TV Sewer Inspection
The symptoms are all there; recurring clogs, a foul odor and now there’s even sewage backup in the yard. You know it’s time to call a plumber, but you want to keep the costs as minimal as possible, so you decide to skip on the TV sewer inspection. You figure the experts will be able to tell by the symptoms and are happy with your decision; until a month later when the problem is now even worse.
Think about it this way, would you let a doctor operate without running tests first? You may have symptoms of a dizziness and chest pain, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you’ve had a heart attack. The same goes for your pipes. There are numerous causes for a clogged or cracked pipe, and uncovering the root of the problem will lead to a better- and more cost effective solution.
Common Causes for Pipe Problems
-Tree roots: Tree roots are the number one cause of clogged pipes, especially in older homes. Older pipes are easily crushed by tree roots, but small roots can even infiltrate into the joints of new pipes. Those small roots then grow and eventually clog the pipe entirely. If the tree root has caused severe damage to the pipes, you may need a new sewer lining. If it is small, our hydrojetting service will demolish the root.
-Grease: This clog typically happens about 25 feet into the sewage line, where temperatures are cool. The grease begins to turn hard and build up, and over time causes a blockage. One blast from our hydro-jetting technology and your clog will be solved.
-Old piping: Pipes older than 20 years can begin to rust, break and cause a build up. At this point, it is best to reline the interior. Our technology will make your old pipes act like they’re brand new.
-Pipe dislocation: If your home is built on expansive soil such as clay, your pipes can dislocate and move out of place. Depending on the severity we will re-align your pipes or simply re-line the interior
-Obstructed pipe: Debris like dirt, hair or items that should not be flushed cause a clog. With a simple hydro-jetting or drain cleaning procedure we’ll remove the obstruction.
