Root infestation and subsequent blocked drains are a common problem on drains near to planted areas. Roots infiltrate drains either through defective pipe joints or cracks, fractures and holes in the pipework.
If the pipework is not badly damaged, roots can often be removed using specialist root cutting equipment or high pressure water jetting using a specialist root cutting jet head.
If the root infestation is extensive and damage to the pipework is great, the appropriate solution to this would be to line the drain or carry out an excavation and install new pipework. Here at John Wall Drainage Service our Engineers can advise on the correct action needed.
