Tree roots chase liquid gold in drains

Did you know tree roots chase the liquid fertiliser in sewer drains?
That’s because the waste water running through your pipes is a constant source of moisture and nutrients.
In our dry continent a sewer pipe is an easy target for a tree root system that plays the long game.

Most of us use our plumbing every day.
When we brush our teeth, wash the dishes and of course shower and flush our toilets, we send the waste water off to the sewerage treatment works.
We are also sending liquid fertiliser along the pipes for our trees to feast upon.

That waste water usually runs along the bottom 1/3 of the pipe.
More on that later….

Spring brings shoots and tree roots

Spring in Australia brings new growth to our trees and shrubs.
New shoots above ground means the trees are growing underground as well, and new tree roots means blocked drains.
As Australia’s leading authority on tree roots in drains, with over 15,000 blocked drains under my belt and I’ve used all kinds of drain cleaners, its safe to say I know a lot about fixing blocked drains.
Having said that, I can tell you that there is a simple way to Stop Tree Roots in Drains.
It’s called Vaporooter!
Over the next few weeks I’ll share some of my blocked drain experiences and how you can prevent them from happening at your place ever again!
