Identifying and Fixing Drain Issues Caused by Tree and Plant Roots

Tree roots can cause serious problems for drainage systems, including clogs and damage that may require costly repairs such as manual excavation, drain relining, or drain replacement.

To avoid these issues, it is recommended that property buyers have a drain specialist inspect the drainage system for potential red flags, such as pipes located near trees, shrubs, and hedges. Liberty Drain Co can help you do this in North Port.


How Do Tree Roots Get Into Your Drains?

Roots can enter the drainage system through various openings, such as pipe joints, fractures, and cracks in the walls and inspection chambers. Many drainage systems in the United States are made of materials like cast iron or PVC, which are vulnerable to tree roots that can grow and penetrate the pipes, eventually reducing the pipe’s bore size.


How To Repair Root Damaged Drains?

Even newer systems with rubber-sealed couplings and PVC piping can still be susceptible to root ingress, as they may not have root barriers or be surrounded by concrete. The Liberty Drain Co team in North Port has a variety of methods to remove root growth from drains, including cutting the roots, relining the pipes, or excavation if the damage is severe.


Why Do Tree Roots Enter Your Drains?

Tree roots are attracted to drains due to the presence of water and nutrients, and they can easily travel through disturbed soil around the drain, services, and house foundations, as well as porous materials like driveway and patio sub-bases. It is possible to find roots flowing from the wall of an original trench to the drainage system even at depths of two or three feet.


Are You Insured For Tree Root Damage To Drains?

Homeowners in North Port should consider having tree root damage coverage through their insurance provider, as some policies may not cover it. However, it is important to note that some insurance companies have denied tree root drainage claims during recent economic downturns.
