A Sewer Inspection Identifies Sewer Line Problems
A sewer inspection is necessary for the accurate detection of existing sewer line problems. An increasingly popular option for detecting sewer line problems is the use of a sewer video camera. The process of scoping a sewer line allows a trained technician to pinpoint problem areas within your sewer system. With this information, our technician can provide you with options for spot repairs, clean-out installations, or sewer line replacements, if needed. Additionally, he can also give your sewer line a clean inspection report for the sale of your property!
In addition to detecting sewer line blockages or foreign objects that are causing clogs, a sewer line video inspection can reveal cracks, corroded sections of pipe, root infiltration, weakened, leaking joints, and broken pipes. It also can see if there are offset pipes that have shifted due to frozen ground, settling, or landscaping.
Using these specially designed cameras, plumbing specialists are able to get a better understanding of what is causing your sewer line problems. Our high-resolution, color monitors allow you, the homeowner, to see the same image as the plumber; therefore, he can explain the problem areas in real time. It makes the job of providing the best solutions for customers that much easier while avoiding costly sewer repairs you don’t actually need.
The Basic Process
- The camera is inserted into the sewer line through the cleanout
- A live feed is projected from inside the sewer line to the monitor
- The camera is inserted further down the line to a maximum of 200 feet.
- Problem areas are located using specialty equipment above ground
Causes and Prevention of Future Blockages
Blockages in sewer lines are messy and can be very costly to identify and repair. Common causes of damaged sewers are cracks or joint separation from root intrusion, age-related issues of cast or clay tile pipes, and collapsed pipes. Cameras give a clear picture of what is going on inside the sewer pipe and identify the area that needs repair. Finally, a camera inspection can pinpoint the type, location, and severity of the damage, so the technician can bid for only the repairs actually needed. Our technicians will give you options to best suit your needs and situation. We will never attempt to sell you a repair you don’t need!
