Removing Tree Roots From Sewer Lines in NJ
Tree roots like to follow moisture and get into sewer lines. This causes problems that get more serious over time. Removing tree roots from sewer lines in NJ is a common sewer cleaning service that we have been successfully performing for many years.
A Rooter Pros has the experience and specialized equipment to detect and eliminate the root problem. If the problem is not corrected, the sewer pipe may be damaged. A Rooter Pros performs sewer line root removal in Union County and surrounding areas in New Jersey.
We use professional video camera inspection equipment that lets us (and you) see where the problem is and how best to correct it. We may use a snaking tool that can cut and drag the roots out, or we may use hydrojetting equipment that applies very high water pressure focused accurately on the root intrusion. The hydrojetter can cut through the roots and clean the inside surface of the pipe at the same time.
A video inspection is done again to see that the pipe is completely clear of roots.
Permanent Solutions to Tree Root Intrusion
There are two permanent solutions to tree root blockage of your sewer lines. Both methods are trenchless sewer line repair techniques. This means that a complete excavation or digging of your yard to expose the pipe is not required. The trenchless methods can be done with minimal digging.
Trenchless Sewer Repair Methods that Avoid Root Intrusion
Sewer Pipe Bursting
With sewer pipe bursting, a bursting head is pushed through the existing pipe, creating a new pipe as it travels to the end of the old pipe.
Sewer Pipe Lining
Using pipe lining, a new pipe lining is created using epoxy that results in a stronger, perfectly smooth pipe with no joints.
