Tree Roots In Sewer Line
The leading cause of sewer line blockages is tree roots. Tree roots can grow over time and get into a sewer line. Roots from trees that grow near or over a sewer pipe can cause the pipe to crack and even break, which can lead to sewage backup in homes and businesses. In order to avoid this problem, it is important for property owners to keep an eye on their trees. They should have their trees trimmed back so that the roots do not grow over the sewer line.
Sewer Line Cleaning
I you are having occasional clogs, conventional cleaning methods such as cabling (drain snaking) and augering (using rotating blades on a cable) can provide an adequate solution, however, if you have root intrusions in your sewer line applying copper sulfate from a port or toilet often kills the roots and creates an external kill zone. Foaming products helps ensure that the copper sulfate reaches the surface of the pipe. However, this type of chemical process is not always 100% effective. I Love Sewers Rooter and Plumbing will try all cost-effective methods to make sure you have a perfectly functioning sewer line.
