Drips-and-Drains Your Durbanville Plumber on why not to plant a tree near a water pipe
Burst Pipes, Plumbers
At Drips-and-Drains Your Durbanville Plumber I often come accross a situation as seen in the attached photograph where a tree has been planted right next to a water main pipe. This is not a very wise thing to do because it is only going to cause damage at some stage. It may take some time but most likely when you least expect it - it will damage the pipe. Most of the time my client only realizes that something is wrong when he notices the huge increase in his water account. And that is when we at Drips-and-Drains Durbanville Plumbers get the call on 084 758 6237.
With our high tech plumbing equipment most of the time it does not take us very long to locate the burst water pipe. But it is still a costly excersise for our clients, and especially for our environment. We cannot afford to waste our precious water. So please folks, plan ahead when doing both your plumbing and your planting.
