What to Do When Tree Roots Invade Your Sewer Line

Having a tree in your front yard or backyard can be great. Maybe you can use it to hang a tire swing from for your children or perhaps it is the ideal spot to sit in the shade on a warm day. Chances are the tree is a good help at keeping your home cool too. But what if that same tree you’ve come to love is causing issues for your plumbing in Lake Havasu City, AZ?

Tress, unfortunately, can be the core cause of a serious drain and sewer issue. Specifically, that tree can start to mess with your sewer line and back up the drains in your house. If you need help with your sewer line, you can turn to us.

What Tree Roots Can Do To Your Plumbing

Did you know that tree roots just happen to love wastewater? We know it sounds a little gross but it is true. Wastewater can be pretty nutrient-rich so if there is a small pinhole leak in the sewer line in your plumbing it can actually attract tree roots to that pipe.

If and when the tree roots reach the pipe they can get into it insert to grow and expand thanks to all those nutrients. Tree root invasion into a sewer line starts small and rapidly gets to be problematic as it can cause problems with drainage and end up destroying your sewer pipeline.

Signs Of a Problem With Your Sewer Line

There will of course be some signs to indicate that you have a problem within your sewer line. See if you notice any of these warning indicators:

  • Overly green grass in the yard
  • Puddles in the yard area
  • Multiple backed-up drains in your home
  • Drains that are slow to empty
  • Pungent, bad odors around the home
