Signs You Need Pipeline Inspection

Trouble in your sewer line isn’t always immediately obvious. Since this pipe is buried in a trench underneath your yard, it’s difficult to detect major issues such as breaks and blockages until they start to create significant problems in your house. Here are some of the warning signs to watch for that it’s time to call for a pipeline inspection:

  • Multiple drain clogs: A single drain clog usually means blockage in the drainpipe. But when drains around the house are either clogging or becoming slow, it’s probably because of trouble in the sewer line.
  • Soggy spots on the lawn: If you notice damp spots on your lawn or garden—usually giving off a foul odor—it’s likely that sewage is seeping up through a break in the buried pipeline.
  • Water stains around basement drains: When a sewer pipeline becomes blocked, the sewage backup will start to affect the lower parts of the home first. Water stains around the drains in the basement are a sign that this is starting to happen.
  • Odd behavior from the drains: When you flush the toilet, does water come up through the drain in the bathtub? This is a common indication that there is a significant block somewhere in the sewer line.

How Professionals Do a Sewer Line Inspection

What actually happens during pipeline inspection? Thankfully, the plumbers don’t have to rip open your yard to access the pipe. Experienced plumbers with the best technology use video camera inspection equipment to do the work. A miniaturized camera with a powerful LED light at the end of a long fiber optic cable is sent down into the drains; the cable is long enough to run the entire length of the sewer line. The camera sends back a video feed to a monitor, and the plumber can obtain a detailed look at the pipeline interior. This “sewer camera locate” method allows a plumber to identify exactly what is wrong with the pipeline, as well as the best and speediest way to repair it.
