Clay Pipe Repair
All pipes experience wear and tear over time, and tree roots are the nemesis of clay sewer and drain pipes. Because the joints in clay sewer pipes are rarely watertight, they are prone to infiltration by tree roots. Once roots have infiltrated the pipe, they will continue to grow in diameter. This creates or worsens gaps in the pipe joints. In severe cases, the roots will completely break the pipe apart or crush it. Even before the intrusion is significant enough to break the pipe entirely, the roots will still likely obstruct the flow of water and waste in the pipe causing the backups in showers, toilets, and other fixtures. We recommend contacting a plumber as soon as you suspect you have a problem with your pipes.
