Tips for Best Mainline and Infrastructure Inspection

It is vitaly important to examine sanitary infrastructure before buying a property or making investments, and before building new estate objects. 
Sewer pipe problems have indicators, which can be revealed during video inspection of pipe system. Some of the most noticeable signs are: 

  • Water stains - sign that the sewer line is not draining properly. 
  • Physical damages - cracked walls or floors suggest movement of the foundation.
  • Outside “cleanouts” - outside cleanout that is not original to the home is a possible sign that repair was performed recently.
  • Trees - near the area of the yard where the sewer line runs should always be cause for concern, because their routes can break old pipelines.
  • Hidden damages of pipeline - can be detected only during video inspection with the help of special cameras.
