You may not realize it, but as a homeowner you are responsible for paying for repairs to the sewer lines running from your home to the street. In most cases those lines were put in place years ago when your home was originally built.
A sewer backup is a traumatic situation which sometimes causes property damage and at the least stinks up the house. A sewage backup does not mean that your pipes are broken. Call Budget Sewer to clean out your pipes and to inspect their condition. We will be able to give you a complete evaluation on the condition of your pipe.
Video Camera Inspections
Scheduling a camera inspection for your sewer will let you know the state of your sewer right away and help you avoid sewer repairs.
Hydrojetting Sewer Drain Cleaning
Short of replacing your pipes, hydro-jetting sewer drain cleaning is the most efficient way to clear pipes of blockages without damage to the surrounding area and infrastructure.
Before: Camera inspections reveal that the pipe has been penetrated by roots.
After: The newly installed liner is seamless, strong and root-free!
This is what clogged and dirty pipes look like.
Hydrojett pipe cleaning uses high velocity water pressure to literally blast away years of accumulated scale, silt, sand, and grease build-up on the inside walls of your pipes. Hydro-jetting has the power to burst open the toughest blockages and at the same time scours the full diameter of the pipe, flushing debris and leaving lines clear.
Sewer problems do not usually happen overnight. Most clogs and leaks start small and grow over time until they become big issues that need repair or even sewer line replacements. The best way to avoid large sewer problems is to have regular maintenance and inspections done to find issues and get them fixed before they do more damage. The best way to see what is going on inside your sewer lines is to have a sewer video inspection. Seattle home and business owners can call Budget Sewer to schedule their inspection as part of regular maintenance or to accurately diagnose an existing problem.
How Sewer Video Inspections Are Performed
Technology has positively affected almost all industries, including the sewer industry. In the past, property owners were not able to know what was happening below the surface in their sewer lines unless they were dug up and opened. The digital camera has made it possible for sewer technicians to see inside the sewer lines for the purposes of both preventing and identifying sewer problems.
To do a video inspection of your sewer, Budget Sewer technicians will snake a high-resolution digital camera into your sewer lines. This small camera records the video in full color, giving a detailed look at what is happening inside the lines. Both you and the technician can review the video to decide if any further repairs or maintenance is required. Budget Sewer even uploads these videos online so that their clients can review them at their leisure.
What a Sewer Video Inspection Can Find
Many home and business owners use video inspections as part of their regular sewer maintenance, keeping ahead of sewer problems that may arise. Having an annual inspection can reveal problems before there are backups and emergency repairs needed on a sewer system. Some common issues that can be found during a video inspection include:
- Tree root invasion. It is very common for tree roots to find their way into sewer lines. Not only can these roots clog pipes, they can begin to split and crack existing lines. Video inspections can detect these invasions and the property owner can often have their pipes cleared of the roots through hydrojetting before any further damage is done.
- Debris. Collections of debris can be found through video inspections. By doing regular inspections, a partial clog that has formed can be found and cleaned out before it fully blocks the pipe, causing sewer backups and other problems.
- Sewer pipe problems. Whether there are already signs of a problem or a video inspection is being done as a preventive measure, the camera can show any cracks, breaks or offsets that are in the pipes. This allows problems to be diagnosed quickly and reduces the risk of bigger problems down the road.
