For many home owners an exterior french drain is what keeps the basement and foundation dry, directing water away from the foundation. Unfortunately with time french drains can clog, this can be due to a broken pipe, red oaker, debris and more. As a result it is not uncommon to routinely flush and maintain your french drain system. In the event you are experiencing a broken drain, a more time consuming repair may be required as our foundation experts will need to replace that section of your system. French drains also have the potential to experience clogging due to roots from plants and trees. This maintenance/repair is a lot quicker and easier than you may think, the use of a sewer router with a full diameter scraping blade cuts through all the roots. Followed by a flush of the system, ensuring water can once again evacuate through the french drain away from your home.

A camera inspection allows for a real-time visual inspection of your foundation's drainage system. A flexible fiber optic cable with a high-resolution video camera is inserted into the french drain or pipe for inspection. As the cable is guided through the drain the camera visually records its travels, revealing any clogged or broken pipes. The video and images are simultaneously being transmitted to the camera operator who can choose to make a recommendation on the spot or save the footage to be reviewed at a later time.
Video camera inspections can be used to identify french drain or pipe damage, along with obstructions that can reduce water flow and repeatedly create backups. After a completed repair and maintenance, camera inspections also verify that obstructions have been eliminated and that your drainage system is clog free.
French drains and pipes can easily go from free flowing to clogged overnight! There is no need to guess how and why. We provide quick and easy drain camera inspections that will allow you to get to the bottom of your clogged french drain or pipe.
