What Causes Sewer Back-ups?
A sewer back up can be caused by many things. The top three are: tree roots that have found there way into the sewer line, sludge build up from things like soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, food particles and grease, and defective pipes. A couple of indications that there may be a problem on the horizon are frequent backups, and the occasional or ongoing presence of sewage odor.
Regular inspections and the use of new technology, like video cameras, ensure that things run smoothly now and in the future. One call to Done Plumbing, and our expert technicians will be there to find and fix any problems that may exist in your sewer system, guaranteed.
What is a Video Inspection?
Today’s technology allows us to actually inspect the inside of your sewer pipes and system without the expense and damage of digging them up. We simply insert a remote video camera into the pipes that connect your home or office building to the main sewer system. Images from the camera are viewed on a video monitor in real time as it’s maneuvered through the pipes.
This allows us to quickly identify potential problems like roots or other obstructions, structural integrity, and areas where residue has solidified along the pipes. Tree roots are very common in established areas throughout Denver and in the Front Range. Roots can penetrate the seams of a pipe eventually slowing the flow or causing pipes to become separated.
If you’re buying an existing home, or suspect sewer problems in your current home, a video inspection from Done Plumbing is a fast and easy way to diagnose the condition of the sewer, identify problems, and correct minor issues before they become major problems.
Do I Need a Video Inspection?
Think of a video sewer inspection as a kind of exploratory surgery. It’s a great way for our technicians to get an inside view of exactly what might be a current or future problem. Any number of things can cause sewer lines to run slowly, or back up completely.
Shifting soil can cause a dip separation or even a break in the pipe as area trees mature roots can find their way into pipes clogging even cracking down sewer back-ups are unpleasant messy and can cause a lot of damage to the interior of your home.
So, if your system has backed up at any time of video inspection is the way to see the cause of the problem and here’s something you may have never thought about when buying a home especially on this older than ten years of video inspection should be a priority as the buyer remember once you closed on that home the sewer and any problems or repairs now belong to you.
