Sewer Inspection

Whether buying or living in an older home, the sewer line is one of the most important things to look at. Older sewer pipes are more prone to issues like cracks, leaks, and corrosion while sewer line issues are not common, our experts at NGI Trenchless Pipe & Sewer Repair recommend regular sewer camera inspection in Atlanta, GA, for the following reasons.

Determine the condition of sewer lines

While sewer lines are made using durable materials, they can still experience problems after being in place for a long time. When clients call our pipe lining company, we conduct a sewer video inspection to help us determine the sewer line’s condition.

This way, we can advise clients where they need to replace or repair the lines soon. It is also essential for clients who want to move into or sell an old home. When sewer lines are in good condition, our clients are assured they will not experience any age-related issues or need to replace them soon.

Identify poisonous materials

A regular plumbing inspection might catch many plumbing issues but might not identify poisonous materials and gasses in the sewer lines. Sewer lines in many old homes were made using dangerous materials like polybutylene, lead, and galvanized steel.

These materials release poisonous chemicals that are health hazards. Our pipe camera inspection will help our clients determine this to plan a sewer line replacement.

Determine issues in the sewer line

Homeowners regularly experience issues like blocked sewer lines or backups when wastewater comes back up from sinks, toilets, or showers. These problems could happen because of grease and dirt buildup, scum, excess tissues, and hair, or root invasion.

A drain camera inspection helps us determine the exact issue, making it easy to develop a fast and effective solution. It also helps us locate the exact place of the issue. This way, we will not need to dig up large portions of the yard.
