If you or your property is experiencing any of the following symptoms, your property may require a pipeline video inspection to determine the appropriate solution.
Sewer Lateral Symptoms
Foul sewer odor - Sewer odor is usually blocked by water in the drain traps or by vents that only allow airflow in one direction (out of the building). If water in the drain traps evaporates, such as in an unused sink or bath, the sewer odors are free to rise up the drain into the building. If a vent pipe is not joined properly, or is damaged, the outdoor air pressure could force sewer odors into your property.
Backed-up sewer line - Sewer lines back up due to blockages. Blockages could include root intrusion, debris, grease build-up, or crushed pipe.
Overgrown patch of grass in yard - If your sewer lateral is faulty, it could be leaking water and waste into your yard. As the soil absorbs the additional moisture and "nutrients", the growth of the surrounding area could significantly stand out in color and growth rate.
Video inspection in pipelines can help to identify the following issues
- Cracked sewer lateral
- Bellied drain line
- Separated lateral joint
- Debris blockage
- Root intrusion
- Leaking pipe joints
- Deteriorated piping materials
If your system is showing signs of damage, have your system inspected by an Original Leak Specialist.
When a damaged drain requires excavation and repairs, the cost and duration of required work can vary enormously depending on a number of factors. In order to assess exactly what would be involved in dealing with your drainage problem, one of our drainage engineers will need to inspect the site and determine the best course of action.
Our drainage engineer will then be able to provide you with a estimate of the required work for your drain excavation and drain repairs. If you want to arrange an appointment to assess your drainage problem, give us a call on the freephone number above.
