Cleaning and CCTV

Large Pipe Cleaning and CCTV in Washington, DC

Many commercial properties can get by with a small sewer line (between 4” and 30”). But for larger facilities and applications, a large diameter sewer (greater than 30”) is necessary. A larger pipe means an entirely different kind of debris, and therefore different cleaning methods.

Also known as an interceptor, trunk sewer, or collector, a large diameter sewer line has constant flow and increased velocity, which allows light debris to pass on to the water treatment plant while heavier debris collects at the invert. Not just rocks, bricks, and construction debris, but shopping carts and car parts.

Pre– and Post–Construction Sewer Line Inspection and Cleaning

In our service area, when a large construction project (new building or major renovation) takes place, the general contractor is required to perform a video inspection of the sewer line surrounding the project before the project begins and after it is completed.

Unfortunately, this is in effect because some general contractors had been pouring cement and construction debris down the drain lines during the construction process. Any debris found in the sewer afterwards is required to be jet–cleaned with a large Vactor Jet type truck. We can take care of this process if you’re preparing a construction project in the Washington, DC or the surrounding areas.
