Camera Inspection Service

As anyone who has ever dealt with a clogged drain knows, plumbing problems can be a real pain. Fortunately, modern technology has made it easier than ever to diagnose and fix plumbing issues. Video cameras are one of the most valuable tools in the plumbing business. Specially designed waterproof plumbing cameras allow plumbing technicians to conduct a visual inspection of sewer lines and other pipes, including pipes under concrete slabs, inside the walls, and under your home’s foundation. The video footage is transmitted to the technician in real-time, so the condition inside your sewer and drain lines can be assessed quickly and accurately. This allows the technician to identify any potential problems.

Common Issues

  • Roots
  • Clogged Pipes
  • Vent Blockage

Common Issues Found

Broken or Collapsed Plumbing

One of the most frustrating and costly problems that a homeowner can face is a sewer line backup. Not only is it unsanitary, but it can also cause significant damage to your home. One cause of sewer line backups is broken or collapsed pipes. When these pipes fail, they can cause multiple drains in your home to fail at the same time. A camera inspection is an efficient and non-invasive way to identify where the damage is in the sewer line so that the digging in your yard will be minimal.

Clogs and Blockages

One of the most obvious things that a camera inspection can reveal is a clog. Hair, grease, soap scum, foreign objects, and mineral buildup can all cause clogs and blockages in your sewer system. A camera inspection can locate where the clog is occurring and what is blocking the flow. This will help us make the quickest repair to your plumbing system.

Root Intrusion

Root intrusion is the number one cause of major sewer and drainage issues. It is one of the most serious types of damage that your sewer drainage system can face. When a tree is in need of moisture, it will reach out and seek a source of water for its needs. This makes it only natural then that they are often attracted to the supply of water that is typically found in a sewer line. The roots initially find their way into the sewer lines through a small crack, pin hole, or even the joints or gaps that are in between pipes if they are not secure. Once the roots are inside, they begin to reach out and grow. As they continue to grow and expand, they start to put immense amounts of pressure on the sewer line itself. The expansion eventually leads to cracks and breaks in the sewer line. A camera inspection will help identify if this is the cause of your plumbing problem.

Tips for Maintaining Healthy Plumbing

Tree Roots

You should keep an eye out for tree root intrusions yourself. Getting yearly camera inspections will help, but there are other steps to take to notice tree roots yourself and to prevent them from growing in the first place. You can ask to have tree root barriers placed around your pipes to deter roots from growing.
Try to practice sewer line-safe landscaping. This means you should avoid planting fast and strong-growing trees directly next to sewer lines. Be aware of where your lines are and avoid them while planting.

Grease/Kitchen Scraps

Grease that is flushed down the sink becomes a thick, sticky substance as it cools and it will clog up your drain and your whole sewer system.
If you don’t have a garbage disposal in your sink, you need something to catch the food scraps so that you can properly throw them away.
Even with a garbage disposal in your sink, you need to make sure that you only put the proper materials down the sink drain and that it’s working properly to break those materials down. Most kitchen scraps really belong in the garbage – not the drain.

Non-Flushable Paper Products

Toilets are only capable of handling human waste and flushable toilet paper. Other products do not belong in the toilet and can easily clog your drain.
Some of the things that don’t belong in the toilet are cotton pads, face wipes, baby wipes, tampons, and sanitary pads. Basically, if the packaging doesn’t explicitly say that you can flush the item, assume that you cannot.
