You try to be cautious and ensure you avoid putting anything down the drain that would clog your pipes. You don’t flush anything besides toilet paper; you don’t put pasta, bones, 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 help stop a costly sewer line repair?
Go outside because you may be forgetting the most destructive problem of all: tree roots.
Trees crave nutrients and their roots are how they get it, so the tip of the tree root is always “seeking” and “reaching to” a source of moisture and nutrients and they are drawn to a leaking sewer line that needs repair.
Usually, tree roots will leave fine, undamaged sewer lines alone. They usually only invade leaking, broken, or damaged lines buried within the top 24 inches of the earth. When this happens the original damage not only becomes worse, the tree roots can seriously clog the sewer system and decrease the water flow, resulting in 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 usually be easier (and cost less) than a burst pipe, so if you believe there’s a problem with your sewer line, especially if you believe tree roots are getting into the pipe, call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing right away.
Sewer line repair experts 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 problem. Once the issue has been determined, our sewer line repair technician will discuss all of your options with you and help you choose 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 ash, silver maples, or willow, may cause more problems because they grow faster. Slower growing trees are a better option, but they still need to be removed and another tree replanted every seven to ten years to avoid their roots from causing a problem. Also, always plant trees far from your sewer lines, that way you can help prevent damage and stop those pesky (and sometimes 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 problems at all, call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing in the U.S. and we are happy to come to your home 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.
