Virginia Beach Sewer Line Inspection
Licensed Master Plumbers Serving You
There 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. At American Mechanical, we utilize video sewer line inspections, which use 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?
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.
Other problems that may be connected to your home can include:
- Overgrown tree roots
- Foreign objects that should not be flushed
- Broken pipes and old pipes
Regardless of the cause, our Virginia Beach plumbing experts have the technology and experience to locate the problem and effectively apply the correct solution for a long-term repair.
