Drain inspection is one of the easiest and most affordable ways for Federal Way property owners to preserve their pipes and save time and money on sewer repairs, but many people are unaware of the benefits this service can provide. At Bob Oates Plumbing, Sewer and Rooter, we work hard to make sure all Federal Way residents understand drain inspection and how it can help clean, repair, and maintain your pipe system.
Your drainage system is essential to the health and hygiene of your business or home, and there are various reasons to pay careful attention to the condition of your pipes – especially if your property is more than 20 years old. Most importantly, you can spend more time and money on repairing a long-neglected leak or blockage than what you’d otherwise spend on a proactive, professional inspection of your sewers and drains from the experienced team at Bob Oates Plumbing, Sewer and Rooter.
The Benefits of Drain Inspection
Sewer and drain inspections are one of the most essential services modern plumbing technicians can provide. Before the advent of advanced video camera technology for drain inspections, plumbing specialists had to rely on a combination of educated guessing and inefficient digging to determine the source of common plumbing issues such as clogs and leaks. Now, however, sewer cameras have reduced the need for plumbing pros to use hunches in their work, reducing the costs of maintenance substantially.
For example, some sewer pipes may have developed problems that require rehabilitation, while others may be made with outdated materials that have degraded with years of use. Tree roots that have infiltrated your the pipes may be a source of additional damage. To complete a drain inspection, Bob Oates Plumbing, Sewer and Rooter relies on high-resolution, waterproof cameras, which are attached to a flexible rod to peer around tight corners and access all the portions of your sewer system.
Once we’ve reviewed the footage and identified the source of the issue, we can immediately recommend the best way to address it and restore regular flow and function to your sewer system. In addition, regular preventive sewer line inspections are an excellent opportunity to learn about potential issues that are developing before they become problematic, which can help save you from headaches down the road.
