Several things can damage the insides of your Washington pipes. One of the hardest to detect is tree roots. They slowly work their way into your pipes but can become a very big nuisance once they are established in the pipe. The longer they are left in your pipes, the more damage they have the opportunity to create. N.W. Sewer & Drain has several things we can do to help should you have roots in your pipes. Here are a few important things to know.
Tree Roots Can Be Seen During a Sewer Camera Inspection
The best way to know if you have tree root issues in your Seattle pipes is to have your pipes inspected. For this, we come out with a camera and a CCTV to look around your pipes in real-time. We can remotely control the camera, so if we see any problems in your pipe, we can zoom in for a better view. If we are trying to figure out if tree roots are a problem, this is the most effective way to know for sure.
What are the Solutions for Tree Root Invasion?
You have a couple of different options when it comes to managing roots in your Seattle pipes. First, you can try DIY remedies, but we strongly advise against these. They are not only ineffective but can also leave your pipes damaged as a result. Second, you can have us cut out the roots. However, they tend to grow back very quickly. The final, and by far the most effective way of treating a root problem is to reline your pipe. This means putting a new lining in your existing pipe that bonds with the old pipe, keeping roots out. It is a thick lining that does not allow roots to come through, protecting your pipe from future root problems.
