Sewer Camera Inspection
In order to know whether or not trenchless techniques can be used in place of traditional sewer repair methods, our skilled technicians must first conduct a sewer camera inspection. This is done in order to determine the exact cause and location of the problem. Any sewer line problem can be diagnosed using a sewer camera inspection.
The inspection is conducted using a small, specialized video camera attached to a long cable. The camera and cable are pushed through the sewer pipe, recording footage that shows the pipe’s condition from beginning to end. The resulting footage is displayed on a heavy-duty video display monitor, allowing us to accurately diagnose the problem.
Like all of the other sewer repair services we provide here at Rooter Flush, we use state-of-the-art equipment when conducting sewer camera inspections. We also charge very affordable rates and get the job done fast. A small amount of time and money is all it takes to avoid the potential of an unexpected sewer repair bill.
Sewer Camera Inspection for Chicago Homebuyers
You shouldn’t only have a sewer camera inspection done once problems start to arise. Inspections should also be done during the process of buying a new house. A simple sewer camera inspection can protect homebuyers from unforeseen sewer-related problems occurring down the road.
It’s important for potential homebuyers to request a sewer camera inspection before committing to a new home purchase. No matter how well-maintained a house may appear to be, it is impossible for homebuyers to know the condition of the sewer line without conducting an inspection.
Sewer line replacement is another one of the services we specialize in. A sewer camera inspection allows us to see if a sewer line needs to be replaced. Most of the time, the sewer line can be repaired using the trenchless sewer techniques mentioned above.
If the damage to the pipe is minimal, sewer pipe lining is often the most appropriate course of action. It’s the least invasive method of trenchless sewer repair. It also costs the least amount of money and takes the shortest amount of time.
When the damage to a sewer is too significant for pipe lining to fix, sewer pipe bursting is the next best option. Pipe bursting is slightly more invasive than pipe lining, but it is still preferable to digging up your yard to perform a traditional type of repair.
When a sewer pipe becomes too clogged for mechanical snakes and sewer rodding techniques to be effective, a process called hydro jetting is used. Hydro jetting removes heavy clogs and obstructions caused by materials such as tree roots and grease while simultaneously scouring the inside of sewer pipes. Hydro jetting is also sometimes called high-pressure water jetting.
Hydro jetting is performed using a long hose with a specialized, high-pressure nozzle. The hose is connected to a tank of water and pushed into a drain or sewer line. The hose then cleans the inside of the pipe by delivering a forceful blast of water, sometimes up to 20 gallons of water per minute.
A sewer camera inspection is typically performed before and after jetting the line. The initial inspection tells us if hydro jetting is the most appropriate course of action. It also shows us the location of the blockage, as well as the condition of the pipe. If a pipe is too damaged from tree root infiltration, hydro jetting cannot be done, and the pipe will need to be replaced. The follow-up inspection is used to assess the effectiveness of the jetting.
Hydro jetting will likely solve any drainage issues you’ve been having. It will also prolong the lifespan of your pipes. The sooner your pipes are cleaned, the better, so give us a call at 773-563-4543 or click the button below to schedule an appointment.
Sewer Pipe Descaling
If you notice your home or business’ drainage getting progressively worse, it may be the result of scale buildup in your pipes. Scale is a hardened coating made from a combination of debris and wastewater. It builds up over time with regular use, especially in cast iron sewer pipes. Large scale deposits can impede the flow of water to and from your property if left untreated.
We restore pipes that have a buildup of scale using specialized equipment. We use a tool that grinds away the scale deposits that have built up inside the pipe, leaving it with a smooth, clean surface.
Descaling doesn’t just solve your drainage problems. It also increases the longevity of your pipes and reduces the likelihood of needing a sewer line replacement.
If you think your sewer pipes are in need of a descaling, don’t put it off any longer. Like with any sewer-related issue, the sooner harmful scale buildup is taken care of, the better. The longer you wait, the more corroded your pipes will become, until they eventually need to be replaced entirely.
Sewer Cleaning / Sewer Rodding
Another effective method of sewer cleaning is sewer rodding. This procedure is done using a specialized tool known as a plumbing or sewer rod. It’s a flexible rod designed to move through long pipes and push out blockages with complete accuracy.
First, a sewer camera inspection is performed in order to determine if sewer rodding is the best course of action. If the situation calls for a plumbing rod to be used, our technician will feed the device into the pipe through a drain or manhole depending on the location of the clog.
Though plumbing rods are flexible enough to get around the many twists and turns in your pipes, it is also firm enough to push blockages out of the way. Once the blockage has been cleared, the flow of water should return to normal.
