Tree root ingress drain blockage
Tree root ingress is one of the main causes of blocked drains, this will lead to an overflowing manhole and more serious costly problems such as drain relining, drain excavation or pitch fibre repairs. With this in mind we would recommend having a cctv drain survey where we will inspect your drainage system and find any problems. Tree roots find there way into drainage systems through cracks in pipes and inspection chamber walls.
When finding tree roots, to remove them from the drain we use High Pressure Water Jetting to cut roots or a mechanical root cutter.
If you catch the issue in time your drains could be lined to protect from future root ingress hence saving you money and inconvenience from an expensive excavation.
