Signs of a Root Problem
The signs that tree or shrub roots are growing into your lines are similar to a blockage. That’s because in most cases, the roots will either block the line partially, or they could cause a collapse of your pipes.
Signs you have a root issue include:
- Slow-moving water when it is trying to drain
- Water won’t drain at all
- Noises coming from the toilet or drain as you use it
- Water standing in puddles near the sewer area
- Overflowing toilets or sinks
- Odors coming from the lines itself
