Sewer & Drain Camera Inspection

WHAT IS A VIDEO DRAIN INSPECTION?

A video camera inspection works to accurately diagnose the cause of a drainage problem and can isolate stubborn clogs in hard to reach and see places. We thread a flexible cable with a fiber optic video camera on its tip into your sewer drains. The video camera travels up, down and around drain corners. The video camera transmits real-time, high-definition video to a monitor outside the drain. Our technology allows us to investigate the issues behind many common issues, including:

  • Slow drains
  • Recurring Clogs: Clogs that may be cleared temporarily, but continue to return.
  • Foul Odors: Nasty sewer smells coming from your drains indicate a buildup of organic material that need to be cleaned out.
  • Overflowing Toilets: When flushed, waste and toilet water overflow, even if little or no toilet tissue was used to necessitate an overflow.
  • Sewage Backup: Remove puddling on your lawn.
  • Leaks, Seepage or Cracks: In basement walls or on the floor.
  • Gurgling Drains: Strong indicator that your drains are not breathing properly, which traditionally means a clog is building.
  • Gutter and Downspouts Overflowing: Lack of improper maintenance to gutters and downspouts allow debris to collect and back up their proper flow.

WHEN SHOULD I SCHEDULE A VIDEO DRAIN INSPECTION?

Schedule an inspection if you are experiencing one or more of the following draining issues:

  • Extremely slow drainage
  • Clogged drain with murky, smelly, standstill water
  • Repeated drain backups or clogs
  • Strange gurgling sounds from your utility sink, sinks or toilets
  • Foul odors coming from any of your drains
  • Drain gurgling

Because clogs and backups can be caused by any number of things – such as hair, food, grease, grime, feminine products, wipes, dirt and debris, mineral buildup, small objects, and tree roots – experiencing any of the above issues requires immediate assistance.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is sewer camera inspection?

A sewer camera inspection is where a high-tech, flexible cable with a fiber optic video camera on its tip is placed in a main sewer line to scope up, down and around pipe corners. With the footage from the camera relaying real-time feedback, diagnostic technicians can see the condition of the drains and locate a clog, diagnose the issue, and show the technician if there are any lurking issues that can become bigger issues down the road.

Why should I have my sewer lines inspected?

As with most of the other systems in your home, such as heating and cooling, regular maintenance can help to prevent unwanted, costly problems. Periodic inspections and cleanings can not only help to prevent clogs and backups, but also to locate areas of drain affected by environmental factors such as shifting ground or tree root invasions. We recommend having sewer lines inspected in these three main scenarios:

  • When purchasing or renting a new home or commercial property
  • When experiencing slow drains, repeated backups, strange gurgling sounds or foul odors
  • When experiencing slow drains, repeated backups, strange gurgling sounds or foul odors

How often should I have my sewer lines inspected and cleaned?

One of the most critical parts of the draining system, the main sewer line is one of the most neglected. The average home or business owner typically doesn’t address the main sewer line until there’s a problem. To avoid these messy, smelly, sometimes dangerous, problems, sewer lines should be regularly cleaned and inspected for breaks, bellies, and root invasions. 

Residential: It is highly recommended to have your sewer lines inspected before you buy a new home. Homeowners with sewer lines 25 years or older should have their sewer lines inspected and cleaned every 1 – 2 years. Larger families placing more demand on their sewage system should consider having their sewer lines inspected every year. 

Commercial: Business owners should have their sewer lines cleaned every 18 – 22 months – especially those that are high risk due to consistent use, such as restaurants and hotels. 

Is a sewer line inspection part of a home inspection?
  • The sewer dye inspection is part of a point of sale inspection, in certain municipalities
  • Could give you the ability to negotiate the price if something is found to be unsatisfactory. 
  • Finding sewer drain issues before you buy a home can help you avoid expensive repairs down the road.
