Your kitchen and bathroom drains carry much more than water and other liquids
to your home’s sewer system — fat and oil from food, hair,
soap, grease and detergents end up there as well. Your drains can start
to slow and become clogged after years of regular use. Arranging for a
plumber service to perform a video inspection of your drains and sewers today,
could save you from the hassle of dealing with an inconvenient worst-case scenario.
Video Inspections Are The Best Guarantee!
A plumbing professional can provide a video inspection of your drains,
in addition to clearing any blockages. Should your drain unfortunately
be in need of additional repair, other options include
hydro jetting, relining or replacing the sewer.
Hydro jetting involves using high-pressure spray (up to 4,000 PSI) to remove
debris and other obstructions that may be causing the line to slow.
If relining the sewer is required, one advantage to this option is that
it doesn’t involve digging. The resin-soaked liner attaches to the
inside of the sewer as it hardens; resulting in a solid piece that won’t
shift or crack over time.
Although older style sewer pipes were cast iron or clay, modern sewer replacements
and repairs are PVC. Once the pipe is installed, the trench is re-filled,
and the lawn is seeded and covered with straw. Most of the time the end
result is better than the yard was in the beginning.
An Inspection Identifies Problems Before It Becomes An Expensive Fix
Dealing with sewers is something no one likes to think about until they
have a problem that can’t be ignored: a clogged bathroom or kitchen
drain, a child’s toy that is flushed down the toilet, or tree roots.
Having a plumber service perform a video inspection today will identify
any potential problems before they become emergencies and provide homeowners
with peace of mind.
