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.
When Do I Need Rooter Services?
Luckily there are quite a few very clear signs that occur when rooter services are needed. If you can learn to recognize these, you’ll know when you need to call in the experts, enabling you to get the fast repair services you need to avoid further troubles.
- Slow-draining fixtures – The problem can impact drains and toilets alike, making them drain and flush at a far slower rate than usual. This is especially the case if the issue is affecting all of the drains in your home.
- Oddly verdant patches of grass – When distribution or main sewer pipes are damaged or clogged, a common result is a bleed of contaminated water into your landscape. The result can often be spotted by oddly rampant growth, especially of weeds and common flowers.
- Spongy or soaked lawn – Patches of soggy soil or standing water are very common to pipe problems, and are often accompanied by vermin and pest infiltration in the area as well (mosquitoes and flies in particular).
- Odors – The odor of sewer is distinct and readily noted. If you catch a whiff in your home or on your law outside, it’s time to call an expert asap.
