How Are Perimeter Drain Camera Inspections Done?
Please note in most cases, a camera inspection can be done without interruption to plants and landscaping. The approach to doing drain camera inspections is straightforward. The inspection gives us information to analyze the problem quickly and map out a cost-effective approach to the correct solution.
- We disconnect the downspout so we can access your drain tile drainage system
- The next step is to insert the camera head and line into the drain entrance (The line is fed through the drain tile system and the camera displays the information on a high-resolution monitor so the trained technician can identify problem spots.
- The camera gives us a high-resolution view (that we can share with you) of the drain and any blockages that may be preventing the drain tile system from working properly.
- We can now communicate our findings and actually share that information with you so we can map out a cost-effective solution for your particular circumstances.
What are Some of the Problems that Video Camera Might Detect?
The interesting thing about the camera is it takes the guesswork out of finding the solution to your drainage problem. The drain tiles may be compromised as a result of any one of the following.
- Drain tiles are crushed or badly cracked.
- Complete sections are sagging, pooling, and separating.
- Tree roots were plugging the drain tile.
- Drain tile plugged with debris.
Each case is different and it is possible to fix the problem section of the drain tile and just clean and flush the rest of the system. As mentioned each house is different and our goal is always to repair the problem as cost-effectively as possible.
