The Modern Sewer Line Inspection
Effective sewer line repair, like any repair, begins with identifying and locating the problem, which means sewer line inspection. Not so long ago, this meant digging up the sewer line and taking a look manually. Naturally, this meant extra time and labor and therefore added cost, and even then, an element of uncertainty could remain. Fortunately, those days are gone. If you need a sewer line home inspection or at your place of business in or near Westfield, IN, 24-7 Plumbing will provide a sewer line video inspection using state-of-the-art equipment.

WHAT ARE SEWER LINE CAMERA INSPECTIONS?
In a sewer line video inspection, the plumber feeds a small video camera at the end of a cable through the entire lengths of the sewer pipes in the walls and floor and outside the house. Because the camera sees everything, the plumber can be sure he’s identified the real problem and found exactly where it’s located. This ensures the work is done properly, and you shouldn’t have to seek help with the same problem recurring in a matter of weeks or months.
Sewer line camera inspections unerringly find all the following problems:
Hard materials clogging a sewer pipe. Hair or other material that goes down a toilet or drain but shouldn’t can in time produce a clog.
Damage produced by nature. It’s not uncommon for tree roots to intrude on sewer lines. Stone or mud can likewise enter through a crack in the line.
Damage produced by other work done on the property. This can happen if the city ran lines like gas lines underground or cut the road. It could also happen if you’ve had landscaping or contractor work done.
Damage and clogs from other sources. It may be hard to believe, but sometimes people put things in a sewer line that really shouldn’t be there. At various times, workers have found diapers, clothing, cell phones, dead animals, and other peculiar items.
ADDITIONAL BENEFITS OF CAMERA SEWER LINE INSPECTIONS
Minimal downtime. Sewer line video inspection results in faster sewer line repair. There’s less disruption to your home life, and businesses don’t have to bear the expenses of closing for extended periods of time and sending all the employees’ home.
No secondary damage. An old-fashioned sewage line inspection ran the risk of damaging trees, landscaping, irrigation systems, etc. as digging was underway. A sewer line video inspection won’t do that.
Maximum safety. Any work that involves servicing pipes that run through walls or underground involves at least a small element of risk. Sewer line camera inspections minimize the risk by identifying things that need to be cleared or removed to access a drainpipe or sewer line.
