Take Care of your Bathroom with Plumbing Inspection

Filed under: Brooklyn sewer inspections

Bathroom drains and pipes in Brooklyn homes are regularly used and subjected to not only water, but dirt, grime, hair and soap and detergent lather as well. In the absence of regular sewer and drain inspection overtime, these can become clogged causing damage to bathroom plumbing.

Benefits of plumbing inspection

  • A plumbing inspection by a reputed company like Vigilante in Brooklyn can help detect any issues with your bathroom drains or pipes. An early warning can stop a lot of damage to your bathroom. This will also help you save money resulting from repairs of the extensive damage that might occur if minor plumbing issues are left unchecked over an extended period of time.
  • A sewer and drain inspection can reveal any small issue within your bathroom plumbing that might escalate in the future.
  • Sewer and drain inspections done in regular intervals can detect any cracks in your bathroom tiles, which if left unchecked can further crack the tiles. This will result in you replacing the tiles, which is a time consuming process.
  • Plumbing inspections can reveal any mold growth in bathroom drains and pipes, which can be halted before mold growth takes over the bathroom. Mold can also grow on damp bathroom walls. Dampness in bathroom walls can be from any cracks in the tiles or walls or from leaks from geysers or pipes.
  • Clogging of pipes from hair and grease can be prevented through plumbing inspections. If left unchecked, hair inside the drains can cause severe damage to the entire drainage system of your house through interconnected plumbing.

The Benefits of Regular Sewer Line Inspections

Filed under: Brooklyn sewer inspections, Brooklyn sewer line inspections

Sewer line inspection is important

In any home, sewer lines are of the utmost importance as they carry away the waste generated in the household in a safe and clean manner. Cooking, bathing , cleaning and other such everyday activities generate a lot of waste and they cannot be completed if there are no sewer lines in the house. This is why if you live in Brooklyn and want to avoid problems in your sewer system or sewer line, you need to get sewer line inspection services performed regularly. With proper sewer line inspection, you can avoid major sewer line disasters and avoid expensive repair and clean up bills.

Why you should get regular sewer line inspection services

Probably the most important benefit of sewer line inspection is that you can spot signs of trouble in your sewer lines early on. Clogs can occur in the main sewer line or in any one of the secondary sewer lines. With proper and regular inspections, you can catch clogs just when they are forming so that they can be cleaned up and complete clogs removed. These days, video inspection is used for proper sewer line inspection. This also allows you to check pipes and other components for cracks and other defects. In places like Brooklyn where it can get really cold, checking for cracks can prevent pipe bursts. You can also see if roots are forming in the sewer lines.

Get sewer lines inspected as soon as possible

Sewer line inspection must be done periodically. If you haven’t had your sewer lines inspected in a long time, then call a plumber today.

Importance of Sewer Line Inspection

Clogged toilets can be inconvenient to use, especially when the water begins backing up. If such a problem occurs, when nobody is around, the damage caused can be severe. You might have to replace your carpet and flooring, not due to the wetness alone, but also because of the stench. This stench has the ability to cause illnesses, leaving your family at risk. A regular sewer line inspection can help you save a lot of money, by identifying problems that can turn into major long-term issues if unattended.

Benefits of Sewer Line Inspection

Sewer line inspections can help you avoid damages to your property. You can detect issues before they turn into larger and more expensive worries. If you’re selling your Brooklyn home, no buyer will be interested if they find out that your property has sewer line problems. If the lines were installed several years ago, there could have been some movement over the years which would have shifted them over time. So, it would be necessary to carry out a sewer line inspection to check if they are aligned in the right manner.

Maintenance of Sewer Lines

After having your pipes inspected, maintenance checks must be carried out regularly to ensure that your pipes last for a long time. Regular inspection will see to it that no new problems occur, and if they do, they can be detected and diagnosed immediately. There are several professional services that undertake sewer pipe inspection for affordable prices. So make sure your sewer system is checked and maintained from time to time.

Brooklyn- Keeping Your Sewer Healthy and Blockage Free

Filed under: Brooklyn sewer inspections

The sewers and drains running from your Brooklyn home will occasionally experience problems. When you do see the signs of a sewer and drain problem, the first step you need to take is to have them inspected right away. That will determine what exactly the problem is, to enable us at Vigilante to fix it before it becomes more serious—and more costly to you.


Some of the symptoms of a problem with your sewer and/or drain include the following:

Foul sewer odor may indicate a problem with your vent pipe.

Backed-up sewer line may be due to a blockage, caused by root intrusion, debris, grease build-up, or a crushed pipe.

Overgrown patch of grass in yard. This may be the sign of a sewage leaks. The sewage is feeding or fertilizing your grass, and so it grows out of proportion to the grass in the rest of your yard.

If you are seeing any of these problems on your Brooklyn property, you should have your sewer and drain lines inspected. They may indicate any of the following conditions: a crack(s) in your sewer line, a bellied drain line, a joint that has separated or is leaking, debris blocking your lines, the intrusion of a tree root, or deterioration of your pipes.

But the inspection won’t much as you might think. Modern technology has given us an inspection process that is relatively painless and affordable: a pipeline video inspection.

If you see if any of these signs, give Vigilante a call at (718) 530-0404

Brooklyn Sewer Line Inspections

Filed under: Brooklyn Plumber, Brooklyn sewer inspections, Brooklyn sewer line inspections, Brooklyn Tankless Water Heater Installation, Drain Cleaning, Leaky Pipes, new york city plumber, Piping, Plumbing, Plumbing History, Plumbing Repairs

If you’re buying an old home in Brooklyn, or you want to keep your sewer lines running smoothly, you need to have them inspected regularly. Why?

The trees on the street near your sewer lines can grow right into your sewer lines. They crawl into tiny openings and expand in the sewer line, latching on to debris such as grease or eggshell waste.

All by themselves, such debris can build up in your sewer line and cause backups. As a result, the pipe may be damaged and require excavation to fix the problem.

If you have a home built in the 1950s, it probably has sewer lines made from tar paper called Orangeburg pipes. These disintegrate and collapse over time.

How can we inspect your sewer lines? We just attach a camera to a snake, and take pictures of the interior of your sewer line, to see what damage, clogs, and debris have accumulated. We can then make repairs. This way you can avoid a costly replacement in the future and address problems that might continue to grow if left untreated!Our goal is to make life easier for you, and we do that with efficient and reliable plumbing repairs in Brooklyn.

So call us today to schedule your
 sewer inspection! (718) 530-0404
