You probably already know that the sewer lines transports water waste away from your home. Since the sewers are hidden from view, most people don’t give it much thought until something goes wrong. Ignoring your sewer line can lead to serious problems that can cause extensive damage to your home.
A damaged sewer line will affect the sanitary situation in your home and put the health of your family at risk. As a homeowner, you should be keen on matters that can pose a risk to your family’s health.
Sewer scope inspection
Since your sewer lines are located underground, it can be difficult to determine the source of the problem. If you suspect that your sewer line is blocked, consider getting an inspection.
In a sewer line inspection, professionals attach a camera at the end of a flexible rod and push it down the pipes. The real-time video allows them to see the pipes in their entirety. This makes it easier for them locate and diagnose clogs, breaks, cracks or any other issues within the plumbing system. This eliminates the need to do excessive digging in your yard. Ultimately, it helps them determine the extent of any issue that may be present.
It may not be a pretty sight, but it will help you find out exactly what is going on inside your home plumbing and determine the best way to address the issue.
Most people aren’t aware that their sewer line is clogged until they have a backflow issue. When the sewers become so full that they cannot drain effectively, waste water may back up in your bathroom drain, sink, and dishwasher. It is noxiously smelly and can even pose a threat to your family’s health. If left unaddressed, the problem can cause much greater harm.
If you want your sewer line to operate just as it should, then we recommend that you have it professionally cleaned with a sewer clean out. Ideally, this should be done annually. Not only will it protect you from major inconveniences, it will also help extend the longevity of your sewer line.
Don’t let your drains and sewers become a major problem. Have your sewer line cleaned at least once a year to protect you from these inconveniences. Call GoDirect Plumbing Sewer Line Repair to schedule to solve your sewer line problems.
