You try to be cautious and assure you avoid putting anything down the drain that would plug your pipes. You don’t put anything down the toilet except toilet paper; you don’t put pasta, bones, or oils down the kitchen sink; and you make sure to have screens on all your drains. But have you covered all your bases in order to help stop a costly sewer line repair?
Look outside because you may be missing the most destructive problem of all: tree roots.
Trees want nutrients and their roots are how they get it, so the end of the tree root is constantly “searching for” and “reaching to” a source of moisture and nutrients and they are very attracted to a leaking sewer line in need of repair.
Typically, tree roots will leave fine, undamaged sewer lines alone. They typically only disturb leaking, cracked, or damaged lines buried within the top 24 inches of the dirt. When this takes place the first damage not only becomes worse, the tree roots can totally clog the sewer pipes and decrease the water flow, leaving you with overflows and potentially flooding your home or building.
So what do you do? Call a sewer line repair company in the U.S..
A sewer line repair will typically be easier (and less expensive) 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 technicians at Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing will use a sewer inspection camera to decide whether or not the pipe has a tree root issue. Once the problem has been determined, our sewer line repair expert will go over all of your options with you and help you determine the best plan, whether that’s a trenchless sewer line replacement or just removing the tree roots.
Keep in mind, faster growing trees, such as ash, silver maples, or willow, may cause more issues because they grow faster. Slower growing trees are a better alternative, but they still need to be removed and another tree replanted every eight to ten years to avoid their roots from causing a problem. Also, always plant trees away from your sewer lines, that way you can help stop damage and stop those pesky (and sometimes 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 entered 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 seasonal plumbing maintenance to make sure your pipes are in tip-top shape.
