The Importance of Yearly Camera Inspections For Your Sewer Line

A yearly inspection of your sewer and pipeline system is essential because tree roots, and cracks can occur in your sewage system due to temperature changes and various other environmental conditions. These inspections can be performed easily with a high-tech video camera designed to inspect the line for any problems that currently exist, or issues that could damage the line in the future.

In just about every field of work, the availability of modern technology has made it easier and cheaper for the home and property owner to maintain their investment and its greatest value. Any new property buyer has the ability to look at the maintenance history and ensure that proper maintenance has been performed. That’s why you want to have an annual inspection done, to ensure you are getting the most value out of your property. When a prospective buyer wants to know how well the property has been maintained, the owner can show the preventative care they have completed. A well maintained property makes it more valuable.

Having a yearly camera inspection performed in your drain & sewer lines can help prevent major plumbing issues before they occur. There are many problems you can only easily identify with camera inspections, even if they’re not causing you problems yet. For example, you may discover that your pipelines are built using Terracotta. Terracotta is a porous, hardened clay, material that will freeze in the winter and expand in the summer. Many times this older, outdated, type of sewer pipe causes problems with cracking and leaking and will need to be repaired or replaced. However, you can’t tell what’s there until you’ve had your first inspection.

When you consider the yearly tasks necessary to keep up your pipes and plumbing, it’s a good idea to do this before winter comes, or early in the spring. Yearly video camera sewer line inspections should be a regular practice for your home or business, so that there won’t be any surprises once it gets warm.
