Mother Nature will Win
Roots will grow no matter what, so the key is to maintain healthy drainage systems because unhealthy pipes are far more vulnerable to failure. Keep the plumbing repair bills down to a minimum by having your system inspected at least once a year.
Have drains checked once a year and gutters twice a year. Sump pumps and closed system drains should be inspected at least once a year with video equipment. Check the drains on a schedule and your budget will stay on schedule.
Have a professional inspect the drain and piping system using modern and electronic equipment designed to see inside the piping systems. Think of it like an x-ray for your home. Seeing inside the drains and the pipes makes all the difference in the world to catch big problems before they turn in to enormous problems.
Regular washing or pressurized water treatment, known as jetting, is recommended service for proper system maintenance. As with all drainage and sewer projects, system cleaning should only be handled by professionals.
Clear debris twice a year from external drains. Backups and clogs occur over time as debris degrades. Keep it clean and less chance of failure will occur.
Regularly wash your homes internal drains with a disinfectant and hot water flush. And try not to dispose of any bulky items inside your drains, garbage disposal, or toilets.
