Simply put, TV inspection works wonders when it comes to properly diagnosing repairing any home, business or municipal sewage system. Why? Well, it gives expertly trained technicians certainty when it comes to understanding the most comprehensive and cost-effective means for sewer rehabilitation. With this in mind, let’s look at 7 problems TV inspection can solve.

1.  Cracked And Broken Pipe:  Holes In Pipe

Probably the best way to think about TV inspection for your sewer is to make the analogy to a surgeon inserting a camera into a patient in order to gain certainty and to get pinpoint accuracy for both diagnosing and curing health problems. TV inspection is the exact same idea. Why is it important to know exactly what’s wrong with your pipes? Well, among other reasons, if you just have a local break or a hole, a trained professional can save you money by recommending trenchless spot repairs. Consider the cost of totally replacing your entire system as opposed to being able to access the break underneath the ground and perform exacting repairs that will return your sewer to like new condition. We can do this with any break or hole in any pipe, anywhere.

2.  Water Infiltration

Water infiltration is a word used to describe the ways that groundwater and  storm water enter into sewer systems.  Dedicated wastewater or sanitary sewers are created from pipes located in the street or on easements that are designed strictly to transport wastewater from sanitary fixtures inside your house or place of business.  Sanitary fixtures include toilets, sinks, bathtubs, showers and lavatories. Trained specialists can accurately diagnose water infiltration problems with the aid of TV inspection.

Roots In Sewer

3.  Root Infiltration And Blockages

Root infiltration is a rather common problem with sewer pipes and occurs because – you guessed it – a root finds its way inside your pipes. Roots are always seeking out nourishment. Unfortunately, they can feed pretty well on waste, so as they active seek out nutrients, they can exploit tiny fissures in your pipes. Inside, they continue to grow until they stress the pipe, causing it to break. TV inspection can identify this problem quickly.

4.  Grease Buildup In Pipe

This is a problem we see in a lot of restaurants. Grease build up can cause continual blockages and disrupt your operations.  An easy solution to this problem is a process called Hydro-Jetting, which cleans the grease out of the pipe and leaves you problem free.  If you own a restaurant, contact us! We can be and out quickly without ever causing you to close your doors.

5. Bellies In The Pipe

Bellies can be caused by any number of culprits: age, roots, wear and tear. Bellies hold water and debris, causing blockages and back-ups habitually.  Whatever the cause, a trained plumber can spot them right away with TV inspection.

6.  Dislocated Joint In The Pipe

Dislocated pipe joints can also happen due to a variety of reasons, but the problems can result in sudden unsanitary flooding. This is bad enough in your home, but if it happens in your business or for municipalities, it can be costly and stressful. TV inspection isn’t only a great tool for diagnosis, but it’s excellent for preventive maintenance. We recommend an annual plumbing inspection to keep property values high.

7.  Broken Lateral Connections    

Laterals are the pipes that run from your home to the sidewalk and, when things go wrong, they can really go wrong. That’s why it’s vital that you choose a plumber who knows how and when to use TV inspection and lateral lining to protect your landscaping and paved ways.
