Video inspection technology is the best and most cost effective way to inspect drains and sewers. If you already have a drainage problem or are just keen to avoid one in the future,sewer inspection is a quick and accurate way to get an instant, detailed look at the condition of your underground drains.
We use high definition, specialist camera systems and software to carry out a CCTV drains survey. These drain inspection cameras relay images to a mobile unit, so that a technician can assess the structural condition and integrity of the drain or sewer. And, there’s absolutely no disruption to your property or the environment — it’s simple. The technology isn’t simple though. In fact, it’s the world’s most sophisticated video equipment. Our camera units allow us to get the best results from any CCTV sewer inspection and the specialist software means that you see the results for yourself on DVD or and USB multimedia.
Very few property owners are aware that they are responsible for the sewer line from the property to the city main. Broken, flat, bellied, offset, or root-infested sewer lines can cause sewage to back up into the house leading to extensive property damage in the home. Tree roots growing into sewer lines is a common problem. Roots crawl into tiny openings and expand in the sewer line, latching on to other debris that typically cause backups such as grease or eggshell waste.
Sometimes chemicals can kill the trees roots but if the roots reappear, the pipe may be damaged and require excavation to fix the problem. Sewer back-ups can cause thousands of dollars in property damage. Although insurance companies will usually pay for cleanup and restoration; repair or replacement of the line is typically excluded, which can cost tens of thousands of dollars. Standard home inspections do not cover the structural integrity or condition of sewer or septic lines. Having a sewer or septic line inspection prior to purchasing a property is a proactive and innovative approach to make an educated buying decision, plan for upcoming maintenance, budget for necessary repairs, or gain valuable purchase price negotiation.
