Drain Clog Removal in Los Angeles - The Twin Plumbers Remove Tree Roots

For today’s blog, we thought we’d give you a glimpse of the Twin Plumbers in action!

We received a call the other day regarding a completely backed-up area drain on a Los Angeles residential property, and our experts promptly arrived at the scene. An area drain, also known as a “floor drain,” is a plumbing fixture installed in the ground of a structure or room — when they become clogged, they leave dirty standing water in your space. That’s why it’s so critical to maintain your area drains! On this rainy Los Angeles day, we went our to this homeowner’s property, did a sewer camera inspection to find the location of the obstruction, and excavated.

Check out what we found:

As you can see, the drain was been blocked by a gigantic tree root! When we removed the clog, all of the water that had been blocked in the line came gushing out. After we successfully cleared the pipe, we repaired the plumbing and the landscaping to be good as new.

What Happens When Tree Roots Invade Your Area Drains?

When tree roots from your landscaping invade your area drains, they can cause trouble for your plumbing fixtures, such as:

  • Back-Ups- If tree roots extend into your sewer line, they can cause blockages that send wastewater back into the home. This is serious bad news, as sewage is known to carry dangerous pathogens. If you have backflow from your main drain, call a professional right away!
  • Disjointing– When pipes become detached at the seams, this is known as “disjointing.” Tree roots can do this to your plumbing system if allowed to grow from too long — they enter the pipe by widening spaces in the attachments.

We hope this blog has been helpful to you. As always, thanks for reading!
