Are Roots Invading Your Sewer Line? Here's How to Address the Problem
The location of residential sewer lines makes them susceptible to tree root invasion. Since a sewer line is located outdoors beneath the ground, nearby tree roots can grow towards the pipe and break it. The roots block the sewer line and prevent wastewater from flowing freely from the indoor plumbing fixtures. The broken piping can also cause sewer leaks in your yard. Luckily, there are measures you can take to get rid of sewer roots and protect the piping from future invasion.
