Home inspectors are skilled at discovering wood rot or locating cracks in foundations. Even the most experienced inspectors can’t tell you about the problems that lurk behind walls, between floor boards or inside sewer lines.
The purpose of a home inspection is to find material defects that might have an adverse effect on the value of the home or its safety. This is done through a visual inspection by an expert to the best of their ability. This will ensure human error because humans can’t be perfect. We excel at certain things and struggle at others but we will never reach perfection.
When it comes to sewer inspection you are in luck because a human works with technology ensuring almost guaranteed effectiveness. Video cameras have become one of the most valuable tools in the plumbing business. Specially made fiber optics cameras allow for a visual inspection of underground sewer lines and other piping to determine the condition of the inside of the pipe. This takes the guesswork and the error out of something as important as your home.
A flexible rod with a high-resolution color video camera on its tip is inserted into the pipe for inspection. Video images are transmitted to the camera operator and can be saved onto a videotape for permanent record. Radio transmitters on the camera record the depth and physical location from the surface so that defects and obstructions can be corrected cost effectively.
Benefits of a Drain Inspection
The right diagnosis for your sewer line blockage: when it comes to repairing your sewer line one size does not fit all. Finding and identifying the culprit with precision allows the plumber to use the right solution the first time.
The right fix right away: Many plumbers who don’t use a sewer line camera try a basic cable clearing and hope for the best. Rather than finding the specifics, they attempt a basic repair after guessing what and where the problem is. Some plumbing companies attempt the same sewer line repair multiple times- all while collecting multiple checks.
Know how to prevent further blockages: If the sewer line blockage was caused by your habits you know what steps to take to prevent that in the future. Knowledge is power. Sometimes changing a habit can keep you from experiencing a backup and expensing a full trenchless sewer repair.
Evidence can be seen: If you have to spend your hard earned money on anything you want proof that you’re not spending it in vain. Seeing the image of the block is a way for you to understand what’s going on behind closed doors.
