What is Tree Root Invasion?
One of the leading causes of residential and commercial pipe problems is tree root invasion. Tree root invasion occurs when trees identify moisture coming from your pipes system. The moisture could be due to cracks, leaks or fractures in your pipes. When trees recognize the nutrients coming from your pipes, they will grow toward them and eventually into them causing major problems. Tree roots are about twice the size of their tree which means it is important to pay close attention to your pipe healthy if you live on a property with one or more trees.
Signs Roots Have Invaded Your Southern CA Pipes
Our team at The Drain Doctor Covina understands that it can be hard to tell when trees have actually invaded your pipes. However, there are various signs you can look for to tell something is wrong within your sewer or drain system including, but not limited to:
- Slow flushing drains
- Sewer backup or overflow
· Low water pressure
· Foul odors coming from your pipes
· Excess areas of water around your property
If you are experiencing any of these issues, it is time to call the professionals to inspect your pipes for tree roots. Drain inspection is a quick process that can be performed on the interior or exterior of your home. It involves a single, high-resolution camera being moved through your drain to reveal the exact location of tree roots within your pipe in addition to the cause of the invasion. When we have gathered all the necessary information, our team can provide you with the proper pipe solution.
Solutions to Tree Root Invasion
Since tree roots invade your pipes through cracks, leaks, and fractures, they will need to be properly repaired. Our team specialized in trenchless cleaning and repair techniques you will be happy with. Before we can properly repair your pipes, the tree roots need to be removed from your system. This can be done through hydro jetting. Hydro jetting is an environmentally-friendly drain cleaning service that uses exclusively clean water to remove all tree roots. The process involves a hose with a multi-directional nozzle being inserted into your pipe. When properly in place, we will release high-pressure water into your drain to break apart and flush the roots out of your system.
After your pipes are completely clean and free of the tree roots, we will use trenchless pipe lining to rehabilitate your pipes. Pipe lining involves a resin-saturated felt liner being pushed through the pipe that needs repair. As the liner is moved through your pipeline, it coats the walls sealing all damaged areas. The linter is left in place to harden, and when complete, it will be removed revealing a brand-new pipe inside of your existing one.
