Before we inform you when to schedule a sewer video inspection it’s important that you know what it actually is, and the particulars involved in the process. First and foremost, a sewer video inspection uses technology to see the condition of your sewer pipes. If there are any cracks or breaks within the pipeline, the video inspection will discover and pinpoint the exact location of the problem. If there are any blockages or major clogs within your sewer pipes, the sewer video inspection will detect that as well.
In addition, the process will uncover any future problems that are currently brewing or forming within your sewer pipes. For example, there may be microscopic cracks forming that will cause issues at some point down the road. In addition, debris may be building up on the inside of the pipe walls that will cause problems in the near or distant future. Here’s how a sewer video inspection works. A technician will insert a tiny high-definition camera, that’s attached to the end of a flexible cable, into the sewer pipes.
The technician doesn’t need to make any holes in order to insert the camera. They will use a drain cleanout or other previously established entry point. As the camera is fed through the sewer pipes it’s accomplishing two things. First, the camera is broadcasting the footage back to the technician in real time. The technician is viewing the footage on a laptop computer, tablet, or smartphone. Second, the camera is recoding the footage for future use. The sewer video inspection is so precise that even the tiniest issues are discovered.
If the issues don’t need to be fixed right away, you can track it with further inspections. So, that brings us to the question of the day. When should you schedule a sewer video inspection? It’s always a good idea to schedule an appointment with us on a yearly basis as part of your property maintenance program. Of course, if you’re experiencing any issues with the sewer system, you should schedule an appointment immediately. That way the problem can be found and fixed before it turns into something far worse.
If the inspection finds a minor issue that doesn’t need to be fixed immediately, you should schedule another inspection within 6 months give or take. That way we can keep our eyes on the issue and make sure that it’s not getting worse. The last thing you need to experience is a major issue with the sewer system that could have been avoided with a sewer video inspection.
