Greenwood Sewer Line Camera Inspections & Sewer Scopes
The removal of wastewater is critical to the health and safety of you and your family. The average Greenwood home produces large amounts of wastewater, including amounts produced by running the dishwasher, taking a shower, doing a load of laundry, and even simply brushing your teeth. Though these actions are all regular parts of a person’s routine, we often put little thought into how all that wastewater is dealt with.
Our ancestors would simply collect such water in buckets and chamber pots, tossing out the contents in nearby alleyways or yards. This was detrimental for a number of reasons. In addition to the unbearable foul odor, prolonged exposure to wastewater can result in the development of dangerous diseases, given the increased amounts of bacteria. Modern plumbing solves this problem by incorporating a sewer line into the system, safely siphoning away all of that wastewater into our sewers. That’s why it’s extremely important to verify that your sewer line is in good condition on a regular basis. Blockages, corrosion, and other forms of damage in your sewer line can cause serious backups that could lead to further damage to your home, in addition to jeopardizing your health and the health of your family.
Most Common Sewer Line Complications
The following problems are the most likely culprits when your sewer line isn’t performing as expected:
- Tree root damage to the pipes
- Clogs and blockages causing backups
- Pipe corrosion and cracks due to old age
- Large breaks caused by shifting ground or bad weather
- Poor installation leading to leaking joints
Scheduling Routine Sewer Line Inspections
While the plumbers at Plumb Doctor are prepared to perform any necessary repairs to your sewer line, the best way to address the issue, avoid damage, and lower your costs is to take preventative action. This can be done by scheduling an inspection of your sewer line the moment you notice anything unusual, as opposed to waiting until your yard is flooded with raw sewage. Our technicians are equipped with the technology to access the interior of your pipes in a minimally invasive manner, ensuring the least amount of disruption to your home. This is done by lowering a camera into your drains and down into the sewer line, while it transmits a live feed to the technician on the job. With the data from the video feed, they can then determine the severity of the issue and present you with the best course of action to resolve it.
The Advantages of Sewer Line Camera Inspections and Sewer Scopes
Sewer line repairs and replacements can quickly add up when it comes to expenses. The pipes are often placed underground and can be difficult to access, requiring professionals to dig up large amounts of your property in order to get a better look at the situation. At Plumb Doctor, we believe in making the process as painless and convenient for you as necessary. That’s why we offer camera inspections and scopes as an alternative. This provides us with the information we need to present you with an accurate diagnostic, no exploratory digging necessary. Not only can we determine if your concerns are valid and confirm whether the sewer line is in need of repairs, but we can also determine exactly where the issue is located, isolating the appropriate area and addressing it directly.
