Owning your dream house or any property is considered as one of your greatest achievements. However, that achievement comes with a huge responsibility too. Aside from paying annual property tax and keeping the aesthetics of your house exemplary, most property owners fail to factor in the importance of keeping their plumbing systems’ health. Especially for first time property owners, the plumbing system probably is the very last thing that would come into their minds when we talk about maintenance.
See, the plumbing system is your home’s central unit. How is that even true? When you have a well-maintained plumbing system, it helps keep your home safe, clean, healthy, and happy. However, this central unit is usually hiding behind your walls, underground, or somewhere that you cannot easily reach or see. Fortunately, our trusty plumbers offer solutions on how we can see our plumbing system’s insides through sewer pipe camera inspection.
Have you never heard of this before? Well, fret not! Here, we will discuss the Benefits of Sewer Line Camera Inspections and why you should try this soon!
First, Let’s Talk About How Sewer Line Camera Inspection Works!
Do you remember when your dad or mom calls for a plumber when something is not right about your drains or pipes? Then the plumber comes to your house and starts digging your lawn or which part of your home is affected; just diagnose the issue with your sewer line? Yes we know that it sounds like a lot of work, well it is a lot of work, but identifying the problem of your pipe is that tedious in the past.
Now, thanks to the advanced technology we are enjoying, the plumbing industry has never been better! Majority of the plumbing companies that we have right now used modern technology, particularly video inspection, to see what’s going on underground without digging your lovely lawn!
But how do they do it? Simple! Plumbers use an intrusive CCTV camera and insert that camera into the primary sewer line of your home. This camera connects to a portable monitor where plumbers can monitor your sewer’s insides as the camera goes through the entire plumbing line. Now, don’t expect a picture-perfect sight, okay? But the good thing about this is that you get to see a real-time view of your home’s central unit. Once the diagnosis is complete, then you can now get your pipe relining done. This alone makes the inspection quick and easy and it’s non-invasive, which is the first benefit of getting Sewer Line Camera Inspection.
Why Get a Sewer Line Camera Inspection?
Forget about digging your lawn, pal! Sewer line cameras allow plumbers to get a good look at what’s going on with your pipes without tearing up your lawn or beautiful garden.
- No post-inspection mess
Unlike old-school inspection, where plumbers dig your garden to inspect your pipe and leave you a lot of mess, you can sit stress-free this time! No more post-inspection mess as again, no need to dig! The plumber will only need a small entry point where the camera goes in, leaving zero traces of unwanted trench.
- Get the right diagnosis for the right fix
Wrong plumbing diagnoses do happen, and homeowners end up paying for a repair that does not address their problem! I know it’s probably one of the most terrible experiences, and we do not want that to happen, right? Sewer Camera Inspection allows the plumber to identify which are among the many possible reasons you have blocked drains or leaking pipes. Each problem has a unique fix for it, and camera inspection can help identify the problem and get the job done faster!
- Insurance purpose
Do you know what they are? In every claim, there should be proof. And camera inspection can make it easier for you when you need to explain to your insurance provider what happened and why did you end up getting a plumber to check your plumbing system for you. Yes, you’ll have your copy provided by the plumber.
- Saves you more money
Since this method makes the inspection faster and cheaper than bringing in the big digger tools, a camera inspection can also help detect early signs of potential plumbing problems that will eventually become prominent later on. By identifying these issues on the onset and dealing with those issues quickly, you can save those hard-earned bucks by avoiding major repairs later on.
So, if you have never tried this before or never tried checking your plumbing system’s condition, it’s about time to get your sewer line camera inspection now!
