Root intrusion can wreak havoc on pipelines and sewer systems and they’re one of the most destructive forces when it comes to maintaining a wastewater system.
American Underground, Inc.’s full range of root cutting equipment removes both light and heavy root growth along with the cutting of intruding connections. Our innovative, highly reliable and efficient cutters offer superior drive and thrust, resulting in unsurpassed results that satisfy our clients and meet all their needs. We offer superior high pressure root cutting as well as intruding lateral cutting, descaling and removal of hard scale deposits/encrustation, and grout and cement removal.
Does the job involve a difficult pipe that has drop joints and offsets? Not a problem! Different cutting attachments for different applications make our line of equipment flexible and versatile, allowing us to meet any sewer system and pipeline challenge.
Our chain retainer is driven by a high performance turbine that easily removes roots, grease and mineral deposits from 6” to 20” pipelines. For larger pipelines, extensions paired with the chain retainer wheel allow the cutter to expand up to 30″. We also have continuously adjustable skids from 6″-29″ that can be adjusted in 1/16″ increments if necessary.
Our trained technicians, using CCTV, can observe the entire process and confirm that any problem has been cleared and resolved. With the cutting of roots, water consumption is reduced and costs are saved.
