The question of the month is why do you need sewer system video inspections. The answer is that there are a lot of reasons. First and foremost, if you’re having any problems with the drains at your property than a sewer video inspection can get to the root of the issue. How do you know if you’re having any problems with the drains at your property? If the toilets don’t flush correctly even after you’ve plunged them a thousand times it could mean that something is brewing within the sewer system. Another sign of sewer related issue is if you or anyone else starts to notice puddles forming in the basement or exterior of the property.

The same holds true if you or anyone else at the property begins to smell sewer gas and or raw sewage. The bottom line here is that you need a sewer system video inspection immediately. The procedure will not only discover the exact issue, but also pinpoint the exact area within the sewer pipes that the problem is occurring. That way, the repair company doesn’t need to rip apart your ceiling, walls, and or floors in order to locate the area where the work needs to be done. When sewer pipe related emergencies happen, a sewer system video inspection saves you lot of time and money.

At this point, you may be wondering how it works. A highly trained technician will insert a tiny high-definition video camera into your sewer system. The camera is attached to a long, flexible cable. As the cable is fed through the pipes the video camera is both recording the footage and broadcasting it back to the technician. The technician can view the live feed on a laptop computer or Internet enabled hand held device like a tablet or smartphone. The recording can be utilized at a later time. The images are crystal clear.

The technician can see the exact condition on the interior of the sewer pipes. They will see any blocks, cracks, or breaks within the pipeline. The camera also records the exact spots where the issues are located using a GPS system. You certainly don’t need to be experiencing a sewer related issue in order to schedule a sewer video inspection. Many property owners do this as part of their standard maintenance plan. That way they know exactly what is going on within the sewer pipes. If any major issues are detected, they can be taken care of immediately in order to avoid the sewer system from breaking down.

If minor or small issues are found, the technician will advise you whether to have them repaired immediately or if you should wait a while. If they believe you can wait a bit, it’s important to schedule a follow up sewer system video inspection in the near future.
