How Technology Eased Up Sewer Inspections

There was a time when sewer inspection was an extremely dirty and tedious job. Thanks to technological advancements, however, sewer inspection has become quick, easy, and non-intrusive to your pipelines.
What It Is

Sewer inspection typically involves running a specialized video camera into plumbing fixtures like your bathtub or faucet, or through your home’s main sewer line that connects it to the municipal lines. The camera allows you and the inspectors to see in great detail almost everything that’s inside the pipes, and can give you a glimpse of the root of a problem, if there’s any.

What you can find

During an inspection, you will see the insides of your sewer system through the eyes of the camera as it moves down the sewer line through other obstructions. Unless a clog renders the camera completely unable to proceed, it might even be able to continue through to the municipal line.

Hire a Professional

Of course, you mustn’t perform a sewer inspection on your own. Professional sewer inspectors have the necessary skills, training, and equipment to make sure that the inspection and any subsequent repairs get done without a hitch.

Proper sewer repair and maintenance can help keep your home safe from the dangers of a failed plumbing system. Indeed, thanks to trusty sewer video cameras, you don’t have to practically dig out your entire backyard just to see what’s wrong.
