What is the one thing homeowner’s dread the most? You guessed it! Unexpected, expensive plumbing repairs top the list of homeowner nightmares. While anyone who owns a home for a decent length of time will experience a plumbing problem or two, the good news is that these incidents don’t have to wipe out your savings.
Repair costs for damaged sewer lines, broken pipes, and slab leaks can add up quickly. According to HomeAdvisor, the average cost for sewer repair in the United States is $2,426. That’s not pocket change by any means! The ideal way to avoid this expense is to catch problems in their infancy. The problem with this easy solution is that sometimes the source of the problem doesn’t make itself known until the situation is out of hand. At Rooter Hero Plumbing, we recommend that homeowners have their pipes and sewer lines regularly inspected for blockages or cracks that could cause major issues in the future. The best way to do this is with a video camera drain inspection. This service is available for interior or exterior pipes. How does it work? A tiny camera is threaded through the pipes and delivers video images to a monitor in real-time. Both the plumber and the homeowner get an immediate, up close and personal view of what is happening inside the home’s plumbing system. What happens after the inspection? If clogs are found or other problems detected, the plumber will make a recommendation for repairs or drain cleaning services like hydro-jetting. Pipes that are free of obstructions will get a clean bill of health, and the homeowner can rest easy knowing that there are not hidden threats in their plumbing system. The cost for video camera inspections is inexpensive when compared with the cost of pipe and sewer line repair or replacement. Many times the service is complimentary when you schedule regular drain cleaning service for your kitchen or bathroom plumbing.
