In this video, Roto-Rooter technicians show that trees can be the root of all evil. Our experts explain how tree roots search for any moisture they can find during a drought. If you notice that your sinks drain slowly, or you have backed up water and flooding in your home, you may have roots in sewer lines. Roto-Rooter uses an electronic snake cable with a special blade to cut through any roots. However, sometimes the problem needs more than the electronic snake cable. If the problem isn't caught in the early stages, it can break your sewer line. This will require replacing the sewer line which requires a backhoe and can be very costly. It's best to be proactive if you notice any issues, as it will be much more expensive and destructive to your yard if a broken sewer pipe needs to be replaced.
