What is Tree Root Invasion?

Residential Tree Root Invasion in California

Our team at Roto Rooter Venture specializes in clearing your pipes of any and all clogs and blockages. The most common type of pipe problem is caused by tree root invasion. Tree root invasion is when tree roots intrude your pipe system. These intrusions can cause serious blockages and damage to your system if not fixed by an industry professional.

Causes of Tree Root Invasion in Southern California

Your pipelines are a constant source of water and nutrients for plants. Cracks and holes that form in your lines will release moisture that attracts these tree roots to your system. Once roots begin growing inside these cracks, it will cause them to expand and impact the functionality of your lines.

Symptoms you have an intrusion

Catching an intrusion right when it happens will save you money and time in repair cost. Because they are underground, it can be difficult to diagnose if you have a problem unless you know what to look out for. Common warning signs of an intrusion include:

    • Recurring clogs and backups
    • Foul odor
    • Slow draining water
    • Decrease in water pressure
    • Gurgling sounds

Hydro jetting is one of our most popular methods for cleaning pipelines and eliminating any stubborn clogs. This tool uses pressurized water to blast through tree roots and restore your pipeline’s flow.

Pipe bursting & replacement lining

In the case of tree root invasions, we often recommend our pipe bursting and replacement lining method. This allows us to get rid of your damaged line and replace it with a new, strong one that can last up to fifty years. Both of these processes are completed internally so that we can avoid the cost and hassle of digging on your property.
