Rooter Service

Are all the drains in your house suddenly backed up for no apparent reason? Even if you’re extremely careful about what you put down your drains, you could end up with a blockage from an unexpected source: tree roots! Trees can extend their roots for several yards, and they can sneak into your pipes as they seek out nutrients. Unfortunately for you, these roots can do serious damage and cause major blockages.

Video Camera Inspection for Tree Root Removal

To make the tree root removal process as smooth as possible, we start with a video camera inspection that will lead us directly to the site of the blockage. Once we find it, we’ll determine the best way to remove the clog and get your water flowing like normal.

How can you tell if you need rooting services?

Slow-draining fixtures – sluggish drains, slow-flushing toilets, and other drain problems throughout the house are clear signs that you have a root invasion in your sewer line. Since the problem is far down the line, plunging the toilet or trying to clear the drain with an auger won’t help either, and if they do the effect will likely be short-lived.

Patches of green in the backyard – when roots block distribution pipes of your septic tank, water may leak out and settle around it. This creates a hazard for humans and pets, but ideal growing conditions for grass and flowers, which will quickly absorb those nutrients and become noticeably greener and healthier than the surrounding vegetation.

Spongy or soaked lawn – if the main sewer line is blocked, water will likely overflow and seep into the ground. Eventually, the ground will become soft and muddy, even forming little pools of untreated water. This may be especially noticeable after a big rainstorm.

Odors – most of the time, odors from septic water are absorbed by porous soil. If you can smell them, this usually means the pipe is backed up and leaking.
