sewer problem location accuracy

Locating sewer drain problems is not for the faint of heart. Especially when traversing through a well kept landscape.  You need more than just a sewer camera with a location device attached.  You need 3 things.  First the locating equipment.  Second, a trained expert to interpret the located problem.  Finally, you need trained experts to excavate and make the repair with pinpoint accuracey.  Thus, saving the beautiful landscape.  Like we were never there.!

Sewer Line Clean-Outs

A sewer cleanout is a capped pipe that rises vertically from the sewer main line to an exposed location on the property,  usually outside.  The clean-out provides access to the main sewer line.  The access allows for inspection or clearing of the line.  And inspection can be performed visually, or with a sewer camera machine that relays a video picture of the sewer line condition (see blog of 7/11/12).  If a clog exists, the cleanout allows access for a drain cleaning machine, also called an auger.  The auger sends a cable with a cutting blade down the line to cut away root intrusion, or other debris.  

Sewer clean-outs are the responsibility of the property owner.  Property owner’s, or tenants should be educated on the location of the clean-outs.  When a blockage occurs, quick access to the clean-out can be critical to relieving the back-up, and preventing property damage caused by an interior overflow. If your home or property does not have a clean-out, or if you’re unsure, call MapleService to have one located or installed.  Think ahead, and prevent an unpleasant flood.
