“A picture’s worth a thousand words”
A picture, or a video, is worth a thousand words. That’s very true when comes to your home or property’s main drain line, or sewer line. Today sewer lines are easily inspectable using a sewer video camera inspection device. A sewer video inspection camera is exactly that. It’s a video camera that is inserted into a property’s sewer via a clean-out or prepared opening. The camera head is sent “downstream” and relays a clear reception back to the video monitor. At the video monitor the plumber and the customer can see, and make an assessment of the sewer line's condition. A locator head can also be part of the video assessment. These heads relay the precise above ground location, via a transmitted signal, of any problem areas. A thorough and professional inspection can help your plumber and you make the correct decision regarding your sewer line. If it’s determined that the sewer line is in need of replacement, a trenchless application may work best. See our October 2011 blog regarding trenchless sewer line replacements.
