Sewer Inspections

It’s not often that a homeowner wants to see what the inside of their drainage pipes looks like. We know what flows through them, and we’d rather not see it as it leaves. That being said, it is fairly often that a homeowner who is running into constant trouble with clogging or smells of sewer gas can benefit from seeing what the inside of their drainage pipes look like. Aside from wanting to understand the cause of any issues, sewer inspections can also be valuable, and sometimes required, during the sale or purchase of a home.

See what's on the inside

A sewer inspection with Paramount Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning can paint a clear picture of the condition of a home’s drainage lines and can help generate answers as to why a home’s plumbing system is clogging on a regular basis or why certain areas of the home always have a sewer gas smell. Sewer inspections are conducted with a specialized camera attached to a cable. Using this cable and camera duo, we can get an inside look at just what might be causing these ongoing issues. By inserting the cable into the drain line our technicians can actually see, and record, what is in the line, what condition the line is in and what type of pipe it is.

After a clogged line is cleared, especially when the clog was within the home’s main sewer line, it is highly recommended the sewer line be inspected. By inspecting the line, we can identify many possible issues or causes for clogs such as a crack in the sewer pipe, a belly, or low spot, or even tree roots that have invaded your sewer lines and caused the back up to begin with.

If your sewer pipe has one of the aforementioned problems that are causing consistent clogs or sink holes in your yard, the only way to prevent the clog is by replacing sections or the length of the sewer line.

Diagnosing problems with accuracy

Aside from giving us the ability to see within your drain lines and identify these issues, our sewer cameras are equipped with technology to allow us to record the amount of feet the camera head has traveled within the sewer so that we can identify exactly where your sewer problem is. This ability to pinpoint the problem area can save you, the homeowner, money, time and a huge headache by allowing us the opportunity to replace or repair the problem spot on your sewer as opposed to digging up the entire line and making a mess of your yard. In the event your homes sewer line needs complete replacement, the team at Paramount Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning is here to help you with that as well.

Here at Paramount Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning our goal is to offer our customers the best service while remaining affordable. In order to do that we are constantly upgrading our technology and machinery. The old way of replacing a sewer line would be to dig up a large trench from the home to the street causing a muddy mess and a huge headache when it comes to replacing grass, shrubbery or plants that were removed in the process. As part of our goal to offer homeowners the best and the latest, our company has expanded to offer a new solution, trenchless sewer repair.

Trenchless sewers

It used to be that if you needed a sewer or water line replaced, it was necessary to dig a large ditch from the house to the street, sometimes in excess of 4 feet wide. After replacing the damaged sewer or water line we would then need to backfill any dirt and cover the area that was excavated. Aside from the mess of mud, this process also left homeowners with an unsightly area in their yard while they waited for the grass and greenery to regrow. While the traditional method of replacing sewer or water lines is still applicable for certain situations, our company has expanded to offer our customers the option of trenchless pipe repair, also known as pipe bursting.

How does it work?

This method of sewer or water line replacement allows Paramount Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning to replace your water or sewer line while greatly reducing the mess and damage to your yard that can come with the traditional methods. While the process of trenchless pipe repair involves fancy terminology, large machines and plenty of math, we can boil it down to a more streamlined explanation. The reader’s digest version of trenchless technology involves a cable which is inserted into the existing water or sewer line, attached to a new pipe and then that cable is pulled through the existing pipe and brings along with it the new pipe. While not available in every scenario the option of trenchless pipe repair can offer the homeowners a money saving alternative to the traditional method of sewer or water line repair.

Pleased to offer this new trenchless option to our customers, the team at Paramount Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning continues to be the go-to for all of your sewer repair and inspection needs!
