How Tree Roots Can Damage Your Pipes

August 20, 2019 in Pipe Inspection, Trenchless Pipe Repair

At Environmental Pipe Cleaning, we make it a priority to help you stay up-to-date when it comes to taking care of your plumbing system. One of the most common causes of pipe problems is tree root invasion. While trees add to your landscape, shade areas of your property, create a barrier around your property, and more, their roots can expand twice the size of their system. This allows tree roots to grow directly through and around your plumbing system causing problems that disrupt your daily activities.

Trees do not need to be completely removed to protect your plumbing system from tree root intrusion, but there are several reasons they are damaging to your sewer and drain pipes.

They Ruin the Structural Integrity of Your Pipes

Generally, tree roots will grow towards your pipes because they detect moisture coming from the pipe. This moisture could come from a small pinhole leak or a frozen pipe melting and producing moisture. When this happens, the tree root will break through your pipes and ruin the structural integrity of your pipeline.

They Impede Pipe Flow

Proper pipe flow allows clean water to flow into your home and waste to safely flow away from your property. When tree roots invade your pipes, they will impede the flow of your pipes and create a barrier that prevents this from occurring.

They Damage Your System Overtime

It is amazing how long and strong trees roots actually grow. If left unchecked tree roots can grow into the pipes, then can grow directly into the foundation of the home. Tree root invasion can be difficult to detect because your pipes are underground in addition to the time it takes for tree roots to grow and cause problems.

Environmental Pipe Cleaning relies on pipe bursting because it’s safe, environmentally-friendly, and requires little to no downtime following the pipe replacement. Trenchless methodologies cut out unnecessary digging and excavation. Instead, trenchless pipe bursting is a faster and safe approach for replacing pipes.

1. Pipe Bursting Is Safe

Pipe bursting doesn’t require strenuous excavation and digging. This makes it much safer than traditional methods.

There’s no need for heavy and dangerous excavation equipment, so it’s a very safe approach.

2. Pipe Bursting Is Environmentally-Friendly

Trenchless pipe bursting ruptures old pipes and slides in replacement ones. Its lack of excavation makes it an environmentally-friendly repair. Instead of ripping apart your lawn and disrupting the environment, technicians enter your pipeline through entry points. They use bursting heads to push away damaged pipes and fit in a new, more durable one. It doesn’t require toxic chemicals that are harmful to the environment. Trenchless pipe bursting is safe for humans and safe for Mother Earth.

3. Pipe Bursting Requires Little Downtime

Traditional pipe replacement requires channels and a lengthy cleanup. None of this is needed during trenchless pipe bursting. The entire process is quick with minimal downtime. As soon as the technician gets your new High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) pipe inserted, the project is done. All that’s left is cleaning up the few tools your technician used.
