Roots in your pipes.

In the Norfolk area as anywhere else root intrusion in pipes is one of the most common causes of pipes to clog and brake. If not disturbed, the roots will completely fill the pipe with multiple hair-like root masses at each point of entry. A complete blockage may occur if the roots are not removed and root growth impeded. The increased pressure caused by roots often breaks the pipe and may result it total collapse, which requires repair or replacement. One of the biggest roots found in the Hampton Roads area was a root that grew from a customer’s sewer line to the city man hole is was approximately 2 feet in diameter and 4 feet long. 

If roots have entered your pipes a Norfolk Roto-Rooter technician can remove the roots using powerful cutting blades on the end of a drain cleaning cable. Your experienced neighborhood Norfolk plumber will recommend the application of Roto-Rooter ® Root Destroyer™ to retard future root growth. Roto-Rooter® Root Destroyer™ will kill only the roots growing in the pipes and will not affect the rest of your tree’s root system or the health of the tree. Simply pour the recommended dosage into your toilet bowl and flush the product into the line twice a year. Roto-Rooter® Root Destroyer™ is available only from your Roto-Rooter service technician in Hampton Roads area or at the local Norfolk Roto-Rooter office.
