The picture below is showing a whole that was hand dug to repair a broken sewer line.
It’s never fun when a sewer line is broken and needs to be excavated but what choice do you have. Fix your plumbing pipe or not use any water. You choose.
Sewer rooting is the service of removing roots from your sewer line or floor drain. Roots tend to grow anywhere and everywhere. There is no stopping root growth. The only way to keep roots from getting into your sewer line is to excavate. 90% of the time that’s not needed and very pricey. Once tree roots enter your sewer line there is no getting rid of them. Tree roots grow and grow. By cleaning your sewer line annually you will slow down the process of roots growth from spreading. Most our clients have never had to dig/excavate if they maintain cleaning on their sewer line.
Never dig unless you get two opinions. Remember the service of excavating your yard is not cheap. Don’t just let any company talk you into digging unless they can 100% prove your line needs it.
