root intrusion
...pay attention to the lowest plumbing fixtures in your home.

Waco, Texas (PRWEB) April 18, 2013

When tree or bush roots grow through a crack or a bad joint in a pipe, it’s called root intrusion. Roots from trees and bushes hundreds of yards away can do significant damage to a plumbing system. The older the pipe, the more susceptible it is to cracks, breaks and deformations, thereby making it more likely to become a victim of root intrusion.

Since root intrusion can cause a major blockage in plumbing systems, it’s important to look for warning signs to avoid a plumbing emergency. To do so, pay attention to the lowest plumbing fixtures in your home.

For instance, after a bath or shower, look for the water to drain in a swirling, cyclonic action. If it does not, it could mean a sudden backup or flooding is waiting to strike. To prevent any damage, call a qualified, licensed plumber.

Licensed plumbing technicians can use a sewer camera to inspect underground plumbing systems. This sophisticated piece of technology allows the plumber to properly identify the problem and provide you with the best solution.
