Can Tree Roots Cause a Sewer Line Replacement?

If you’re experiencing real problems with your pipes like foul odors and sluggish drains and you’re at your wit’s end trying to find the problem– perhaps the problem isn’t in your home. It may be outside it.

No homeowner likes to hear the words ‘sewer line replacement’ but that may be a real possibility. Only a plumber service can tell you for sure, but too often tree roots, seeking moisture and nutrients, can worm their way into sewer lines and split them open, causing sewage contamination and the need to replace the pipes.

The problem is more prevalent in older homes, not just because of the age of the sewer lines, but in some cases because older lines are made from clay. Modern PVC lines, however, do not weather and hopefully will never have to be replaced.
