Our Sewer Line Tree Root Intrusion Solutions

Our experts are highly experienced in providing long-term solutions for residential sewer systems damaged by tree root intrusion. Tree roots can get into the tiny holes and cracks in your sewer line pipes over time, eventually damaging or bursting them. Common signs of tree root intrusion include bathtubs backing up, gurgling or bubbling toilets, or a lack of water in your toilet bowl. We offer several solutions for residential tree root intrusion, including:

  • Hydro Jetting – Our team uses high-pressure blasts of water to eliminate any sign of tree roots, build-up, or debris from your sewer line.
  • Pipelining – We can effectively resolve your sewer line damage and eliminate leaks once without digging trenches in your yard with our pipelining technique.
  • Rooter Work & Drain Cleaning – Our team can repair your sewer line by punching through the tree roots and thoroughly inspecting the extent of the damage to recommend permanent solutions for repair.
  • Pipe Bursting – Using hydraulics to break apart your current piping and install new, seamless piping in its place, pipe bursting is an effective solution for residential sewer line damage.
  • Maintenance – Performing routine maintenance on your residential plumbing system is one of the most effective ways to prevent sewer line damage. When you schedule preventative maintenance services with Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Galveston & Brazoria Counties, we’ll thoroughly inspect and clean your drains to ensure they’re kept clear of unwanted debris.
