What the testing of a sewer system can not do

Given the many benefits of an inspection by a sewer camera, the camera can show some drawbacks inside the sewer pipes. The sewer camera can’t detect leaks one thing.

Although they are helpful in leak monitoring as secondary tools, a sewer camera itself can not be used to locate a leak or decide whether you leak—many of the reasons why an inspection of the sewer camera can not detect a leak.

A leak is a water that passes through a crack, hole or break from the drainages. Since the camera is inside the tube, it can’t see outside the tube. This makes it difficult to detect if anything leaks outside the pipe.

While you may think about something like a fall, a hole or a spill, it’s important to note that with all the garbage and waste that usually move through the pipe, it can be challenging to say if there is an emitting leak based just on what you see on the monitor. The panorama shows the camera’s view or apertures what the camera is “doing.”

PVC or cast iron are the most common sewer tubes. They are both large pipes with a wall. Therefore, even anything like a crack, a break, or a hole does not move through the pipe because the pipes are thick.

Water Heater Lifespan and Life Expectancy

Like any other appliance, water heaters do not last forever.  The average lifespan or life expectancy is about 8 to 12 years, although this may vary based the location and design of the unit, past maintenance on the unit, and the water quality in your area. Proper preventative maintenance can help extend the life of your water heater, but eventually something will go wrong.  What problems can be easily repaired and when should you just buy a new water heater?

What is a hydrostatic sewer line inspection?

Hydro (water) Static (not moving) simply means “standing water”.  This means the test does not use high pressure. Unlike testing gas cylinders or boilers, the only “pressure” on your drain system is that from gravity of the water in the drain. The hydrostatic sewer line inspection cannot actually cause a leak.  It can only detect a leak.
