Tree Roots in Sewer Line
Menifee, Ca. An entire neighborhood of trees planted right on top of the sewer trench.
The developer didn’t glue the pipes together, so once the roots find the sewer line, they take over! I love trees, and plant them any chance I get. But if they are in your sewer line, you have little choice. Kill the tree, dig up the pipe, and glue the joints properly. Or? Suffer from sewer backups that spill into your house and black water bacteria in your walkways, floors walls and carpets. What a mess!
