Sewer Lines Causing Stoppage

Got Roots phoenix?

You just found out you have roots in your sewer line, now what?

Stoppages happen to lots of us, not a big deal most of the time but what can you expect if you find that your sewer line is actually backed up due to a broken sewer line or roots?  Roots can be a big problem for Phoenix homeowners because of our amazing desert landscaping.  Desert plants will go to incredible lengths to find water and your sewer line is a perfect target.  Once roots are in your sewer line your sewer line is broken and cannot be ignored.  Roots will continue to grow and infest your entire sewer line in the process filling the line to capacity leaving no room for anything else to flow through.

Roots Causing Sewer StoppageHere is a photo of a single section of roots pulled from a sewer line after it was excavated and the broken section was opened.  You can clearly see that a sewer line is no match for roots, nature wins.

The first step when you discover that your sewer line is broken is to have the sewer line inspected with a camera.  Once the line has been visually inspected from the inside we are able to electronically locate where the break is and how deep the break is.  A visual inspection of the sewer line will allow our technician to best inform you of what your options are, whether you should replace a section of pipe or if it is in your best interest to replace the entire sewer line.
