Roots in Sewer Pipe

Home / Roots in Sewer Pipe

USA Pipe Repair was called out to a home in North Chesterfield to repair the connection from a lateral sewer line to the main. A large clump of roots had infiltrated the line and completely clogged the sewer. We began the job with locating the problem by using a locator combined with our camera; this gave us the exact location and depth of the sewer line. After removing the damaged pipe, we found a root cluster approximately nine foot long had worked its way into the line. In order to remove this large root without digging further, we had to jet the line. This is not common, but this problem had grown very large in the three years the home was vacant. Upon removal of the roots, we were able to install a new connection and close the access pit. After seeding the area, it appears as if it were never excavated.
