It’s an invasion! Not by aliens. Not by another country. No, it’s an invasion by your trees. Yes, trees can invade, but instead of attacking you directly, they attack the pipes buried underneath your property. As your tree grows, the tree roots continually dig deeper and farther, and if those tree roots come into contact with the pipes taking water into or out of your home, then the tree root can actually dig into the pipe and expand within the pipe. Nature is wonderful, isn’t it?

As one can imagine, tree root invasion of your buried pipes is not a good thing. Since the pipe is cracked, there will be some water leakage. What does this mean for you? You can expect reduced water pressure, higher water bills due to wasted water, and some property damage as water will begin building up outside of the pipe. If the problem goes on long enough, the invaded pipe could sustain significant damage- leaving you with a massive mess and potentially even no water coming into your home. So, root invasion is a big deal and should be treated with seriousness.

So, it’s time to ask yourself, are you seeing anything unusual going on with the plumbing in your home? Since all of the action is happening underneath the ground where you can’t see, it can be difficult to detect a root invasion problem. So, if you are noticing that your water pressure is decreasing when you open the faucet or take a shower, then it’s time to look into the problem. Perhaps the most obvious way to detect a root invasion problem is to take a closer look at your property. Is there moisture in your front or backyard where there shouldn’t be or perhaps an area of the property that seems a little greener than it should be? These could be signs of a damaged pipe and a root invasion issue.
