Root Intrusion in the Sewer Line.

Sewer lines for older residential and some commercial buildings in Rhode Island and Massachusetts is typically of cast iron inside the foundation and clay pipe, outside of the foundation. The cast iron usually transitions to clay 3 – 5 feet in the direction of the city sewer after leaving the foundation of the building. It is at this transition where the probability of root intrusion begins if roots are in the area outside the pipe.

Roots find their way into a sewer line through broken or unsealed joints, cracks in the pipe or transition points between two dissimilar materials, which are often difficult to create a perfect seal at the point of transition.

In the following You Tube video, you will see the vitrified clay pipe broken and off-set in many places. It appears the pipe has been cleaned via hydro-jetting. However, the viewer will still be able to see the roots as they have been cut, growing into the pipe. This video is a perfect illustration for what a broken pipe with off-sets and entry points for roots looks like.

Roots in the sewer line do not always appear this bad. However, what the viewer is able to see here, is how solid the blockage is by not allowing the camera to pass. Restriction stops air flow while also creating a damning effect to which the sewage has to rise above.
