While the beautiful mature shade trees may look amazing in your Southern California yard and enhance the landscape perfectly, they may also be wreaking havoc on your underground plumbing and pipes. Many people are not aware, but root growth from nearby trees can mean costly issues for your Southern California home’s plumbing and pipes.
How Tree Roots Cause Problems for Plumbing and Pipes
Since a tree needs organic nutrients to live, its feeder roots constantly look for these nutrients, and they see the sewer line of your home as the perfect solution. This is especially true if there is a leak or weak spot in the sewer line, where they love to literally plant roots and grow into any holes the pipes may have. Eventually, the root will continue to grow uncontrollably until your pipes are completely blocked.
Here are some tell-tale signs from the professional plumbers at Plumbing Concepts in Corona, CA so you will know what to look for when you check to see if your California home is in danger of root invasion or other issues from trees.
