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. If you want to avoid future complications, check out our sewer cleaning service.

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.

After repeated attempts by amateurs to fix an issue with my washing machine, they came out and removed the old hook up connection and replaced it with a new, less complicated outlet box. Once completed the washer still was not working; they took the time to diagnose the issue and were able to resolve the problem. Very pleased and will hire again.

Excellent customer service! Exceptional and friendly service and great price! Was quite a bit later than the appointment time of 10 AM but I did tell them any time was fine [i was in no rush]. They did call me a number of times to inform me as to when they would be here. David came, introduced himself [very nice]. Had to replace some parts inside the toilet which I already had and reset the toilet [as the bolts anchoring the toilet to the floor rusted out [toilet wobbling]. Replaced wax ring and bolts! Toilet now good as new! Will definitely use Ben Manis Plumbing in the future !

As a Realtor I sold a house to a young couple, where the seller was supposed to remedy the water pressure. After settlement, the water pressure was still low so I sent Ben Manis over. Ben found that the water meter was missing! The home inspector and seller's plumber both missed it. Needless to say, the water authority was there within 20 minutes to install a meter. If it weren't for Ben, the buyers could have been sold a $1500 water pressure system and would have possibly faced fines and back bills when the water department finally caught up. Honesty, integrity and attention to detail are hard to find. No one is perfect but Manis Plumbing is the best there is.

The plumber was very friendly and knowledgeable. I had a stopped kitchen sink which has a garbage disposal on it. He explained in details about my concerns about how garbage disposals work, and also explained what should and should not go in them. He accessed the problem and within a few minutes he had unclogged my drain. And, he cleaned my sink out which he didn't have to. I am very happy with Ben Manis Plumbing service as well as the plumbing technician, Eric Mendez.

Christopher of Ben Manis appeared on time, was extremely polite and efficient, explained what needed to be done and then proceeded to complete the repair. He cleaned up afterwards and left the area in excellent condition. I would highly recommend this company, and particularly, Christopher most heartily.
