Sewer Line Video Inspection

Video Sewer Line Inspection throughout the Virginia Beach Area

My husband and I just bought this house a few months ago and boy were we surprised at all the crap that’s wrong with it.  Well one thing was that we have two water heaters.  I didn’t even realiz... More e we had two until my husband pointed it out.  We had no idea why we had two but one of them decided to leak when my husband was away so I decided to call American Mechanical since there are stickers all over the garage area and I figured that they would be familiar with the situation going on.  The person I dealt with on the phone was very professional and courteous.  I was surprised that they had availability that same day.  They also sent me a text with the description and picture of the plumber they were sending.  He arrived and I explained to him the situation and he went to work trying to troubleshoot the problem.  We finally figured out that the second water heater was for solar panels and that the previous owner had gotten rid of when they redid the roof in 2014 (or maybe they were off before then, I really do not know).  The technician said the second water heater was useless and capped off the extra lines running to it.  He was very professional and friendly.  I would use him again and I recommend him to everyone."

Video-Sewer-Line-Inspection-Service-Contractor-Virginia-Beach-VAThere are many factors that could have contributed to your sewer line clog. There could be an object or debris blocking the flow, or your pipes could be deteriorating from age. It’s important to provide an accurate diagnosis in order to carry out the best method of repair. A video sewer line inspection uses a closed circuit television camera on the end of a cable to inspect the inside of your pipes. This technique is so accurate that we can easily pinpoint the exact location of the blockage or damage. We can also use this technique to identify any developing damage.

What are the Benefits of Video Sewer Line Inspection?

Homeowners are often concerned that sewer line repairs will require huge areas of their yard to be dug up just to find a broken pipe or blocked area. With video pipe inspection, you won’t have to worry about this. Only a small access area is required for the entry point during repairs.

There are many benefits offered by video sewer line inspection. Here are examples of a few:

  • The exact location of the problem can be pinpointed as well as the cause
  • Time and money are saved by the homeowner and the plumbing company
  • Only the specific area over the actual problem needs to be dug up

A video inspection will help us determine the best solution to the problem. A high-pressure flush or an auger may remove the blockage, or more extensive repairs may be needed. In some cases, the pipes may need to be completely replaced.

What Causes Sewer Line Clogs?

Tree roots are the most common sewer line problem. They can penetrate concrete and PVC pipes, but older clay pipes are the easiest. Warm air in the pipes pushes out water vapor that attracts the tree roots. Once they find a tiny crack, they work their way in and can grow and eventually choke the normal water flow.

Foreign objects that should never be flushed down a toilet can also cause a blockage. Disposable diapers, small articles of clothing, wash cloths, baby wipes, and a huge amount of paper products can all become lodged in the pipe and create a blockage.

Broken pipes are another reason sewer lines get clogged. Old pipes may crack and break down or collapse. Improperly installed pipes may develop a loose connection between segments, allowing debris to enter the pipes. Extreme temperature changes, such as freeze and thaw cycles, can also affect the integrity of the pipe connections.

In some cases, the problem may be a backup in the city sewer lines and not connected to problems in your home at all. A video inspection is a cost effective way to determine this.
