Sewer Camera Inspection
Since the sewer pipe is often buried by several feet of dirt and pavement, it’s difficult to even diagnose what the problem is without a major excavation. Fortunately, one of the increasing popular plumber services available is sewer inspection by camera, which allows technicians to discover and diagnose problems in your sewer pipe without having to dig it up first.
Sewer video cameras allow us to get a first hand view of what is causing a blocked or slow draining sewer main line. Fiber optic cameras allow for a visual inspection of underground sewer lines and other piping to determine the pipes condition. A flexible rod with a high-resolution color video camera on its tip is inserted into the pipe for inspection. Video images are transmitted to the camera operator and can be saved for a permanent record. Radio transmitters on the camera record the depth and physical location from the surface so that defects and obstructions can be corrected cost effectively.
Triple S Plumbing Inc. recommends a camera sewer line inspection if you’ve experienced repeated backups in your sewer line. Camera inspections can go a long way in identifying all types of pipe problems commonly found in your home or business. One of the more common issues is that a root mass has obstructed flow in your sewer system. If a sewer pipe is damaged, a section is misaligned or it has begun to collapse due to old age, a camera sewer line inspection will reveal the issue.
If you’re lucky, a clog in the sewer line is just a buildup of hair and household waste. Worse is an accumulated crystallization of soap and grease, but both of those problems can be addressed without tearing up the yard. The worst-case scenario is a break in the sewer line itself, perhaps from a tree root tearing into it and allowing dirt to cave in the passageway.
