TREE ROOTS Services
A very common but serious issue plumbers around Sydney face is tree roots.
Tree roots are constantly searching for water and stretch much farther than you might think, further than the branches above ground. They invade pipe work and plumbing systems, continuing to grow in the water they find and wreck havoc on your plumbing.
Under the pressure of the growing roots, pipes begin to crack and break down, or are so full of roots that no water flows through.
HOW DO I KNOW IF THERE ARE TREE ROOTS IN MY PIPES & HOW DO WE FIX IT!
Signs there may be a blockage in your drain or sewer line include symptoms such as water backing up at the shower or toilet, slow draining sinks/baths, gurgling sounds and smells coming from drains.
We use our CCTV camera & locator to distinguish where the roots have penetrated your pipe work and exactly how extensive the damage is and its exact location in the pipe.
We use powerful jet blast equipment. The high pressured water from the jet can cut through tree roots that have matted themselves to the width of the pipe, stopping any water from flowing through. We also have a robotic cutter that can break up the roots if the jet isn’t enough.
If once the roots have been cleared and our equipment shows that the pipe is also damaged by the roots such as cracks or holes, we can use our innovative pipe repair technologies to repair the damaged lengths of the pipe without having to dig up your garden and surrounds. Find out how it works HERE.
