How Tree Roots can Damage your Sewer Line

tree roots

The penetration of tree roots into the sewer lines is a problem that can eventually cause the need to replace the pipes. If you want to avoid a complete sewer line replacement in the near future, then you need to keep tree roots out of sewer lines. Tree root infiltration causes damage to the sewer line. Sewer lines create a nutrient-rich environment for tree roots to thrive on. Once roots have made their way into the sewer, they can block the pipes and cause drainage problems, which often requires complete replacement of the sewer lines. There are things that can be done to prevent root damage and keep your home’s waste plumbing flowing freely.

If you are a property owner who is experiencing sewer backups, you will discover that tree roots in your sewers are to be blamed for your sewer problems. You need to understand that tree roots invade sewer lines that have broken as a result of earth settlement, age or dried joints, and leak sewage. Adjacent roots from shrubbery or trees, which need nutrients and moisture, soon invade the surrounding area. Tree roots enter the already defective sewer line and eventually block the flow. If you suspect that tree roots are invading your sewer line, call a licensed plumbing company and have the sewer line cleared.
