Causes of Sewer Line Tree Root Invasion in Marine

Marine’s soil conditions, drought cycles, and abundance of mature trees make it prone to root invasion issues. Trees seek nutrients and moisture wherever they can find it – and old cracked pipes are the perfect place.

Without proper pipe maintenance, small hairline cracks in your Marine sewer line gives way to small root growth. Over time, thicker woody roots take hold, expanding deeper into pipes. Common causes of minor pipe cracks allowing root infiltration include:

  • Old or Deteriorating Sewer Pipes: Cracks from age, corrosion, shifting soil.
  • Poor Drainage Materials: Like orangeburg pipe or clay pipes.
  • Improper Installations: Bad connections, offsets, botched repairs.

Major root blockages don’t happen overnight. But if neglected, roots can fully clog Marine sewer lines, resulting in:

  • Backups of sewage into showers, sinks, toilets
  • Flooding of wastewater onto floors and foundations
  • Unpleasant gurgling sounds from drain lines
  • Lingering sewage odors indoor or outdoor
  • Slow flowing sinks/showers/toilets throughout home

At the first signs of slow drainage, sewer smells, or standing water – call (314) 568-7718 for professional drain cleaning and diagnosis in Marine. Our technicians work fast to remove the immediate blockage. We then diagnose the root cause and advise the best solution for permanent relief & future prevention.

Sewer Line Inspections in Marine

The only way to accurately diagnose the severity of root intrusion into your Marine property is with a remote camera pipe inspection. This specialized diagnosis is always included complimentary with Pioneer Plumbing’s sewer repair services.

Our Marine plumbers use state-of-the-art sewer cameras to thoroughly inspect the full length of your underground pipes. You’ll see on a real-time video monitor exactly where any breaches, cracks, breaks, or root infiltrations exist. Only after we determine the exact location and scope of damage are we able recommend the right solutions.

Common problems our Marine video pipe inspections identify include:

  • Root Overgrowth: Fine root hairs to large root masses growing into pipes through cracks or loose joints.
  • Pipe Corrosion Deterioration: Rust, scale, corrosion holes along pipe walls.
  • Botched Repairs: Bad connections, offsets, crooked pipe alignments decreasing flow.
  • Foreign Objects: Sticks, rocks, debris obstructing pipe openings.
  • Bellies or Offsets: Sunken areas in pipes holding standing water and roots.

With our high-resolution RIDGID sewer cameras, even the smallest hairline crack or breach can be detected and documented – before it turns into an emergency.

We even take precise measurements so repairs can be made with laser accuracy. You’ll also receive digital photographs and video documentation of all inspected pipes.

Trenchless Tree Root Removal From Sewer Lines in Marine

As longtime Marine sewer repair specialists, Pioneer Plumbing Restoration always turns to cutting-edge trenchless methods for tree root removal whenever possible.

Trenchless sewer line repair means no digging up floors, foundations or destroying landscaping to remove invasive roots or access pipes. Using small external access points, we can clear even the most severe root infestations from pipes quickly and neatly.

Pioneer’s Marine plumbing technicians are experts using:

Powerful Hydrojetters

High-pressure water jetting is an advanced root cutting technique using extreme water pressure. We attach heavy duty hoses to external sewer cleanouts to blast powerful streams of water deep into your pipes.

Pressure levels up to 5000 PSI will easily cuts through the toughest roots clustered in pipes without chemicals or machines. Hydrojetters leave pipes smooth and debris-free with force equivalent to a firehose.

Root Cutting Augers

For smaller root obstructions inside Marine plumbing, our root saws do the trick. Miniature power augers lined with razor sharp blades easily shred through root masses to clear blockages fast.

All without having to excavate and replace pipes. We simply access your cleanouts, send the augers down the line, then retrieve the tangled root debris. We inspect pipes again afterwards to ensure full removal.

Root Foaming Chemical Treatment

Foaming root killers work well for moderate root intrusions in Marine clay or cast iron pipes. Applied through cleanouts, expanding foams permeate cracks and voids around pipe joints. As it expands, the bacteria-based foams smother roots and halt further growth.

For best results, we pretreat lines before augering and hydrojetting. Root foam adds lubrication to help cuttings wash away easily with no Pipe damage.

Pioneer Plumbing stands behind trenchless tree root removal services with 3-year warranties against re-growth or re-occurrence. We also take steps during repairs to guard against roots returning such as sealing pipe cracks/joints and installing root guards.

Total Sewer Replacement in Severe Cases

In cases of complete pipe decay or collapse in Marine, total sewer line replacement is the only solution. While trenchless methods should always be tried first due to reduced mess and cost – some root infestations or pipe conditions can only be rectified by installing entirely new piping.

Cases where total Marine sewer line replacement are necessary include:

  • Complete Pipe Deterioration: When the main sewer line piping material (cast iron, clay, concrete) is too far gone and crumbling.
  • Total Blockages: Solid root masses or collapses obstructing the full bore making cameras and augers impossible to pass through.
  • Poor Flow In Multiple Locations: Offsets, low spots, intrusions causing too many flow issues in a single line.
  • Changing Pipe Materials: Transitioning from tricky materials like Orangeburg pipes to standard ABS/PVC piping.

Pioneer Plumbing handles full sewer replacements in Marine efficiently with minimal landscape disruption using trenchless methods whenever viable. This includes pipe bursting to break up old lines while pulling new pipes behind.

In cases where heavier machinery is absolutely required for access, we take great care to protect landscaping. All surfaces disrupted are carefully restored to original or better condition after pipe installations.

Frequently Asked Sewer Repair Questions

Customers in Marine often call us with similar concerns about their localized tree root or sewer issues. Here are answers to some of the most common questions we receive about diagnosing and fixing residential and commercial sewer line problems.

Common signs of Marine sewer lines damaged by infiltrating tree roots include:
Slow flowing drainage fixtures throughout home
Standing water or soils around cleanouts/drains
Sewer gas smells indoors or outdoors
Gurgling sounds from waste lines
Toilets suddenly backing up and overflowing
If you notice any indicators of blockages, don’t hesitate to call. We can isolate the problem area and take immediate action with our hydro jetters and cutting augers to restore flow before backup damages occur.

Most basic insurance policies do NOT cover damages from blocked sewers or invasive roots. That’s why it’s vital to have regular maintenance by a professional Marine plumbing company like ours to stay ahead of problems before they turn into expensive disasters.
We do offer affordable Preventative Maintenance Plans (PMPs) for homeowners wanting to safeguard against major issues through twice-yearly professional drain cleanings/inspections. Well worthwhile for peace of mind and keeping plumbing warranties valid!

Trees roots will always seek out cracks and flaws in sewer systems to access nutrients and moisture. If underlying pipeline issues aren’t address during repairs, blockages can recur.
The keys are:
Performing diagnostics to identify ALL root intrusions
Sealing pipe joints/cracks properly to forestall re-infestation
Follow-up maintenance to ensure roots are kept at bay
Pioneer Plumbing offers Marine customers root problem warranties lasting 1 to 5 years. We also remind customers when it’s time for follow-up inspections or cleanings to prevent new growth.

To prevent roots from repeatedly invading Marine’s sewer infrastructure, Pioneer’s expert plumbers take a multi-step approach:
Hydrojetting/augering to shear roots out mechanically via interior access point
Foaming along pipe interiors to deter regrowth
Sealing pipe joints & sections where tiny rootlets initially emerge
Lining pipes internally if cracks/gaps are too extensive
Replacing pipe segments entire where existing lines are too far gone
With oversight by our Marine project managers, we re-inspect repairs frequently to ensure no new root sprouts. Offering permanent solutions is our mission!

Blocked drains and sewer gases will continue plaguing properties unless underlying flaws get properly addressed.
Pioneer Plumbing installs safeguards against future root invasions including:
Pipe Joint Sealing – Injected sealants for small cracks
Cured-In-Place-Piping (CIPP)- Pipe strengthening industrial grade liners
Drain Cleaning/Inspections – Professional maintenance programs
Sump Pumps – Keep groundwater from further degrading underground pipes
French Drains – Redirect surface water flows away from sewers
Root Guards – Physical barriers preventing roots contacting pipes
Our Marine plumbing techs will diagnose all vulnerabilities and recommend a tailored prevention plan based on inspection findings. Call us at (314) 568-7718 for a free consultation.

Cost depends on length of piping impacted, diameter size, materials, digging requirements, permit fees, and other specs unique to each Marine property.
With our localized pipe assessment, we provide a flat rate quote upfront covering all anticipated work. NO surprise charges.
Pioneer also offers financing plans allowing homeowners/businesses to get necessary work completed immediately while paying affordable monthly installments. Pipe repairs don’t need to remain out of reach due to budget constraints!
