Signs Your Bellevue Pipes are Invaded with Tree Roots
Bellevue and the surrounding communities are filled with beautiful trees, but tree roots can lead to invasive roots on your property. Those roots will naturally try to find sources of moisture and nutrients, which may draw them to your water or sewer line. As they creep into the pipes, the roots will block the flow of water, and can even build up additional debris. You may experience clogs or back-ups in many appliances throughout your home, which can be a tell-tale sign of tree root invasion.
Leaks and other problems are also likely to occur along the root-infested area. If you notice damp areas of your lawn, or areas that seem particularly lush, that can indicate a problem with the water or sewer line. Sewer line leaks can also have a distinct, off-putting smell.

Repairing Your Bellvue Pipes
Our skilled technicians will use one of many trenchless methods to break up the roots in your pipe. Hydro jetting uses an extremely high-powered stream of water is used to break up and flush away obstructions. We can also use root cutters to clear particularly stubborn roots. After the materials are washed away, a pipe lining is used to seal the pipe and fill in cracks or other damage that allowed for roots to get into your pipes. Clear resin adheres the lining to your pipes to create a new durable coating within your existing pipe. In some cases, trenchless pipe replacement, also known as pipe bursting, can be necessary.
