How to Get Rid of Those Pesky Sewer Line Roots Once and for All

Is your sewer line clogged with roots? Do you find yourself constantly dealing with backups and blockages due to pesky tree roots infiltrating your pipes? If so, then you are not alone! This is a common problem that plagues homeowners everywhere.

Fortunately, there is a solution. You can finally put a stop to roots invading your sewer lines! Keep reading to discover how.

Step One: Identify the Problem

The first step is to identify what type of roots are causing the problem and where they are located.
If the roots are growing through cracks in your pipes, then they must be cut back and removed before any kind of treatment can begin.
However, if the roots are coming from outside sources, such as trees or shrubs that have grown too close to the sewer line then these plants must be pruned or removed entirely before any other actions can take place.

Step Two: Choose Your Solution

There are several different solutions available for killing root intrusions in your sewer line. Depending on your situation and budget, some solutions may work better than others.

Chemical treatments are one option that involves using harsh chemicals, such as bleach or potassium hydroxide to kill off any existing roots and discourage new ones from forming.

Mechanical treatments like hydro jetting or roto-rooting also work well for removing hardened tree roots from within the pipe walls without damaging them

Finally, professional plumbers can use special tools such as an auger or drain snake to physically remove any roots that have become lodged inside the pipe walls without damaging them further.

Step Three: Follow Through with Treatment

Once you’ve identified the problem and chosen a solution, it’s important to follow through with the treatment plan to ensure that all root intrusions have been killed off completely.

Depending on which solution you choose, this could involve anything from regularly applying chemical treatments every few weeks to having a professional come out every few months to inspect the pipes and make sure everything is still working properly.

Regardless of which solution you choose, you must stick with it until all root intrusions have been eliminated!

Killing root intrusion in your  sewer line doesn’t have to be difficult if you know what steps need to be taken. By following these three simple steps—identifying the problem; choosing a solution; and following through with treatment—you can rest assured knowing that you won’t have any more problems with pesky tree roots invading your home’s plumbing system ever again!
