Sewer Camera Inspection FAQ

Sometimes a clogged toilet or slow draining sink isn’t caused by something you can fix DIY style. When the issue is beyond your reach, a sewer camera inspection may be what you need to get rid of those repetitive plumbing issues.

What is a sewer camera inspection?

A sewer camera inspection is a non-invasive way to investigate the source of your plumbing problem.

Using the latest technology, we can catch deeper plumbing issues and eliminate small chronic issues.

How do sewer cameras work?

Using a waterproof camera, we are able to scope out the sewer lines and underground pipes to search for problems, such as root intrusion from trees and other plants, a broken sewer line pipe, or damaged components.

When do you need a sewer line inspection?

When small problems in your plumbing occur, you often choose to live with them. Whether it’s backed up drains or a small leak, the small issues can often become a bigger underlying problem. By scheduling a camera inspection of your sewer line, you can diagnose the whole issue, and create a repair plan that solves your plumbing problems for good.

What are the signs you need a sewer camera inspection?

When you notice these signs you may need to consider scheduling a professional sewer camera inspection. These signs include:

  • Bad odors coming from your drains

  • Your drains make a lot of noise when draining

  • Drains empty more slowly than they used to

  • Your toilet and other pipes are frequently clogged

  • Sewage backs up into your sinks and other drains

  • There are wet spots or uncommonly green spots in your yard

  • You smell sewage in your yard or around your home

What problems can a camera inspection catch?

Problems that can not be seen on the surface can often be discovered by sewer camera inspections. These include but are not limited to:

  • Root blockages

  • Cracks in pipes

  • Punctures in your pipes

  • Corrosion

  • Uneven or unaligned pipes

  • Excessive grease build-up

  • Hidden leaks

  • Other obstructions

How can I tell I need a sewer line replacement?

Once we have successfully completed a camera inspection, some repairs or replacement may be needed to get your home’s plumbing back to running at top efficiency.

Replacement may be necessary if we find:

  • Corrosion

  • The buildup of grease, household cleaners, and debris

  • Wear and tear of aging parts

  • Broken or improperly installed components

  • Backflow prevention device failures

  • Intrusion from tree and plant roots

  • Broken pipes as a result of construction or yard work

You may find signs such as, wet spots in your yard, the smell of sewage in your yard or coming from drains, stubborn clogs and backups, slow-moving drains, and even poor water pressure.

These are easy to notice on a daily basis but don’t wait to call, the problem could be more damaging than you think.
