Plumbing in Arlington, Texas – When you’re experiencing sewer line issues, a video pipe inspection will determine the problem, and where along the sewer lines the repair is needed. The most common causative reasons for sewer pipe issues include broken pipe, root intrusion, off-set pipes, broken seals and age related deterioration. A sewer pipe leak is a serious issue with your home’s plumbing in Arlington, Texas and requires prompt action to repair.
A video pipe inspection, performed by a licensed plumber using a tool often called a plumbers snake, has revolutionized the plumbing industry. Utilizing a small, waterproof video camera and lights attached to the end of a flexible cable, this tool enables Benjamin Franklin’s experienced plumbers to send the camera down the pipes and inspect them in real time while recording the camera’s journey onto a disc for later viewing. The real time images viewed on a screen enables the plumber to identify the problem, the pipe’s condition, and the location of the issue.
This information enables the plumber to determine the most efficient plumbing repair applicable for your plumbing in Arlington, Texas.
When a home has an issue with its plumbing in Arlington, Texas, and the problem is located in an exterior sewer pipe, a video pipe inspection will determine the cause and the location without the need to disrupt the lawn and landscaping by excavating. The plumber is then able to repair the pipe with minimal or no disturbance of the lawn.
Video Pipe Inspection Benefits
- Identifies of the specific nature of a sewer pipe issue, such as a clog, pipe damage and pipe condition, as well as the pipe material.
- Provides the precise location of the area requiring repair, eliminating the need for extensive disruption of the lawn.
- Once the repair is completed, a repeat video pipe inspection verifies the issue has been resolved in the home’s plumbing in Arlington, Texas.
- Provides the plumber with a real time view in order to assess the condition of older pipes and sewer systems.
- Enables the plumber to identify problems before further damage or complete blockage occurs.
- Video line inspections provide a means for the inspection of drains and the sewer pipe located beneath slab foundations, other structures and underground. In the past, the only means to inspect the pipes beneath a slab was to break through the slab, and trace the sewer pipe until the issue was located.
When leaks occur, fast intervention is required for slab leaks or pier and beam foundations to prevent severe damage to the foundation. The majority of slab leaks can be repaired without any damage to floors.
Causes of Leaks:
- Deteriorated Pipe: Pipe in poor condition due to age or corrosion will eventually leak and/or experience blockage.
- Bellied Pipe: A sunken section of pipe due to soil conditions creating a swag in the pipe. This can cause sewer blockage as waste collects in the sunken section.
- Blockage: Blockage can be due to the buildup of grease, tree roots or other objects. Video pipe inspection provides a clear picture of the issue, and an accurate location of the blockage within your sewer system’s plumbing in Arlington, Texas.
- Damaged Pipes: Pipe that is broken, cracked or collapsed.
- Leaky Joints: Leaky joints occur when the seal between pipes fail, resulting in effluent leaking out and draining into the soil, and potentially into the water table.
- Offset Pipe: Sewer pipe that is misaligned due to shifting soil or other causes allowing leakage to occur into the soil.
- Root Infiltration: The invasion of tree roots into the sewer pipe causing blockage and/or damage to the sewer pipe. Trees roots will seek out water, and sewer pipes are fair game to thirsty roots. Never plant trees or shrubs within 25 feet of a sewer line.
When to Call for Video Line Inspection
- If you’re experiencing slow drains, no drainage, reoccurring clogs or sewer backup, a video pipe inspection will accurately identify the cause and location within your plumbing in Arlington, Texas.
- When water is pooling on the lawn for no apparent reason, call a Benjamin Franklin plumber. In the absence of pooling water, the soil may be moist and spongy when the surrounding soil is dry. In addition, the grass may appear greener and lusher than in other areas of the lawn.
