How to Protect Your Plumbing From Tree Roots

If you’re wondering how to protect your plumbing from tree roots, there are several steps you can take. One way to avoid tree root problems in your plumbing is to always use a rubber stopper in any open or drain space near where your pipes are located. But it’s not an ideal solution because it does not prevent other tree root from getting into the plumbing system. In fact, it may even cause even more harm because other chemicals and materials used for the seal might not penetrate the pipe further.

Another solution to the question of how to protect your plumbing from tree roots is to have your plumbing inspected at least twice a year. Tree roots are known to enter plumbing lines that are not sealed properly. This allows the roots to soak through and get into your pipes, which can result in a clog. Tree roots are also known to grow at greater rates in areas with poor drainage.

Your best option to deal with drain clogs caused by tree roots is to call a professional plumber who deals with drain cleaning. Speak to us about what kind of plumbing you have (e.g. PVC, drain cleaner, etc.) and we will perform an inspection and determine how to protect your plumbing from tree roots.
