Sewer camera inspections provide a quick and exact way of determining the current conditions of sewer pipes. A sewer camera is a waterproof device that can be easily inserted into the pipeline, allowing an inside view along the entire length in question. There are multiple times when scheduling a sewer camera inspection is highly recommended.
When you are buying a new residential or business property, always schedule a sewer camera inspection. This is not something the standard building inspection appointment will include. Just as being aware of any structural flaws learned from the building inspection will give you power during your price negotiations, knowing the current condition of the sewer pipes will provide you with additional bargaining control.
Sewer camera inspections should be performed when you are planning a kitchen or bathroom remodel in your current home. Before any additional waste or water flow is added to the workload of your current pipes, it is good to know of any clogs building up, any small cracks, or any corrosion that needs to be repaired first, or reevaluated during future preventative maintenance inspections.
Your home and or business property should be on a preventative maintenance schedule. It is the most cost-effective way to maintain your sewer pipelines and prevent damaging future surprises. Are the building’s pipes in good condition? Can the life of your current pipe be extended by simply clearing out a clog somewhere along its length? Has a tree root broken its way through, requiring a high-pressure flush and an inlaid pipe sleeve? Or, are the pipes old, worn or broken enough that replacing the entire pipeline would be beneficial? A sewer camera inspection can answer all of these questions and provide you with peace of mind knowing that the best conclusion has been reached.
Once the current status of the building’s pipeline is determined from the sewer camera inspection, the technician can then recommend a future maintenance examination schedule.
