Sewer Camera Inspection
Sewer backups can cause thousands of dollars in property damage and hours of inconvenience for property owners. And while some insurance policies do cover cleanup and restoration, it’s rare for them to pay to replace and repair the sewer line or damaged property.
Sewer camera inspection is a fundamental part of keeping your property’s sewer line working properly and effectively. A sewer camera inspection can help both residential and commercial property owners in Northern Michigan maintain their sewer line and identify issues before they become a bigger problem.
What Is a Sewer Camera Inspection?
During a sewer camera inspection, a trained technician will insert a waterproof camera into the sewer cleanout and maneuver it throughout the entire length of the pipeline until it reaches the city sanitary main. Throughout the process, the technician will monitor the high-definition video feed and take note of potential issues in the pipe, such as leaks, cracks, breaks, blockages and root infestation.
We rely on proper sewer camera inspections to pinpoint the exact location of any flaws or trouble spots. A sewer camera is such a valuable tool because it can even identify things that don’t present a current problem but have the potential to develop into something much more severe.
Sewer video inspections often mean the difference between wasting lots of time and money on guesswork and being able to immediately assess the situation and suggest the best course of action.
Why Get a Sewer Camera Inspection?
A sewer camera inspection is critical to keeping sewer lines in peak condition. Sewer camera inspections are particularly valuable for preventing sewer backups before they occur. Problems that can cause a backup event are root intrusions and clogged, blocked, cracked or broken sewer pipes.
Though a small crack or blockage may not seem like a big deal, these issues can quickly develop into a huge problem – and cost you a lot of time and money trying to diagnose or repair them.
Sewer Camera Inspections When Purchasing Property
Did you know regular home inspections do not assess the condition of sewer or septic lines? Having a sewer or septic line inspection before purchasing a property is a proactive approach to make an educated buying decision, a budget for maintenance needs or gain leverage on negotiating a better purchase price.
The Cost of a Sewer Camera Inspection
It’s important to always think of preventive measures such as a sewer inspection as an investment. Discovering and fixing a minor issue could help keep it from developing into a much more expensive repair. Compared with the major costs associated with fully repairing or replacing a sewer line, the relatively small fee associated with a thorough video sewer inspection can help save you thousands of dollars.
