Some Crown Hill neighborhoods are known for their beautiful foliage, which includes giant, lumbering trees that make a street picturesque and wholesome, especially in autumn. However, those gorgeous trees have massive roots with smaller offshoots, which could wreak havoc on your home’s sewer lines and main water line pipes without you knowing it. Roots are the number one destroyer and clogger of outdoor plumbing systems. The smallest root can worm its way into a minuscule crack in your home’s plumbing pipes, then grow as it’s fed with water and waste.
As those invasive roots expand in your plumbing system, they can push on all sides of the pipes, causing the cracks to become longer, wider, and deeper. Eventually, you have a major, more expensive problem on your hands. One that could require replacements of that one pipe or the entire plumbing system.
How Can You Prevent Roots from Taking Over Your Home’s Plumbing System?
Routine plumbing inspections are essential to the health and preventative care of your home’s plumbing system. We at A-List Plumbing are keen on preventing root infestations and clogged pipes, so call us when you need an annual inspection of both indoors and outdoor setups.
Most of our inspection procedures are noninvasive, and we offer in-home consultations before inspections to get a sense of the suspected issue with your home’s plumbing. When your property is covered in trees or just one large tree, you can be sure there’s a root system under the ground that could be detrimental to your plumbing pipes. That’s when you call us to make sure it’s not as big of an issue as you may imagine.
