Roots in the sewer line can be a common cause of plumbing issues within your home. If you are experiencing frequent backups from your basement floor drain, or other lines in the house it is best to determine the cause early on.

To determine the existence or severity of roots in your sewer line, you may require a camera inspection of your drain lines. During a camera inspection, you can see exactly what’s going on in there directly on a video monitor. You can even keep a copy of the video on DVD or even a USB stick to help you track the progress of any roots in your pipes.

Roots in pipes can cause damage that may require a replacement of your sewer line so it is always best to stay knowledgeable regarding the maintenance of your sewer line to prevent potentially costly situations.
