Using video equipment during preliminary inspections, pipe repair experts can help homeowners dealing with damaged sewer lines identify the most affordable repair solution possible. In many cases, repairing the entire length of an underground sewer pipe is unnecessary. Repairs can then be focused on the damaged section only, reducing the cost and the time it takes to fix the pipe.
Damage caused by root intrusion, isolated cracking or faulty joint sections don’t require full pipe replacement; rather, pipe lining to a specific area (a technique known as sectional point repair), in this case, is a much more affordable solution that still resolves the issue outright.
The only way to know what the best solution is for your damaged sewer pipe is by contacting a professional plumbing service in your community, who can use CCTV video inspection equipment to determine the exact extent of the problem. CCTV video cameras can help homeowners find the exact cause of sewer damage, including:
- Root intrusion
- Pipe cracking
- Offset joint pipes
- Deterioration over time
- Poor installation or previous repair efforts
- Accidental puncturing
- Severe blockage
