Just like anything else in this world, things can change in a New York minute. The key is to be prepared, be ready for any changes that need to be made. If you are prepared then you might even be able to prevent disasters that could cost millions of dollars to fix. Saving millions of dollars sure sounds nice, doesn’t it? This preventive maintenance is critical when it comes to sewers. There are five significant reasons why a sewer should be inspected:
- To determine what areas of your pipe are suffering from corrosion and how much there is. Sewer lines can stretch for hundreds of miles, and it can be difficult to determine where a blockage is forming or where it occurred.
- To prioritize areas for sewer cleaning and to determine the extent of cleaning required.
- To judge the effectiveness of a sewer cleaning project. After you have gone through and cleaned a pipe, sewer inspection allows you to determine how much of the sediment was actually removed. This is valuable resource in deciding whether another cleaning deployment is necessary to prevent a blockage.
- To use as a baseline for comparison over time. The baseline sewer inspection information is significant in that it allows analysis and visualization of changes within a pipe over time.
- To ensure the rehabilitation is occurring where it should and not being wasted on pipes that are in good shape.
