Although we have been in the professional plumbing industry for over three generations, we enjoy moving with the times. This means investing in cutting-edge technologies that provide seamless and efficient plumbing solutions for your home. One of these solutions is sewer camera inspections. In this article, we’ll answer some FAQs regarding this relatively new sewer inspection method.
What is a Sewer Camera Inspection?
This is a diagnostic process by which a certified plumbing technician runs a flexible rod through your sewer line. This rod is connected to a special high-definition camera that records a video feed inside the sewer. The feed is then transmitted to a monitor on the ground operated by the technician, who uses it to identify any sewer problems your home might have.
Which Sewer Problems Can be Diagnosed Using Sewer Camera Inspections?
Sewer camera inspections can accurately detect several sewer problems and the exact location along the sewer line where each problem is. Potential problems include:
- Loose fittings
- Areas impacted by external objects like tree roots
What are the Benefits of Sewer Camera Inspections?
Sewer camera inspections can pinpoint sewer problems, unlike when plumbers had to make an educated guess. Furthermore, they remove the need for invasive procedures, like extensive trenching, when inspecting sewers.
Should I Schedule a Sewer Camera Inspection?
Sewer camera inspections are suited for any homeowner. They are an excellent way to address sewer problems before they worsen. It’s advisable to schedule regular inspections as a preventative measure, especially if you have moved into a new home.
