Tree Roots In Drain Pipes “Blackjade Drain Clearing Division”

Tree roots in drainpipes is “Blackjade drain clearing” division
Plumbing issues go on all year round, but usually summer is the busiest time of year for us plumbers. Everything from un blocking blocked stormwater drains, replacing hot water heaters, fixing stuck garbage disposal units to fixing leaking taps frequently happen during the summer months. However, one of the worst summer plumbing problems is the issue of tree roots that grow and attach to sewer drainage pipes.
Why do tree roots grow around water pipes?
Usually this occurs when a tree is pointed too closely to a drain pipe. Particular types of trees have root systems that expand and have to find a drinking source, drain pipes are what the tree roots will typically go to first to gain the nutrients they need to continue to grow at a healthy rate. Because most drains aren’t solid enough to withstand the power of tree roots, the offending tree roots can break through and start growing inside. This will cause blocked drains in your toilets, sink, or bath tub.
Calling your local plumber!
The best thing to do for this type of problem is to call your local plumber to come in and use a jet rodder to clean out the drain. When the jet rodder is used, it eliminates the tree roots that were growing in the pipe. What it doesn’t do is kill the entire tree root system growing beside the drain pipe.
For those who don’t want to chop down the tree, it will mean having to call in your local plumber, at least once a year to fix your blocked drain. This can create considerable inconvenience, particularly if you need to take a shower before an important occasion and the drain becomes blocked.
