Find Sewer Pipe Problems With Sewer System Video Inspections

Are you having an issue with the sewer system or sewer pipes at a property that you own or manage? If so, you can find sewer pipe problems with sewer system video inspections. The good news is that it is a virtually non-invasive process that does not require any demolition or excavation. In the old days, before the invention of video technology, the only way to figure out what the problem was and where the issue was located was to demolish the walls, floors, and ceilings on the interior of the property.

In conjunction, the only way to discover problems with the sewer pipes that are located outside and underground was to excavate large areas of the yard or grounds. That meant you were in for a big mess inside and outside of your commercial or industrial building or your residential home. In the current day and age, locating the problem and figuring out exactly what’s wrong with the sewer pipes is as simple as scheduling a sewer system video inspection. At this point you’re probably curious as to what sewer system video inspections are, and how they work.

The process starts when the technician shows up at your property at the scheduled time. He or she will insert a flexible cable into the sewer system through an access point that already exists. A drain cleanout would be a good example of a pre-existing access point. Attached to the end of the flexible cable is a tiny waterproof video camera. As the flexible cable is snaked through the sewer system it both records the footage from inside the pipes and broadcasts the footage back to the technician in high definition.

The technician can view the footage in real time on a laptop computer or an  Internet capable handheld device such as a tablet or smartphone. The flexible cable and camera setup also has a built-in tracking device. That way, when the technician sees any problems within the sewer pipes, even the smallest ones, he or she can pinpoint the exact location. That makes it possible for whoever is fixing the issue to avoid a massive amount of demolition and excavation. In essence, only the exact area where the repair must be performed needs to be exposed. Sewer system video inspections are so precise that even the smallest cracks and or clogs in the sewer pipes can be detected.
