You try to be cautious and ensure you don’t put anything down the drain that would clog your pipes. You don’t flush anything except toilet paper; you don’t put eggshells, meat, or fats down the kitchen sink; and you make sure to have filters on all your drains. But have you thought of everything in order to help stop a costly sewer line repair?
Check outside because you may be missing the most damaging problem of all: tree roots.
Trees crave nutrients and their roots are how they get it, so the end of the tree root is constantly “looking for” and “reaching toward” a source of moisture and nutrients and they are very attracted to a leaking sewer line in need of repair.
Most of time, tree roots will leave healthy, undamaged sewer lines alone. They typically only occupy leaking, cracked, or damaged lines buried within the top two feet of the dirt. When this takes place the initial damage not only becomes worse, the tree roots can actually clog the sewer lines and lower the water flow, causing overflows and even flooding your home or building.
So what do you do? Call a sewer line repair expert in Fort Worth.
A sewer line repair will most likely be easier (and cheaper) than a burst pipe, so if you suspect an issue with your sewer line, especially if you think tree roots are getting into the pipe, call Calverley Service Experts immediately.
Sewer line repair technicians at Calverley 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 expert will discuss all of your options with you and help you decide the best way to move forward, whether that’s a trenchless sewer line replacement or just getting rid of the tree roots.
Keep in mind, faster growing trees, such as ash, sweetgum, or willow, may cause more trouble because they grow more quickly. Slower growing trees are a better choice, but they still need to be swapped out every six to ten years to avoid their roots from becoming an issue. Also, remember to plant trees away from your sewer lines, that way you can help avoid damage and avoid those pesky (and sometimes expensive) sewer line repairs. If you’re unsure where your sewer lines are, ask Calverley Service Experts to flag the path of the sewer pipes.
So if you think your tree roots have invaded your sewer line or you have any plumbing needs at all, call Calverley Service Experts in Fort Worth and we are happy to come out and see if you need a sewer line repair or do a full plumbing maintenance to make sure your pipes are in tip-top shape.
