The Benefits of a Drain or Sewer Video Inspection.

Posted by

blogYou know what used to happen before drain video inspection cameras first came on the scene?  A lot of educated guesswork, that’s what.  The kind needed to figure out – or at least attempt to figure out – exactly where along a drain line a problem might exist, much less the extent or cause of the problem.

If the drain company working without a video camera guessed right, that minimized the amount of digging inside walls, under a lawn, or under an outdoor paved surface needed to get at the problem.  If they guessed wrong, then more digging was required just to ascertain what happened, and what needed to be done to make things right again.

Today, however, in-line video drain and sewer cameras do exist, and Burton is one of a handful of companies in the Omaha area that has and uses them to diagnose clogged drain problems in the most efficient way possible while avoiding untold amounts of digging.

When and why do we employ our drain video technology?  Any time normal drain clearing methods don’t succeed in fixing the problem.  Then, we need to figure out what’s really going on, and exactly where the problem exists inside or outside your home.  Here’s what that means to you:

  • A lot time saved, and time saved equal money saved
  • No digging/excavation required to locate the source and cause of the problem

Equally important, our video inspection cameras are equipped with recorders which, in turn, enable us to capture video and still images that we can share with you so you can see the damage for yourself.  What kind of damage are we talking about that would be severe enough to render normal drain clearing methods useless?  Here are just a few examples:

  • A cracked or crushed drain line
  • Tree or shrub roots that have invaded and thoroughly clogged up the inside of a pipe
  • A drain connection that has come loose and has to be repaired

Using our video inspection cameras also tells us exactly what your drain lines are made of – another key ingredient in coming up with exactly the right solution.

If you currently have a clogged drain or sewer problem that you haven’t been able to fix on your own, and other plumbers can’t seem to resolve either, then you’ll definitely want to contact Burton today.  We have all the latest equipment and technologies at our disposal to diagnose and repair your particular problem quickly, efficiently, and with no unnecessary damage to your property.
