Is pipe relining the only way to Stop Tree Roots in Drains?

No! Pipe relining is definitely NOT the only way to keep tree roots out of drains.

Some other methods include:

  1. Chemical treatments: Chemical root killers can be put down the drain to kill the roots and prevent future growth.
  2. Cut the roots: Tree roots can be physically cut out of the pipes using specialized tools like High-Pressure water drain cleaning or an electric eel. Depending on the circumstance both are great ways to cut roots.
  3. Regular maintenance: Regular cleaning and maintenance of your pipes can help prevent root re-growth by removing debris and preventing blockages.
  4. Excavation and renewal: Just as it sounds, excavate the existing pipe line and replace it with PVC pipe and fittings. That usually includes excavation by hand or a machine like a back-hoe and depending on where the pipes are located under your lawns and gardens, driveway or swimming pool, reparations to your site can be huge.
  5. Tree root barrier installation: A barrier, like a root-resistant liner or metal mesh, can be installed around the pipes to prevent roots growing around and into the pipes.

In some cases, a combination of these methods may be used for an effective solution.

When fixing your blocked drains, a “one size fits all” approach is outdated!

The best approach depends on your circumstance and specifically, what is going on with the drains at your place.
