Have you been experiencing a clogged drain and can’t seem to figure out what the issue is? In that case, it may be time to begin considering all the possible issues, including tree roots. Here at All Aloha Plumbing, we are here to provide some information on your tree root clog and how it may affect your plumbing!
Root Clog Causes
Cracks in pipes may be due to their age or a malfunction in assembly. Regardless, these cracks allow tree roots the opportunity to get inside.
Attraction To Moisture
Don’t forget that trees are living organisms that have been doing this life thing longer than us! They too need to stay hydrated. The moisture within your pipes is a huge attraction for them.
These roots will grow towards that moisture and ultimately end up inside your pipes.
Attraction To Vapors
As water routinely flows through your drains it can release vapors into the surrounding soil. This is a major attraction as well for tree roots. These vapors contain nutrients that cause tree roots to flock towards your pipes.
Think of it like when you smell your neighbor barbecuing and you instantly get hungry. The tree roots feel the same way towards your pipes and they brought their own plate to the cookout.
Signs Of Root Clog
Your toilet doesn’t have an appetite but regardless it still can sound like it has a sore stomach. First things first, however, make sure those groans are not coming from your own tummy! However, if your toilet is the culprit of the gurgling sounds you hear, it is likely caused by a root clog.
Slow Drainage System
As tree roots grow and expand inside your pipes, it may become more difficult for water to pass through. These roots cause a blockage within the pipes and slow the water down.
Unexplained Toilet Clogs
If you have been dealing with frequent clogs you may be wondering what the issue is. If you have already cleared your drains numerous times, then it may be a root clog. In this case, you are going to need the help of our professionals.
Pesky Foul Odors
Imagine routinely cleaning your restroom yet still having disgusting smells permeate around your home. The frustration may cause an equal headache as the odor! This is the reality for homeowners dealing with roots growing in their pipes.
These roots can block the passage of waste within your pipes. This traps that waste and keeps those smells traveling back up into your home. You might not need new cleaning supplies, but one of our plumbers to handle the issue!
