Top Problems Found During a Pipe Camera Inspection

Home / Top Problems Found During a Pipe Camera Inspection

Sewer problems may remain undetected until significant damage becomes obvious. To see where the issue is, Federal EC offers pipe inspection in Charlotte, NC. There are many other benefits to pipe inspection, one of which is being able to identify and locate the issue.

Below are the most common problems that a pipe camera inspection helps us detect.

Low Area

Low areas, also referred to as a sewer line belly, are sections of a drainage pipe where the lining dips. This lowered section allows for debris to collect within the pipes, causing a backup. A pipe inspection can help detect any defects in the pipes and allows our team to fix the issues before a complete blockage can occur.

Tree Roots

An otherwise smooth-running pipe system can be compromised by tree roots that infiltrate and fill the interior of the pipes. Our sewer scoping services can identify the location of where the tree roots can be best removed from within the pipes. We also offer hydro jetting, a method that uses pressurized water to clear out any obstructions within sewer and pipe systems.

Rust and Corrosion

Sewer pipes succumb to rust and other kinds of deterioration over time. The corroded pipes also become more prone to cracks and leaks, which hastens the deterioration. The best way to deal with rusted pipes is by replacing them. A timely drain inspection from our company can detect the first signs of corrosion so that the proper measures can be taken.

Misaligned Pipes

There are some instances where even properly installed pipes may change position due to shifts in soil or due to heavy machinery on top of the location of the pipes. The misalignment can alter the smooth flow of water in the drainage system. The offsets in the pipe can be extremely challenging to figure out without proper sewer camera inspection.

Collapsed Pipes

The sewer system may suffer a collapse and remain unnoticed for a while. Collapsed pipes may cause complete blockages mimicking stubborn clogs. A drain inspection would clear any doubts by allowing us to identify the real problem so we could offer viable solutions.
