Tree roots are a common cause of sewer line blockages. Roots from nearby trees and vegetation can infiltrate sewer pipes through cracks or joints, leading to blockages and potential damage.Sewer cleaners equipped with high pressure water jets and cutting attachments or rotating nozzles that can effectively cut through tree roots, clearing the blockages and restoring proper flow in the pipes.
Root cutting is often part of regular maintenance programs for sewer systems in areas prone to root intrusion. This process helps maintain proper sewer system functionality, prevents backups and overflows, and prolongs the lifespan of the sewer infrastructure. Additionally, root cutting reduces the need for costly and disruptive sewer repairs caused by root intrusion.
