Tree Roots and Drains

It is practically impossible for tree roots to actually break into drains and associated pipe work. It is much easier for the roots to simply grow around the pipe and carry on growing past it.

However, if an old rusty pipe with poor joints is leaking into the surrounding soil this will attract tree roots like bees to honey, which will then exploit the existing weakness.

Replacement of faulty drains/pipes with modern plastic materials will eliminate the leak and stop problems from happening again.
