Your homes sewer system and drain line are very important parts of your property. Without them your toilets would not work and you would not be able to use your sinks. Keeping your sewer in good working order is very important. A great way to tell the condition of your sewer drain is to have it inspected using a camera system. This will determine if you have any issues down the line. Today we are going to learn what you the homeowner should know about sewer pipe cameras.

How Sewer Pipe Cameras Can Benefit You

• You will rule out any roots:  A great way to determine if you have roots growing in your sewer line is by having it inspected with a camera. Roots grow very slowly but they can become a major problem if they are not detected soon. If allowed to grow large blockages can form and they can also burst open your sewer drain line. Having your sewer line inspected with a camera can allow you to catch roots early and get rid of them easily.

• Find out if you have sagging pipes:  When a sewer drain line gets older they tend to sag and with this happens paper and other waste can get trapped. This causes the flow issues and can slow your sewer system down a lot. A great way to find out if you have this issue is to run a camera down your sewer drain line. The professional sewer inspection technician will be able to determine if you have a sagging sewer drain and let you know what can be done to fix the issue.

• Camera inspection will save you money:  The cost of having your sewer drain inspected compared to the cost of a major repair job is very different. By having your system routinely inspected every few years you will find small issues and be able to fix them cheaply. This will save you tons of money in the future and the price you pay for the inspection will be well worth it.

• You will be able to inspect inline traps:  Most sewer drain systems have inline traps that are designed to catch grease which prevents it from clogging up your line. Over time these traps will need to be inspected and cleaned out if necessary. In the past the only way to know if these traps needed cleaning was to dig them up. But now a camera can be used to inspect them eliminating any unnecessary excavation.

• If you’re selling an inspection can increase your value:  Are you going to be selling your home in the future? If you are, a great way to increase the value of your home is by having your sewer drain inspected. But you might be asking how an inspection can increase property value? When a potential buyer looks at your home and they see that your sewer is in proper working order then they will be more willing to pay more. This will give them peace of mind knowing the property they are about to buy has been kept up.
