I have tree roots (ficus) in my sewer line. I have had a plumber come out and use his camera to determine this. He services the line every 6 months or so but I am looking for a more permanant solution. First I am removing the trees that are causing the invasion. I would like to know though if anyone knows if when i remove the trees and the roots subsequently die, will the root that is theoreticlly plugging the hole in my sewer line cause a leak in the sewer line? If so, how hard is it to have the plumber repair the sewer line? Please advise.
