We love nature and trees, they just don't belong in your homes drainage system
Most people dream of living on a tree lined street in a well-developed neighbourhood, but underneath that canopy, trouble lurks: the havoc that tree roots can wreak on their underground sanitary drain line. Tree roots can infiltrate the drain line, making it completely impenetrable for sewage and water to pass through into the City sewer system. This can cause major issues for your plumbing system – a problem that nobody wants, but one that won’t fix itself. As much as no one ever wants this to happen to them, rest assured, with DrainWorks, you’ve come to the right place.
Getting To The Root Of The Problem: One of the methods used to identify tree roots in drains is a drain camera inspection. A qualified DrainWorks technician will run a camera down into the drainage/sewer pipes. After confirming that tree roots are the issue, there are several courses of action that DrainWorks can assist with to remedy the problem. In every case, your DrainWorks technician will assess your particular needs, confirm that roots are the issue, and then recommend a course of action based on their years of experience and plumbing knowledge, and what suits you best as the homeowner.
Your sewer/drain pipes provide ideal conditions for roots to grow into them; tree roots thrive in the moist conditions that sewer pipes provide. After all, they’re a perfect source of water, nutrients and oxygen that the tree needs to grow. If there is even a small crack in a pipe, or a loose joint, the opening can emit water vapor caused by the warmer water moving through the pipes. The tree’s roots will be drawn towards that warmer water vapor and grow into that space. Once the roots are inside the pipe, they can become very problematic – growing into hair-like extensions which are perfectly suited to entangle anything going down your drain pipes. It’s only then when most people would start to notice that something wrong is going on with their plumbing system, and by that time sewage and bacteria could be permeating your basement.
