Tree Roots And Your Plumbing

Having trees and shrubs on your property and adding unique landscaping variations is a great thing and the perfect way to make your backyard an enjoyable oasis. However,  doing so can also cause a lot of potential issues with your drainage plumbing. Roots are one of the most common issues that our San Diego plumbers are called onto properties to help with.

The reason for this is that roots growing from these types of plants and trees are excellent at seeking out moisture, And a source of moisture comes from the underground drainage pipes on your property. When this happens, these roots can often wrap around your drainage pipes and eventually make their way into them causing clogs. This is why any San Diego plumbing company will advise you to take precaution when planting trees and shrubbery near drainage pipes are.

If you begin noticing issues with your drain pipes, that might indicate that they are clogged. In turn, you will want to have the problem addressed immediately by a professional San Diego plumbing company. One way to check for roots in the drain is by running a sewer camera, and a couple of signs that this could be an issue are that your drains are emptying slowly or not at all, and also that they are making odd noises, such as gurgling. A high quality plumber will be able to address these issues safely and in a timely manner.

What David says about us

Service for new garbage disposal. My ancient garbage disposal quit working, went online to get Bill Howe’s number, immediately received and accepted chat to describe my needs. Prompt call back to schedule an appointment, service tech Allen was out same morning, which was important to fit my work schedule. Job estimate was clear, work done fully to my expectations, area left clean, and price was very fair.
I was not surprised — I have used Bill Howe plumbers for several other tasks in the past. I have always found their staff to be helpful, attentive, and the plumbers very courteous and capable.

What Mira says about us

Bill Howe never fails us! We had a drain overflow, and Scott came (on a Saturday) to look at it and offer solution. He was punctual, professional, and extremely helpful. I should also praise the main office for always being helpful and always finding solutions. Very grateful to have you in San Diego!

What Ed Gohlich says about us

Cory was our technician on this job. We had a time sensitive repair issue and Bill Howe understood and assisted with getting the job done quickly.
Cory was on time to start the job and finished it quickly. Upon his leaving our home he’s was courteous, very knowledgeable, explaining what the problem was and how he fixed it. Very good communication and this is the way it’s has always been when we use Bill Howe plumbing.
Great company to work with.
Thanks Cory.

What Bridgett says about us

I am extremely happy with the service we received from Bill Howe Plumbing. We were given an incorrect diagnosis of our main sewer line from another vendor, but Bill Howe’s servicemen came out for a second opinion, correctly diagnosed our problem and resolved our back up issues. We will continue to use Bill Howe for all our future plumbing needs!

Thank you Bill Howe Plumbing.
