In-Depth Sewer Inspection from No Dig Team
Sewer issues are unfortunately common in homes and businesses in Montana, Wyoming and Idaho. Because sewer lines are buried several feet underground, locating a clog, crack or other issues can be a challenge. At No Dig Team, our technicians perform accurate sewer inspections. Our state-of-the-art video cameras provide real-time, reliable information about the precise location of all types of sewer issues in laterals and main lines.
Common Issues We Check
When you call us about a sewer problem and request an inspection, we'll ask you several questions about the issue, its frequency, when it started, and what makes it worse. Based on your answers, we check for:
- Tree root clogs
- Mineral scale
- Waste or debris clogs
- Cracks or offsets
- Pipe collapse
- Missing pipe sections
The Process of Sewer Inspections
To inspect your sewer line, we use a small, waterproof video camera with an LED. The camera delivers a real-time video feed to our color monitor. You can watch the monitor along with us, or we can create a recording and show it to you later. The camera attaches to a long, flexible cord. We deploy it into the sewer line through the existing clean-out hatch, so no digging is required to perform the inspection. Our technician remotely operates and monitors the camera's progress through the sewer line. The technician notes problems and uses the camera's geographic information to pinpoint the exact location of the sewer issue.
Signs a Sewer Inspection Is Needed
Before you have a crew begin any work on your plumbing system, schedule a video inspection of your sewer. This inspection could make a big difference in the effectiveness of a repair. We also recommend a sewer inspection in the following situations:
- Before buying or selling a home
- Foul odors from plumbing fixtures
- Persistent wet area in your yard or basement
- Standing water in drains
- Gurgling or bubbling from drains
- Slow emptying of drains
- Sewage backup
