Sewer Line Camera Inspection
Correctly identifying plumbing and drain problems can save you time and money, and ensure that you won’t have a bigger problem on your hands down the road. We highly recommend scheduling a video pipe inspection if you’re experiencing any of the following:
- Repeated drain backups or clogs
- Extremely slow drainage
- Strange gurgling sounds from your washing machine, sinks or toilets
- Foul odors coming from your yard or a depressed area in your lawn
- Foul odors coming from your air vents
A sewer line camera inspection can quickly help to determine the cause of these problems. With video evidence in hand, our plumbing technicians can walk you through a discussion of the most efficient and budget-friendly options for repair.
You might also benefit from a video pipe inspection if you are:
- Considering purchasing a new home and want to avoid future costly repairs
- Considering remodeling a kitchen or bathroom and need to ensure your main sewer line can handle the greater amounts of waste water involved
Sewer Inspection Services & Process
A sewer camera inspection provides you with a recorded visual inspection of sewer lines and other pipes below your home or commercial building.
The technician threads a flexible cable, or “snake,” with a high-resolution video camera on its tip into your sewer line from an access point. The video camera travels deep down into the pipes – up, down and around corners – through pipes that may not have been easily accessed any other way because they’re underground or in cement.
The video camera transmits real-time images to a monitor outside the pipe, allowing your plumbing technician to determine the condition of the pipe and necessary repairs or replacements on the spot. He can then recommend the best approach for addressing immediate existing problems and a clear estimate of their cost. This is the main advantage of a video pipe inspection: you won’t pay for costly repairs you don’t need.
The real-time video also records the physical location of identified problems. This is the second main advantage of a video pipe inspection: technicians can zero in on the problem area, or areas, saving you time and money.
You might find that there are no existing problems. In this case, your plumbing technician can still provide you with a review of the sewer line condition and solutions for potential upcoming problems.
