Hansen’s Plumbing has the sophisticated equipment ready to inspect your house! We utilize a multi-step process that will ensure up-to-date plumbing for you and your family.
Want a play-by-play of your sewer system? We are able to offer you the footage. Our sewer video inspections, create a system that offers complete visibility to any plumbing damage both above and below the surface. The video records a 360 view of any detected clogs and leaks so we can go back and analyze the scene with a greater lens.
What’s in it for you? Here’s what the sewer video inspections can detect:
If your plumbing is misaligned, infiltration will occur from the ground work. The extra wastewater will enter and erode the soil, leading to pressure build up and pipelines to collapse.
If there is a crack, hole, or separation in your pipe, tree roots or other organic plant material can enter. The warm flow of water through drainage pipes create condensation. Tree roots seek the moisture, so the smallest opening will allow the roots to enter and grow inside of the pipe. If left unnoticed, the tiny roots scale into larger roots; causing shifting root movement to lead to pipe failure.
When there is a low area, flat or belly spot, the pipe ends up holding excessive water after the flow has ended its cycle. The pooling water can build up debris which can lead to a backup or blockage.
Cross bores occur from directional drilling work. If a natural gas line is cut or configured simultaneously when plumbers are unclogging a sewer line, a fire or explosion can be generated from the unintentional cross contact.
Not all objects are meant to go down the drains. If they prevent water from passing through the sewer lines, a blockage, clog, or backup of water and flooding will occur.
The first step to solving the problem is becoming aware of it. Thanks to the sewer video inspection, we get to the root of the problem and then provide you with different options to correct your sewer lines.
Still don’t think that you need an inspection? We promise that you’ll thank later.

Water makes up approximately 70% of our entire body, so it is important to keep it in good condition. As plumbing professionals, we are first to know about water safety, but we want you to have that quality assurance all year round.
Plumbing services work to eliminate backflow. A backflow condition can occur if the pressure inside your home increases higher than the incoming water pressure, from a booster pump system for example, or if there is a back siphonage condition which could happen if a fire hydrant gets broken. When this occurs, the contaminated water cross connects with your current water source and could cause an intake of unhealthy water back into the water that you drink. Reverse Osmosis Systems will remove common chemical contaminants (metal ions, aqueous salts), including sodium, chloride, copper, chromium, and lead; may reduce arsenic, fluoride, radium, sulfate, calcium, magnesium, potassium, nitrate, and phosphorous.
Keep your water fresh: You are what you eat, right? More like, you are what you drink. It’s important to know how safe your water is prior to it entering your plumbing line. Unsanitary water can cause serious health issues and old outdated plumbing systems can leach lead into the water lines. Through the technique of water softening, calcium and magnesium ions are removed; as they cause the water to be hard. Iron ions may also be removed during softening. The best way to soften water is to use a water softener unit and connect it directly to the water supply.
To avoid spending more time in the bathroom than you had intended you want to be aware of not allowing bacteria to enter the water that you use for food and drink. An active charcoal carbon filter is the most effective at removing chlorine, sediment, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), taste and odor from water. They are not effective at removing minerals, salts, and dissolved inorganic compounds.
Lead, on the other hand, is good for shielding Superman against kryptonite, paints and gas, but NOT good for your health. Lead poisoning is damaging on the brain and nervous system. Toxic chemicals can be released from your own pipes, faucets, and more. If lead leaches into your water system, your refreshing water can become toxic. A simple check by an experienced plumber can easily prevent all of these issues for you and your family.
Keep the age of your house in mind. Just like shoes and hairstyles get dated, so do your pipes. The older your house, the more it pays to have your pipes checked. Be proactive; not reactive. Get a yearly check-up or at least a regular inspection throughout the year. One check up in a day, can keep the doctor away.
Let us help make sure your family is safe!
