How Root Destroyer Could Save Your Plumbing System

Drain Cleaning in Columbus, OHHaving plumbing in your home is a necessity. Having a gorgeous landscaping design helps your exterior look its very best. It's when the two combine that things go terribly wrong.

Tree and shrubbery growth may look great, but it can pose a threat to the underground elements of your plumbing system. The common misconception is that as long as this plant life is trimmed appropriately, it won't impact your plumbing. Yet, even normal growth can result in overgrown roots, roots that can cause severe damage to your pipes and plumbing.

Why Root Intrusion Happens

It's no different in Columbus than anywhere else, roots need water to grow. So, root systems naturally seek out and infiltrate water supplies, as a survival method. Unfortunately, sometimes that water supply happens to be located in your underground pipes.

How does root destroyer work? You simply flush the correct amount down your commode. From there, the solution finds its way into the underground plumbing and stunts growth.

The only roots that get killed are any that have already infiltrated the plumbing system, in an effort to gain access to water. Only those roots that have gained access to the pipes will be impacted.

The good news is that your trees and shrubs won't be effected, because the rest of the root system remains in tact. So, you can keep your stunning landscape elements and avoid the expense of removing a dead tree.

However, the even better news is that this should enable you to avoid bearing the expense of repairing or replacing your underground pipes. At the very least, this can help to minimize the damage.
