Did You Know about neighbours trees in your pipes

Did you know that the number of “over the fence” disputes between neighbours about tree roots in sewer pipes is multiplying?

Yep, as suburban trees mature they go in search of moisture and nutrients in neighbouring properties’ sewer pipes, so the root systems spread in every direction in their search for sustenance.

Many homeowners without a single tree on their property will have blocked sewer pipes caused by tree roots from their neighbours trees; sometimes 2 or more houses away.

Vaporooter is a cost effective way to stop your neighbour’s tree roots in your sewer pipes!

It can be quite frustrating when your neighbour has a beautiful big tree and its roots are growing under the fence between you and feasting in your sewer pipes.

Vaporooter is a simple and effective way to stop the growth of tree roots in drains and control this persistent problem; because the tree roots will grow back after you cut them. Its just what trees do!

If your neighbour’s trees are blocking your pipes, they may be blocking the sewer pipes of the other neighbours around you. Why not find out if they’re affected and together work on a simple and cost effective drain maintenance strategy like Vaporooter.

Did You Know Blocked sewer pipes blow the Council budget?

Did you know many blocked sewers are caused by the tree roots from Council street trees?

This is becoming a very big issue for many local councils. The council owned trees that make some of our more sought after suburban streets very special, are creating havoc underground by repeatedly blocking the sewer pipelines from many of the homes in those streets.

Councils are fighting a losing battle trying to bring the tree roots under control. The budgets of many local councils are strained as they just can’t keep up with the demand of their ratepayers to attend to their sewer blockages, caused by these street trees.

Vaporooter Kills Roots. Period!

Vaporooter stops tree roots in Council drains

Tree lined streets in big cities and country towns across Australia have many benefits, but there are also negatives.

Tree roots from street trees invade the council and water authorities mains, reducing the flow and block the sewer mains.

When it comes to blocked drains, Council manpower and budgets are stretched by tree root affected drain maintenance.

There is a safe alternative! Vaporooter Stops Tree Roots. Period!

Tree roots in sewer mains? Vaporooter kills roots. Period!

How much does Vaporooter cost?

By now you know that Vaporooter delivers results that are unmatched by any other method of tree root control in sewer pipes and you want to try it but one question remains.

How much does it cost?

So, with  your sewer service diagram and a good knowledge of your  property, measure the length of sewer pipeline from top to bottom, including the branch lines, and add up the metres.

Measure branch lines that run to all plumbing fixtures like your WCs, toilets, showers, baths, basins, kitchen sinks and laundry tubs.

Confirm the size of the pipeline. Most domestic pipelines are either 100mm (4″) or 150mm (6″). The sewer service diagram will help you establish the pipe size. Water authorities and councils have larger pipelines and may vary in cost

No matter where you are in Australia, you can call us on 1800 637 600  for a cost estimate.

 

Why do I need a Sewer Service Diagram?

A Sewer Service Diagram, drainage diagram or “helio” (for plumbers over 30 years old) is a map that shows where the sewer pipes run throughout your home, or commercial property.

This sewer drainage diagram is available from Sydney Water, the Water authority in your capital city, a reputable plumber’s supplier or your local Council, depending on where you are in Australia!

In NSW a sewer drainage diagram is a normal inclusion in a “Contract of Sale” for your home.

The sewer diagram shows a line diagram  of your property, including the boundaries of the property with the outline of the dwelling and associated buildings, with all plumbing or sanitary fixtures shown.

Whenever the sanitary or sewer drainage on a property is either modified or added to by a licensed plumber or drainer, the local water authority is booked to inspect the work and modify any existing drainage plans and upgrade the sewer diagrams of each individual property.

The sewer diagram will show if your sewer pipeline runs through other properties, if it is connected to a common sewer with multiple properties on the line and where your sewer line joins the Water Board or Municipal or Council sewer mains.

Be aware, some inner city suburbs like Paddington and Balmain have rows of terraces with up to 20 homes, and in some cases more, running through the one sewer line across the back or front of the properties.

Whenever you have a blockage in a joint or common service, it’s imperative that all parties on the common line realise that the problem is the responsibility of all parties on that common line.

That means the costs of any repairs or service  to this common line should be borne by all parties on the line!

A current drainage diagram will show who is connected to the common sewer line and who isn’t.

If you have a hint of a blocked drain and you need to stop tree roots in drains, have a sewer diagram within easy reach!

Costs of this diagram will vary, dependent on the source and may range between $16 and $60.00
