A sewer camera can help identify sewer line blockage or backup without having to resort to digging or cutting tree roots or making other unnecessary plumbing repairs.
If you smell a moldy or sewer gas odor, discover your water isn’t draining properly, spot overgrown green patches on your lawn, or find yourself with a high water bill, you should call a plumber ASAP and schedule a sewer camera inspection.
What Is a Sewer Camera Inspection?
Sewer camera inspections are used to accurately locate and diagnose any unknown backups, leaks, or damages that may be occurring in your sewer system. It’s fast, non-invasive, and affordable compared to future costs you could be spending if you wait for the problem to worsen.
Common plumbing problems that can be identified with a sewer camera include tree root infiltration, damaged or collapsed pipes, and clogged sewer lines.
How Do Sewer Camera Inspections Work?
Sewer cameras are state-of-the-art equipment that use a long cable that measures the depth from the surface. Attached to the end of it is a waterproof video camera with LED lights. The plumber can follow along in real-time on a small screen and look out for any abnormalities.
The alternative is the traditional route, which requires open cut excavation. Not only would this cause ground disturbance, but it is often more costly as it can lead to digging up pavement or landscaping.
When Should I Schedule Sewer Line Inspections?
Get this inspection done before starting to remodel or buying an older home. You don’t want to run into any unexpected problems that can hurt your budget.
Failing to do routine sewer line maintenance can also lead to invasive damage to your sewer system, which can wreak havoc to your home and your pockets. Schedule an appointment with us today. We’ll give a free quote over the phone.
