Tree Roots causing the trouble? Tree roots are a serious issue when they start wrapping around your plumbing pipes. This is a common occurrence in the Vancouver WA metro area. Every home seems to have several trees in the yard to improve the landscaping. However, once the tree roots start to wrap around your plumbing pipes, it’s only a matter of time before they cause breakage, resulting in leaks that will only get worse. Here’s some information from Super Terry Plumbing that might help you prevent sewer line breaks.

How to Stop Tree Roots in a Sewer Line

If you’re noticing that your sinks or bathtubs are draining slowly, or if you hear a strange gurgling noise coming from your toilet, it could mean that your sewer lines have been invaded by tree roots.

Believe it or not, despite all the unsightly things that travel through your sewer lines, tree roots are naturally drawn to them. Your pipes are filled with water, oxygen, and all kinds of nutrients, so they’re prime real estate for a tree looking to plant its roots.
