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.
