Reasons for a Sewer Line Inspection
Homeowners choose to schedule Lancaster sewer camera inspection for a number of reasons. In most cases, the technology is used to detect a problem in a sewer line. You may have a clogged, damaged, or corroded sewer line when you notice sewage backing up into the drains, slow drains throughout the house, a sewage odor, wet spots in the yard when it hasn’t rained, or drains clogged in different areas of your home.
You may want to schedule a camera inspection when:
- Buying a home
- Planning a remodel
- Adding a bathroom
- You notice signs of a problem
- Taking a proactive approach to home maintenance
If you have an older home or you are planning to add a bathroom to your older home, you may want to schedule an inspection of your sewer line. In a remodel, you want to make sure your existing line can meet the increased demand. Owners of older homes may decide to have the sewer line inspected to make sure it is in good condition or address any problems before the line fails and allows sewage to back inside the house.
How Sewer Camera Inspection Works
The sewer camera is a small camera that is attached to a fiber optic video line that can fit down the drain and into the pipe. The camera can move down the drain, through the branch lines, and into the main sewer line that leads from your house to the street. The flexible cable can be easily navigated throughout the drain system to locate the exact spot where a pipe is leaking, clogged, or damaged.
Sewer video cameras can identify problems such as:
- Tree root intrusion
- Separated lateral joints
- Leaking pipe joints
- Bellied drain lines
- Deteriorated or corroded pipes
- Cracked lines
The camera sends a signal in real time to our technician. This allows us to view the inside of your sewer line to assess its overall condition and locate any clogs, tree root intrusion, or other damage without digging up the line.
