Don't Wait Until It's Too Late for a Sewer Inspection

The sewer is the largest drain in your home. If there is an issue with the sewer, it can quickly manifest itself into other problems, such as drain clogs within your home, or worse.

How a Sewer Inspection Works

In order to diagnose and correct the problem before it becomes any worse, plumbers can conduct a sewer line inspection using a fiber optic video camera. This will allow the plumber to see what is happening inside of your sewer pipes so that they can accurately diagnose the problem and provide an effective solution. This process includes the following:

  1. The specialized camera captures real-time images of the pipe so that your plumber knows the exact location and nature of the issue at hand.
  2. Your plumber offers an assessment of any problems based on the camera results and above-ground conditions. They can also advise you on the overall condition of your piping and how much longer it will last.
  3. You can inspect the results of the camera inspection so that you can see the condition of your drains for yourself.
  4. You will come to an agreement on which services are right for your needs and budget.
  5. Your plumber can complete the necessary repair or replacement services in a timely, cost-effective manner.

What Makes Camera Inspections Different?

A camera inspection is a more precise, accurate, and sanitary way of inspecting your pipes. Snaking or “rooting” alone cannot provide the same results as a video camera inspection. Video inspections remove all of the guesswork because the cause of the problem is displayed on the screen in front of you.

Sewer problems can be costly and time consuming, not to mention frustrating. It is important to schedule a sewer inspection and have your septic tanks pumped at least every three to five years to ensure that your chosen plumbers can repair a small problem before it becomes worse over time. Make sure to choose a skilled professional who can break through the clog and remove any and all roots that may have infiltrated your pipe’s walls.

Moving Into a New Home?

Sewer inspections are also recommended for new homebuyers. This will supply them with the information they need before purchasing a new home. Sewer issues can cost thousands of dollars to correct, which is why it is crucial for homeowners to know about a problem before they decide to purchase the home.
