Since pipes and sewer lines are either hidden in walls, flooring or underground, there can be difficulty in finding a problem. However, video pipeline inspection is an easy and cost-effective way to find an issue before it turns into a big headache. Here are some benefits to video pipeline inspection.
Less Invasive Procedure in Detecting Plumbing Issues
Video pipeline inspection can help you avoid costly digging to locate a plumbing problem with your pipes. No doubt you’ll appreciate leaving your property intact. Video inspection lines are fed throughout your drains to detect leaks and blockage or any other problems that would otherwise not be detected without having to dig up your yard.
Detect Hidden Tree Roots
Tree roots thrive in moist environments, so water lines are the perfect place for them to grow. A video pipeline inspection can detect blockage due to tree roots. Detecting the tree root problem before it gets out of control can save you from costly pipeline repairs. If your video inspection shows that you are clear of tree roots, here are some things you can do to prevent tree roots from growing inside your sewer lines in the future:
- If you are going to plant trees, place them at least 10 feet away from your water line.
- Limit the number of trees you will be planting.
- Choose slow-growing trees to plant.
Pipes that are old or exposed to harsh weather conditions, you may have undetected leaks. Even the smallest leak can wreak havoc on your plumbing lines as well as cause an increase in your water bills. If you’ve noticed a spike in your water bill, it may be time to order a pipeline video inspection.
