Eradication of 3 methods for infestation of a tree root sewer.
In homes with large trees or shrubs near the premises of their house, tree root sewer infestation is very common. There are also other types of medium-size plants, which have deep roots that are very invasive when seeking the rich soil and water, and not just the tree’s size that determine if the root can be invasive and wide. Below are some methods to eradicate or reduce the number of roots of the tree which have infested your sewer. Note that the efficiency, length, working and time required for each method and, of course, equipment and supplies will vary.
- Root the tree causing the attack from the root
If the root source is destroyed and the current Root attack doesn’t bother you again, the best solution is to take out the tree from the root source. The root source is the root source. Tree or shrub species are most likely to have extremely aggressive roots so you can only uproot the tree. This is also a viable method when the roots already damage the pipes too much. Naturally, it prevents you from spending a ridiculous amount of money on a major repair root to prevent the root attack from becoming worse.
2. Trimming the roots
A mechanical auger may be rented to cut down some small roots, which have invaded your pipes—but you have to hire a plumber or sewer maker if you want to have more professional cleaning. This is not the most effective method as the roots, especially medium to big roots, cannot be cut down by the mechanical auger. Even if you have already cut the roots successfully, it remains in the sewer pipe and must be manually extracted or only becomes a cause of obstruction. If you allow a professional to do this, of course, the task will be non-existent, and you can be sure that the cleaning is done expertly and without major problems. Some homeowners still prefer this maintenance of the sewer tubes more since they often don’t want to take the trouble to remove the root tree or simply love the plants in their vicinity.
3. Herbicide Root Murderer
Herbicides are very effective in killing the roots in the sewer pipe and even in suppressing other roots in the sewer line. Copper sulfate is a famous compound that is essentially poisonous to trees and other plant lives, in the majority of such herbicides. By flushing chemicals down the bowl of the toilet, one common way to kill the roots using these herbicides. The toilet tube connection is directly connected to the main sewer tube, so that the herbicide is poured. The roots remain in the pipeline, just as the mechanical auger solution, and must be drawn manually or flushed down the tube with a hydrojets.
