What Sewer Camera Inspection Can Identify
To inspect the pipes and find possible problems, a special sewer video camera with a flexible cable is inserted into the main sewer line to do the cleaning. Then our plumber watches on a monitor above ground to see what’s going on with the camera acting as our visual aid. A sewer camera can identify cracks, leaks, and clogs in your sewer lines. Sewer camera inspections are also the safest and easiest way in identifying if the pipes in your main sewer line have been invaded by tree roots. We specialize in removing this kind of blockage to have your drains free and clear from all other types of clogs.
Drainage or Stoppage Issues.
If something is disturbing your drain system, our plumber uses sewer camera inspections to determine what is causing it. Often in cases like these, we find stoppages, blockages, roots, mud, broken pipe, etc.
Materials, depth, and length of your sewer lines
By performing sewer camera inspections, it permits our plumbers to get visual access to the pipes we can’t normally see while remaining above ground and not have to call an excavation company to dig up unnecessary holes on your property. Before taking action, we need to fully understand your sewer line to give a more comprehensive assessment and solutions.
Tree root infiltrations
These are most common with old pipes made out of clay or cast iron pipe. Tree roots seek out water sources as they grow, and if they find a crack in your sewer line, they’ll grow into it to get into the water. We are a team made up of more than just your plumber. Amongst all the other services we provide, rooter plumbing is at the heart of what we do best.
Broken, cracked, or collapsed pipes
As the camera cable feeds through the pipe, our experts will be able to tell if the pipe has collapsed, shifted, or become damaged.
Sagging or bellied sewer line
Over time, part of the sewer pipe can begin to sag, and this is when and how waste gets caught which leads to repeat blockages in the sewer system. This is not a problem that we expect most people to be able to repair or even notice on their own.
