Sewer line video inspection is a cost-effective method for diagnosing problems within a drain, especially a large drain like a main sewer line. Using video equipment to look inside the drain pipe, we can more accurately identify and locate blockages or damage.
If you think you may have an obstruction or damage to a drain, we can quickly diagnose the problem and offer a free estimate to clear the line—without digging up your lawn or ripping holes your walls.
Reasons to have a sewer video inspection
- To find out the exact place of a clog or issue in order to limit the amount of digging to fix a problem.
- Before purchasing a new home or property—understanding costly sewer issues before buying property can save you thousands of dollars.
- If your sewer line backs up twice within a two-year period—using video inspection equipment can determine whether you have a bigger problem that needs to be addressed.
- Before investing in a new rug or flooring in your basement.
How sewer line video works
- Video inspection involves inserting a tiny camera into your sewer line or drain. The camera is on the end of a long cable, just like the snake, so we’re able to run it down the line to find the problem.
- We use video inspection equipment capable of searching up to 300 feet of line, working inside diameters as large as 10 inches and as small as 2 inches. The camera has a transmitter that sends a signal to a locator used above ground.
- This allows us to determine where the line is going as well as to pinpoint the exact location and depth of a problem area.
