Certain leaks can and issues in your home’s plumbing system can be hard to diagnose. This is particularly true with the sewer line. The sewer line, which carries all the wastewater out and away from your property, is buried meters deep in the ground. It can be incredibly hard to access.
Your sewer line is important – if there are issues with it, you may have wastewater backup, drainage problems, puddles and sinkholes emerging on your property, and more. Thankfully, modern technology has provided an easy way to inspect sewer lines for potential issues: video inspections.
With a video sewer line inspection, a tiny, waterproof, hi-tech camera is put on a long line and pushed down your sewer pipe. This camera can produce clear, real-time footage of the inner workings of your sewer line.
There are many benefits to this modern inspection method:
There are several reasons someone might need a sewer line inspection. The most common is a toilet that will not flush or drain properly. If you have a bad drain that will not budge with traditional unclogging methods, it’s time to get a sewer line inspection.
Typically, sewer line issues will appear as clogged drains in the home (it can be one drain or multiple depending on the severity). Someone may also notice bubbling in their toilet bowl water.
Another common symptom is a foul, garbage-like odor radiating from around your toilet, sink, or bathtub drain. That signals the backflow of wastewater.
Additionally, those who are remodeling their kitchen or bathroom may request a sewer line inspection. Before making any decisions about new additions, homeowners need to understand what drainage levels their sewer system can handle. So, it’s always a good idea to get an inspection of the sewer line before planning the remodeling.
