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.
Anytime we get involved with a loose or moving shut off valve issues are bound to happen. Because that the wall is closed up we obviously can’t see behind to actually understand why the pipe is completely loose. Working on any plumbing that can’t be seen you have to be extra careful.
If your having any toilet issues call us today and we’d be glad to help you!
Roots are around and not going away. What drain cleaning companies like ours have to do is explain to our clients how to maintain sewer lines. Controlling tree root growth is possible and were here to help you.
Don’t hire a company that is in it for the one-time deal. Talk with family members and friends and see who’ve they used in the past. See if they got treated well all around from service and ordering service to the final price tag.
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.

This picture was taken from one of our clients homes. The red square is pointing to where the main sewer stack line goes. The clean-out to access this drain line is at the bottom of the pipe. This client has no floor clean-out in the home and we would have to remove the water heater just to clean the sewer line if they were to ever clog up. In this situation a floor clean out should be installed or an outside clean out should in installed. We suggested this be done before the line backs-up and to have the line inspected with camera technology. Talk about cluttered and inconvenient.
