If you’ve watched any of HGTV’s popular shows about purchasing property, remodeling or anything involving real estate inspections, odds are you’ve seen this scene or one like it.
General Contractor – “You’ve got a big problem.”
Co-host – “What now?”
GC – “There is a broken sewer line.”
Co-host – “You have got to be kidding me.”
After a commercial break, the camera pans the side of the house and reveals a giant trench extending from the backyard to the street. What the television show doesn’t show you is the plumbing company called in to fix the problem.
Reality Plumbing with Kellermeier Plumbing, Inc.
While a broken sewer line can be costly to repair, having a broken sewer line doesn’t automatically mean your entire yard must be dug up. And when a trench is required for the repair, Kellermeier Plumbing does its best to keep the channel as small as possible. Rarely does a sewer pipe repair require the amount of digging you see on TV, and that’s due, in part, to Kellermeier’s use of the latest camera and locator technology.
Since 2011, Kellermeier Plumbing has been using cameras to inspect and make video recordings in drains and drain lines (including sewer drains). The camera and locator technology allow Kellermeier Plumbing’s licensed, bonded, and insured team members to pinpoint clogs or holes in sewer pipes without having to dig up the entire pipe.
When the problem is in the sewer line, Blaine Kellermeier says, “We can chase the camera line down in there until we find the problem. Then, when we find it, we can use the locator
to pinpoint where the camera is and either clean the pipe or dig it up and repair it.” With the video camera and locator technology that Kellermeier Plumbing uses, inspecting drains and sewer pipes is significantly easier than it used to be.
When you’ve made an offer on the house but before your contractor says ‘You’ve got a problem,” call Kellermeier Plumbing. Our camera and locator inspection services will help you avoid purchasing a home with broken lines.
