Tree Roots In your Sewer Line or Storm Drain
If you have a tree root problem in your sewer line we understand this can be a frustrating situation. Roots will cause constant back ups and can crack or collapse cast iron pipes. If you have clay pipes then the roots may be coming from the joints. If you snake a cast iron pipe with roots you will most likely cause more damage to the pipe with the snake because of the mechanism of the cable. You may be able to chop off the roots but you will damage the pipe further. That can be true even for clay pipes. The other option you have is jetting. This is a better option as long as the plumber is using low pressure and gently removes the roots. With this option you will extend your time to actually repair the pipe which is the permanent solution. For clay pipes though hydro jetting is your own solution.
