Sewer Line Camera Inspections

Sewer Line Camera Inspections

Are you dealing with some type of sewer issue and have no idea what is it or where to dig? A sewer line video inspection can help! It’s a relatively non-invasive, reliable, and cost-effective technique that eliminates the guesswork and makes sewer-related fixes much more manageable.

What Is a Sewer Camera Inspection?

A sewer line camera inspection is a modern and efficient technique that most plumbing professionals today take advantage of. The specialist simply runs a camera through the plumbing system to identify the problem close up and with real-time details.

This service can come in handy in a number of situations. Not only is it great for identifying blockages and clogs in the plumbing system, but it’s also helpful if you’re planning to add to or remodel the property’s kitchen or bathroom areas. Video inspections can help influence your decision and determine whether the plumbing system is capable of handling increased demands.

DIY sewer camera inspections are not really an option. Professionals have high-quality equipment with powerful lights, high-resolution cameras, recording capabilities, and transmitters to help inspect the system and trace the blocking points. 

How Do Sewer Line Camera Inspections Work?

When you have a video inspection done for your sewer line, you get an overview of the entire system — from the trap to the pipeline, up to the blockage, leading to even the municipal line if the equipment can push through. A flexible rod affixed with the video equipment is inserted in the pipe that travels down and sends back the video signals to an HD monitor. The technician can also make a recording for future references depending on your situation.

The rods are well equipped with a bright LED light to illuminate the insides and reveal any cracks, leakage, blockage, structural problems, etc. The radio transmitter in the rod is used to gauge the defects’ depth and location. This allows the technician to diagnose problems precisely, and to suggest the appropriate treatments.

Camera inspections are great for identifying cracks, root intrusions, corrosion, punctures, misaligned pipes, and more. Leakage, grease buildup, and other interferences can also be identified. The service technician may perform a follow-up inspection to verify that everything is working well once the repairs are conducted, and drains are cleared. 

When Should You Undergo a Sewer Camera Inspection?

Sewer camera inspections are often recommended when you experience frequent plumbing problems like clogging, back-ups, or slow draining. However, this is not always the case. Homeowners sometimes undergo video inspections to retrieve a lost item that has fallen down the drain. Property buyers and realtors also see the benefit of conducting video inspections before investing in a property, as it gives a better perspective on the condition of the plumbing system.
