Sewer Line Video Camera Inspection
When trouble arises in your sewer line, the very best way to locate and diagnose the problem is through a visual inspection of the inside of the pipe. This is made possible thanks to a small waterproof camera mounted to the end of a bendable rod. It can be inserted into the pipe and travel to where the issue is found. The camera is also equipped with sensitive location technology, so our service professionals can keep track of the camera’s precise location. This technology can also be used to inspect a newly installed or repaired pipe to help ensure that it will provide years of worry free service.
Pipe boring is a method of installing underground pipes without the need of digging a trench for the entire length of where the pipe will be placed. It is also an effective way to navigate under certain obstacles, like sidewalks, roads and even waterways.
First, a pilot hole is drilled using a drill head that can be steered along with the desired path with the assistance of sensitive location detection technology. Then, the path is widened to the appropriate diameter with the use of reaming tools. The cutaway earth is removed hydraulically. Finally, the replacement pipe is pulled along the newly created path and set in place, ready for connection. This method of new underground pipe installation is faster and requires fewer workers than traditional means, making it more cost-effective. Furthermore the risk of damaging other nearby underground utilities is also greatly reduced.
Septic Tank Repair and Maintenance
Your septic tank is designed to separate and retain solids from the wastewater coming from your home. These solids, in the form of scum and sludge, stay in the tank as the liquid waste is moved into the drainfield for percolation through the surrounding soil. The tank should be inspected and pumped out regularly to avoid overloading it with solids causing them to make their way into the drainfield, causing clogs, and eventually the system’s overall breakdown.
