Sewer Line Tree Root Intrusion Solutions

One of the biggest threats to the sewer lines in your home’s plumbing system is tree roots underground in your yard. If your pipes have tiny holes, cracks, or separations, tree roots can infiltrate them searching for nourishment. Eventually, they can completely take over the insides of your pipes, clogging and bursting them. Our team of plumbing professionals can solve any sewer line problems related to tree roots. Some common warning signs that you have tree roots in your pipes include backups in your bathtubs or toilets, gurgling noises from toilets, bathtubs not draining correctly, or a lack of water in your toilet bowls. Mr. Rooter® Plumbing of Olympia offers the following solutions for tree root infiltration in your sewer line:

  • Hydro Jetting – This process involves sending a high-powered blast of water through your pipes to clear them of any dirt, debris, tree roots, and grease build-up.
  • Pipelining – Our team provides a permanent solution for water leakage by lining and sealing sewer pipes using a sleeve. This highly effective solution avoids trenching, with no need to demolish walls or other structures on your property.
  • Maintenance – Performing preventative maintenance and taking care of your pipes is a great way to save money and hassle over time. We offer regular plumbing system inspections and drain cleaning services to help you prevent grease build-up and other debris in your pipes. Performing routine sewer line maintenance can also help prevent tree roots from wreaking havoc on your pipes.
  • Rooter Work & Drain Cleaning – Our expert plumbers punch through tree roots to clear out your sewer line and restore its functionality. Then we'll inspect the extent of the problem and recommend permanent, cost-effective solutions.
  • Pipe Bursting – This process involves using hydraulics to break apart your current piping underground, whether your home has PVC, clay, or cast iron sewer pipes. A new seamless pipe is installed in its place.

Warning Signs of Septic System Backup
