How Do Tree Roots Invade Your Pipes?

Since tree roots invade the plumbing system beneath your lawn, the problem can be hard to detect right away. It’s important to understand the warning signs of a tree root problems and address the issue right away. If left untreated, invasive tree roots will continue to wreak havoc on your pipes and create further complications for your entire system. The roots will continue to grow into the pipes, causing the surrounding soil to shift. It’s possible the roots could cause the pipe to completely fail.

Mature trees in your yard pose a threat to the plumbing beneath your property. Invading tree roots often cause a spike in your monthly water bill, cause water pressure to decrease, and cause your drains to release sewage and water slowly.

The most effective way to determine if roots are threatening your Indianapolis pipes is to have a yearly sewer camera inspection performed. The SLB Pipe Solutions team can perform a camera inspection in a matter of minutes. The waterproof camera used during the process is attached to a malleable cable. Our technicians guide the cable through your pipes, revealing buildup, debris, and tree roots.

Signs of Tree Root Invasion

While planning an annual sewer camera inspection is the most definitive way to determine if roots are affecting your plumbing, there are signs you should watch for in-between inspections. Pooling water or sewage in your lawn could be caused by pipes broken due to invasive roots. You may also notice sinkholes in the yard or that one portion of the lawn is growing much more rapidly than the rest.

Inside your home, tree root invasion may be the cause of gurgling toilets, low water pressure, or sewage smells seeping from your drains. While it’s not always possible to prevent tree roots from growing into your plumbing system, it’s certainly possible to catch the problem early and make changes before the need for an emergency plumber.
