Do you know that you are responsible for your sewer pipes up to and where they meet the Sydney Water sewer main? And, a lot of people are shocked by this information.
You will actually be responsible in the case that your sewer pipe has been damaged by tree roots and those pipes are out in the middle of the road. While you may not want it, you will be responsible with the cost associated with that renewal, which includes council road opening fees.
But why do tree roots get into pipes?
A simple method of excavating a virgin soil can be a cause of why tree roots get into pipes. When plumbers excavate the soil to out the pipelines, this will till the soil. After completing the excavation process and laying out the pipes in the trenches, this will be followed by placing the excavated soil back into its location. Sometimes water and a compactor will be used to fill the soil back into its original state.
But even if it is back, the compact soil is never the same as when it was at the beginning. This provides the roots of nearby trees an easier path to search for other places of water nutrients which could lead them to stay on your pipes.
So what should you do if you think that trees are growing in the pipelines? Better contact your residential and commercial plumbing Purga to fix the problem right away. They will use different tools first to see if there really are roots on the pipelines, and if there are, they will remove the roots for you and see if the pipes will need replacing.
