You try to be cautious and make sure you don’t put anything down the drain that would plug your pipes. You don’t put anything down the toilet besides toilet paper; you don’t put coffee grounds, meat, or fats down the garbage disposal; and you make sure to have filters 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 forgetting the most destructive problem of all: tree roots.
Trees crave nutrients and their roots are through which they get nutrients, so the point of the tree root is constantly “looking for” and “reaching toward” a source of moisture and nutrients and they are very attracted to a leaking sewer line that requires repair.
Most of time, tree roots will leave fine, intact sewer lines alone. They typically only disturb leaking, cracked, 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 pipes and lower the water flow, leaving you with overflows and potentially 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 typically be easier (and cost less) than a completely broken pipe, so if you think there is an issue with your sewer line, especially if you feel that tree roots are making their way into the pipe, call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing immediately.
Sewer line repair professionals at Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing will use a sewer inspection camera to decide whether or not the pipe has a tree root worry. Once the problem has been confirmed, our sewer line repair expert will review 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.
Remember, faster growing trees, such as poplar, locust, or sycamore, may cause more trouble 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 causing a problem. Also, remember to plant trees a good distance from your sewer lines, that way you can help prevent damage and prevent those pesky (and sometimes costly) 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 invaded 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 come out and see if you need a sewer line repair or do a complete plumbing maintenance to make sure your pipes are in working order.
