One of the most common causes of sewer backups is root intrusion. What we consider wastewater, plants see as a source of food, minerals and water. While roots are not believed to actually penetrate a sound pipeline, they do exploit existing material weaknesses, cracks, open joints and connections to the point of pipe failure. Soft blockages are also attracted to these imperfections in the pipe and will collect together and eventually cause sewer backups as well.
“Rotoring” these sewer lines can actually promote growth in some cases since it is basically pruning the roots. We provide a long-term solution to prevent these unexpected and inconvenient sewer backups by replacing the section of compromised pipe either by open-cut or trenchless replacement techniques.
Remember, it is not normal to need your sewer lines rotored several times a year. This is just a short-term solution and doesn’t address the problem.
