Due to its underground operation and network of small pipes, there’s only so much of your septic system that can be inspected by a human being. If you are looking for a more detailed and comprehensive evaluation of your septic operation, you’ll need to hire a company who uses camera inspection technology.
A camera septic inspection is more comprehensive than a standard septic inspection and allows the inspector to see potential problems that may be present in your septic system. The process involves placing a a thin, flexible fiber optic camera through the front and back plumbing lines. The live video imaging can tell a team of professionals if your pipes look healthy, if they are blocked, or if they have potential clogging point that need to be addressed. A team of knowledgeable inspectors and this advanced camera technology can work together to ensure every part of your septic system is in good working order.
“Out of sight, out of mind” shouldn’t necessarily hold true with your septic system. The problems that you can’t see will likely become painfully visible if they are not addressed. For example, a potential clog that finally stops up your septic tank can cause a devastating septic backup in your home or business. However, the regular use of camera inspections can prevent these costly disasters by detecting problems at their earliest and most treatable stage.
Helps You Plan and Make Decisions
One of the most vital assets when choosing a new home is a well-functioning plumbing system. If your new home has a septic system, you shouldn’t cut corners on the inspection.
