Main Sewer Line Tree Roots

We can’t stress en enough that tree roots grow in sewer lines and they should be cleaned out before a backed up line occurs.

Main sewer lines have tree roots that grow all year round and cutting them out is just like taking your car in for an oil change or getting yourself a haircut. Just because you don’t see an issue doesn’t mean it’s not happening and not causing a major problem. Drain and sewer cleaning should be thought about and scheduled just like anything else you plan in life.

Sump Pump Motor & Basket

You may think nothing of your sump pump but what does it really mean?

Most houses need and have a sump pump in their homes. The reason is so water doesn’t get into your home. Low spots in homes tend to have annoying standing water siting their. Sometimes in the laundry room and sometimes in a nice carpeted family area which either way can get really old, quick.

Simply put what does a sump pump do? What is their main function?

Sump pumps remove water from underneath your house before it raises up and gets into your home. Which means if the pump motor doesn’t work during a major flooding storm you could end up flooding your house.

Every spring test your sump pump system or hire a company to come out and help. It’s better to pay a service call then to re-do your entire basement due to flooding.

Holy Moly Roots!

Tree roots are inevitable for growing in your sewer line the key is how to maintain them and control them.

No two sewer lines are the same. Sewer lines have several different types of pipe, they age all at their own pace, and a huge factor is how the ground moves/shifts around the pipe and land. Some pipes clog up more often and some never clog at all. Maybe the reason that some sewer lines don’t clog is because they are newer and maintained better. Older sewer lines are going to be worse then a brand new main sewer line. Sewer lines replacement is extremely expensive to install so drain sewer pipes that break are most often just repaired in short sections, rather then replacing an entire line.

Main sewer lines are always forgotten about cause there not seen. Things that aren’t seen or talked about are basically like they don’t exist. Take a minute and think about everything you throw down your drains. For example some drains that we use on a daily basis is your tubs, sinks, showers, toilets. These are places we dump debris down that travel into your main sewer line. If debris doesn’t travel through your sewer line and into the city sewer, you can imagine that your line will plug up eventually and cause a mess in your home.

What I meant before about all sewer lines being different is because some are clay, some cast iron, some transite, other newer ones are put together with PVC pipe. Sewer lines that have root growth need to be maintained and cleaned more often then sewer pipes that don’t have root growth. On the other hand though sewer lines that have low spots, dips or sagging lines have other issues as well. Low, sagging sewer line have issues of debris that sit and build up which makes sewer lines plug up and cause a mess in your home. Sewer lines that have separated pipes also get blocked up due to debris that catches up on rough edges.

Bottom line if you own a property have your main sewer line cleaned and maybe even inspected to see the currant condition of your sewer line. Get your questions answered and stop guessing about your plumbing. We have technology that can clean and camera your line.

We look forward to hearing from you!
