Best Way to Remove Tree Root from Sewer Pipe
Tree roots are naturally drawn to your sewer line. This is because your sewer pipes contain various nutrients and water that are necessary for a tree’s survival! However, if you do not remove these roots from your sewer pipe, they could cause severe, costly damage to it.
To remove a tree root from your sewer pipe, you can try pouring sodium chloride into your toilet. Flush at least two pounds of sodium chloride into your pipes in this way, and then let the compound do its thing for at least 8 hours (ideally, more like 12 hours). By doing this at least once per month, you can effectively clear your pipes of tree roots.
