Rooter service originally got its name from the problem it was intended to solve—tree root infiltration into sewer lines. Today, rooter services are used to address a variety of problems that cause clogs. By using the latest technology, including hydro-jetting, our Woodland Hills rooter service can get your piping systems back online in no time.
Tree root infiltration in sewer lines is a serious problem, and invasive tree roots can create major headaches. The roots can enter the sewer lines through small cracks and grow into the sewer line, causing it to break. In addition to tree root infiltration, sewer lines can become clogged by a buildup of debris, non-flushable wipes, and foreign objects flushed down toilets or drains.
The rate of root growth depends on several factors like the health of the trees, the soil, water supply and the kind of tree. However, tree root growth is likely to accelerate rapidly once any roots have entered the pipe through cracks or joints.
Tree roots can cause pipes to rupture as pressure builds up inside the pipe from restricted flow.
