Sewer Pipe Root Removal 101 - Treatments for Tree Root Removal in Sewer Pipes & Septic Systems

Sewer pipes are designed carry the wastewater and sewage away from homes and businesses for final treatment.    However, blockages that occur in pipes can cause backups into homes and businesses or create overflows of raw sewage on residential property, businesses or streets.  These backups or overflows can pose significant risk to the property and health of citizens.

Tree root intrusion in sewer pipes may be the single most destructive element facing a homeowners’ sewer or wastewater collection system.  Each homeowner or commercial establishment is generally responsible for the maintenance of their sewer lines or sewer laterals from the house to the street. 

Tree roots grow in sewer pipes because they like it there.  Sewer pipes contain three essential elements for tree root growth: water, organic nutrients and oxygen. The trees root system is able detect and find these essential elements and creep toward your sewer pipes, septic tank, or septic system leach field.
