HOW DO I REMOVE TREE ROOTS IN MY DRAIN AND SEWER PIPE?
Tree roots are the biggest threats to pipelines. And, if you are consistently noticing that water in your sinks or bathtubs is draining very slowly, then there’s a possibility that the sewer lines of your house have been clogged or invaded by some tree roots. A minor root invasion into a sewer line can be a nuisance, but if it is not checked then it can further aggravate costing you a few thousands.
Even when you have the slightest doubt of a root invasion, call a professional plumber or a sewer line expert to inspect the same. A professional plumber has all the necessary tools that are required to check for root invasion. He can diagnose the cause by inserting a special camera through the sewer lines at the sight of blockage. A camera will help him analysing how big the root invasion is and how much damage it has done to the pipe.
After the inspection is done, the root can be treated with chemicals. A mechanical routing device can also be used to chop away the roots and unclog the sewer line. However, if the pipe is damaged to a greater extent, then it will need to be replaced. So, it is always better to get an inspection done at the initial stage.
