You try to be vigilant and make sure you don’t put anything down the drain that would jam your pipes. You don’t put anything down the toilet besides toilet paper; you don’t put pasta, stringy vegetables, or oils down the kitchen sink; and you make sure to have filters on all your drains. But have you done absolutely everything in order to avoid an expensive sewer line repair?
Go outside because you may be overlooking the most damaging problem of all: tree roots.
Trees desire nutrients and their roots are how they get it, so the end of the tree root is constantly “searching for” and “reaching for” a source of moisture and nutrients and they are enticed by a leaking sewer line in need of repair.
Most of time, tree roots will leave healthy, intact sewer lines alone. They usually only occupy leaking, cracked, or damaged lines buried within the top 24 inches of the soil. When this takes place the initial damage not only becomes worse, the tree roots can actually clog the sewer system and decrease the water flow, causing overflows and possibly flooding your home or building.
So what do you do? Call a sewer line repair company in Daytona Beach.
A sewer line repair will typically be easier (and less expensive) than a completely broken pipe, so if you suspect an issue with your sewer line, especially if you feel that tree roots are growing into the pipe, call All American Air Service Experts right away.
Sewer line repair experts at All American Air will use a sewer inspection camera to confirm whether or not the pipe has a tree root worry. Once the problem has been confirmed, our sewer line repair professional will discuss all of your options with you and help you decide the best plan, whether that’s a trenchless sewer line replacement or just getting rid of the tree roots.
Note, faster growing trees, such as ash, silver maples, or tuliptree, may cause more problems because they grow more quickly. Slower growing trees are a better alternative, but they still need to be removed and another tree replanted every seven to ten years to avoid their roots from damaging the sewer lines. Also, remember to plant trees a good distance from your sewer lines, that way you can help avoid damage and avoid those pesky (and often expensive) sewer line repairs. If you’re not sure where your sewer lines are, ask All American Air to flag the path of the sewer pipes.
So if you think your tree roots have entered your sewer line or you have any plumbing problems at all, call All American Air Service Experts in Daytona Beach and we are happy to come to your home and see if you need a sewer line repair or do a full plumbing maintenance to make sure your pipes are good to go.
