Let's Get To The Root Of The Problem!!

Updated: Apr 10, 2019

This picture is showing roots that were removed from a home owners pipe. I know you may be wondering how did tree roots get inside? Well let Empire explain! In older homes where the plumbing has not been restored in decades, some of the sewer lines and pipes may begin to have tree roots make their way inside.

This is caused by holes which have formed due to corrosion. The roots are attracted to water vapor and will cause them to penetrate through the holes/cracks and feed off the water. The result is a sewer line/pipe infested with roots, grease, paper, solid matter and sometimes a ruptured pipe which would need replacement. IF YOU ARE WORRIED YOU MAY HAVE THIS PROBLEM Call Empire Water Main & Sewer we will take the stress away (718)715-4862!!!
