One responsibility that homeowners should never neglect is regularly inspecting their sewer line. Your plumbing and drainage system is a crucial part of your home and requires regular inspections and maintenance to ensure its longevity and performance. Sewer lines can be very extensive, making it difficult to determine what areas need to be cleaned and repaired. This is where a video sewer line inspection comes in handy. The licensed plumbers at Gator Plumbing will look deep in your sewer line with a thorough video pipe inspection. Therefore, even at a distance, you can always assess the plumbing needs of your sewer line. Here are just a few benefits of contacting our team to perform a thorough inspection.

Locate Plumbing Leaks

Plumbing leaks within the sewer line can be difficult to locate, but when neglected, can result in costly damages. With a video inspection, our licensed plumbers will be able to locate the exact source of the leak within minutes. From there, we can perform the necessary repairs to save you money in the long run.

Assess The Condition Of Your Pipes

Just because you can’t see every aspect of your residential plumbing does not mean you should neglect to care for it. You don’t have to monitor the condition of your pipes often, but routine assessments, twice-yearly, can help identify a problem before it gets out of hand. When cleaning your sewer line, our team can determine whether there are cracks or holes and easily repair them while we are cleaning the system. Video inspections allow you to perform regular maintenance more effectively, reducing maintenance costs of all sizes, in a non-intrusive way.

Protects Your Yard

Sewer line bursts can be caused in multiple ways, but the only way a technician can diagnose the problem and recommend repairs is to perform one of two actions:

  • Create a large trench in your yard
  • Use a video camera to enter the sewer line

As a homeowner, you will probably prefer trenchless sewer repairs. In the past, the only way to resolve sewer line bursts was to dig up the entire lawn to find the source of the leak. Now, you have the option of using small cameras to locate cracks, holes, blockages, and other problems. This protects your lawn from unsightly damage that is often difficult to repair. Video inspections can protect your lawn by locating damages in the most remote areas of your pipes with little to no digging involved.

Less Time-Consuming

In addition to damaging your lawn, digging a trench in your backyard is a time-consuming solution. Not only does the project itself take long, but in some cases, it requires applying for a permit through the local government agency. A video camera cuts the middleman out and makes it easier for our technicians to complete their inspection without the need for a permit.

Good For Home Buyers And Sellers

If you are buying a new home, it is a good idea to know the condition of the pipes long before a costly emergency. This is especially beneficial if you are planning to buy an older home with potentially outdated plumbing. A video inspection can check for corrosion, collapsed pipes, severe blockages, and other unexpected damages for pipes of all sizes. If you are selling your home, it is a good idea to have an inspection for the buyer’s peace of mind, as potential homebuyers can carefully inspect the video recordings for signs of damage Even if you do not plan on selling your home, video inspections can be beneficial for documentation purposes.

Determine The Type Of Clog

There are many causes of a sewer line blockage. It can be the result of a broken sewer pipe, a buildup of hardened bathroom tissue, years of grease buildup, or tree roots that grew into the pipes. A video inspection will allow us to understand what we are dealing with and determine the most appropriate method to remove the clog.

As you can see, a variety of issues can develop in your plumbing and drainage system over time. You can significantly decrease the damage with our routine video inspections.
