Sewer Camera Inspections
Sewer Line Camera Inspection
While sewer inspection camera systems are a relatively new invention for the plumbing world, it has taken the plumbing industry by storm due to its incredible usefulness! Instead of the old, time-consuming, and extremely expensive trenching inspection methods, plumbers can now just send this tiny camera down a pipe to view all the problems and damages. This means that your yard won’t be destroyed in order to reach your underground pipes. Instead, we use a trenchless method, which is where we make a small hole right over the pipeline after finding it using infrared technology, and only dig there to reach the pipeline. For a sewer or water pipe inspection using a noninvasive sewer inspection camera in Oak Park, Il, call Emergency Sewer and Drain Experts at 708-934-4115 today.
Benefits of a Sewer Inspection Camera
There are many benefits on choosing sewer camera inspection services over manual inspections. In fact, many plumbing companies don’t even offer manual inspections anymore due to their high costs and lack of accuracy compared to using a sewer inspection camera!
- Noninvasive: Your entire yard won’t be dug up looking for the pipeline, because sewer inspection cameras are able to be maneuvered inside these small pipes.
- Cheaper: Trenching takes multiple days of backbreaking labor, which increases your overall repair price dramatically. With a sewer camera, one plumber can perform an inspection himself since only a small hole is dug instead of multiple ones all over your yard.
- More Precise: With the high-tech, crystal clear camera, these inspection cameras are able to spot even the most minute of cracks, clogs, and holes that could be missed by human eyes.
- Quicker: Only minutes are needed with a sewer camera inspection versus hours of digging for a trenching inspection. This saves you money on the hourly rate and labor.
If you are constantly having to call a plumber to repair that one pipe under the kitchen sink that always seems to spring a leak, consider getting a repipe service. Repiping is replacing an entire piping system with new pipes instead of constantly calling for repairs. This saves your hundreds of dollars over the long haul! Call Emergency Sewer and Drain Experts at 708-934-4115 for our repipe services in Oak Park, Il.
Benefits of Repiping a House
While pipes can last anywhere from 20 to 100 years, circumstances like natural disasters or the material of pipe can severely lesson the lifespan of your piping. For example, some old homes built before the 1970s used lead pipes due to their durability. The only problem is that the lead pipes filtered dangerous asbestos into your water, making repiping a necessary and immediate matter. PVC and copper pipes are affordable and durable, but for piping that will last a century, go with cast iron.
- Clearer water
- Better tasting water
- No more breakdowns of your pipes
- Better water pressure
- Lower water bills
Hydro Jetting Services
Sometimes a plunger is just not enough to remove a big clog. In fact, plungers can push the blockage even deeper into the pipes! If that occurs, then you would need professional clog removal. Emergency Sewer and Drain Experts can permanently remove that pesky clog with hydro jetting in Oak Park, Il. Call us at 708-934-4115 to schedule your appointment today.
How Does Hydro Jetting Work?
Hydro jetting is where powerful streams of pressurized water is used to clean and flush out pipes, sewage, and water lines. Commonly seen on rooftops for pressurized roof washing, the same tool is used to blast away all the grime that builds up inside your plumbing. Unlike chemical drain cleaners that actually erode your piping, hydro jet drain cleaning only uses water to break down built up grime, making it environmentally friendly.
Because hydro jetting is so powerful and effective at removing blockages, it can actually sometimes do more harm than good. If your pipes were already old, weak, cracked, or had a hole, then hydro jetting the pipes will only exacerbate it, wearing your pipes down even faster. If you don’t have any additional piping issues besides a clog, then residential hydro jetting is a great option. This high powered machine pumps out 1500 pounds of pressurized water per minute to blast away blockages like:
- Sediment buildup
- Tree roots
- Soap and shampoo buildup
- Grease and food blockages
- Sewage waste blockages
Backflow Prevention Services
Backflow is when the clean water in your home flows back into the public water supply, just like the name implies. While this may not seem so bad, as water is transferred through the pipes, it passes through things like your garden hose, or even your sewer lines. These all carry bacteria, chemicals, dirt, and sometimes even waste! If you are seeing brown dirty water coming out of your taps, or your water is tasting funny, call Emergency Sewer and Drain Experts at 708-934-4115 for backflow prevention services in Oak Park, Il.
What Does a Backflow Preventer Do?
A backflow preventer helps reverse backflow by acting as a water filter on your main water line. Whenever you turn on your tap for water, water is pulled from the main underground water line, and travels all the way to your sink. If there is a leak, a lot of dirt, waste, and bacteria is getting added to the pulled water. The backflow preventer is a like a combination of a siphon and a water treatment filter, and connects the branch line where the sewer and main water line meets. The most common reason for backflow is due to broken sewer or water lines, so getting a plumbing inspection to see if you need trenchless pipe repair is recommended. Call us today if you notice any of these problems, which could be signs of backflow:
- Bad smells in your drains
- Water produces bubbles as it drains
- Dirty water coming out of the tap
