Keeping your sewer pipes healthy and functional should be a top priority for homeowners. Issues as small as leaks can easily turn into a larger and more expensive problem, so being preemptive is beneficial. Feltner’s Sewer and Drain Services now offers the Arlington Heights area a simple solution to find these problems before they even become one.
Why Are Sewer Line Camera Inspections Beneficial For Arlington Heights Homeowners?
Sewer line camera inspections are a modern and advanced method that can help diagnose internal pipe problems. It also helps find issues or potential problems that are beginning to form, which can give you time to find a repair solution and save money. Over time, sewer pipes will begin to weaken. Tree roots could invade and begin to crack the walls. Small leaks could spring just from an area becoming corroded.
These problems can be inevitable, so being ahead of them is detrimental to the health of your home. However, most of the problems can be difficult to diagnose without a visual of the pipe interior. Some symptoms, such as trickling water sounds, mold growth, or moist floors could point to a leak, but generally, an inspection is needed for this to be diagnosed.
How Our Pipeline Specialists Conduct Sewer Camera Inspections
To begin the inspection, a technician inserts a camera into an existing access point, like a toilet. Because these types of access points are used, the traditional method of digging up the pipe in order to find the problem isn’t required. This saves you a great deal of time and money, and rarely causes additional damage to your home as the traditional method would have caused.
The high definition camera is mounted on a waterproof cable. The cable to manually maneuvered by the technician so that the camera can have access to the different bends and areas of the sewer pipe. The video feed is available in real-time to the technician through a small screen.
This high-definition feed can help point out the general age of the pipe, which alerts the technician about problems that can arise with the lifespan. This also includes identifying corrosion and weak areas that could crack and spring small leaks. If these go undiagnosed, they could result in not only higher water bills, but in a burst pipe. This could flood your home, making it unlivable and expensive to repair.
Once the technician finds the problem or start of one, they can begin working on a solution. These can include trenchless repairs or replacements, depending on the severity. Sewer camera inspections are one of the many trenchless services offered by Feltner’s Sewer and Drain Services, and it is an easy way to stay up to date on the condition of your home. Within a short time, the technician can identify and alert you to a problem, but can also tell if the lifespan of your pipe is going to be a future issue.
