When it comes to sewer line inspection, we keep up on all of the latest technologies. Drain King Inc can help you find your sewer problem quickly! In the past, if you had a problem with your sewer, the cause was identified and corrected through a lot of expensive, messy, guesswork and large-scale yard excavation. There was no way to tell, with any certainty, where the sewer line failure occurred. So they would have to start cutting away sections of sewer pipe to pinpoint the trouble areas. Sometimes they made good guesses and the problem was easily fixed, and other times the yard became a nightmare of trenches, tracks and mounds of dirt unearthed leaving YOU to re-sod almost everything! This approach was both inefficient and costly.
Fortunately for today’s home or business owner, sewer disruptions are now much faster, easier, and less expensive to diagnose and correct. Our Drain King professionals utilize state-of-the-art equipment that allows us to locate and inspect sewer and drain lines without having to dig up your entire yard. We use high definition cameras to give us detailed information about the condition of sewer pipes and where the obstacle (or obstacles) are located. We can map the location and depth of your sewer line to prevent accidental damage when digging for landscape or construction purposes.
Here’s how sewer line inspection works: Our high-tech miniature cameras are mounted to the end of a fiber-optic cable, which is then pushed into a sewer line. The camera is controlled by acertified Drain King technician, who can change its speed, direction, and angle of inspection. A digital recording is made of the camera’s progression through the sewer pipes, which shows our expert what sort of impediment is interfering with the sewer line. (SIDE NOTE: We actually retrieved a diamond wedding ring for on of our clients!) We can detect whether roots have grown into the sewer line, identify a buildup of food or kitchen grease in the pipe, identify foreign objects that have been flushed down the toilet, and check for natural deterioration of sewer and water lines. The obstacle can be removed or the sewer line can be repaired at the exact spot it is impaired, without having to dig up large areas of your yard.
Our sewer line inspection services employ similar techniques with a transmitter and a hand-held receiver. We can push a transmitter through a sewer line as narrow as 1 1/2 inches, and locate it with an above-ground receiver. This gives us the exact depth and location of your sewer pipes, as well as the direction they run. Having this information is critical in the early planning stages of landscaping or remodeling. Without knowing exactly where your sewer pipes are located, you run the risk of unintentionally damaging them or unnecessarily tunneling through your yard to find them.
Whether you’re dealing with a sewer line emergency or planning a home renovation, let the experts at Drain King locate your sewer lines efficiently and accurately with our leading-edge Sewer Line Inspection services.
