If you’ve been finding green spots on your outer walls and sinkholes in the yard, then you’ve probably got a tree root invasion. Often, these roots are tiny little growths that seek out the water flowing in underground pipelines. Once a little root invades your pipe, it keeps growing until extensive damage occurs.
Inspecting a Tree Root Invasion
A great way to find the point of invasion in your pipes is to use a video pipe inspection method. A special camera called an endoscope is used for this procedure. This camera allows the plumber to confirm the problem and find its exact location.
Clearing the Roots From Your Pipeline
Depending on the extent of growth and scope of invasion, the plumber will determine a way to clear the roots. This involves either cutting the roots with a mechanical auger or disintegrating them using high-pressure hydro-jetting.
Fixing the Damage
Some damage is easy to repair without using any invasive methods. But sometimes, the root may have broken the pipe beyond repair. Once the plumber has cleared away the debris, they will see the damage and decide upon the appropriate repair method. These days, trenchless replacement is the go-to option as it is less invasive than the traditional pipe replacement method. The process involves a new pipe being moved into the old one where it breaks the old pipes and takes its place.
