FACTS about Root Intrusion

Do I need a new sewer due to tree roots?

Tree roots are one of the main reasons for sewer back-ups.  Roots are attracted to water vapor that escapes through loose joints in sewer pipes.  Once inside, roots will continue to grow and fill the pipe to create a root mass.  The root mass can become matted with grease, paper and other solid matter, which will eventually cause a clogged sewer.

In most cases you do not need a new sewer.  The commonly used tools, to remove tree roots, are augers and saws that pull the roots out of the pipe.  Once the tree roots are removed, preventive maintenance methods will be needed to prevent future back-ups.
