first damage not only becomes worse, the tree roots can completely clog the sewer lines and lower the water flow, leaving you with 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 believe there’s 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 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 worry. Once the issue has been confirmed, our sewer line repair professional will go over all of your options with you and help you decide the best way to proceed, whether that’s a trenchless sewer line replacement or just getting rid of the tree roots.
Note, faster growing trees, such as ash, sweetgum, or basswood, may cause more problems because they grow more quickly. Slower growing trees are a better option, but they still need to be swapped out every eight to ten years to avoid their roots from becoming an issue. Also, make sure you plant trees a good distance from your sewer lines, that way you can help stop 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 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 visit and see if you need a sewer line repair or do a complete plumbing maintenance to make sure your pipes are good to go.
