At Go Direct, we understand our Denver area customers want their problems fixed quickly, and have representatives available 24/7 to take your calls at 303.288.0039.
When Denver homeowners experience backups, unpleasant smells, slow drains, or clogs, they often try to fix things on their own first. Homeowners try plungers, drain cleaners, or the type of snake available in hardware stores to clear blockages without knowing the root cause of the problem.
To diagnose hidden sewer problems at your Denver home, Go Direct starts with a video inspection using a sewer camera pushed through your pipes on a sewer snake. Depending on where the backup occurs, we will run the sewer camera down branch lines (from sinks, showers, or bathtubs to the main line) or down the house’s main sewer line leading out to the street where it connects with the municipal sewer line.
Once we view your sewer lines with the sewer camera, we can pinpoint whether the sewer backup is being caused by tree roots, clogs, scale, cracks, debris, slope issues, bellies, sewer channels, or misaligned, broken, punctured, off-grade, or corroded pipes.
If the sewer camera finds a clog and can push through the obstruction, it will continue out to the main sewer line to see if there are additional problem areas. The sewer snake can then grab the clogs and pull them out. If the sewer camera finds buildup and debris, sewer jetting will be recommended.
If significant damage is found in the sewer line, technicians can use the transmitter on the sewer camera to prepare for excavation. Our technician stops the camera at the damaged area, then goes outside and waves a locating device until it picks up the transmitter’s signal. The area is marked so we know where to dig to replace the sewer line.
Before you purchase a new home, consider doing a sewer camera inspection in addition to a routine home inspection to avoid problems and expensive repairs after you move in.
