Going through all the pictures of tree roots our company Ken’s Sewer Service pulled out from sewer lines, this had to be top 5.
Roots also known as “tree roots” grow in sewer line weather you want them to or not. There is no way to get rid of them. By not maintaining your sewer line and cleaning your sewer system yearly roots will grow thicker and bigger. Eventually tree roots will break though your drain pipe and end up costing you major pocket book money to replace your sewer line.
This root our company pulled from a clients sewer line was over 5 feet long. This is one of many roots this size we extracted from clients sewer lines this past year. We keep many pictures of impressive roots to show our clients what our company is capable of pulling out of sewer lines. Clients are always amazed and surprised what’s inside their sewer lines. When our company diagnosis a sewer line with our camera technology, clients love seeing whats growing and living inside their line.
St. Louis Park Drain cleaning & Plumbing is what our company thrives at.

You never know what’s inside your sewer line until you clean and camera your line.
Hire Ken’s Sewer Service for your next drain/sewer cleaning and video camera inspection.
Each and every day we get calls from clients that have a clogged or plugged sewer line. Most of the time it’s tree roots that keep coming back. Once our company cleans your sewer line property we suggest having preventative maintenance on your line annually. If a severe issue arises our company as well can preform video camera sewer line inspection. Our clients that have their sewer line professional cleaned are far happier then those clients who choose to wait. Cleaning your sewer drain before a back-up occurs will also save on your pocket book.
Having your sewer line cleaned yearly will slow down root growth from breaking your pipe apart even further. Scale is another source of debris that develops throughout the entire year in your sewer line. When scale has a chance to harden it will also take time to smooth down the inside of your pipe. The only way to get rid of roots is by excavation but most people don’t want to spend the thousands of dollars until they truly need to.

“It’s National Ice Cream Soda Day! Take the time to enjoy this frothy drink, comprised of a few scoops of ice cream in any carbonated beverage. It’s the perfect thing to cool you off on this June day.
Ice cream sodas were invented by Robert Green in 1874 during Philadelphia’s sesquicentennial celebration. Legend has it that Mr. Green added vanilla ice cream to the soda he sold after he ran out of ice (though Mr. Green claims he had dreamt up the innovation prior to the event). Intentional or not, it was a delicious way to keep the sodas cold, and they were an instant hit. Green was so proud of his creation that he even had the phrase “Originator of the Ice Cream Soda” engraved on his tombstone!
These days, there are many delicious variations of the original ice cream soda, including root beer floats, Boston coolers, and purple cows. To celebrate National Ice Cream Soda Day, all you need is soda, a few scoops of ice cream, and a straw!”

Having a sewer line well over a hundred feet normally requires an outside clean out. First step in locating if you have an outside clean out is by calling your local sewer city department. Most the time they know where your sewer line taps into theirs which is extremely important as well. If the city doesn’t have records showing if you have an outside opening the next step is to hire a private plumbing contractor with camera technology. Make sure you tell them the length of camera you need, not all companies have the footage that will suit your needs. If your line is clean the camera will show a better picture, so have your line cleaned before you camera.
Once the camera goes into your sewer line they can check for openings that you might have in your yard. At that point a device will be used to find the camera underground from outside and pin point where that outside opening is located. Having an outside opening is worth all the money in the world to find for future problems.
