How is the video inspection conducted?
- First, we cautiously open the drain.
- Next, a flexible rod with a high-resolution, waterproof video camera attached to the end is inserted into the sewer line or underground pipe.
- This rod is then maneuvered through the entirety of your sewer or drain line, enabling us to catch any existing or potential issues on real-time video image transmission.
- Based on what we see during your drain or sewer inspection, we deliver specifics on any current and emerging problems.
Why Would I Need a Philadelphia Drain or Sewer Inspection in the First Place?
One of the most common causes of sewer line or pipe damage is root intrusion. Tree roots constantly seek moisture, leading them to the line or pipe and creating a blockage or rupture. Also, just like your drain pipes, your sewer line could become clogged due to improper use of your drains or a lack of regular maintenance.
In other instances, the line itself could be the problem. Over time, your sewer and drain lines can become settled, disjointed, or even crushed. This occurs more often in older homes, where the lines are composed of cast iron and clay piping, rather than plastic. This can also happen after a natural disaster occurs, such as an earthquake or other event that shakes your home’s foundation.
Storm Drain Video Inspection
In the past, TLC Drain & Sewer has been hired to perform a storm drain video inspection under a municipal roadway. The project was completed promptly as per the order of the Township Public Works Director. All recording reports were sent the following morning, allowing TLC to resolve this urgent matter as soon as possible. If you work for a local municipality within our service areas, contact our utility experts when you need storm drain video inspections performed quickly and professionally.
Drainage Water Management for Commercial Properties
Parking lots and loading bays can be seen almost everywhere, from shopping centers to office buildings to schools. Storm water drainage-flow maintenance is an integral component in the design of parking lots and bays, but it’s not just about constructing an adequate storm drainage system—it’s also about maintaining the flow requirements underground. In fact, in most commercial buildings, it’s what you cannot see that can cost you the most. Evaluating rainfall and runoff magnitude, pavement drainage, gutter flow and drainage inlets will not be adequate if the primary drain volume is diminished by debris, damage or root infiltration. Luckily, our team of experienced professionals will inspect your existing drainage system, recommend adjustments, and implement them to ensure proper drainage at your facility. Call TLC today for commercial video inspections, smoke testing, and other sewer and drain services for your business.
