When you experience blocked drains on your premises, it can be very inconveniencing. The drain can overflow which causes a big mess on your property, and a foul smell usually comes from the drain which makes the place uncomfortable to be in.
There are many reasons why drains can block including the presence of foreign items, hair, grease and an accumulation of leaves and hair in the drains. Roots of trees are also a cause of blocked drains as they are normally attracted to moisture. The roots crack the drainage pipes to get to the water and end up causing an obstruction. One of the most effective ways of safely getting rid of roots in drainage pipes is by the use of Leak Detection & Repair Services Levittown
Vaporooter is a chemical made up of dichlobenil and metam sodium which safely gets rid of the roots in the sewage pipes without causing harm to the environment. The metam sodium is absorbed into the roots of the trees and destroys them on contact. However, the vegetation above the ground that is not in contact with the metam sodium is not harmed.
Dichlobenil on the other hand inhibits the growth of roots. It attaches itself to the cracks, walls and joints of the pipes to ensure that roots can no longer crack, crush or block your drainage pipes for many years to come.
Vaporooter should be applied in your premises by a plumber who is a licensed applicator. The plumber will first have to insert a drain camera into your drains in order to see the insides of the pipes. He will identify the location where the roots have caused a blockage and will also check the condition of the pipes. He will then use a drain cleaning device like a jetter or an electric eel to cut the roots that are causing an obstruction in the drains.
When the tree roots are cut, they remove a sap which helps to heal the wound caused by the cut. This sap will therefore not allow the tree to take up the vaporooter. The plumber will therefore have wait for about six to eight weeks before coming back to carry out the vaporooter treatment. During this time, the tree roots which were cut are able to heal and shoot once more into the sewer pipes searching for moisture.
