You try to be cautious and assure you keep from putting anything down the drain that would jam your pipes. You don’t flush anything except toilet paper; you don’t put coffee grounds, bones, or grease down the garbage disposal; and you make sure to have filters on all your drains. But have you thought of everything in order to avoid a high-priced sewer line repair?
Go 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 end of the tree root is constantly “searching for” and “reaching toward” a source of moisture and nutrients and they are enticed by a leaking sewer line that needs repair.
Most of time, tree roots will leave fine, undamaged sewer lines alone. They usually only occupy leaking, split, or damaged lines buried within the top two feet of the soil. When this occurs the first damage does not only get worse, the tree roots can completely clog the sewer lines and reduce the water flow, leaving you with overflows and even flooding your home or building.
But what can you do? Call a sewer line repair expert in the U.S..
A sewer line repair will typically be easier (and cost less) than a burst pipe, so if you think there is a problem with your sewer line, especially if you feel that tree roots are growing into the pipe, call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing as soon as possible.
Sewer line repair professionals 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 issue. Once the issue has been determined, our sewer line repair expert will discuss all of your options with you and help you decide the best plan, whether that’s a trenchless sewer line replacement or just removing the tree roots.
Note, faster growing trees, such as poplar, sweetgum, or willow, may cause more issues because they grow more rapidly. Slower growing trees are a better choice, but they still need to be swapped out every seven to ten years to avoid their roots from becoming an issue. Also, always plant trees a good distance from your sewer lines, that way you can help stop damage and prevent 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 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 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.
