Removal of tree roots in sewer lines

 

Drain DigsToronto is a city of many trees, which can pose problems with your drains, especially during early spring. It’s at this time of the year that we at Hoerner Heating and Plumbing receive many calls about blocked drains. The problem is that new root growth which infiltrates drains and sewer lines, can cause havoc on the draining system. When that happens, drain digs are necessary to solve the issue. 

 

In some cases, tree roots in drains cause blockages within the home, but in most cases, it causes problems between the city line coming into your property from the street and your home. Your drain dig specialists from Hoerner will use a specialised camera to locate and assess the problem. This alleviates unnecessary digging, potentially in the wrong place. 

 

Damage-Free Drain Digs

 

Once the blockage has been located (usually due to Tree Roots in Drains), we will send down our equipment from the nearest clean out, using a drain snake to clear it out and use hydro jetting, rodding, or chemical applications to clear out the problem. Typically, we apply u-cutter heads or two-inch spear heads on the drain snake. This will cut through roots in drains. We will then plunge the system using retrieval heads. 

 

After the required treatment, we will perform another drain video inspection to ensure that we have removed as much of the tree root infiltration as possible. As roots in drains continue to grow, they continue to exert pressure and expand the crack in the joint, causing major leaks or breaks. Even worse, it may result in total blockage of the pipe, requiring replacement of the pipes. If the cracks formed by the tree roots have caused your clay pipes to collapse, you will need a new pipe installed. We can do this without digging up your yard, too. We recommend replacement of clay pipes with plastic (pvc) piping to prevent infiltration of roots.

 

Drain snaking is a good way to clear up drains without the traditional drain digs that cause damage to your landscape or hardscape. 

 

We will also recommend options to help deter root growth. Replacing your clay pipes with PVC is one such option.
