If you own or manage a commercial or industrial property, it is incredibly important to maintain that real estate in the appropriate manner. That being stated, a great deal of property managers tend to overlook the yearly video pipe sewer inspection. The sewer system tends to be one of those things that is out of sight and out of mind. Sewer pipes are typically buried underground or encased within ceilings, floors, and walls. However, the sewer system simply should not be ignored. In essence, it is the heart of soul of your building. Think about it this way.
What would happen if the sewer system were out of operation? If you manage a production facility, production could very well come to a complete halt. If you manage an apartment building, you would have some very unhappy residents on your hands. If you manage an office building, or building that houses retail companies, they will be out of operation until the sewer system is repaired and working correctly. The bottom line is that if you are unaware of what is going on with the sewer system, a major disaster can literally strike at any time.
The good news is that appropriately maintaining it can be as simple as scheduling a yearly video pipe sewer inspection. The process is simple, yet incredibly effective. A technician will install a small high definition video camera into the sewer pipes through an existing access point. The video camera is attached to a flexible cable. The flexible cable is feed through the pipes. As the video camera is moving its way through the sewer pipes, it is recording the footage, and broadcasting the footage back to the technician in real time.
The technician is able to view the live feed on a portable electronic device such as a laptop, tablet, or even a smartphone. The high definition images are crystal clear, which provides the technician with the ability to see if there are any issues within the pipe. For example, the yearly video pipe sewer inspection may discover that there are clogs within the pipes, or that there is cracks and or breaks within the sewer system. If there are any problems, the sewer pipe inspection not only discovers the issues, but also precisely locates them.
That way, the problems can be fixed immediately if need be. Often times, the sewer pipe inspection will uncover small issues that do not need to be repaired immediately. Those small issues can be tracked from one year to another as future sewer inspections are performed until the point that a repair is required. At the end of the process, you will be handed a copy of the video inspection for your records.
