Tree Roots in Pipes Brisbane

Vaporoot: the Professional Solution for Tree Roots in Pipes

The suburbs of Brisbane are famous for their beautiful, tree-lined streets and abundant jacarandas. While this does contribute to the remarkable beauty of the city, it can have a detrimental effect on the drainage systems of your home or business. Large trees often have quite large root systems below the ground and these are known to cause considerable damage to underground drainage networks. Frequently, the damage will be significant and costly, before you even realise it’s occurring. To address these issues, you need a specialist Brisbane plumber that you can trust. Here at Yarrow Plumbing, we have over 30 years of industry experience in the Brisbane area and we are familiar with the many problems that are unique to the region. Our vast experience dealing with tree roots has afforded us a number of valuable insights into what is most effective. If you’ve begun searching the web for terms like, ‘Tree Roots in Pipes’, ‘Tree Roots Blocking Drains’, ‘Tree Roots in Sewer’, or even ‘Sewer Foam’, then the answer could be a Vaporoot treatment by the team at Yarrow Plumbing .

Of all the treatments that are available, we stand behind Vaporoot treatments as being one of the most effective. Vaporoot is a treatment method that effectively stops tree roots from expanding and damaging your sewerage systems and most importantly, it does not affect the health of the tree itself. Vaporoot treatments essentially involve a herbicidal foam being pumped into your sewer pipes. The drain is prepared for this foam with a high-pressure jet-rodding machine, which cleans the inside of the pipe and targets any existing tree root growth. The Vaporoot sewer foam is then applied to prevent growth in the future. At Yarrow Plumbing, we are conscious of our effect on the environment, which is why we use Vaporoot treatments. These treatments do not affect the growth of the tree above ground – it only targets roots that are damaging the sewer pipes. Additionally, we do not use Vaporoot in storm water drains, as it is mostly unsuitable for these applications.
