Cast Iron Pipe full of roots

Here is a cast iron pipe we removed from a house that was so full of roots it actually broke into sections and caused water to pool under the concrete of the house.

Tree Roots Follow The Water

The best prevention strategy for root problems in your sewer system is to keep trees away from your sewer lines in the first place.

Avoid planting trees or shrubs that have extensive root systems close to your sewer lines and water mains whenever possible. These root systems will gravitate towards these lines and eventually cause problems.

What Kind of Damage Can Tree Roots Cause to Pipes?

Tree roots are a large source of damage to sewer pipes and the damage they inflict can be serious. If you are experiencing slow running drains, frequent clogs or gurgling toilets, a camera inspection of the sewer system is the definitive measure to verify if tree roots are to blame.

How To Diagnose & Repair Root Problems

On this particular job, we found the cast iron pipe during a weeping tile camera inspection. 

The homeowners had water coming up all around the basement walls.

The repair required excavation outside the house where the weeping tile comes into the house. We removed the broke cast sections and replaced it with new PVC pipe.

Had a sink backup that was causing us major grief. CSL was able to come on very short notice and had the problem resolved in no time. Very professional and would not hesitate to use them again.

We called CSL based on a recommendation from a construction / renovator that we trust. Chris came out right on time to inspect our system and gave a thorough inspection. Rather than try to drum up business, he gave an honest assessment of options that ultimately resulted in us not proceeding. Truly appreciate his integrity. Would highly recommend his services.

Excellent pricing, honest, and responsive. My basement floor drained backed up with sewage. I had to call into work last second and start the hunt. My mother and I had called numerous places, with a range of quotes from 450$ to 1230$ !! Finally I found this fine, independently operated company, and was given a flat rate quote. The gentleman showed up the same day and got it done in less than hour, and no joke - flat fee with tax. CSL saved my butt. Great business, takes pride in entrepreneurship, honest and straightforward, and reasonably priced!

I've hired CSL a couple times for different properties and all I know is that when you hand Chris a problem, it's like handing a bone to a pit bull -he won't let go of it until he's done with it. Definitely recommend CSL Sewer Cleaner -totally reliable service and has helped us out so much. Thank you!
