Tree root incursion is one of the most common causes of sewer problems in New Jersey. They can cause recurring, otherwise unexplained sewer clogs; cracks in the pipes; burst sewer lines; and even sewer backflow into your home.

Because they’re completely underground, and a tree can send out roots to a surprisingly long distance, tree roots in the sewer lines can be hard for homeowners to detect. In many cases, you’ll need a professional to remove tree roots from your sewer line with sewer cleaning or sewer repair service.Sewer Backups from Tree Roots

Tree Roots In Sewer

How tree roots gets Into your sewer line?

main-sewer-line-replacement-njNew Jersey is a naturally forested area, full of many different species of trees. Most large trees send out sprawling root networks that can range surprisingly far across your property, and which are constantly expanding. As the tree grows, it sends out small new root shoots.

  • These roots are naturally drawn to the things trees need to survive: nutrients and water. Sewers are full of both of these things, which is why tree roots are so intrinsically attracted to them, and why tree root removal is such a common reason for sewer repair.

Although a fully intact pipe isn’t necessarily at risk, tree roots often enter the sewer lines through small hairline cracks and pinholes, which wouldn’t cause much trouble on their own. Corrosion, pressure, soil issues, and other factors can cause small openings into the sewer lines, where tree roots can grow. Once the roots enter the sewer lines, they can quickly cause surprisingly severe sewer clogs and pipe damage, and you’ll need a professional to remove tree roots from your sewer line.

Sewer Repair & Sewer Cleaning for Tree Root Removal

tree-roots-in-Sewers_pipeTree roots need to be removed as soon as possible from sewer lines.

Homeowners usually notice problems caused by root growth when drains begin backing up and gurgling throughout the house, which is a classic sign of a clogged or damaged sewer main.

At A1 Sewer & Drain, we can remove tree roots from sewer lines with both sewer repair and sewer cleaning techniques:

  • Hydro jetting. In many cases, this sewer cleaning technique, which uses streams of water at high pressures, can be used to remove tree roots from sewer lines.
  • The water pressure is sufficient to break apart even thick, tough roots into tiny pieces, clearing out the sewer pipe and sending the debris safely away downstream.
  • Pipe bursting and pipe lining. When severe damage has occurred from tree root growth, sections of sewer pipes can be severely cracked or broken.
  • Pipe bursting and pipe lining are trenchless sewer repair methods, with pipe bursting used for severe breakages, and pipe lining used to patch up cracked sections of pipe.
