Jim Bennett’s Plumbing does more than just drain cleaning for your Tallahassee Home or Business. We can also repair or replace water and sewer lines to correct a number of problems, including:
Broken, cracked pipes — damaged pipes due to shifting soil, frozen ground, settling, etc.
Root infiltration — tree or shrub roots have invaded the sewer line, preventing normal cleaning and/or have damaged the line.
Corrosion — the pipe has deteriorated and/or broken, causing collapses in the line and restricting flow.
Leaking joints — the seals between pipes have broken, allowing water to escape into the area surrounding the pipe.
Sometimes, when a tree encroaches on your plumbing, there’s little you can do about the tree itself – especially if it’s your neighbor’s tree. Tree roots can infiltrate your sewer line and break your pipes. However, there is a way to solve the problem and save your sewer line. Use a root barrier. A root barrier made of plastic will prevent a nearby tree root from damaging your sewer line. The root barrier will also keep the tree root from lifting up the sidewalk or destroying a retaining wall.
