Could you even imagine living without the convenience of modern plumbing? Hopefully, you’d never have to—every time you use the toilet, take a shower, run your dishwasher or washing machine, or take a drink from the kitchen sink, you are relying on a fully functioning plumbing system. This system delivers the water you need throughout your household, and drains the waste and wastewater away.
Thinking about this—how much we are dependent on our plumbing systems—reminds us just how disruptive any problems with the system can really be. And one issue that impacts a lot more homeowners than you may realize is the damage that tree roots can cause to this system.
