Trees may be one of the most important parts of your property, but they can cause problems quickly when intruding into your sewer pipes. This type of damage can be tricky to diagnose since it is out of site underground, and can become serious in an instant if it’s not dealt with properly. Snowbridge Inc. has extensive experience with underground repairs, especially when it comes to tree root invasion and rooter services in Colorado and the Rockies area. Our technology and skilled staff will solve your tree root problem quickly, and with minimal disturbance to your property.
What are Tree Root Intrusions?
Tree roots grow at a fast rate, putting any aging or cracked sewer lines at risk. In most cases, the tree root will penetrate small holes or cracks in your sewer line and begin to grow, expanding the holes they’ve created. Similar to a block caused by debris, tree root intrusions get in the way of your sewer system’s ability to function properly. To make matters worse, the moisture that is released from the initial intrusion will attract even more roots to the area, causing more growth and damage. Fortunately, Snowbridge Inc. know signs to look for and how to solve an invasion at any stage.
Common tree root symptoms in Colorado plumbing
Signs that you have a root invasion in your pipelines range from hardly noticeable to unavoidable. The goal is to catch the intrusion before it becomes out of hand and more difficult to manage. Common warning signs of a clog include:
- Consistent clogs in your toilet, bathtub, or sink
- Consistent toilet backups
- Gurgling sounds
- Slow draining water
If you have a major intrusion problem, you may be experiencing one or a few of the following symptoms:
- Low available water
- Significantly lower water pressure
- Whistling or banging sounds from pipes
- Significantly higher water bills
- Puddles of water or sewage in your yard
- Gross smells in your yard or basement
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s a good idea to get a professional to take a look. We will diagnose your problem quickly and find a solution that is in your best interest.

Diagnosis with a plumbing inspection
First, will send a certified technician out to your property who will pinpoint the exact location and type of intrusion you are experiencing using a live video camera we insert into your pipelines. Once we know exactly what is going on, we can provide an educated solution.
While every root problem is unique, in most cases we start by cleaning the pipes and getting rid of the blockage. This can usually be accomplished using hydro jetting or pipe bursting technology. Once the area is cleaned and cleared, our Snowbridge technicians will often recommend sewer lining. This process is where a tube saturated in resin is inserted into your pipeline, inflated, dried, and removed. This leaves you with a new, strong lining that can last up to fifty years.
