Why a Camera Inspection Is Important for Your Drain Line

Man doing maintenance on pipes outside Photos tell a story, so why not let them tell the story of your main drain line? Finding the cause of leaky pipes, slow drains, or a backed-up toilet isn’t always easy to detect, but it can be easier with modern technology.

Through the use of Korrect Plumbing’s video inspection cameras, the cause of sewer drainage issues can be detected and resolved.

A camera inspection can show problems with piping and where issues are located, and it can be helpful when a line needs to be replaced or repaired. If a plumber tells you that your main needs to be replaced, or if major repairs are needed, call for a camera inspection of the line. 

A video camera inspection is important. Consider this new technology when you are experiencing:

  • Slow or gurgling drains
  • Backed up drains
  • Sewer odor in the home
  • Sinkholes in your yard

If you have large trees or bushes close to where the main drain runs from your home to the city sewer at the street, root buildup may be a problem that periodically needs attention. With a video inspection, problems are located quickly, before any digging is done or other unnecessary destruction of walls, flooring or your yard. The use of a camera also allows for preventative maintenance and affordable troubleshooting.

Video Inspection Services Can

  • Tell you where and if a pipe is broken
  • Tell you if a pipe is old and needs replacing or is cracked due to tree roots
  • Find areas that may be a future concern
  • Tell you why a line is clogged or slow
  • Reduce any guesswork about necessary repairs and location of faulty lines
  • Save money on labor costs

Drain lines are an important part of any plumbing system. If ignored, lines can eventually lead to a huge mess. Over time, drain lines will develop an accumulation of soap scum, hair, food particles and whatever else you put down in them.

If you are having a problem with a backed up or slow drain, call Korrect to clear the drain and have it flowing again. Korrect offers professional-grade drain cleaning equipment to clean and maintain anything from a small sink or toilet drain up to 6-inch main drain lines.

Korrect also offers hydro jetting, a sewer cleaning process that works on various types and sizes of pipe, including storm and sewer drain systems. Unlike a mechanical rod (cable or snake) which just cuts a hole in the blockage, hydro jetting removes the blockage from the inner wall of a pipe, returning the pipe to its original diameter.

This concept of high-pressure cleaning is a proven solution for removing up to 100 percent of the grease, roots, and debris built up in sewer lines. Hydro jetting cleans sewer lines as no other process can.
