From getting your oil changed to getting your teeth cleaned, inspections and routine maintenance are a part of life. Generally speaking, people recognize the value of investing in this type of upkeep — especially when it’s a service that protects an expensive purchase, such as a car.
However, people often neglect a much more expensive item that’s literally underfoot – their property’s plumbing system. When it comes to pipes, out of sight often means out of mind, until a plumbing disaster strikes. However, just because you can’t see something doesn’t mean it’s OK to ignore it. In fact, it’s an extra reason to be mindful of problems that may arise.
Like an annual checkup with your doctor, sewer line inspections can detect the early red flags that something isn’t right with your Kahului, Maui property’s plumbing.
It may come as a surprise to you that lush vegetation is one of the most significant threats to a sewer system. As they seek out water and nutrients, tree roots can grow around sewer pipes and can even fully invade pipes, blocking water flow. Eventually, overgrown root systems can cause major plumbing issues such as sewage backups.
Sewer problems are often a worst-case scenario for property owners throughout the Kahului, Maui area. Nobody wants the hassle of dealing with catastrophic and costly property damage or a lengthy repair process. And while some insurance policies do cover cleanup and restoration, it’s unusual for them to pay to repair or rehabilitate the sewer line or damaged property.
Businesses especially have a great deal riding on the health of their sewage system. Not only do business owners want to avoid the costs associated with sewer repairs, but it’s also critical for them to retain valuable customers. Nobody wants the lingering smell or reputation associated with a sewer line problem.
Plumbers have a secret weapon for defeating clogs: the video camera. A sewer camera inspection is a minimally invasive way to determine the source of sewer line problems without causing further damage to the pipe network.
All Aloha Plumbing’s video sewer inspection procedure relies on a small, waterproof camera connected to a flexible cable. As our technicians guide the camera cable through your Kahului, Maui pipes, they can view its progress in real time on a monitor at ground level.
The inspection will be thorough and deliberate as our team notes any problem areas they detect. The goal of a pipe inspection is to create a list of immediate risks, as well as future problem areas that are beginning to emerge. At the end of the inspection, we’ll review the results with you. If the inspection uncovered any threats that need urgent attention, our team will recommend the best solution on the spot.
Yes, pipe inspections do cost money, but it’s a minor expense compared to the thousands of dollars of Kahului, Maui property damage a leak or sewage backup can cause. It’s also a smart strategy to schedule inspections regularly because it doesn’t take long for accumulated pipe buildup to take its toll on a sewer system. Sewer inspections are a worthwhile investment that saves you money in the long run.
