Main Water Line Locating with Inspection

It can be stressful if you’re having a problem with your main water line, because you cannot see the problem for yourself. You may be suspecting that the problem is in the main, because you’re not seeing damage inside of your home. Beehive Plumbing in Utah can help you by diagnosing the problem without needing to dig up your street. We can send a camera down to find out what the problem is whether it happens to be clogged pipes, tree roots, or something else causing the blockage.

Signs and Symptoms of a Water Line Problem

If you’re noticing that your pipes are noisy, that your water is contaminated, or that your water pressure is reduced, you may have a water line obstruction. This can also cause your basement to flood if a break occurs close to your home. Serious flooding can cause structural damage or damage to your personal property.

Signs of a break include:

  • Problems with water drainage
  • Water is discolored
  • You’re experiencing water backflow
  • Your yard has standing water
  • The intrusion of tree roots

If you suspect a break, shut the water off to the main valve to stop the flow from its source and contact Beehive Plumbing right away.

Locating Your Main Water Line

The experts at Beehive Plumbing will use an electronic device to locate the exact position of your water line. They are also able to find leaks by charging the line with nitrogen.

Water Line Inspections by Beehive Plumbing

The professionals at Beehive Plumbing will insert a camera designed to transmit information in real time into the pipes that travel under your home. This will allow them to see what is happening below the ground and to inspect the sewer lines to see what is going on.

Benefits of Sending a Camera Down

Saves Images- The images that are obtained can be permanently saved to refer back to if needed.

Accuracy- The main water line inspection includes radio transmission capability that will determine the depth and the location of the problem when it is found. This will help your technician to accurately solve and to diagnose the cause of the obstruction of your pipeline. The technicians at Beehive Plumbing will not be doing any guesswork!

Easy to detect the problem- Being able to see inside the line means that the experts at Beehive Plumbing will be able to go deep underground, looking to see if there are tree roots creating a blockage, and they can see if any part of the pipe has corroded, been broken, whether there are punctures, or if any misalignment has occurred. It can also detect the presence of leaks and the buildup of grease. 

Once the work of correcting the problem has occurred, Utah Beehive’s service technicians will repeat the inspection to verify that everything has been taken care of. If your drain repeatedly backs up, gets clogged, or drains slowly, an inspection using the video camera is highly recommended.
