Homeowners are often surprised they need roots in sewer lines removed. A common occurrence, especially in mature neighborhoods, is roots from a tree or bush several yards or even several houses away can damage sewer lines – even causing some roots in drain. Having roots in sewer pipes is called root intrusion, and can create major blockage in your line.
Roots in sewer lines begin when roots are drawn to unbroken pipes because of condensation around the sewer pipes. The roots will grow alongside and around the pipe to absorb the moisture, and this is the start of tree roots in sewer lines. Trees and shrubs seek water to grow, and your sewer lines provide the perfect, protected environment.
ROOTS IN SEWER LINES ALERT:
Watch your drains! If water is not draining in a swirling, cyclonic action, it means the rate of draining is being slowed by something. Now is a good time to remove roots in sewer lines.

ROOTS IN SEWER LINE FACTOID:
Don’t blame the roots! There is a misconception that roots are the problem. However, the problem is actually the pipe because the roots cannot get in the pipe unless there is a crack or bad joint. Age makes pipes more susceptible to cracks, breaks and deformations. Root intrusion clues include sudden back-ups or flooding of the lowest plumbing fixture in the house. Fill a bathtub or shower and look for this warning sign as it drains.
