When Do You Need Sewer Camera Inspection?

Sewer repairs can be one of the highest-priced services when something gets wrong.

Situations when you need a Plumber with Sewer Camera

Sewer/Drain Backups

Drain and Sewer backups are symptoms of serious drain/sewer issues. If you have suffered from backwater it’s gonna be a very good idea to put an eye on your drain line so you can make sure that there are any breakages or more serious issues.

Roots in the Main Sewer line

You got visited by a plumber and he noticed that you have roots in your sewer line. If you don’t react on time the roots can destroy your sewer and put you in a situation where You are gonna need to completely replace your whole connection from your home to the city sewer. A camera inspection will localize the exact position of the roots detailed to 1 inch, both vertically and horizontally, and allow you to replace only the damaged section on time instead of the whole line replacement.

Main Sewer Line Belly

Sewer line bellies low spots or sags the main sewer pipe. When not fixed on the time it results in backups and other issues because the water and sediments don`t go through the sewer line but stay collected in the belly. With time bellies tend to grow, and without getting fixed will lead your home to an emergency. Camera inspection allows localizing specifically the exact location, depth, and incline of the belly which as a result will make the damaged section replacement efficient, effective, and much cheaper for You.

When NOT to Perform A Video Camera Inspection

Camera Inspection can be very effective, informative and save you a lot of money but like everything in life, You don’t always need it!

If your drain or sewer line is still clogged – completing a Video Inspection will be ineffective and a complete waste of money. 

Imagine trying to put a pen into a piece of steel. It will never enter if you don’t create this pen space in the steel so it can enter. It’s the same with the camera inspection – If there is a blockage on the line, it will not let the camera go further than the clogged spot.

And after that, we are going to provide you with a full diagnosis of the sewer line.
