Want to Prevent Tree Roots in Your Sewer Line?

Tree Roots - Clogged Drain RI

If you want to prevent tree roots in you sewer drain line then we suggest using root killer that you can buy any home improvement store. Follow the directions on the root killer as to how often you should treat your sewer drain.Clogged Drain RI

But if you often have a clogged sewer drain line... then this is what we would suggest using!

1) Most people first try to unclog the drain themselves using a plunger or a snake.

2) Calling a plumber is always helpful because they will have a video camera to inspect the pipe and find out what was causing the clog.  If you find out the cause of the problem is tree roots then you have two options! 

Option #1- If you want to slow or treat the problem and the plumber was able to get water to flow through the line, then you need to buy root killer at any home improvement store.  Again, follow the directions on the root killer as to how often you should treat your sewer drain.

Option #2-  If you want to stop the problem for good or you have no water flow, you then need to have the sewer line replaced by a licensed contractor

We hope this sewer drain line tip was helpful to you!
