If you own or manage real estate in New England than it is incredibly important to have sewer system video inspections done on a regular basis. In essence, it is the only way to know for sure that your sewer pipes are in good working order. You certainly do not want to find out the hard way that there is an issue brewing within your sewer pipes. In fact, you may not notice that anything is wrong until it is too late. As you probably are well aware, repairs to your sewer system can be incredibly expensive and time consuming.

The water system in the entire building may need to be shut down during the repair work. That can cripple a business. It’s also incredibly inconvenient to your tenants if you have any. This holds especially true if you own residential apartment units. Imagine telling your tenants that they can’t use the water in their apartment for the next week. All heck will let loose. The good news is that smart property owners use sewer system video inspections as a preventative maintenance tool.

If the technician happens to see something wrong with the sewer pipes or sewer system repairs can be made immediately before it becomes a large problem that will negatively impact you. That is why we highly suggest having a sewer system video inspection performed on a yearly basis. You should schedule them even more frequently if the property is over 50 years old and the sewer pipes are original. So, how do sewer system video inspections work? A small video camera that is attached to the end of a long cable is inserted into the sewer system.

As the camera moves through the pipes it broadcasts the footage back to the technician in real time. The technician views the broadcast on his or her laptop computer, tablet, or smartphone. The broadcast is in high definition, so the technician can see even the smallest blockages, cracks or issues within the sewer pipes. The camera is also recording the footage for future use. For example, the sewer system video inspections camera may discover a small issue that doesn’t need to be fixed right away.

If the technician comes back in six (6) months he or she will compare the footage to the last video. If the damage hasn’t increased, you may be in the clear for a while. However, if the damage has gotten worse you may need to take care of it at that point. The bottom line is that sewage system video inspections are like having a set of eyes in the sewer system and sewer pipes.
