Tree Root Removal
Local Service Pro Plumbing, Your Local Neighborhood Plumber, can handle removal of tree roots that are likely to lead to collapsed sewer lines. The cause is not always an intrusion from tree roots, but can also be the soil collapsing down on sewer lines due to pressure from the roots.
If there is a tree in the area of a sewer line that goes un-inspected, the problem can become much more widespread and lead to severed joints and collapsed sections of piping that are more spread out. Even if you don’t have major problems caused by tree roots, Your Local Neighborhood Plumber can detect some areas that could become a problem when performing regular inspections on your piping and sewer lines. Don’t let the problem get too big– tree roots can outright break your pipes or lead to a full blockage.
There are several methods that we can use to fix your tree root problems as it relates to your home or business’ plumbing. If there is a blockage in your piping, we can employ the use of a snake or hydro-jetter to clear the blockage. If the root intrusion has become out of hand, often the only remedy is to replace the piping.
Sometimes digging and cutting off the tree roots could be necessary. Some folks opt for using a root-repellent inside of their soil and outside of their pipes. Many people would rather not opt for having to resort to chemicals to fix this problem. This is why it’s important to perform regular maintenance and camera inspections on your plumbing systems. It might cost you a bit here and there, but it can save you a lot of money in the long run.
In summary, the best thing to do is to be proactive. If you have a developed root problem, we can help with that too.
