There are many reasons why your drains and pipes may be clogged, and a very common complaint is when tree roots grow through your sewer and water lines. Left alone, this unfortunate situation can lead to a whole mess of headaches that may negatively affect your property and even your health. This page is here to inform you about the issues that come with having tree roots damage your pipes.
The aforementioned problem usually develops when tree roots, attracted by the nutrient-rich water flowing through the pipes, start to invade your plumbing system. You can prevent this by consulting a plumber before planting any shrubs or trees. However, if you weren’t able to do that and roots start to intrude in your pipes, you can expect some rather unhappy effects starting to sprout around your plumbing. Here are just a few of the more notable dilemmas relating to roots in pipes:
Consulting with a plumbing expert and planning one’s garden around on the property’s utilities and sewer systems are the top ways to decrease the chances of having to deal with this issue in the future. But if you’re already experiencing it now, Wilco Relining can clear your pipes of tree root intrusions, no problem!
Here’s how we do it:
Using our CCTV cameras and scopes, we can easily determine if there really are tree roots clogging up the property’s pipework without having to dig a single hole. The camera will help the plumber determine the location of the blockage, as well as what type of damage the roots have actually caused.
Even loosening the roots from where they’ve gone through the pipes requires no digging. We’ll come in with a hydro-jet to blast through the pipes, obliterating the roots and other foreign objects causing obstructions within the plumbing.
Finally, because the pipework is likely to have some holes and cracks thanks to the intrusion of the roots, we’ll patch the pipes up with our state-of-the-art trenchless pipe relining technology. Again, no digging is necessary as we apply our non-corrosive reliners made of material that’s even 400% stronger than PVC.
If you ticked all the boxes on having a tree root intruding into your pipes, don’t worry – Wilco Relining has your back on this. With our leading edge trenchless relining technology, our experienced experts can handle all the dirty work starting from diagnosing the problem with a CCTV camera, clearing the tree infestations and other debris with a high-pressure stream of water, to relining the damaged pipework.
