Lancaster, PA Sewer Camera Inspection
The proper functionality of our sewer system relies on having healthy, strong pipes to carry out our waste. Unless you’re experiencing noticeable problems, residents and owners can’t know what is happening inside their pipes. To get a close look at the pipes without directly accessing them, professionals are using technologies that are trenchless, eliminating the need to dig up the ground to get to the pipes. Pipeshark provides sewer camera inspections to deliver diagnoses or updates on the condition of those mysterious pipes are out of our sight.
What is a trenchless sewer camera inspection?
Trenchless sewer camera inspections are the use of a high-definition camera to view the inside of pipelines. The camera is attached to the end of a drain hose, which is flexible enough to be pushed through your pipe system from start to finish. The camera takes videos and photos for the technician to view both during and after the process for a thorough evaluation. This no-dig process is done through a pre-existing access point and is a trenchless solution. It can be used on sewer systems for homes and buildings.
What is the purpose of sewer camera inspections?
Some may wonder, “What is the purpose of seeing the inside of our pipes and how is this more effective than accessing the pipes directly?” Sewer camera inspections serve many purposes. Some of the main benefits include seeing the overall condition of the pipes, diagnosing problems, and checking for any issues so they can be fixed before they worsen.
Inspections can show the plumbers if your pipes are due for a cleaning. If they are, there are many different options, such as hydro jetting and drain snaking. Routine cleanings are important to the longevity of your pipes. For this reason, our inspections are useful for evaluating the amount of buildup that is on the pipes and suggest an estimate of how often you should get your pipes cleaned, which will prevent rusting and breakage.
If there are problems in your pipes, we are able to fix them and prevent them from becoming worse over time. If there is a crack in the pipes that is untreated, it can grow and lead to a leak or bursting pipe. If we find it early enough, it can be fixed and sealed, eliminating the issue before it’s even noticed. A minor fix in the early phases will help prevent a larger fix if untreated, such as a replacement of a full section of a pipe instead of a simple sealing the a crack. If pipes are in failing condition, we will be able to suggest a tentative time of when the pipes might need a full replacement and how long the current ones will hold up. This will help families and business owners plan for the replacement costs and not have the pipes fail on them without notice, causing a major emergency situation.
