Root invasion can be a devastating thing for your plumbing and sewer lines. Now that it’s fall and the weather has changed, trees find themselves on the hunt for nutrients. The root system will get more active than it has been, and this means that there is a good chance that the trees will get damaged.
Since the sewer lines are warm compared to the ground that surrounds them, and also moist, the tree roots will often be attracted towards them them. The trees want nutrients, and think that the sewer will be a source of those nutrients. Once the roots get into the sewer lines, they can cause a lot of problems for your pipes and for the drainage system in your home.
