Video Sewer Inspection


What is video sewer inspection?

Earlier, solving sewer-related problems was a costly and time-consuming exercise. Plumbers would often not be able to pin-point the problem right away. This mainly involved intelligent guesswork. All this changed with video sewer inspection.

This inspection involves examining the insides of a sewer and other pipelines using fiber optic cables and cameras. These cables are fitted with specially designed cameras, lowered inside sewer lines. As this cable is pushed through the pipes, it records video images of what it surveys.

Plumbers can these use these images for diagnostic purposes. They can identify where the problem lies, solve it spending minimal time and energy, and also confirm if the problem has been resolved.

Do you need video sewer inspection?

You may have a sewer problem if you encounter any of the following issues:

Sewage odor: This is usually caused by vent pipes not joined properly or when water in drain taps dry out.

Backed-up sewer line: Sewers can get blocked due to many reasons - build-up of grease, debris, root intrusion, or crushed pipe.

Overgrown grass patches in yard: When sewage water gets leaked onto the yard, waste and moisture deposits in the soil. This can cause a patch of grass to grow faster, maybe even differently (a different color).

How can we help?

We are trained and equipped with the latest technology to solve all sewer-related problems. Our professionals conduct video inspections in homes to identify the following problems:

  • Broken, cracked or collapsed pipe - damaged pipes requiring repair or replacement.
  • Offset pipe - sewer pipes have become misaligned due to shifting soil, frozen ground, settling, etc.
  • Blockage - proper water flow may be obstructed due to grease or inclusion of an object
  • Cracked sewer lateral
  • Bellied pipe - soil conditions have caused portions of the pipe to sink
  • Leaking pipe joints
  • Debris blockage
  • Root infiltration - plant roots have taken hold inside the sewer line, restricting water flow

After these problems are identified, we take the necessary steps to fix them fast, with minimal cost, and permanently.
