The purpose of a sewer video camera inspection is to be able to see what is causing a blockage or backup within the sewer pipe without guessing what the problems is or digging up a yard. A plumbing video camera pipe inspection allows for a real-time visual inspection of underground sewer lines and other piping to determine the condition inside the pipe.
Using a snake cam, the plumber on site will locate a “clean out valve,” which is used to clean out or identify the debris that may be clogging your sewage line. Once the entry point is located, the contractor sets up the snake cam, which is connected to a reel. The components are also connected to an external monitor, which broadcasts what the camera sees as it travels down the sewer line.
The plumber will then monitor the images on a video screen. With this specialized equipment, we’re able to see clogs, cracks, tree roots and more. If we locate any damage to your pipes, we can electronically locate repairs that need to be addressed, because our sewer video camera inspection equipment is equipped with locators to determine the exact location and depth of the sewer line damage from above ground. This allows to pinpoint the problem and repair it if required. Using the information gathered by the inspection, our experienced plumbers can recommend the most reliable and cost-effective solution to get your home plumbing working properly again.
