Tree roots usually live buried down in the ground, where they absorb water from the ground and important nutrients from the soil. And this is precisely what a sewer line includes. Tree roots love water, that’s why they like living in a sewer line. If tree roots see its way into the pipe, the root will start to grow and continue to grow. These roots will eventually get your sewer line blocked and create a huge problem.

How can Ryan Old Plumbing help you unblock your sewers?

If you start experiencing these problems, you must call the experts that can help you determine and fix the problem by:

CCTV Drain Cameras: If your sewer line is facing repetitive blockages then the best thing to do is to use a CCTV drain camera to determine the length or degree of the problem as well as estimating the condition of your sewers, drains, and pipes.

This equipment can quickly recognize drains that have subsided or are shattered or broken.

Furthermore, this device can help eliminate the demand of digging or excavating up of drains. This means no mess at all. There isn’t a drain that our CCTV can’t observe and this can also provide a footage that you can see for yourself.

Once the investigation is complete, then Ryan Old Plumbing can advise you on the best plan of action depending on the results.

 Jet Rodding machine: This kind of device is used for clearing of drains and blockages in pipes using a high-pressure water jetting system. This can be used in diverse ways including unblocking drains or toilet, clearing sewer line and draining storm-water. Interestingly, this water-based method, due to its high-pressure 500psi force, can cut through all sorts of blockages but is gentler on existing groundwork and drainage than the older electric eel system. This is an effective way to clear blocked sewer line.
