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.
If you see this image please pass along to a friend so they have the chance to clean and camera inspect their sewer line before they get into this problem.
Tree roots aren’t your friend and they only can harm you’re sewer line.
STOP COVERING UP YOUR CLEAN OUTS.
The worst possible mistake is to cover up your clean-outs to access drains. Main sewer openings in basements are being covered up with carpet, tile and who knows what else. People are forgetting that these lines need to be cleaned out from time to time. Installing a clean-out access panel to hide the pipe is the way to go. Without a clean-out to clean your pipe the job will either take longer or not get done the proper way. Don’t wasting your money and be smart before covering over a stack clean-out in the wall or anywhere for that matter.
Call your local plumber today and ask before you act.
