When Should I Call for Pipeline Inspection Services?

Monday, April 17th, 2017

sewer-line-repairThe sewer line that runs from your house to the municipal system in the street, or to a septic tank if your house is unconnected to the municipal line, is buried out of sight—and that’s the way we’re sure you want it. But this means it’s difficult to access or to observe when the sewer line starts leaking or suffers from tree root infestation.

Pipeline inspection services are necessary to properly diagnose what’s affecting a problematic sewer line. Our plumbers use the finest in pipeline inspection technology to do this job. Miniaturized digital cameras mounted on long fiber-optic cables capable of snaking the length of a residential sewer line give us a close view of the interior of the pipe.
