As the snow begins to thaw out in a month or so, you may find yourself with an unexpected sewer problem. Before modern technology, you would have to take an educated guess as to where you would start digging. Now, all you have to do is call a plumbing company, such as A-1 Sewer & Septic Services Inc., to schedule a video inspection. Without any digging or tearing up of your lawn, the blockage or problem can be easily discovered!
When Is a Video Inspection Worthwhile?
A sewer video inspection involves running a video line through the pipes in your home to the main sewer line that lets you see the entire sewer system in close-up detail. A professional will insert the video line and can diagnose the problem you may be facing based on their observations of the video. This is beneficial if you find yourself with an unexpected sewer problem or if you are seeking to remodel your home and are wondering if the increased water needs can be handled by the existing sewer system in place or if reinforcements must be brought in.
Some of the common problems that can be revealed using a video inspection are:
- Low areas that collect water and solid waste
- Sections where the piping separates from one another
- Tree roots entering the pipeline and causing damage
- The complete collapse of the pipe
- Debris and other items get caught in the line
Even knowing what sewer problems may arise in the future can be extremely beneficial, as you can take the necessary steps to prevent pipe blockages and most importantly, the expensive and time-consuming need for total sewer line replacement.
