Sewer lines are an essential component of any plumbing system, responsible for carrying wastewater away from a building and into the main sewer system. However, tree roots can cause significant damage to sewer lines, leading to blockages, clogs, and backups. If left unchecked, tree roots can lead to costly repairs and even a complete sewer line replacement. To prevent this from happening, many homeowners and business owners turn to products like Sanafoam Vaporooter to keep their sewer lines clear of tree roots. In this blog, we’ll explore how to keep your sewer clear of tree roots with Sanafoam Vaporooter using Longbeach Plumbing as a licensed applicator.

Step 1: Identify the problem

The first step in keeping your sewer clear of tree roots is to identify the problem. Signs of a tree root problem can include slow drains, gurgling noises, foul smells, and sewage backups. If you notice any of these symptoms, it’s important to call in a licensed plumber to inspect your sewer line.

Step 2: Hire a licensed applicator

Once you’ve identified a tree root problem in your sewer line, the next step is to hire a licensed applicator like Longbeach Plumbing to apply Sanafoam Vaporooter. Sanafoam Vaporooter is a powerful product that should only be applied by licensed professionals who have undergone specific training to use the product safely and effectively.

Longbeach Plumbing is a licensed plumbing contractor that has been serving the Bayside Melbournea for over 40 years. Their team of licensed and insured plumbers is highly experienced in using Sanafoam Vaporooter to keep sewer lines clear of tree roots.

Step 3: Inspect the sewer line

Before applying Sanafoam Vaporooter, Longbeach Plumbing will inspect your sewer line using a high-resolution camera. This allows them to identify any cracks, breaks, or other damage that may be contributing to the tree root problem. By identifying these issues, they can ensure that Sanafoam Vaporooter is applied to a clean and undamaged pipe.

Step 4: Clean the sewer line

Once any damage has been identified, Long Beach Plumbing will clean your sewer line using a high-pressure water jetting system. This removes any debris, buildup, or obstructions in the pipe, allowing the Sanafoam Vaporooter to be applied effectively.

Step 5: Apply Sanafoam Vaporooter

After the sewer line has been cleaned, Longbeach Plumbing will apply Sanafoam Vaporooter to the sewer line. The product is a foaming agent that is poured into the sewer line and left to work overnight. The foam fills the entire pipe, including any cracks or holes, creating a barrier that prevents tree roots from growing into the pipes.

Step 6: Wait for the product to work

After applying Sanafoam Vaporooter, it’s important to wait for the product to work. Longbeach Plumbing recommends leaving the product in the sewer line for at least six hours to ensure that it can work effectively. During this time, the product will kill any tree roots in the pipe and create a barrier that prevents them from growing back.

Step 7: Repeat the process

To ensure that your sewer line remains clear of tree roots, it’s important to repeat the Sanafoam Vaporooter process annually .
