Diagnosing Sewer Problems with a Video Inspection
It can be immensely frustrating to experience plumbing issues that seem to be caused by a sewer backup, but to be unable to locate the source of the blockage. Contacting the Edmonton plumbing contractors at AA Johnny's Sewer & Drain Cleaning Service Ltd for a sewer video inspection could finally help you get to the bottom of the problem.
How Does a Video Inspection Work?
During a video inspection, a professional plumbing contractor will insert a high-resolution camera attached to a strong but flexible rod into your home’s pipes. Because of its flexibility, the rod can travel through the various turns which the pipe makes. The length of the rod is typically between 100 and 200 feet, which should easily allow it to reach all the way to where your home’s pipes meet with the municipal sewer.
When Should You Get a Video Inspection?
Sewer video inspections are often recommended for homes that repeatedly experience clogged drains throughout the house. It can also be a good idea to schedule a video inspection before purchasing a new home, as sewer blockages may go undetected until you start living in the house.
The Benefits of a Video Inspection
The biggest benefit of choosing to get a sewer video inspection done in your home is that it is perhaps the fastest way of identifying all and any issues with your pipes. These problems may include but are certainly not limited to: grease buildup, debris obstructions, root intrusions, breaks, cracks, corrosion, or pipe misalignments.
Best of all, a video inspection is a safe and completely non-invasive way of identifying these issues. It doesn't involve cutting into drywalls or digging in the ground. Getting a video inspection done when you first start noticing significant plumbing issues can also help keep them from developing into even costlier ones.
Sewer Video Inspection from Experienced Edmonton Plumbing Contractors
A sewer video inspection is not something that a homeowner can do themselves, as the equipment needed is incredibly expensive and often only owned by Edmonton drain cleaning and plumbing companies. Plus, you want a trained eye to be looking at the screen and determining what the problem is.
If you notice that your drains have gotten a little sluggish lately, then it's time to contact AA Johnny's Sewer & Drain Cleaning Service Ltd and schedule a time for a qualified Edmonton plumber to come and perform a sewer video inspection.
