‘Your home’s sewer pipes are built to handle some pretty nasty stuff, but they are no match for tree roots! Over time, sewer pipes can crack or joints can separate causing entry points for aggressive roots looking for a water source. When this happens, you can call to have your line mechanically cleaned by The Sewer Doctors. Good idea! However, utilizing mechanical removal of roots as an ongoing tree root maintenance solution can be expensive, hard on your pipes and encourages more aggressive root growth. There’s a better way! By utilizing an annual RootX maintenance regimen you will save money and be able to use your home’s facilities with confidence.
Things to think about:
- Tree roots will start to regrow with a few weeks of cutting during a line cleaning potentially causing a repeat root blockage without a RootX application
- Cutting alone encourages and stimulates new growth like pruning a tree and the roots can come back thicker and stronger causing even more damage and problems.
- RootX is non-systemic so it will not harm the tree or plant.
- RootX is non-caustic so it will not damage the pipe.
- RootX foams on contact with water to kill the roots at the top and sides of the pipe where the majority of roots enter.
- RootX is EPA registered and has a low environmental impact.
Who Uses The Sewer Doctors?
The sewer line can be one of the MOST expensive repairs on a home and there’s no way to know the condition of a sewer line without sending a specialized sewer camera into the line to inspect. Many homeowners believe that, just because they’ve never seen evidence of a sewer back up, that their sewer line is in good condition, but that’s like someone assuming they have no heart problems, just because they’ve never had a heart attack. Specialized tests are the only way to truly assess the health of your body or your sewer. Home buyers are becoming more and more aware of the need for a thorough sewerscope inspection and those considering selling their home should have a pre-inspection sewerscope done so they can be prepared and take proactive steps to make their home as appealing and easy to sell as possible.
Real Estate Agents
Many agents ask us if we do repair work and the answer is yes, we absolutely do have the expertise and knowledge to provide sewer repair when it’s needed. While our competitors would want you to believe this is a negative and that the only way to remain unbiased is to not have the ability or expertise to do a sewer repair, our versatility and broad knowledge base are one of the things agents love most about The Sewer Doctors.
Buyer’s need an inspection? You can count on our inspection to be thoroughly unbiased as we do not give estimates or do repair work on properties we have inspected.

Investors and Remodelers
Our investors use our sewer inspection services or line location services to help them get the best return on their investment. There’s nothing worse than tearing up a newly completed floor to repair an undiscovered break in a sewer line that could have been found before the remodel was complete.
The time and manpower saved by having a sewer line located properly before starting to dig pays huge dividends for our remodelers and other sewer repair companies that don’t have the time or equipment to do a line locate before digging.
Sometimes sewer lines just don’t work like they’re supposed to. Sometimes you find out about it in a subtle way like when you notice a drain isn’t emptying as quickly as it used to or maybe you find out in a more direct way, like having a sudden and messy sewer back up. Either way, you’ll need a professional to take a look to see how serious the problem is, but calling the right company can be the difference between a solution and more problems for you. When you call The Sewer Doctors we guarantee there will be no upselling or inflating of problems. You can count on a truthful evaluation and recommendation that is focused on what’s best for you, not just our bottom line.
