Cutting-Edge Video Sewer Inspection in Denver
How Often Should You Have Your Sewer Line Inspected?
Every appliance in your home that produces wastewater depends on your sewer line to remove it from your home. Meanwhile, many things can cause sewer back-ups, such as tree roots, damaged pipes, grease buildup, or even soil movement creating a low spot in a pipe.
The trouble is that because your sewer pipes are tucked underground and out of sight, it can be difficult to know there is a problem until it is too late. That’s why it is a good idea to have your sewer line inspected every 18-24 months—or as soon as you notice persistent warning signs. Just remember what to look out for, and don’t hesitate to call our Denver sewer line inspection technicians for the help you need ASAP.
Common signs you need a sewer line inspection include:
- Raw sewage backing up into your drain, toilet, or bathtub
- Repeated clogs or multiple clogged drains
- Consistently slow drains
- Frequent sewer odors
- Gurgling sounds coming from your pipes
- Visible water pooling around a floor drain in the basement
- Water backing up in a shower or bathtub drain when washing clothes or dishes
Effective Video Camera Inspections for Your Sewer Lines
Identify and Correct a Number of Problems in Your Sewer or Waterline
Root intrusion occurs when tree or shrub roots become drawn to the moisture in your sewer system, and start to grow around or inside the line. As the wastewater acts as a fertilizer for the root, your sewer line will eventually become blocked, leading to leaks and back-ups. Watch out for damp, green spots in your yard, a persistent sewage smell around your property, an uptick of pests in your home, and slow drains, as these are all signs you need a video inspection to assess your sewer line for root intrusion.
If your sewer line is leaking at the joints, you may not only notice moisture around your exterior property, but wet spots and cracks throughout your home/basement, an increase in your water bill, a nasty sewage odor around your house, as well as possible mold/mildew growth. Call right away for a sewer inspection as soon as you spot any of these signs, and avoid potentially paying thousands to clean up a dangerous sewage spill.
Broken, Cracked or Collapsed Lines
Your lines may become broken or collapsed due to root intrusion, excessive sediment, blockages, or general wear and tear. If you found yourself with clogs, back-ups, or lush spots all over your lawn, call for sewer inspection, since these are all signs you have a collapsed line on your hands.
Foreign Objects Blocking Lines
When everything from toys to rodents to toiletries go down your drains, they can lead to major blockages in your sewer lines. Call High 5 Plumbing to identify these blockages with a video inspection, and remember, don’t flush anything down your toilet but regular toilet paper (and that includes so-called “flushable wipes,” which can easily end up stuck together, forming clogs in your sewer system.)
Broken Offset Pipe Connections
With your underground pipes, it may be easier for offset connections to break, leading to leaking wastewater and severe property damage. A sewer inspection can pinpoint this problem.
Sags or “Bellies” in Lines
Sewer line “bellies” are low areas that collect excess debris and cause blockages and back-ups. The best way to identify these sewer line sags are with a comprehensive video inspection.
