Residential Sewer Line Inspection

Non-Invasive Leak Detection For Residential Sewer Lines

American Leak Detection™ provides reliable, non-invasive leak detection services using state-of-the-art technology. Since opening in 1974, we have revolutionized the industry with our streamlined methods and lasting solutions – doing it all without the destruction traditional leak detection methods cause. One of our popular methods includes our sewer camera inspection, through which we insert a camera into the pipe to detect any signs of leakage.

Sewer lateral symptoms include:

  • Foul sewer odor - Sewer odor is usually blocked by water in the drain traps or by vents that only allow airflow in one direction (out of the building). If the water in the drain trap evaporates, such as in an unused sink or bath, the sewer odors are free to rise up the drain into the building. If a vent pipe is not joined properly or is damaged, the outdoor air pressure could force sewer odors into your property.
  • An overgrown patch of grass in the yard - If your sewer lateral is faulty, it could be leaking water and waste into your yard. As the soil absorbs the additional moisture and nutrients, the growth of the surrounding area could significantly stand out in color and growth rate.
  • Backed-up sewer line - Sewer lines back up due to blockages. Blockages could include root intrusion, debris, grease buildup or a crushed pipe.

Video inspection in pipelines can help identify the following issues:

  • Root intrusion
  • Debris blockage
  • Bellied drain line
  • Leaking pipe joints
  • Cracked sewer lateral
  • Separated lateral joint
  • Deteriorated piping materials

With our sewer camera inspection, we can determine the exact location and cause of the leak, which helps keep repair costs low. By creating comprehensive reports, you have all the information you need to make an informed decision about your sewer system.
