Our Plumber Camera Inspection Service allows us to get a view on what kind of destruction is going on within your sewer lines.
A few issues regularly identified via sewer camera inspection include root intrusion, damaged/crushed pipes, leaking joints, misaligned pipes, corrosion, bellied sections, and blockages. We use specially made waterproof cameras so we have a visual inspection of sewer lines and other pipes that are underground, in cement and under your home’s foundation. We utilize plumbing video camera inspection in our diagnosis of homeowners’ plumbing problems. Our camera equipment allows us to determine the exact cause of the plumbing problem and where the problem is located by inspecting every inch of our customers’ plumbing systems. These inspections can also help us prevent future problems as well!
How does it work?
Our plumbing technician will insert a flexible rod with a high-resolution video camera on its tip into pipes 2 inches in diameter or larger. The flexible rod allows the camera to travel through the pipe–even around corners–to see the pipe in its entirety. Real-time video image transmission allows the technician to determine the condition of the inside of the pipe and understand any existing or potential problems.
Reasons for a Camera Inspection
A video camera line inspection pipe will identify all types of problems, such as root intrusion and pipe that is misaligned, broken, punctured, off-grade or corroded. The camera also identifies grease buildup, leaks, and obstructions. The inspection can be repeated after any service is performed to verify that the line has been properly cleaned or repaired.
A video camera inspection is recommended if you experience repeated drain line backups, slow drains or clogs. Additionally, a video camera line inspection before you purchase a home will help ensure that sewer lines are free of problems that can cause headaches and expensive repairs after you move in.
Video cameras have also been used to locate lost jewelry and other valuables, as well as animals that have become lost or trapped in pipes.
