Sewer Video Inspection in Tacoma

Minimize the possibility of expensive repairs and damage in the future with a video inspection of your sewer line and drain pipes. As a matter of fact, in the Tacoma area, it is highly suggested that you obtain a sewer inspection before buying a home. A good rule of thumb is that if your house was built before 1980 and the sewer pipes have not been replaced, they probably need to be.
A video inspection is the most effective and thorough method of discovering the condition of your sewer pipes. Harts Services will send our respectful and experienced technicians to complete a skillful inspection and inform you of our findings and all available options.

How Does It Work?
A camera inspection is done by using three pieces of equipment:
The rigid see-snake is an extremely durable reel-and-camera system that allows us to pinpoint problems underground. It has a flexible camera head, as well as a fiberglass-reinforced pushrod so it can execute multiple 90-degree angles and travel as far as 325 feet. Its friction-reducing design allows for maximum push with minimal effort. The camera head is also equipped with self-leveling technology, which keeps the image upright as it navigates through turns and fittings. As the snake is pushed down into the pipe, it delivers a clear, sharp image to a G-vision monitor.
G-vision is a high-quality, lightweight way to monitor what is happening in your pipes. When coupled with the rigid see-snake, it is a surefire way to catch any obstructed or damaged areas that may exist underground. The monitor is mounted easily onto the camera reel and can record directly to a thumb drive, hard drive, iPhone, or iPad for later viewing. In addition, an LCD screen and internal battery allow for up to four hours of full-color video inspection time that can be viewed even in direct sunlight. When an internal problem is spotted on the screen, the trouble area is found using a rigid locator.
The rigid locator is, as it sounds, a fast and easy way to locate exactly where a see-snake has spotted an affected or compromised area. This piece of equipment is extremely helpful, as it is able to guide you down the snake line as well as measure the depth of the camera head. When used along with the see-snake and G-vision monitor, it allows for a quick and accurate diagnosis of pipes with no need to excavate the entire line.
With these tools and technologies, our Tacoma sewer and drain technicians are able to find and repair damages in specific areas without having to dig up the entire pipe.
We can find and repair the problem without undue damage to your property or sewer line. Schedule a video inspection in Tacoma by calling Harts Services at (253) 285-1771.
