Video cameras are an essential component for deep plumbing issues that are not easily accessible, but sewer line blockages are some of the messiest, most costly plumbing disasters possible. Issues of this magnitude call for a high-tech solution. That’s why our plumbers use a sewer line camera to detect sewer line blockages. As the name implies, a sewer line blockage occurs when a foreign object prevents plumbing waste from flowing away from your home. These are some of the most common causes, such as old sewer line cracking or disconnecting, using “flushable” products like flushable wet wipes, dumping grease down your sink/garbage disposal, accidentally flushing garbage/hand towels down toilet, tree roots growing into the sewer line.
The repair for each of these sewer line blockages differs. This makes identifying the cause of your individual sewer line blockage even more crucial. So, sewer line camera inspection: the plumber fits the camera into the sewer, a sewer line camera projects a live feed from the inside the sewer line, the plumber sends the camera further down the sewer line until he locates the cause of the sewer line blockage, this allows the plumber to locate and diagnose the sewer line blockage.
The video footage is transmitted to the technician in real-time, so the condition inside your sewer and drain lines can be assessed immediately. A video camera helps our staff to accurately identify all types of problems. Key issues such as root puncture and bent pipes or broken, pipelines can now be fixed properly. The inspection can be repeated after any service is performed to verify that the line has been properly cleaned or repaired.
