Sewer Camera Inspection of Sewer and Drain Lines
When you consider the potential for damage from a faulty sewer line – backups, floods, leaks, and more – it’s evident that resolving sewer line issues as soon as they arise is critical. Sewer line issues that cause sewage to back up into your home can harm your health, cause property damage, and cost you money.
The first step when you suspect a problem with your sewer is to get a proper diagnosis. You can proceed with cleaning, clog dissolve, sewer line repair, or even sewer line replacement once you have the necessary information. Fortunately, today’s modern sewer camera technology allows your plumber to see a large portion of your sewer line without having to dig to diagnose your sewer view.
What Are Sewer Line Cameras and How Do They Work?
A sewer line camera is a waterproof, high-resolution camera mounted on a slender pole. The entire sewer line camera system is extremely flexible, allowing it to transit pipes as tiny as 2 inches in diameter and travel through all of the numerous bends and corners of your drain and sewer lines. The camera sends live video input to the specialist, allowing the technician to see your sewer line even if it’s beneath concrete or under your house’s foundation.
When the technician comes at your home, they will feed the camera into a drain line and use a small motor included within the camera’s wire to maneuver it through your pipe and into the sewer line. The specialist will be able to visually locate the source of your sewer line issues with the help of the live video feed. The expert can provide an appropriate recommendation to repair any damage using the information provided by the sewer line camera.
When Should Sewer Line Camera Inspections Be Used?
As previously stated, most residents request sewer line inspections when they suspect a problem with their sewer line. A sewer camera inspection can detect the source of a problem if you’ve recently observed foul-smelling water on your yard, have frequent drain issues, or have had a full-fledged sewer backup into your home. In addition, if your water costs have been abnormally high, you should schedule a sewer line camera inspection to rule out any leaks.
If you’re looking to buy a home, you should schedule a sewer line camera inspection to determine the health of the sewer and drain lines on the property. This type of inspection is frequently ignored during a typical home inspection, but knowing everything you can about your new home’s sewer line and drains can provide you piece of mind.

Sewer Inspection Warning Signs
Your home, business, or industrial pipes could be having problems for a variety of reasons.

Discolored water, low water pressure, sewer backup, leaking faucets, and drains that run flushing all indicate deeper issues with your sewer and drain system. When little issues go unaddressed, they can quickly escalate into major problems.
It’s tempting to try do-it-yourself drain cleaning methods when you’re having sewer and drain problems. However, no one can fully remedy a drain problem without first determining what is going on inside your pipes. Chemical drain cleaners poison your pipes and only temporarily solve the problem, causing it to recur. Snaking only reaches surface clogs and does not remove clogs or blockages completely. Pipe inspection is the only approach to accurately identify and effectively solve your pipe problems.

Our plumbing professionals get information from a radio transmitter attached to the camera, letting them know the exact issue and its location within your sewer system.

- Corrosion of the tank
- Root damage to trees
- Overflowing storage tanks
- Tank outlet baffles that have been damaged
Because the tank is placed beneath the ground, it might be difficult to discover problems with your septic system. In many cases, homeowners are only made aware of problems after the tank has been pumped or cleaned.

How long does a video camera inspection last?
The time required to complete a video camera inspection of your sewer will depend on the length of the sewer pipe and the condition of the pipe itself. If your sewer is only ten or twelve feet in length, the inspection should only take ten or fifteen minutes. But if your sewer is much longer and contains offset joints or partial collapsed sections, the inspection could take much longer to complete.
What is the most common diagnosis from a video camera inspection?
Heavy root intrustion through pipe joints is probably the most common diagnosis from a video camera inspection of a sewer. Once root intrusion causes backups more than once a year, a homeowner should consider having the sewer repaired or replaced. Since sewers are designed to be a sealed system, if roots can get in, then sewage can leach out. However, your plumber will give you options that may include additional cleanings to prevent backups from occurring, spot repairs, or a complete sewer line replacement. Unless the sewer has partially collapsed to prevent drainage, the homeowners can follow whichever option is best for them.
What is the process of a home video camera inspection?
A video inspection of the sewer is usually requested/ordered after a sewer & drain technician determines that there are anomolies or problems with the sewer. This may include difficulty getting his cable and blade through the pipe, the cable gets stuck, or the cable pull back with signs of mud on it. Mud on the cable indicates that the cable exited the pipe through a void and was spinning through surrounding soil. The camera operator arrives and puts the camera snake into the sewer via a cleanout access port or via a toilet drain. The camera operator watches a video monitor to assess the sewer’s condition as the camera snake passes through. Camera operators prefer to have a homeowner onsite to look at the monitor and see the condition firsthand. The camera operator will provide the homeowner with a professional assessment of the sewer’s condition along with some options that may include more frequent cleanings, spot repairs, or a complete sewer line replacement.
Should you do a sewer scope inspection?
If you’ve experienced sewer backups and a professional sewer line cleaning revealed root intrusion or there were traces of mud on the cable and cutting blade, it would be a good idea to have a sewer scope inspection of the pipeline. The video camera snake is equipped with high intensity LED lights to reveal cracks and other pipe damage. A sewer solutions specialist will be able to determine the extent of the damage and poit it out to you on the video monitor. He or she will present the homeowner with options ranging from more frequent cleanings to prevent surprise backups to actual pipe repairs. If the damage is significant he may recommend spot repairs or even a complete sewer line replacement. But most of the time, more frequent cleanings will keep roots and clogs at bay.
