As a resident of Bayside Melbourne, you may be familiar with the common problem of tree roots causing blockages and damage to your plumbing system. Fortunately, there is a solution that has been used successfully for over 40 years – Vaporooter.

Vaporooter is a safe and effective way to prevent tree root damage to your pipes. As up to 80% of residential plumbing emergencies in Baysdie Melbourne are caused by tree roots blocking drains and sewer pipes, it’s a preventative measure that can save you a lot of time, money, and stress.

At Longbeach Plumbing, we are proud to offer Vaporooter as a solution to our customers. Our fully trained and certified technicians will apply Vaporooter to your pipes, which will stop tree roots from blocking them. It’s a simple and hassle-free solution that will give you complete peace of mind.

One of the most common questions we receive is whether Vaporooter is safe for trees and plants. The answer is yes – Vaporooter only kills tree roots, not the trees themselves. This makes it a safe solution for preventing damage to your plumbing system while preserving the natural beauty of your property.

At Longbeach Plumbing, we stand behind our services and products. That’s why we offer a 12-month guarantee with Vaporooter. If your drains experience a blockage caused by tree roots within 12 months of being treated with Vaporooter, we will clear the blockage for free (excluding collapsed or broken pipes).

If you’re unsure whether you have a blocked drain or pipe due to tree roots, there are some common symptoms to look for. These include slow draining or water buildup in your shower or bath, excessive rise or fall of the water level in your toilet, toilet paper remnants or dirty water around your sewer surcharge overflow gully, swarms of sewer flies around your drains, smelly drains, and waste water leaking from pipes around and under your home that don’t normally leak.

If you do have a blocked drain or pipe due to tree roots, you cannot apply Vaporooter immediately. The process involves clearing and surveying the blocked drain with a drain camera by a licensed Vaporooter applicator, cutting out the tree root blockage with a drain cleaning machine, and waiting 6-8 weeks for the roots to “relax” and re-shoot into the sewer line seeking moisture and nutrients. This is when Vaporooter can be applied to prevent further tree root ingress.

At Longbeach Plumbing, we understand the importance of protecting your plumbing system from tree root damage. That’s why we offer Vaporooter as a preventative measure. Don’t wait until you experience costly tree root damage – contact us today to schedule a Vaporooter treatment.
