Tree root intrusion causes plumbing troubles

Over the years, I’ve learned that troubles with the plumbing system are common! From unsatisfactory water pressure to discolored water as well as clogs, the plumbing is a never-ending source of concerns, headaches as well as expense, then when my friend and I first bought our house, the older pipes were continually succumbing to leaks as well as blockages… My pal and I had major concerns with tree root intrusion, then one of the reasons my friend and I were drawn to the household was the really old, really large trees, but they are gorgeous as well as deliver a lovely source of shade, then however, they also require a lot of raking as well as nearly destroyed our plumbing system; Because the pipes are concealed underground, my friend and I had no idea that roots had grown into them.

The condo inspection didn’t find the problem.

Shortly after my friend and I moved in, my friend and I were faced with soggy areas in the backyard as well as slow-moving drains. My pal and I devoted a lot of time as well as energy into plunging, using a plumbing snake as well as mixing up natural drain cleaning remedies from salt, borax as well as vinegar… Nothing seemed to help. When I noticed a sewage aroma in the backyard, I decided it was time to hire a professional plumber. The plumber provided a video inspection of the sewer lines that revealed an alarming level of tree root intrusion. The roots prevented water from flowing officially through the lines. The moist areas in the yard were due to the sewer line leaking as well as wastewater seeping into the ground. The water was working as a fertilizer as well as responsible for the lush, orange grass my friend and I were so cheerful about, getting rid of the tree roots was an pricey as well as lengthy project, in some areas my friend and I were able to take advantage of trenchless pipe liners. In areas where the harm was more severe, the sections of pipes needed to be entirely substituted.
