We Expertly Repair Sewer System Backups

Tree Root Intrusion Solutions

One of the most common causes of sewer system backups is tree root intrusions. Condensation on leaking pipes attracts tree roots that are in search of nourishment. These tree roots can easily slip in through tiny separations in pipe sections to infiltrate your sewage system. The tree roots begin branching out and growing throughout that area, making the hole bigger and eventually bursting your pipes.

We have extensive training and use the latest tools and technology to repair sewer system backups caused by tree root intrusions. We can also assist with a sewer backup prevention system that will make it less likely that you ever experience a residential sewer system backup. Here’s a look at our tree root intrusion solutions:

  • Rooter Work & Drain Cleaning – We can punch through the clog caused by the tree root and get your sewer functioning again. We then check the extent of the tree root problem and can recommend more permanent solutions.
  • Hydrojetting – We offer our hydro-jetting service as a long-term solution for sewer system backups. Our technician will clean your sewer pipes using highly pressurized water jets that scour the line and eliminate grease buildup, dirt, rocks, tree roots, and other debris. This debris is safely pushed out into your city’s sewer system.
  • Pipe Lining – We offer a permanent solution to sewer system backup where we line your entire sewer pipe with a specialized sleeve that seals it, eliminating the water leakage that attracts tree roots. This prevents digging up your yard or demolishing walls or other structures on your property to gain access to your pipes.
  • Pipe Bursting – Pipe bursting is another permanent solution to resolve sewer system backups. We use precise hydraulics to break apart your old sewer pipe and simultaneously install a new, seamless pipe.
  • Maintenance – In addition to repairing sewer system backups, we also offer precise, effective sewer backup prevention systems, including routine, regular maintenance and drain cleaning to prevent clogs, root intrusion, and backups.

Problems with your septic system can cause wide-ranging problems throughout your entire home.

We prefer to handle them at the "slow drain" stage when customers notice their drains moving slowly. This helps prevent system-wide problems like sewer backups and multiple clogged drains.

Warning Signs of a Septic System Backup

If you notice any of the following issues on your property, call us for emergency plumbing services immediately to repair your sewer system backup:

  • You can see sewage backup, or smelly black liquid, in your toilets and drains.
  • Your toilet is flushing and draining slowly.
  • One or more drains in the house are running slowly or not draining.
  • Wastewater is seeping from the ground near your septic system and may or may not have an odor.
  • There is a lot of green grass over the septic system, even during dry, hot weather.
  • There are bacteria in your well. The liquid from your septic system could contaminate your drinking water well through the ground.
  • Algae or weeds grow in a pond near your house, which could be caused by the septic system waste discharging into the surface water.
  • There are bad odors around the house due to a poorly vented or failing septic system.
