Drain Inspection 101

Home » Drain Inspection 101

Most sewer pipes and drain lines are located deep underground. Inevitably, pipes corrode, crack and develop leaks over time. Before, the only way to have it fixed was to dig up trenches using heavy equipment and manual labor, which equates to days of disruption, headaches and expensive repair costs.

At Apollo, we have embraced trenchless technology, a no dig solution that eliminates the need for excavations altogether. A more accurate inspection leads to a 100% working solution that addresses drain problems.

No-Dig Diagnostic Procedure

It’s entirely possible to come up with a correct diagnosis when you have the right equipment without harming your property. Our technicians make use of a high-end camera that’s placed in any available access point, cleanout, or drain. The contraption can easily navigate through corners no matter the size of your sewer system. Live feed is sent to a monitor to give us real-time visual of any potential issues regarding your drain lines.

Camera Inspections Can Identify:

Corrosion and Rust. Pipes that were installed prior to the 1980s are largely made of galvanized steel, which is weak against rusting and corrosion.

Scaling. Scale is the result of mineral buildup as sewage passes through the pipes. Over time, this buildup can grow and turn into a full-blown emergency.

Tree Root Infiltration. Tree roots from nearby foliage can infiltrate the tiny cracks and seams and grow into it until flow is stopped.

Breaks or Cracks. Due to freezing, shifting soil and earthquakes.

Leaking Joints. Joint seals can break down over time, making raw sewage and water seep into the ground.

Poorly Installed Pipes. Improper installation can lead to problematic sewer lines that constantly back up.

At Apollo, our trained technicians will be able to see what’s causing the problem and act upon it immediately. We gather essential data, including the depth and length of pipe, its material, where the problem is located and other information to come up with the best solution for you. If a repair or replacement is needed, our trained technicians can do it without ever digging a single hole. Afterwards, a final video inspection is carried out to ensure a job well done.
