Your landscaping could be hazardous to your plumbing system. Tree roots tend to grow towards water, especially when the landscape in a pace of a drought. When trees and shrubs can find water, they grow their roots towards moisture that has escaped from leaks, holes or poorly sealed joints in water and sewer lines. Tree roots and shrub roots attack these openings to absorb the nutrients and moisture inside the pipes. If not stopped, the trees and shrubs will completely fill the pipe with hair-like root masses. These root masses quickly become clogged with debris flowing from homes to the main sewer line, which will result in reduced flow and blocked drains. A complete blockage is possible if the roots are not eradicated. If the roots aren’t gotten rid of, waste water and sewage will back up into your home.
Not only can leaks cause root blockages in your plumbing system, but water leaks can cause foundation issues, smells, rodents, pests and termites. Did you know that water leaks are a number one cause of termite infestation? Because termites build their colonies around soil, your landscape could be the perfect home for termites if you have water leaks in your home.
Lowery uses Non-Pressurized Epoxy Lining or (CIPP) “cured in-place pipe restoration process” as an economical and efficient alternative to a traditional pipe system replacement. Our CIPP lining technology helps Lowery restore and renew an old and corroded pipes to a “better than new” condition without removing them. The liner installed on the pipes’ interior will seal and protect the system from further deterioration, and thus extending the life of your pipe system. The CIPP lining process can be used on all different types of piping materials, including clay, concrete, metal, iron steel, PVC and fiberglass.
Nu Flow’s Pull-in-Place structural liner process is a patented, safe technology that allows anyone occupying the structure to continue with their daily routines. This structural liner prevents temporary displacement and business closures while minimizing the time the pipe system is offline. This innovative, cured-in-place pipe (CIPP lining) system creates a long-term, structural pipe inside the existing pipe system without digging or destruction to the buildings or landscape. The pipe is rehabilitated to a new and improved condition with an increased flow rate while eliminating weakened joints and sealing cracks. The CIPP lining pipe system will even eradicate the chance of groundwater pollution.
