Diagnosing Your Sewer Issues With Video Camera Inspections

Sewer line repairs and replacements start with an inspection. A camera inspection helps assess the severity and underlying cause of your clogged, leaking, or deteriorating sewer line.

The inspection process entails inserting a pinhole video camera into your sewer line to get a close-up look at the problem. Using live footage from the camera feed, we’ll examine your sewer line to identify the root cause of the issue and advise whether repair or replacement is required.

What Causes Sewer Blockages?

Grease, animal fat, and oil could harden and build up in your sewer line over time, inhibiting the flow of water. Foreign objects, such as animal bones, cotton swabs, hair, and trash, could also cause the pipe to become blocked. It is important to put these items into a trash can instead of down the drain. Tree roots can also cause a partial or complete sewer blockage.

In order to help prevent this from happening, you should avoid planting trees or bushes near a sewer line. Our sewer repair specialists will perform a detailed inspection to determine the source of the blockage. We will then use efficient techniques to repair the issue so you can have a fully functional sewer system.

Sewer Line Repair & Replacement in Massachusetts

We are experts in trenchless sewer repair. This means we can repair your pipes without digging up your yard and destroying your garden or landscaping. Heritage Home Services uses trenchless sewer repair in Massachusetts: cured-in-place-pipe lining (CIPP).

Traditional Sewer Line Replacement

Plumbers use traditional sewer line replacement to dig up around pipes, remove them, and replace cracked or damaged pipes. Although replacing pipelines will destroy the excavated area, some sewer line issues can only be fixed by using this method.

Traditional sewer line replacement allows Heritage to be thorough as we evaluate the work done after replacing your pipes. As a result, we can ensure everything is in the right place and won’t break down the line.
