What to look for in camera sewer inspection in Boston

The most important system of the entire home lies beneath its surface with the network of pipes and sewer lines that work to dispose the waste it carries.

Like any system, sewer lines are prone to wear and tear over time and require regular inspection and maintenance to ensure nothing unpleasant occurs outside or within your Boston home. 

The contractors affiliated with Plumbers 911 Boston are here to show you what to look for during a camera sewer inspection to catch issues early and avoid costly repairs. 

Tree root intrusions 

Tree roots actively seek out water and nutrients, which they can commonly find through small openings or compromised areas of the sewer pipe. 

As these roots grow, they can wreak havoc on pipes by trapping other debris, causing a blockage and turning small holes into big problems.

Severe damage can lead to the need to replace the entire sewer line, so it is imperative to identify and remove roots promptly before they escalate into a significant issue.

Other blockages and obstructions

In addition to tree roots and leaves, the most common problems encountered in sewer inspections are blockages caused by grease buildup and other foreign objects.

When left untreated, blockages can lead to sewage backups and damage to the entire plumbing system. Removing the blockage early can help ensure a smooth flow of the sewer line and prevent costly repairs down the line.

Cracked or collapsed pipes

Sewer pipes can deteriorate over time due to age, ground shifting or external pressure, all of which can lead to leaks and sewage backups.

Identifying any cracks or collapses in the system early through a sewer inspection can help prevent extensive damage and destructive trouble inside and outside your home. 

Corrosion and deterioration

Between the extreme fluctuating temperatures of the Boston seasons and corrosive substances going down the drain, sewer pipes are regularly exposed to harsh conditions that could ultimately compromise their structural integrity. 

A sewer inspection can uncover signs of corrosion, allowing for timely repairs or replacement to prevent leaks and sewage spills and improve the overall performance and longevity of your system.
