Common Problems with Tree Root Intrusion
Tree roots tend to get into sewer and drain lines over time, often through small cracks or openings in underground lines. This often results in an assortment of problems, such as:
- Multiple drain clogs
- Slow drains
- Odd drain sounds
- Sewer or drain line leaks
- Broken lines
Hydro jetting is generally the most effective way to remove tree roots from drain and sewer lines. In some instances, it may be possible to use a drain snake or auger to break up the roots. If there’s damage to the sewer or drain line, it may be necessary to repair the pipe itself.
Benefits of Tree Root Removal
Tree roots don’t belong in sewer and drain lines. One of the top benefits of having roots removed by our plumber in East Los Angeles, CA, or the surrounding areas is having drains that work better. You’ll also gain added flow capacity once the roots are removed, which resolves issues with slow drainage. Another perk that goes along with tree root removal is an increase in property value. What’s more, any related drain and sewer issues will be taken care of, which further extends the lifespan of your underground pipes.
Tree Root Removal FAQs
We advise against it. Chemical cleaning products tend to be corrosive, so you could end up creating entirely new problems.
One step you can take is to have your sewer and drains lines inspected every few years. This allows root issues to be discovered and dealt with sooner rather than later.
With new plantings, keep the trees at least 6-10 feet away from sewer or drain lines. You want to leave room for the roots to expand and grow in a way that doesn’t affect underground pipes.
Absolutely. Our technicians are well-trained in the use of hydro jetting equipment. We also inspect the sewer and drain lines first to make sure water jetting is appropriate.
Not always. It depends on the extent of the damage from the roots. We’ll do an inspection after the roots have been removed to determine if any further steps are necessary.
