If you're experiencing the following symptoms, your property may require a pipeline video inspection to determine the appropriate solution.
Sewer Lateral Symptoms
- Foul sewer odor - Sewer odor is usually blocked by water in the drain traps or by vents that only allow airflow in one direction (out of the building). If water in the drain trap evaporates, such as in an unused sink or bath, the sewer odors are free to rise up the drain into the building. If a vent pipe is not joined properly or is damaged, the outdoor air pressure could force sewer odors into your property.
- Backed-up sewer line - Sewer lines back up due to blockages. Blockages could include root intrusion, debris, grease build-up or a crushed pipe.
- Overgrown patch of grass in the yard - If your sewer lateral is faulty, it could be leaking water and waste into your yard. As the soil absorbs the additional moisture and nutrients, the growth of the surrounding area could significantly stand out in color and growth rate.
Video inspection in pipelines can help identify the following issues:
- Cracked sewer lateral.
- Bellied drain line.
- Separated lateral joint.
- Debris blockage.
- Root intrusion.
- Leaking pipe joints.
- Deteriorated piping materials.
