Do I need to Camera my Sewer Line?


Camera Line Inspection

Sewer and drain cameras have become one of the most valuable tools in the plumbing industry. Specialty made waterproof cameras allow for a visual inspection of sewer lines, drain lines and other pipes that are underground, overhead, in cement and under your home’s foundation.

A professionally trained and skilled technician inserts a flexible cable with a high-resolution video camera on its tip into pipes from 2 inches to 6 inches in diameter. The flexible cable 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. The images can be saved for a permanent record.

Camera Sewer Inspections Reach Tough Places - Takes the guesswork out!

During video camera line inspection, radio transmitters on the camera record the depth and physical location from the surface of any defect or obstructions so that your technician can accurately diagnose and solve any drain line concerns. There is no guesswork, so your problems will be resolved quickly and cost effectively.

Identify Problems Using Video Camera’s

A video camera line inspection pipe will identify all types of problems.  Some of the issues we have discovered with a sewer camera have been root intrusion, broken pipes, misaligned drain line, punctured sewer pipe, off-grade or corroded lines. 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.

Other Uses

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.
