Top Signs You Need a Sewer Line Video Inspection
Dealing with sewer line problems is a challenge since most sewer lines lie buried, so it’s not easy to diagnose where in the pipe the problem is. So, if you know you have a plumbing issue but don’t know where it is, a sewer camera inspection can help. Here are the top signs where a video inspection of your sewer line is warranted.
If you have a persistent foul odor coming from your drains or lingering around the outside of your house, it’s a good indication that you have a sewer line problem, which can be quickly diagnosed with a camera inspection.
Besides being a major inconvenience, slow drains throughout the house signal a larger problem deep in your sewer line. Also, be aware of a persistent gurgling sound coming from your drains or the sound of running water when you’re not using any.
Sudden Increase in Water Bills
If your water usage habits haven’t changed but you find that your water bills are spiking, it usually means that you have a leak somewhere in your plumbing system that you can’t see. Undetected water leaks not only cost you money in wasted water, but they can lead to significant damage if left unrepaired.
Mold & Water Damage
If you notice an increase in mold growth or see signs of water damage, it sometimes indicates issues within your main sewer or water line, which is where a sewer camera inspection is necessary.
Overly Green Patches of Grass
A tell-tale sign that you have a leak in a main sewer line is if you notice overly lush or water logged patches in your yard. When an underground pipe leaks, the water usually has nowhere to go but up, and since sewage acts as a natural fertilizer, you wind up with areas of your yard that are greener than others.
If you suspect that you have an issue in your sewer line, contact us and let our trained experts perform a camera inspection to get to the bottom of the issue quickly.
How Sewer Drain Video Inspection Works
There are many issues that can cause your drains to fail, but sometimes, it’s a challenge to find where in your system the problem is, especially if it lies in pipes buried underground.
Before advancements in technology, plumbing contractors had to dig up sections of the drain line to find out where the problem was, which is expensive and destructive to your property. Today, however, contractors have video camera technology that’s a quicker and less intrusive option.
Here’s how it works:
A plumbing technician inserts a sewer camera into the sewer pipe. This camera is small, but able to send out a live feed to a monitor through a fiber optic cable, which allows the plumber to see in real time precisely what condition the pipe is in.
Once the plumber has run the camera through the length of the pipe, they will have a better understanding of where the problem is and which method is best to fix it.
Sewer camera inspections are perfect for finding a number of issues within your plumbing system including:
- Blockages and obstructions
- Collapsed water lines
- Tree root infiltration
- Slipped pipes
- Offset joints
- Weakened joints
If you find a caked-in clog in your sewer line, our hydro-jetting can power it away quickly and safely.
