The easiest way to tell if you have issues with tree roots in your Charlotte, NC, drain pipes is if you have them inspected. When you schedule services with a plumbing professional at Mr. Rooter of Charlotte, they can come out with a sewer camera and thoroughly inspect the pipe. Through pipe inspection, we will be able to determine visually if your issues come from tree roots or if there is another reason your drain pipes are having trouble.
Tree roots grow slowly, so if you have noticed a progressive decline in your drain function for a significant period of time, chances are, roots are to blame. Plus, if you happen to have a tree that has experienced significant growth over the last year or so, it is likely that the tree found a new source of food and water. Once the roots were in the pipe, tree growth became inevitable. Now, your healthy tree is the result of the roots making their way into the pipes on your property.
Restore Tree Root Invasion with Trusted Drain Cleaning
There are two options that work very well at removing tree roots from your Charlotte, NC sewer and water pipes. The first is an auger. We use metal augers in your drain pipes to cut up the roots of the trees, which allows the tiny pieces to go down into the sewer. This process is a little slow but is safe under most circumstances.
The other option, which is safe under nearly all circumstances, is hydrojetting. This is when we use water to cut the tree roots instead of the auger. The pressurized water is controlled by our experienced plumbing technicians and directed at the roots until they break up. From there, the water flushes the pieces down into the sewer.
The only problem with these methods is that they cannot guarantee that you will not have the issue recur again in the future. For that, we’d need to repair your sewer line.
