You must see this Vaporooter Case Study

If you’re a Strata Property manager or a home owner and you’ve got blocked drains caused by tree roots, you should definitely consider Vaporooter. It’s been around for 56 years because it works!

Watch this 2:00 min YouTube clip to see how tree roots grow in your pipes and the damage that can be caused.

If you’re wondering whether or not, you should have your drains and pipes treated with Vaporooter, this real case study of a drain pipe inspection should remove any doubt that you should do it.

You are going to see through high-technology CCTV cameras that we can actually put through the pipe as we’re doing now we can see inside the pipe.

One of the things very few people know is how tree roots find their way into pipes.

The way they do that is they find first the condensation on top of the pipe that’s created when warm water flows through your drains and pipes. Once they’ve found a source of water in the condensation, then they start looking for nutrients, which they get by extracting it from the fluids that actually flow through your pipes.

Tree roots find their way into your pipes through tiny little cracks, usually in joints between two pipe segments or some kind of structural damage to the pipe. You can see here that once the tree roots come into the pipe, they can create a lot of obstruction to the flow within the drain.

One of the things that a lot of people don’t know is that once you start cutting tree roots they’re going to, just like a hedge or a rose bush, grow thicker and stronger every single time they’re cut.

So to just cut tree roots out of a drain pipe is not a solution.

That’s why you need a long-term strategy like Vaporooter with the annual treatment that’s guaranteed to keep tree roots at bay.

You want to make absolutely sure that you sleep well at night knowing that your pipes are not going to look like this.

Without Vaporooter, that’s exactly what’s happening! Your drains and pipes are getting clogged one more root at a time.

Which tree roots invade sewer pipes? Deciduous or Evergreen?

85% of Blocked Drains are caused by tree roots

Deciduous tree roots can be more invasive to sewer pipes than evergreen tree roots. Deciduous trees have a more aggressive root system that tends to spread out widely in search of moisture and nutrients. This can cause the roots to grow into pipes and cause blocked drains or even greater damage.

On the other hand, evergreen tree roots tend to grow deeper in search of water and are less likely to spread out widely. As a result, they are less likely to cause problems with pipes. However, it’s worth noting that the infestation of tree roots can vary depending on the species of tree and the soil conditions.

It’s also worth noting that it’s not only the species of tree that matters, but also the location where the tree is planted. A tree planted near a sewer pipe is more likely to cause damage to the pipe, regardless of whether it’s an evergreen or deciduous tree.

It’s always good idea to consult with an arborist or a plumber before planting a tree near existing sewer pipes or underground utilities.

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.

If you’re not sure which method is best for your circumstance, ask me.

Remove Roots in Pipes with Vaporooter

While trees contribute to the value of property, the health of citizens and the basic aesthetics of the environment, their roots can be extremely intrusive. When this intrusion happens in sewer lines, the tree roots cause extensive damage to the pipes. Implementing a process to remove tree roots from a clogged drain is essential in order to ensure the free flow of the waste water collection system.

A tree root that continues to grow will cause problems as roots will grow toward moisture through a continuous process. Tree root damage to drains is the result of roots that grow one cell at a time, enabling the root to penetrate extremely small openings in the pursuit of nourishment.

Once the root has entered a pipe, tree root damage escalates. A clogged drain caused by roots in sewer pipes is a much more formidable adversary than a basic clog. Once the damage occurs and the pipe is penetrated, the root can divide hundreds of times to form an enormous mass of tender root ends.

It is important to remove roots in pipes before a devastating backup occurs. The mass of roots within a clogged drain usually collects a thick coating of grease, causing it to become heavy and hang in the water. This hanging creates grit settlement and shoaling. As debris and sewage solids continue to build in the clogged drain, it piles on the root mass until a blockage occurs.

A common solution is to use an auger on the roots in sewer pipes to remove them from the sewer lines. This process to address a tree root problem can actually allow the tree roots to grow back bigger and stronger than before, thereby exacerbating the problem. A better solution that is not only easier to apply, but also ensures roots in drains do not continue to be a problem, is the Vaporooter solution.

Vaporooter is the perfect solution to remove tree roots from sewer lines as it is safe to use and does not hurt trees or other plants above ground. The use of Vaporooter approaches the level of 100 percent effectiveness in the process to remove roots in pipes. In fact, when used in annual applications, Vaporooter has proven to be the safest and most effective process to remove tree roots from sewer lines.

Delivered in a foam application by a certified technician, Vaporooter ensures elimination of your tree root problem. The foam ensures that the combination of herbicides, Metham Sodium (herbicide), and Dichlobenil (growth inhibiting agent), reaches every root to address any ongoing tree root problem. The roots will no longer grow in the sewer pipes and this will allow for the free and clear flow of fluids.

The use of a foam application also controls the amount of time the herbicide combination is in contact with the tree root to remove the roots in pipes. No other method of removing tree roots has been able to deliver the same safe and effective process as Vaporooter.
