Video Camera Inspection

When was the last time you looked to see what’s going on inside your sewer pipes? Unless you’ve experienced a sewer emergency, most people rarely give their sewer line much thought. However, if your home is ten years or older, your sewer line will likely need repair or replacement at some point. This is especially true if you do not perform any preventive maintenance or have lots of trees on your property. Tree roots and sewer lines just don’t mix, especially if you have older pipes. Pipe joints can crack or corrode over time, allowing space for tree roots to intrude.

The best way to see the condition of your sewer line is by video camera inspection. Sewer Video cameras have become one of the most valuable tools in the plumbing business. Specially made fiber optic cameras allow for a visual inspection of underground sewer lines and other piping to determine the condition of the inside of the pipe. A flexible rod with a high-resolution color video camera on its tip is inserted into the pipe for inspection. Real time video images are transmitted to the camera’s monitor for viewing and usually can be saved onto a DVD or flash drive for a permanent record. The camera can identify many problems such as cracks, corrosion, collapsed lines, broken fittings and root intrusions. The camera helps determine the depth and physical location of the sewer line from the surface so that defects and obstructions can be located and corrected quickly and efficiently.
