Camera Line Inspection Services

Sewer pipe inspection cameras are crucial in assessing a sewer line. Without them, a simple sewer line repair can become expensive and have extensive damage your property.

We have cameras able to inspect 1 inch pipes up to 2 foot diameter pipes. We have a large range of cameras!

Most homeowners will have an idea of how far out a problem would be in the sewer line. This information comes from the drain cleaning contractors that have written receipts and offer a footage of approximately how far the problem could be.

The main advantages to using a sewer inspection camera are:

  1. Ability to see the type of pipe and what the problem is or will be in the sewer line (Knowing what fittings and pipe is needed to fix the problem)
  2. How far out the problem is from the assess point (Less damage to property)
  3. The depth of the sewer line (crucial to giving a competitive price)
  4. Location (Less damage to your problem)
  5. Recording for your insurance company.

 

Here is an example from a residential sewer line that is Orangeburg pipe. The pipe is tar and paper and over the years, the pipe becomes warped and deformed allowing for roots and sections of pipe to break.

 

Here is another video inspection of  4 inch cast iron pipe. The customer was having back ups and was getting a sewer cleaning once a month. The drain cleaner wrote that approx. 13 feet out was where he was clearing the sewer line for the back up. On the top right of the screen you will see a footage counter showing how far we are into the sewer pipe we are. We found from inspecting the sewer line, there was a fitting installed incorrectly that was causing flow to go backwards up another pipe which was causing build up and lead to a back up.

 

Here is a sewer inspection of a clay lateral that has major root infiltration. This sewer line was in a emergency condition. The roots had cracked the clay pipe and was collapsing. We did a trenchless sewer line repair to remove the damaged clay and replace with HDPE pipe.


Pipe Bursting

This is one technique we have to replace a sewer line on your property without major damage. We are able to replace a sewer line over 200 feet long without disturbing the ground atop of the pipe. There as major advantages to pipe bursting:

  1. This technique is cost effective, less cost on the homeowner after the line is replaced
    • We will not excavate your driveway, sidewalk, hardscape, and we will also go under trees and other major utilities.
  2. Your old sewer line is removed and a new, stronger, joint less pipe will be installed.
  3. You will be back in service much faster.
    • We can install over 150 feet of pipe in one day. That means less time that you have to wait to use your shower and toilets. This is very convenient.
    • Excavating would take a couple days, leaving you in a hotel or in-laws house to wait for the install to be done.

Root Treatment

Dutra is experienced concerning how to treat and prevent roots from entering your sewer line as a top sewer company in Bergen County NJ. Our root treatment service involves a three-part process:

  • Assessment of the existing or potential root infiltration into your lines
  • Execute a plan to address your roots problem
  • Follow up to make sure your sewer line is working properly.

Roots can cause major collapses in your sewer line. Once roots get inside your sewer line, if the roots expands within the joint of a pipe, the pipe has to crack in order to allow the growth of the root. With the chemicals used, they will push roots away from your sewer line and increase the lifespan of your sewer line.
