How Tree Roots Can Damage Your Sewer Lines

Trees not only provide fresh air and shade, but they also add beauty to your landscape. However, since their roots expand underground, they can do a number on your sewer lines. As your expert in sewer line repair in Akron, OH, C. Lee Services uses state-of-the-art technology to identify if tree roots are causing a problem in your pipeline.

The Problem With Tree Roots

Naturally, tree roots grow towards sources of nutrients and water. Your sewer pipes attract tree roots because they hold all things the roots search for. They find their way into the tiny cracks and gaps on your pipes.

Once inside, the tree roots can trap wastewater, grease, toilet tissue, and other debris flowing through your line, gradually forming clogs and impeding water flow. Worse, the unstoppable force of growing roots will ultimately exert excessive pressure on your lines, causing sewer pipes to break and result in leaks that necessitate sewer pipe line repair.

Fortunately, there are several ways to tell if you’re dealing with tree root intrusion. If you notice persistent clogs, slow drains, gurgling sounds from your toilet, contact a licensed plumber in Akron, OH, to examine your sewer lines.

What to Do About It

If these issues occur, hiring a plumber to conduct a video camera inspection is imperative. Our in-depth sewer inspections can help you find out if tree roots have intruded your lines. 

In most cases, we can address them with trenchless repairs and hydro jetting. If the roots have caused irreversible damage, however, we may recommend a new sewer installation. Whatever the job, it’s important to prevent raw sewage from flooding into your home and causing structural damage.

Performing routine maintenance will help you avoid costly sewer line replacement. It allows you to detect any threatening issues and fix them before they worsen. It also ensures that your sewer lines are in tip-top shape and safe against intrusive tree roots.
