How Sewer Camera Inspections Prevent Surprise Accidents

Nobody likes a surprise accident, especially not when it involves the sewer system flooding the basement or backing up into your home. One way to avoid these unexpected situations is with sewer camera inspections. At Rapid Plumber Corporate, we can save you the trouble of having to deal with a pipeline accident with our sewer camera inspection services.

It’s pretty simple, really. We roll up to your property and will locate the places in your yard where the pipe connections are under the ground. Once we can access the pipe connection we insert our video camera. The camera sends a closed-circuit video feed to one of our on site technicians to examine. Because the camera is so small, it can be moved up or down the length of the sewer pipe, giving us an up close and accurate view of the interior of the pipelines.

Through the high-quality footage recorded, we can identify any kind of problem developing inside the pipe, including leaks, cracks, clogs, and breaks. Once we can properly diagnose the situation, we remove the sewer camera and move on to trenchless pipe rehabilitation. The trenchless solutions vary depending on what needs to be fixed. If there is a clog or tree root creating a blockage, we will use our hydro jetting services to remove it. Conducted with a simple hose and nozzle, a high-pressure blast of water is sent through the pipes, removing debris and even cutting through tree roots.

If the problem identified from the sewer camera inspection is a leak or crack in the pipe, we can repair this with our pipe lining services. The lining is a pliable epoxy-coated sleeve that is inserted into the pipeline, and once it is in place, we send hot water through the system. The hot water causes a chemical reaction that cures the pipe in place. Within a few hours, the lining is hardened, creating a new pipe within the pipe by adhering to the diameter of the former of the pipe.

While our repair solutions greatly vary, it is through our sewer camera inspections that these innovative processes are even possible. Our sewer camera inspections help prevent any surprises by allowing you to be proactive about the care of your pipes.
