We Conduct a Sewer Lateral Cleanout with a Private Camera

A sewer lateral is an underground pipe. The pipe connects a residence or business to the main sewer line in your area. Often, local governments consider either part or all of the line to be the property, and therefore the responsibility, of the business or homeowner. The private-owned underground section of the lateral is often taken for granted until a problem arises, like raw sewage backing up your pipes that need a cleanout. There is a range of things that can block your sewer system, including tissues, foreign objects, diapers, and cat litter. What’s more, oil and grease and poor installation can all result in the pipes clogging up. Ben Manis Plumbing uses an inspection camera to quickly determine the problem and then fix it in compliance with local regulations.

Let Us Use Our Camera for a Thorough Sewer Lateral Inspection on Your Sewer Line

During a sewer lateral inspection, our qualified and friendly plumbers will use professional plumbing equipment, such as a line camera to conduct an inspection. We use the equipment to help us locate damage, clogs, and leaks, and also to test any areas of concern. We sometimes use a plumbing snake, too, to break through a clog, and then use a hydro-jetter to power-spray the debris and grease away. With wear and tear, the lines on your real estate are sure to clog, crack, or develop holes. Give us a call to help take care of your pipes.

Municipality or Township Required Lateral Inspections

More and more local municipalities and townships are requiring homeowners to obtain an inspection of their sewer lateral when selling or refinancing their home. This process allows these townships to minimize unwanted additional inflow to waste treatment centers by having homeowners identify and correct inflow and intrusion problems. Ben Manis Plumbing has technicians certified by the National Sewer Services Companies organization, the premier organization in the field, that will use closed-circuit television technology to video inspect your lateral and provide the necessary documentation to your municipality or township. Our plumbers can also use these recordings to correct any problems that may be identified.
