Vancouver trees are at the root of sewer issues
The trees in Vancouver, WA, are one its best features - and provide great scenery throughout the Pacific Northwest! However, the tree roots also can cause major damage by intruding the connections along the sewer pipe. This often leads to a clogged line, but can potentially result in a broken sewer.
Additional problems that occur in sewer pipes:
- Belly or low area – When there’s an area of the sewer line that is sitting lower then the rest of the line. Typically, this is the result of soil erosion, foundation settlement, or poor installation and soil compaction.
- Corrosion & Deterioration – After the sewer has been exposed to water over long periods of time, it will begin to corrode and deteriorate.
- Cracking – Every sewer line is going to have its fair share of usage in a lifespan. Over time, that continual use of the sewer will lead to cracking.
