Silver Spring, Maryland Trenchless Sewer Repair
Depending on where you live in Silver Spring, you may have plumbing problems resulting from the age of your underground pipes. It is common and at SPT Pipe we know exactly how to fix the situation. We are also experts in the use of trenchless technology we can remedy any sewer line problem without disturbing your property.
How We Find the Problem
The first thing we do when we get to your location is find the lateral pipe. The lateral is the pipe that runs from your house or business to join the municipal main line that runs along the street. Typically the underground lateral runs under a sidewalk, driveway or some landscaping features in your yard. Once we find the location of the lateral we will dig down to the connections. The holes we dig are not very big and are only intended for us to access the connection points. After we open one of the connections we insert a tiny camera.
How The Camera Helps Us
The small video camera sends a feed to an on site technician who monitors it and watches for some kind of irregularity. The quality of the video feed is very good which provides us with an accurate way to identify and diagnose any kind of problem taking place in the lateral. You could say the camera gives us eyes inside the pipe and because it does we do not have to dig the pipe up in order to examine it. The size of the camera allows us to move it up or down the length of the lateral in order to get a better look at something that may be happening inside that underground pipe.
What the Camera Can Show Us
Old underground pipes tend to age and show signs of that through different kinds of apparent damage. Depending on the material your lateral was made from there could be leaks, cracks or possibly even a cave in where a portion of the old pipe has just deteriorated enough to collapse. Regardless of what kind of damage exists in your buried lateral we have the trenchless sewer repair solution.
