Tree Root Removal Sydney

We know how to find and stop them

If you need tree roots removed from your pipes, Rapid Plumbing is the go-to!

As tree roots grow, they may come into contact with your underground pipes in search of water. Some are capable of penetrating into them and growing, causing blockages and damage. These roots are stubborn and very thirsty.

Blocked pipes caused by tree roots are difficult to detect without a deeper inspection, and need special equipment to clear. A professional plumber is what you need for tree root removal. We can also implement barriers or chemical treatments to prevent the incident from repeating.
