Are Sewer Line Inspections Important?

Believe it or not, sometimes, you might be completely unaware that your sewer requires a repair until it's too late. However, if you know the common signs of an ailing sewer line, then you might be curious to see if you do, indeed, have a problem on your hands.

If you’re not confident whether or not you should schedule a video camera inspection for your sewer line, here are some of the many benefits to consider when you do opt-in.

The Benefits of a Sewer Line Inspection

Indicates If Your Line Needs a Repair

Often, there’s one thing that lingers in the back of a homeowner’s mind when they notice the common signs associated with a broken sewer line: Will it need to be replaced? When this is the case, a professional video camera inspection will get to the root of the problem (literally) and unveil it once and for all.

Since technicians use a high-quality, live-feed video camera, they’ll be able to see every square inch of the line and can see if there are any discrepancies. For instance, if they stumble upon a break in the pipe, they’ll be able to closely examine it and craft the perfect solution to resolve it.

Unveils if There’s a Blockage

Now, if you luck out and your sewer line does not need to be repaired or replaced, a technician will be able to see if something is obstructing the flow of water in line with a camera. On average, there are a few things that can cause a blockage in a line, such as:

  • “Flushable” wipes

  • Feminine hygiene products

  • Paper towels

  • Diapers, and more

When your technician unveils the root of the issue, they will present you with a few different routes as to how they can remove the blockage and restore full-functionality to your sewer line.
