There are a number of reasons that your plumbing system’s sewer line is buried beneath your property—for one, it’s more attractive this way! But the main reason for this is for safety and functionality. Unfortunately, this means that not only is your sewer line out of sight—and therefore hard to spot problems with—it is susceptible to damage from things such as tree roots searching for water.
When it comes to sewer line damage and clogs, tree roots are more common of a threat than you may realize, and the removal and repair of such a problem requires professional Winnetka, IL sewer line services. As you’d expect, tree roots crave water, so even the tiniest of leaks in your sewer line can attract them. Tree roots are not the only threat to your sewer pipe, but it’s certainly important to be aware of them.
