You try to be careful and make sure you avoid putting anything down the drain that would clog your pipes. You don’t place anything in the toilet except toilet paper; you don’t put eggshells, stringy vegetables, or grease down the garbage disposal; and you make sure to have filters on all your drains. But have you covered all your bases in order to prevent a high-priced sewer line repair?
Check outside because you may be forgetting the most destructive problem of all: tree roots.
Trees want nutrients and their roots are through which they get nutrients, so the point of the tree root is constantly “seeking” and “reaching to” a source of moisture and nutrients and they are enticed by a leaking sewer line that requires repair.
Most of time, tree roots will leave healthy, intact sewer lines alone. They typically only disturb leaking, cracked, or damaged lines buried within the top two feet of the soil. When this takes place the first damage does not only get worse, the tree roots can actually clog the sewer system and reduce the water flow, leaving you with overflows and even flooding your home or building.
So what do you do? Call a sewer line repair company in Edmonton.
A sewer line repair will most likely be easier (and cheaper) than a ruptured pipe, so if you suspect a problem with your sewer line, especially if you think tree roots are making their way into the pipe, call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning as soon as possible.
Sewer line repair experts at Service Experts will use a sewer inspection camera to confirm whether or not the pipe has a tree root problem. Once the problem has been determined, our sewer line repair professional will go over all of your options with you and help you determine the best plan, whether that’s a trenchless sewer line replacement or just removing the tree roots.
Keep in mind, faster growing trees, such as ash, oak, or willow, may cause more problems because they grow faster. Slower growing trees are a better option, but they still need to be replaced every eight to ten years to avoid their roots from causing a problem. Also, make sure you plant trees a good distance from your sewer lines, that way you can help prevent damage and stop those pesky (and often costly) sewer line repairs. If you’re not sure where your sewer lines are, ask Service Experts to flag the path of the sewer pipes.
So if you think your tree roots have come in contact with your sewer line or you have any plumbing problems at all, call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning in Edmonton and we are happy to come out and see if you need a sewer line repair or do a total plumbing maintenance to make sure your pipes are good to go.
