Root Damage


Root damage is such an insidious plumbing problem partly because it happens out-of-sight, underground and mysteriously. Tree roots will seek out a source for water and life for trees, often finding a weak spot on the exterior of a buried sewer line or high-pressure water line to your home. Tree roots will eventually compromise a thin spot, crack, fissure or pinhole in a pipe, entering the pipe, expanding the opening and clogging up the sewer line or water line. Root damage can be extensive to the pipe, possibly requiring replacement of sections of the buried piping. Meanwhile, root damage will cause frustrating clogs in the pipe and jeopardize the safety, security and cleanliness of your home with the prospect of water and sewage damage inside.
