How can you tell if you have a tree root blockage in your pipes?

Poorly draining fixtures – sluggish drains, slow-flushing toilets, and other drain problems throughout the house are clear signs that you have a root invasion in your sewer line. Since the problem is far down the line, plunging the toilet or trying to clear the drain with an auger won’t help either, and if they do the effect will likely be short-lived.

Patches of green in the leach field – when roots block distribution pipes in the leach field, water may leak out and settle around it. This leads to a potentially hazardous situation for humans and pets, but ideal growing conditions for grass and flowers, which will quickly absorb those nutrients and become noticeably greener and healthier than the surrounding vegetation.

Spongy or soaked lawn – if the main sewer line is blocked, water will likely overflow and seep into the ground. Eventually, the ground will become soft and muddy, even forming little pools of untreated water. This may be especially noticeable after a big rainstorm.

Odors – most of the time, odors from septic water are absorbed by porous soil. If you can smell them, this usually means the pipe is backed up and leaking.
