Sewer Camera Inspection

Your property’s main water and sewer lines are critical for the overall plumbing function. When either acts out, your property becomes uncomfortable and even unsafe. The sewer line is perhaps the most overwhelming. The odors, noises, and exposure to health threats from backing waste are more than just plumbing nuisances. It is the top reason we offer sewer video inspection; to help commercial and residential properties identify and thoroughly fix the drains for optimal performance.

What is a plumbing video inspection?

Our sewer line video inspection utilizes cutting-edge technology to examine the drain pipe visually. It is a non-invasive inspection, meaning we won’t be digging out the pipes below your property’s foundation, usually covered by concrete floors. The visual inspection helps spot the issues, which is the first step that informs the repairs and maintenance. Establishing the problem means the maintenance won’t be on a guesswork basis. It ensures the root cause of the sewer issues is addressed, making it easier to keep the property in top shape.

How can a video camera inspection help with your plumbing problem?

Plumbing video inspection provides a detailed view into the health of your drains. This means you conclusively determine what is causing the plumbing issues, its location, and the extent of the damage. This informs the technician on the best course of action. You get detailed input on the condition of your sewer line and recommendations to fix and keep the drains in better shape. The problem that the video pipe inspection can detect include but are not limited to:

  • Obstructed areas
  • Misalignments
  • Damaged drain pipes
  • Tree roots
  • Leaks
  • Grease accumulation
  • Lost items, to name a few

The information means our technicians will implement a practical maintenance strategy to address the root cause of the sewer issues.

Signs that you need a sewer camera inspection

The plumbing camera inspection and drain camera inspection are a go-to in the modern arena, and not just when a problem arises. The inspection can, for example, help you gain insights into a property’s plumbing health before buying. It is also needed to get a sewer compliance certificate. If you are concerned about any issue, here are the top signs you should consider sewer camera inspection service.

  • Recurring clogs or backing sewer
  • Bad odor from the pipes
  • Wet or soggy patches on the yard
  • Groaning, dripping, or squealing faucets, among other noises

If you notice increasing water bills, it is also a sign that you should have the plumbing system inspected. Video pipe inspection can establish if you have leaks and spot their locations, helping avoid water wastage and skyrocketing bills.

What is the cost of a sewer camera inspection?

Sewer line video inspection cost varies depending on circumstances, such as how the process is done. Sometimes, we can easily connect the camera to the main sewer line cleanout. Other situations require using the vent stack to snake the camera through. We may even have to remove the toilet, run the inspection, and reinstall it. Nonetheless, the average costs range from $200 to $ 500 but could scale up or down following the nature of the property and inspections needed.
