What We Check During a Sewer Inspection

Schedule Online

When you call a plumber in Phoenix, AZ from Zippity Split Plumbing about a sewer-related problem, the first step we would take is to perform a camera inspection. This is done to determine the overall condition of your sewer lines and identify the source of the problem. Here’s a closer look at what we commonly check for during a sewer inspection.

Low Areas

You don’t necessarily need sewer repair services in Phoenix, AZ if there are low or sagging parts of a sewer pipe. What’s also called a “belly” is often caused by poor sewer line layout. A camera inspection can identify such areas. This allows our technicians to determine if further attention is needed because of the extent of the sagging.

Offset Pipes

Shifting soil is one reason why two parts of a pipe that meet may become offset. If the misalignment is significant enough, you’ll likely benefit from sewer pipe line repair in Phoenix, AZ. An inspection can determine the extent of the misalignment and the affected location.

Tree Roots

A common reason for sewer line replacement in Phoenix, AZ or sewer repair is because of damage from tree roots. Older clay and cast iron sewer lines are especially susceptible to tree root intrusions, which can be detected by a sewer inspection. During a sewer inspection, we also typically check for:

  • Cracks or fractures in pipe walls
  • Damaged sewer line joints
  • A pipe collapse
  • Accumulated debris
  • Sediment buildup along pipe walls
