Winchester Tree Root Ingress Removal Experts – No1 PHD

Drainage systems are a crucial part of every home and must be maintained correctly so that they continue to work without issue. However, some problems are near-impossible to prevent, with one snag common to Winchester, tree root ingress in your drainage pipes. This fault involves roots from nearby plants and trees breaking through pipes and damaging their structural integrity. Such a problem must be dealt with immediately to prevent major disruption and the possibility of costly repair work.

Here at No1 PHD, our staff have dealt with many drainage and home plumbing repairs throughout Winchester over the years. All of our drainage team are fully qualified and are confident in being able to successfully tackle any issue you’re experiencing. Be sure to call us today if you suspect that tree root ingress has occurred in your pipes and you need a local drainage team to rectify your problem.

What is Tree Root Ingress?

Tree roots spread out through the earth in search of nourishment, which is why they try to break through drainpipes. When this happens, it can cause irreversible damage to your drainage system and this usually results in the need for replacement pipes. Roots will continue to grow throughout your pipes and can result in the structural integrity of your setup being compromised, or disruptive blockages may occur. Such damage means your drains cannot function as intended, which causes issues for your household utilities.

If tree roots have forced their way into your drains, it is vital that you have the issue dealt with immediately. There are some key signs to keep an eye out for that will indicate that such damage might have occurred, including:

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

If roots have managed to break through into your pipework, then the only solution is a drainpipe replacement. This can be costly as a local drain excavation service may be needed at your home or commercial premises. This process must be carried out by a team of professional drainage experts, as only they have the equipment and knowledge required to handle the work correctly. The sooner tree root ingress is reported, the less disruptive repair work will need to be carried out, so it is vital to catch the problem early.

Inspection and Replacement Pipes

Upon arriving at your property, our team will first need to carry out an inspection to find out exactly where the roots have entered your drain. Our team take advantage of state-of-the-art fibre-optic drainage system cameras, which are fed into your pipes and provide us with live images of their inside walls. Through this inspection method, we can pinpoint where the roots have entered your drain and target that specific area.

After identifying the affected part of your pipe, be it a blockage or a crack to your pipework, our team will then be able to provide an effective solution to unblock, repair the leak or replace your pipework. In the case of tree root ingress, the damaged drainpipes might well need to be replaced, which would require our Winchester drain excavation team to initiate this work. Our staff always work with speed and efficiency on these jobs to ensure that minimal disruption is caused. We aim to have your new pipes fitted as soon as possible and make sure that your drainage system returns to optimal performance.

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.
