What is a Sewer Camera Inspection?

Every sewer system in the United States is different and depends on a variety of factors. If you’re having sewer problems, it’s best to call a sewer camera inspection contractor. Sewer camera inspections use small video cameras, much like the ones found in smartphones, but that are more high tech and waterproofed. Once they enter your home or business sewer lines, these cameras can provide sewer professionals with close-up images of your sewer lines, helping them determine what may be damaged or broken inside your sewer line.

What is the Purpose of Sewer Camera Inspections?

Sewer camera inspections allow plumbers to act before problems become critical. This is important for homeowners who are not sure whether or not they need sewer repairs, but would like the peace of mind that comes with knowing if their system needs more comprehensive plumbing services or drain cleaning.

Sewer cameras are typically used when there is no evidence of visible leaks from manholes, yard drains, or other problem areas. Sewer cameras give technicians a better view of the sewer pipes so they can determine where root intrusion has happened, cracks have developed, and blockages have occurred. All sewer problems are reported in the sewer camera inspection report provided to homeowners/business owners upon completion of sewer inspections.

What Do Sewer Camera Inspections Examine?

Sewer cameras can inspect different areas of sewer systems, including public sewer systems and private sewer connections to homes and businesses. The video taken by sewer cameras can be transmitted back to the plumber so he can get a detailed view of the interior of the system. An inspection report is provided within 24 hours after the job is completed and can often be completed at the time of service.

What Are the Benefits of a Sewer Camera Inspection?

Sewer repair work has the potential to cause costly damage if not done incorrectly. Sewer camera inspections are accurate and complete so your plumber can know exactly what state your sewer system is in and exactly where the issue lies.

Sewer camera inspections catch problems before they become serious enough to cause damage to a home or business.

What Does a Sewer Camera Report Include?

The sewer camera report includes a video of the sewer inspection and can be watched by you on a computer monitor using a special software program that will allow you to see inside your sewer pipes. You’ll also get an easy-to-read inspection report which describes any problems found during the sewer inspections process.
