5 Ways to Prevent Blocked Drains

These simple measures will go a long way to prevent roots from infiltrating and destroying your sewer pipes

    1. Use pipes made of Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) for new and replacement drains. PVC pipes are strong enough to repel the tree roots. Experts agree that PVC is the best material for reducing the risk of tree root blockages.
    2. Don’t plant trees near pipes. This seems simple enough, but many home and business owners don’t realize what constitutes as ‘near’ when we’re talking tree roots.   Many Australian tree roots have an incredibly wide spread.
    3. Pick proper foliage. Eucalyptus, for example, can have roots systems that spread out as little as 6 metres. Hills Weeping Fig, on the other hand, can have a root spread upto 60 metres.
    4. Maintain your pipes. Wear and tear, cracks, and leaks can cause nutrient-rich water to seep into the soil around your pipes. This attracts tree roots straight to your pipes.
    5. Routinely check and clear your sewer drain. Though roots can be attracted to any type of water-bearing line, they are most often lured towards sewer drains. An expert plumber and drain cleaner can come by and clear roots out of your pipes before they become a big problem.
    6. Compare Vaporooter and  Stop Tree Roots in Drains. Tree canopy
