As a business owner, if you own not just your main commercial building but also the property it's located on, you are of course responsible for the upkeep of everything on that property including your sewer or water pipes. You probably already do a good job of keeping up with inspections for the plumbing inside your building, but when's the last time you got an inspection of the pipes in the ground outside your facility? Sewer video inspections can be a valuable tool that can provide a business owner like you with important information. Here are just some of the reasons why you might want to contact a sewer video expert today.
Quickly Figure Out Where the Leak, Clog, or Other Problem Is Located
Is your building experiencing an issue with a backup or clog? If it has become clear that the problem is not within the plumbing inside your building, chances are good that one of your sewer pipes might have something bad going on. A sewer video inspection can help you quickly locate the source of the problem so you can get it fixed and restore your property to like-new condition as soon as possible.
Monitor the Condition of Your Pipes
All plumbing will need to be replaced at some point, but commercial-grade plumbing or sewer pipes should last for a long time. That said, it can be helpful to do an annual inspection via video of your sewers in order to ensure that the condition is not degrading faster than it should be. If you notice additional signs of wear and tear or degradation, this may allow you to bring in professional help to find and fix the problem before it gets worse and costs you even more money.
Have Documentation to Compare Against for the Insurance Company
When you get a sewer video inspection, you can request a copy of the video for your records. This video will show what the sewer is supposed to look like when it's in good condition. By doing this, you will have valuable documentation that you can send to the insurance company if there is ever a major issue with your sewers that needs to be fixed. The insurance agency can then compare the video of before and after whatever the incident was that caused damage to your pipes.
You probably don't spend a ton of time thinking about your sewer or waste management pipes, but a regular video inspection can be beneficial and save you money now and in the future.
