Tree Root Infiltration in Austin, TX

Locating Tree Root Infiltration

The easiest way to determine whether you have tree roots growing in your sewers or drains is to insert a video camera in the pipes and look. Our video camera inspections take around 30 minutes to complete and will identify the location and extent of any infiltration.

It’s a fast, efficient, and effective method of investigating the condition of your pipes that poses no risk of damage. 

Contact S & D Plumbing to schedule a video camera inspection of your sewer or drains in Austin today.

Repairing Tree Root Infiltration

The first step of any repair is to remove the offending tree root from the pipe. In most cases, we can do this by using our powerful hydro jets to blast the root and other debris away and flush it down the line. From start to finish, the hydro jetting process takes about an hour to complete.

Once the hydro jetting is finished, we’ll reinsert the camera to confirm the tree root was removed. We can then use trenchless repair technologies to insert an epoxy or durable pipe liner to restore the integrity of the pipe.
