There are a few factors that may determine how often Jacksonville property owners should call Atlantic Pipe Services for drain inspections. Read on as we go over the biggest factors to think about when deciding if it is necessary to call us for sewer camera inspection services in Jacksonville, FL.

The Age of the Pipes

The age of the pipe system is a primary consideration when determining the need for a sewer video inspection. Older sewer pipes or those installed 40 or so years ago, should be inspected once a year, as they are much more likely to be damaged by tree root intrusion and other issues that tend to develop with time.

If there are older pipes on the property you’re overseeing, a yearly pipe camera inspection will help our team spot potential or existing problems before they turn into major issues.

Schedule an Inspection Every One to Two Years

No matter how old (or new) your sewer pipes are, our team suggests scheduling a routine drain inspection every year or so. We make this recommendation because some sewer pipe problems, such as internal buildup, tree root growth, and debris accumulation may go undetected until there’s a serious issue—such as sewer backups, slow drains, and persistent clogs.

To reduce the risk of plumbing problems, be sure to schedule routine pipe video inspection services.

Have the Pipes Inspected Before Buying or Selling the Property

We also suggest scheduling a pipe video inspection before making a sale or a purchase. Documented results from a plumbing inspection will give potential buyers an additional layer of reassurance. Similarly, if you are the buyer of the facility, a sewer inspection will provide peace of mind when signing a purchase contract.
