Do I Need a Sewer INspection?
Do you have a sewer line that is not functioning correctly? Sewer lines are often overlooked during the construction of new buildings. Luckily, there is an inexpensive way to inspect your sewer line before it becomes too costly or time-consuming to fix! Sewer camera inspection services offer many benefits, including:
What Is A Sewer Camera Inspection?
Sewer camera inspections are the process of inspecting sewer lines using a video camera. Sewers contain wastewater and other substances, so it is impossible to see inside them with the naked eye or by looking from above through manholes. With a sewer inspection service, the pipes are cleaned out first, then a tiny video camera at one end of an extendable rod is lowered into the line. At the same time, someone watches carefully from a screen. A sewer inspection can be done with the pipes clean, dirty, or even when they're full of water!
Camera Inspection before Lining
Phoenix sewer camera inspections can identify roots, rust, and pipes that are falling apart! Roots mean the sewer line is compromised and there is a greater risk of the pipe collapsing. After a sewer camera inspection, Peerless can determine the damage and provide you with the best solution.
Once our NuDrain liner has hardened, we will perform another sewer camera inspection, showing you exactly how beneficial the liner is.
We also offer Phoenix sewer camera inspections before the liner is installed.
Why do some homeowners need to have this type of inspection
Sewer camera inspections are beneficial for homeowners because they give you an accurate picture of what's going on inside your sewers without relying on guesswork from your plumber. Clogs, broken pipes, partial pipe buildup, and tree root penetration are things that sewer camera inspections can communicate to us.
Sewer inspection frequency varies from homeowner to homeowner and depends on how accessible the sewer is. If your home's pipes closer to your home, then you'll need a camera inspection less frequently. Sewers with long stretches of pipe before they reach homes or other buildings require more frequent inspections because there's a greater chance for things like tree roots to penetrate them.

Inspecting sewers is essential because they carry wastewater from homes and businesses to a treatment plant. A sewer line running alongside a building runs wastewater in pipes underground into structures called manholes before finally emptying into larger drains along streets and riverbanks. Sewers also need maintenance periodically; depending on how well-maintained the sewer system is, an inspection may be necessary from time to time.
Inspections can help detect possible issues in the sewage or storm water systems and can also identify chronic problems that need immediate attention so they don't lead to more severe consequences, such as backups into buildings. Sewer inspections should typically be performed at least once every two years for residential properties and annually for commercial ones; however, this varies depending on local regulations and usage of the sewer system.
