Signs You Need Tree Root Removal

A common cause of drain and sewer backups is tree roots entering pipes through loose joints or cracks. As roots continue to grow inside pipes, they will cause a blockage in your sewer system or drains. Eventually, roots growing in sewer lines can cause your pipes to break, leading to property damage and costly plumbing repairs. Some common signs of tree roots in sewer lines include:

  • overflowing or slow flowing drains and is commonly exposed by a gurgling noise in the toilet bowl
  • century homes with large, older trees that have an extensive root network
  • a seriously clogged drain or sewage backup into the home
  • a burst or collapsed sewer pipe causing a soggy landscape around your home

As tree roots branch out in search of water sources, they gravitate towards water vapor escaping through pipe cracks and joints. They will continue to grow into the pipe openings causing larger cracks to form. Left undisturbed, tree roots in sewers or drain pipes will continue to grow – combining with oil, grease, soil, fats, and toilet paper. The result is clogged drains or a serious pipe blockage, which can ultimately cause structural pipe cracks or burst sewer pipes.

Tree Root Removal Services

Since your home’s sewer pipes are buried beneath your yard, it is crucial to work with tree root removal specialists that know how to clear tree roots from a sewer line. This type of service always requires a professional team that is experienced in tree root removal from sewer lines and unclogging tough drain issues. While there are multiple ways to remove tree roots from sewer lines, Jer-Z Drainz uses high-pressure water jetting to shear off roots that a sewer snake can’t reach, also referred to as hydro-jetting.

A tree root removal begins with an inspection of your sewer lines to determine the extent of root infiltration and the condition of your sewer or drain pipes. Hydro-jetting your sewer line involves producing a powerful stream of water that cleans out pipe clogs and opens drains. A high-pressure nozzle is connected to specialized machinery that pressurizes the water. The forced water shears off tree roots and pushes out debris build-up, grease, and shredded roots.
