Sewer System Video Inspections Are a Must

Did you know that sewer system video inspections are a must if you own commercial, industrial, and or residential property in New England? How else can you know exactly what is going on inside your sewer pipes? Back in the good old days, when there was a sewer system related problem, there was only one way to locate exactly where that problem was occurring within the sewer pipes. If the plumber thought that the issue within the sewer pipes was happening inside of the property, then the walls, ceilings and or floors within the general location of the problem needed to be demolished.

That caused a lot of damage and a ton of extra work. On the other hand, if the plumber thought the issue within the sewer pipes was happening outside of the property, then the ground where the sewer pipes were buried needed to be excavated.  That of course caused a ton of damage to the exterior landscaping. The bottom line is back in the old days, before sewer system video inspections were invented, it took a long time to locate the issue, and did a ton of damage to the inside and or outside of the property.

It also cost a significant amount of money to demolish and or excavate, and then repair the damage once the sewer system problem was fixed. However, we now live in a technologically advanced world. Although we can’t see inside walls, ceilings, and floors, or underground, we do have equipment that can. Sewer system video inspections save you from having to have your walls, ceilings and or floors destroyed if you’re having a problem that’s directly related to your sewer system. Sewer system video inspections also save you from having to get the ground excavated outside of your property.

Here’s how it works. A flexible cable with a tiny high-definition camera is inserted into the sewer system through a previously established access point. As the cable and camera are being fed into the sewer pipes, the video camera is recording the footage. It’s also broadcasting the footage back to the technician in real time. The technician can view it on a laptop, tablet, or smartphone. The sewer system video inspection equipment also has GPS, which records exactly where the problem is occurring inside of the sewer pipes. That way, the repair person can easily locate the issue, and fix it without having to do additional damage to your property.
