Tree Root Issues


Tree roots are the bane of any drain or water line system and have always presented a problem with underground plumbing. Busting through buried pipes, tree roots have actually been the cause of thousands of miles of damaged pipes and drains all throughout Toronto and the rest of Canada.

Drain 1 handles this issue with expert care, and is experienced in removing roots and effectively repairing the damage they leave behind. Understanding the differing types of pipe and drain materials, including vulnerable clay pipes, we engineer a plan to remove roots and replace cracked piping while striving to ensure that your tree’s roots are less likely to invade your replacement pipes again. Highly rated and proven to be impervious to tree roots, the use of PVC SDR drain lines allows us to guarantee our workmanship while ensuring your complete satisfaction.

Because the exact location, root size, and level of proliferation are practically impossible to determine without video drain inspection, the removal of tree roots as a DIY project is not recommended. Chemical solutions can damage drain linings and are not as effective as advertised. Furthermore, an auger in the hands of an amateur can be a messy and dangerous undertaking.

Leave the rooting and snaking of tree roots to the professionals at Drain 1. We offer free estimates, same day service, and a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee. Contact us now to discover the difference between us and our competitors.
