Root Cutting

Tree roots ingress into underground pipe-work in a search for water, as the roots grow into the drainage system the host pipe can become cracked and in extreme cases collapse, the problematic roots can usually be removed with High-Pressure Water Jetting Equipment or cutting tools.

In order to restore free flow to the sewer, where damage has occurred we can install a new one-piece drain liner which will also rectify any structural defects and prevent re-growth. Root cutting and removal from within the pipe can save a lot of mess, digging and time.
