Plant and Tree Roots Blocking your Drainage Pipes

It happens a lot more than you would think in Glasgow.  Plant and tree roots creep and tangle down drainage pipes in search of water – and when they find it – they want more.  More roots down your drain pipe means more clogging of your drain pipes until one day it becomes completely blocked with tangled roots, dead leaves, moss and all sorts of other biological, and the drainage water has nowhere to go.

 

If you have discovered a blocked drain in your garden and the cause of the blockage is plant and tree roots then call JSL Drainage. You don’t need a gardener and you don’t need a tree surgeon – you need an experienced drainage firm.  With a reliable drainage firm like JSL, we can unblock the drainage pipe without causing further damage to your drainage system and then cut back the roots and and plant matter that has been causing the obstacle before putting in place preventative measures to ensure it does not happen again.

Reliable Drainage Firm for blocked drains

The customer reported a smell in the garden. A CCTV inspection quickly showed the drain was blocked.

 

We cleared the blockage using a high pressure Jetter and checked the drain again. The drain inspection showed the drain had cleared but was blocked by a mass of roots. We located the roots using a radio sonde on the camera head and traced an access trap underneath the path
Once we had opened the trap by digging down to the lid, we were able to pull many of the roots out with a mechanical jaw.

 

Further checks with the CCTV camera showed more roots in the drain which we were able to cut out with a Warthog root cutting water jet nozzle.
