Basingstoke Tree Root Ingress Removal Experts

Drainage systems play a silent but vital role in our everyday lives as they help regulate the flow of waste from our homes. Unfortunately, due to their frequent use, they can encounter issues that cause major disruption. One such problem is tree root ingress; a process in which roots from nearby plant and trees break through your pipes. This problem is one that needs to be addressed as soon as possible to avoid the need for full drainpipe replacement.

At No1 PHD, we have tackled many cases of tree root ingress in the past to a great degree of success. All of our staff are fully qualified drainage experts, so they are confident in being able to solve all issues for clients in Basingstoke. Reach out to us today if you require assistance with your root ingress drainage problems.

What is Tree Root Ingress?

Tree roots naturally make their way through the soil looking for nourishment, so if they encounter a drainpipe, they will attempt to breakthrough. If this happens, it can be detrimental for your drainage system, as roots will continue to grow through your pipes. This can cause severe blockages as well as structural damage to your drains that will render them useless.

There are some key indicators to take note of that will let you know if tree root ingress has happened in your pipes. The following signs are similar to those that suggest a drain blockage has occurred:

  • Slow drainage
  • Low water pressure
  • Unpleasant odour
  • Resting Water

The key is to catch tree root ingress early on to prevent catastrophic damage from occurring. If the roots manage to break through your pipe, the only solution is complete drain replacement, which is both time-consuming and can be costly. It is imperative that a professional drainage team such as No1PHD handles the problem, as they will have the tools and procedures required to carry out effective repairs. The sooner you catch the problem, the less disruption you’ll have to endure.

The Removal Process

When we arrive at your property, we will first carry out an inspection to find out where the roots have entered your drain. Whereas this stage would have been lengthy and destructive in the past, we utilise state of the art fibre optic drain cameras to make the process easy. This method feeds us images of your drain so that we can pinpoint exactly where the infestation has taken place.

Once the source of the problem has been found, we can get to work on repairs. Our team make use of high-pressure water jets and other tools to remove roots, before fixing the damaged area of the pipe. If the ingress is particularly severe, you may require new piping in certain areas. Regardless of what work you need to be done, you can expect our team to work with speed and efficiency at all times.

After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.

For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
