Are you experiencing any sewage related issues at your commercial or industrial property? This question is easy to answer if you know the signs. Some are more obvious than others. For example, the most obvious sign that you are having an issue with your sewer system is when you or anyone else at the property can actually smell raw sewage and or sewage gas. It is a nasty odor that you will instantly recognize. Another tell tale sign of a sewage related problem is when puddles form around the property in areas where puddles do not normally form.

This holds especially true when the puddles appear even though it has not rained for multiple days on end. These sewage puddles will also smell like raw sewage, mainly because they are raw sewage. There are other less obvious signs. For example, if the toilets are not flushing properly it could mean that there is a simple clog in the drain. It could also mean that you are experiencing a major sewage related issue. The same holds true for the sink drains and shower/tub drains.

If they are not draining properly, it could mean you have a small problem on your hands, meaning there is an easy to fix clog in the drain. On the other hand, it could be a sign that your sewage system is not working properly. If you notice any of these signs, it is incredibly important to schedule a video pipe sewer inspection ASAP. Otherwise you are taking the unnecessary risk of having a complete sewer system meltdown. In essence, a complete sewer system meltdown means that the system completely backs up.

That means dangerous raw sewage can enter into your property through the toilets, sink drains, shower/tub drains, and other areas of the drainage system. There is not a property owner or property manager on the planet that would want to deal with that mess. The good news is that a sewage related catastrophe can be avoided by scheduling a video pipe sewer inspection as soon as you notice any problems. It is also a good idea to schedule a video pipe sewer inspection on a regular basis as part of your standard property maintenance schedule.

The process is fairly simple. A technician will insert a tiny waterproof video camera into your sewer system through a previously established access point. The camera is attached to a flexible line that is fed through the plumbing pipes. As the line is being fed through the system, the camera records the condition of the pipes in high definition. The technician is able to view the footage in real time on any portable electronic device. The footage is also recorded for future reference.

The technician is able to see exactly what is going on within the sewage system. That means he or she can easily detect any problems within the pipeline. If there are any issues, the technician will pinpoint and record the exact location of the problem. That way, the situation can be fixed immediately if need be, or in the future, if it is not an emergency situation.
