Tree Root Ingress On Drainage

Repairing Pipes, Sewers and Drainage Caused By Tree Root Damage

Tree root ingress is probably the second most common cause of drainage blockages, which if left can lead to serious joint displacement and possibly a full drain collapse. Roots will naturally seek a route to a water source and often will start to grow in the joints of the drain run. Over a period of time the roots will further encroach into the pipework, which will reduce the cross-sectional flow causing blockages to occur.

We have specialist equipment which when used in conjunction with the high-pressure water jetting unit will allow the swift and safe removal of the offending roots.

There are a few methods that can be used to sort out drain pipes damaged by tree roots:

  • Patch Drain Repair - A great way to fix the pipe by using a resin patch inserted inside the pipe
  • Drain Lining - Using a resin to repair the pipe and can be used for the whole length of the pipe
  • Excavation - A very time consuming and costly method where the pipe has to be dug out and replaced because the damage is so great.
