Tree roots can invade your drains and sewer lines, causing blockages and leaks throughout your property. Before it leads to major replacements in your plumbing system, give Kay Plumbing a call.

“Inspect plumbing pipes for roots in your sewer line”

Tree root infiltration through your sewer line can wreak havoc on your plumbing system. If not cleared in time, you could end up with cracked pipes and water leakage throughout your property. Sometimes it’s easy to diagnose, as you’ll see debris coming from your faucets or shower heads. Though a lot of the time you’ll notice tell-tale symptoms like increasing energy bills even though you’re using the same amount of water, or:

  • Small sinkholes across your yard
  • Low water pressure
  • Frequent clogs and blockages
  • Slow drainage
  • Nasty odors
  • Lush areas or new roots growing near your pipes

Clearing tree roots from your plumbing system can be as easy as hydro jetting your sewer lines or as wide scale as replacing a portion of your drains and sewers in a worst-case scenario. Either way, it’s important to have a professional inspect your lines to ensure no further damage takes place.

Frequently Asked Question (FAQs)

How do tree roots get into my sewer?

Tree roots are attracted to sewer lines because they provide an easy water source. When there is not enough rain, the roots will seek out water, and your pipes are a prime target. Your pipes may be in danger if tree or plant roots crack the pipe, which lets more root intrusion occur. Certain pipe materials, like metal, are susceptible to cracking with age and thus will be at greater risk over time.
