When was the last time you had a clogged drain at your facility? Do you remember how frustrating it was not to be able to see what was causing the issue with your own eyes? Clogged drains can be more than a simple annoyance. In essence it may very well be a sign that your sewer system is not working properly. This holds especially true if you start hearing gurgling sounds emanating from the toilets or one of the drains. If left untreated you may very well be facing something that nobody should ever have to deal with. If there is a blockage in the sewer system you are at risk of raw sewage backing up and entering into the building through the toilets and drains.

Although it can be fairly simple to figure out that there is a problem, actually identifying the specific cause of the issue is far more difficult for property owners and property managers. The good news is that there is a technologically advanced method to discover the matter so that it can be fixed before disaster strikes. The next time you have a clogged drain, contact a professional sewer video inspection company without delay. The process begins when the technician inserts a flexible cable with a high-resolution camera on its tip directly into the sewer system through a cleanout.

The video camera then transmits crystal clear video images back to the technician who views the video on either a hand held device or a television monitor. In addition, the radio transmitter on the video camera records both the depth and physical location of the problem from the surface. That way any blocks in the pipe, or defects such as sections of broken pipe, are easily pinpointed for repair. The process is typically repeated after the repair is made in order to ensure the property owner/manager that the issue was actually solved.

The most common issues discovered when utilizing the sewer video inspection method are typically blockages in the sewer pipes that are caused by grease and other buildup within the pipes such as hair.

Sewer video inspections also tend to uncover other problems within the sewer system such as corroded and broken pipes, and even the infiltration of tree roots into the pipes that are buried underground. Sewer video inspections save property owners and managers time in fixing the plumbing predicament.

When there is an issue in your sewage pipes it certainly does not pay to delay. The sooner the issue is discovered and repaired means you can get back to business as usual. Just think about how much it will cost the business if the building is out of commission for an hour or two. Now imagine if the facility is shut down for several days, or worse yet a week or more. How will that affect the bottom line of your organization? Most business owners and facilities managers do not realize that a sewage related problem can cost tens of thousands of dollars or more in lost productivity, let alone the costs due to delayed repair.

A sewer video inspection is a cost effect manner in which to discover any issues within your sewer system, hopefully before they become a larger issue. You simply cannot leave it to chance.
