Some people are not as excited as us when we see this amount of tree roots removed and cut out from a sewer line. When our technicians send us pictures like this one below we are happy that we saved a client from spending a ton of money at that time.
Weather you own a commercial or residential property tree roots find a way inside your sewer line. Typically, all it takes is the smallest crack in a pipe. It does not matter what type of pipe, tree roots always break down your pipe at some point. This client above we saved thousands of dollars when we cleaned their sewer line and kept them from having to excavate when other companies said that would be the only way to open and get their line working functionally again.
Cleaning main sewer lines often and on routine maintenance will save thousands of dollars that you could spend elsewhere or at least have time to save up and not get hit with an unexpected expense. Have your main sewer line camera inspected before it is to late. Weather you are buying a house or have lived in a house for a long while, we can not stress enough how important it is to have your sewer line camera inspected and cleaned. There is no different between this and having your car brought in for a oil change several times a year.
From time to time to catch a great view of what tree roots look like in a sewer line. As you can tell in the picture above these tree roots fully took over the sewer line. When this happens the only way to remove them is to excavate which isn’t a cheap process. It takes a team of good technicians and expensive equipment to solve these types of problems. Once we remove the tree roots depending on how much work needs to be done with the sewer line to get it up to par and functioning properly we recommend cleaning your sewer line yearly.

One of the dirtiest jobs in plumbing. Can you imagine cleaning a urinal in a commercial building that everyone uses.
When tackling cleaning and unclogging a urinal there are sometimes multiple way to perform this type of work. No matter how you clean a urinal it’s going to be a very dirty smelly drain cleaning job. Urinals are just like toilets, very breakable and must be handled with care from whomever is working on them. Once you get the urinal removed from the wall it sits on make sure to place down carefully. With the urinal removed from the wall you now have access to the drain itself. We’ve unclogged urinals in the first 5ft and sometimes we’ve had to run cables over 50ft cause the plumbing didn’t tie in for a while. Worst case scenario is hat you have to bring a jetter to open and remove hard built up calcium within the drain line.
If you neglect cleaning your main sewer line you will see massive amounts of tree roots like this in your sewer line. Chances are if you wait this long to clean your line you will have a pipe that might be in need of excavation. We try and stress to have your line cleaned at minimum yearly but people don’t want to spend the money. The rule of thumb is ever year you don’t clean your sewer line you’ll end up spending on repair later in life.

When this happens outside a property it becomes less of an emergency but is still crucial to repair in a timely manner. But when a valve breaks like this inside a house you can expect a flood of you aren’t home or don’t notice this. Many times it happens when at work or when on vacation. The problem is you never know when the next pipe may break.
Knowing who you can call in case of an emergency is sometimes the best you can do.
