Sewer Camera Inspection in Mankato
Need to figure out what is happening with the sewer pipe that’s buried underground in your yard? The last thing you want is to find out is that there’s been a break, crack, leak or cave in. Even worse, these problems are nearly impossible to detect with the naked eye; much less from above ground. In Mankato, North Dakota the best way to find out is with a sewer camera inspection. That’s one of the things we offer at Drain Services Inc.
So, What Exactly Is A Sewer Camera Inspection?
The inspection of a sewer line with a camera is exactly what it sounds like. We insert a video camera into the pipe to take an up-close look at what is happening inside of it. The tiny video camera gives us a detailed visual which we can use to properly diagnose all kinds of problems.
For example, even if there is no clog or cave in, the video camera will show us the condition of your pipes. We may also spot a problem early in the development stages. Cracks are one such issue that can be spotted through a video camera inspection long before the pipe starts to leak from the crack.
How Does The Camera Get Into The Pipe?
We get asked this one a lot. We use trenchless technology which means we do not excavate your yard to pull out a pipe to look at it. What we will do is dig one or two small holes down to the pipe connection locations. This is where we can insert the camera. Once we open the connection and slide the video camera inside, we will have eyes where we couldn’t get them in any other way. There is a light unit on the camera assembly that gives us the ability to see what is going on in the dark depths of your sewer line. Plus, it makes for better video recording.
What If My Pipes Are Fine, Even After The Inspection?
Well, good for you! It is a wise piece of preventative maintenance to have your pipeline video inspected at least once so you can find out what the condition of your pipes is underground. Plus, if something is discovered but does not require immediate attention, we can use that information to measure future video inspections against to see if anything is progressing to the point where a relining or repair is required. Annual video pipe inspections are a good idea and an affordable way to keep an eye on issues that could potentially become an expensive repair if not caught early.
