Root Blockage

Is your landscaping interfering with your home’s plumbing?

Many people are unaware of just how much damage tree roots can pose on plumbing. But while they may grow slowly, they can cost you thousands of dollars in plumbing repair costs. Tree roots naturally seek water underground, and if those roots detect any moisture emanating from your underground pipes, they may grow toward those pipes. Over time, they may even grow into a pipe through a perforation or crack, causing the pipe to split or blocking the pipe completely.

Fortunately, regular rooter services can help prevent root blockages. The rooter service you receive will vary depending on what your plumbing system needs. Your plumber might apply root killing chemicals (such as RootX), use a plumbing snake to remove small blockages, or perform a hydro-jet cleaning.

For those times when a root blockage does occur, an experienced plumber can help you address the problem with as little headache as possible. A plumbing snake or hydro-jet cleaning can clear smaller blockages. For a more serious root blockage, your plumber might recommend having some of your pipes replaced completely. An in-line camera inspection can help determine where a root blockage is in your system and diagnose just how serious of a blockage it is. Keep in close contact with your plumber to help keep root blockages from wreaking havoc on your residential or commercial plumbing system.
