SEWER CAMERA INSPECTION
Video cameras are one of the most valuable tools in the plumbing business. Specially designed waterproof plumbing cameras allow plumbing technicians to conduct a visual inspection of sewer lines and other underground pipes, including pipes under cement and under your home’s foundation.
To begin your sewer camera inspection, a professionally trained and skilled technician inserts a rod with a high-resolution video camera on its tip into your sewer lines. These high-tech drain cameras are flexible, allowing them to travel through twists and turns in sewer lines and thoroughly examine pipes and pipe walls in drain lines from 2 inches to 36 inches in diameter.
The video footage is transmitted to the technician in real-time, so the condition inside your sewer and drain lines can be assessed immediately. You’ll be able to view any problems right on a monitor, and footage is saved for future reference. Plumbing cameras are just one part of our sewer line inspection process.
IDENTIFYING & ADDRESSING DRAIN LINE PROBLEMS USING VIDEO
Sewer line video inspections take the guesswork out of solving your plumbing problems. During a sewer camera inspection, radio transmitters on the drain camera record depth and physical location of any defects or obstructions it encounters in the drain line. In addition to the visual evidence transmitted by the drain camera, this data allows plumbing technicians to accurately diagnose problems and recommend solutions.
After the problem has been addressed, a follow-up sewer line video inspection can confirm that the problem is solved and give you peace of mind.
DO I NEED DRAIN CAMERA SERVICES?
Sewer camera inspection services are recommended if you experience repeated sewer or drain line backups, slow drains, or clogs. Unexpected high water bills can possibly indicate a sewer line leak, and can also be identified with a sewer line video inspection.
If you are looking to purchase a home, keep in mind that drain camera services are not typically included in a standard home inspection. A sewer line video inspection will help ensure that sewer lines are in good repair and free of problems or defects that could cause headaches and expensive repairs after you move in.
