How Tree Root Removal Works 

The tree root removal process typically involves a two-pronged approach: identifying the exact location and extent of the blockage, followed by the removal of the roots and accumulated debris. The first step often involves utilizing a sewer line camera inspection. 

This specialized camera transmits a live video feed from within the pipe, allowing a plumber to pinpoint the precise location of the root incursion. This detailed visual information is crucial for determining the most appropriate root removal technique.

Once the camera has identified the problem area, the plumber can proceed with the root removal itself. To remove the intrusion, a process known as hydro jetting is a highly effective solution. Hydro jetting utilizes a high-pressure water jet streamed through a specialized nozzle. 

This forceful stream effectively breaks up and dislodges the tree roots, clearing the blockage and restoring proper drainage flow. The pressurized water also serves to scour the pipes, removing any accumulated dirt and debris left behind by the roots. This comprehensive cleaning helps prevent future blockages and promotes a healthy sewer system.

Signs You’re Dealing with Tree Root Intrusion

If left unchecked, root intrusion can lead to costly repairs and extensive damage. Some of the common signs to watch out for include:

  • Unpleasant smells. Sewage odors coming from your drains can be a sign that roots have damaged the pipes and are allowing sewage to leak out.
  • Toilet backups. Sewage backups are a serious issue and can indicate a major blockage in your sewer line. Roots are a common culprit of sewer line clogs.
  • Soggy areas in your yard. If you notice persistently damp patches in your yard, it could be a sign that roots have caused a leak in your sewer line. The leaking wastewater will saturate the soil and create lush, green spots.
  • Slow-moving drains. This is often the first sign of root intrusion. Roots can gradually block the pipes, causing water to drain slowly from your sinks, tubs, and showers.
  • Sinkhole formation. In extreme cases, root intrusion can cause the pipes to collapse, leading to the formation of sinkholes in your yard.
  • Bubbling noises. If you notice gurgling or bubbling sounds coming from your drains, you can consider that a sign that roots are blocking the pipes and preventing water from flowing freely.

If you suspect that you have root intrusion in your pipes, it's important to call a qualified plumber right away. Early detection and treatment can help prevent further damage and costly repairs.
