Ryebrook, New York Sewer Pipe Inspection Services
After suffering from an extended drought period, Ryebrook, as most of Greenwich, has been enjoying some very welcomed rain. Although it will take some time for water reservoirs to replenish, being able to climb out of the “abnormally dry” classification is great news for every Ryebrook resident.
However, one thing you should now consider is having your home’s plumbing system inspected. You probably would never think that drought conditions can be a risk to the water pipes and sewer line in your house, but it sure is.
The Problem with Trees
The problem here are trees; or more exactly, tree roots. Depending on the type of tree, its roots can represent up to 40% of its biomass. These roots grow in all directions, desperately looking for any moisture.
So, guess that happens when they find your pipes? Once they locate any tiny crack or loose joint, they penetrate the tube and thrive in the humid environment. If they are able to get to your sewer line they will also have plenty of nutrients to feed on. These roots will continue growing, eventually clogging up the pipe, or bursting it.
Keeping Pipes in Check
Pipes have an average life expectancy, and as they age they are prone to cracks and leaks. If you have an old home, taking care of its plumbing system is vital. But since these pipes are buried underground, and covered by walls and floors, it is not possible to just take a look at them to verify their condition, and that is where we can help you.
Pipe inspections in Ryebrook, NY are not what they used to be. Back in the old days, when a homeowner had any plumbing issues it meant having to physically access the pipes until the exact issue was found, tearing up walls and ceilings. Today we use the most advanced technology and can do pipe inspections remotely, with the help of a video camera.
This camera sends a live video feed in high resolution and can travel through any narrow water pipes or the sewer line. Our skilled technician watches this feed in an external monitor and takes note of any problems he finds, as well as their location. Once we know exactly what is going on inside the pipes, we can make a plan on how to fix them. Cracked and broken pipes can be repaired with an epoxy liner, damaged sewer lines can be replaced, and obstructions or clogs can be blasted away with high-pressured water.
Get Your Pipes Inspected ASAP!
A pipe inspection is also recommended when you are planning to buy a house. Even if the seller tells you that the plumbing is working fine, a proper examination can detect issues that can be solved before they grown and create larger damage. It is always much easier to patch up a crack than to replace a broken pipe, and it can also save you a lot of money.
