Our sewer and drain camera inspection services allow us to view your sewage pipes and identify any potential plumbing issues based on their condition. By using video camera technology, we can utilize this non-invasive inspection method to examine your plumbing system and provide solutions to prevent future clogged drains and sewer issues.

What is a Drain Camera Inspection?

A drain camera inspection lets our technicians accurately identify what is wrong with your drainpipe and where exactly lies the root of the problem. Our inspection utilizes a high-tech plumbing camera that we hold and control via a long cable to visually identify the obstruction in your sewer system.

Unlike traditional plumbing techniques that require excavation, a drain camera inspection is unobtrusive, more accurate, and allows our plumber to see the health of your plumbing lines in real-time.

Why Opt for Camera Inspections?

Over the years, the sewer camera video inspection has become among the most helpful advancements in plumbing technology. If a sewer pipe in your home or business is clogged, crushed, cracked, or completely disconnected, a video camera inspection by City Rooter provides the following benefits:

  • Understand the condition of your pipes
  • Identify blockages or damages without disruptive methods
  • Time and cost efficient
  • Locate the problem accurately

Common Issues Detected by Camera Inspections

A drain camera inspection is a proactive and cost-saving investment that helps your property’s plumbing system. With fast and early diagnosis, City Rooter plumbers can easily locate and repair your plumbing problems. These are most common drain issues detected by our plumbing camera inspections:

This is the number one cause of water and sewer pipe blockages. It is typical to find tree root intrusions invading the pipes of older homes, but they can find their way into any system.

Too much stress from extreme cold, corrosion, misalignment, and water pressure can cause your pipes to break open, leading to major flooding and other plumbing problems.

When a sewer pipe cracks, leaks eventually develop so you will need to repair or replace your tube. Common causes for cracked pipe are tree roots, settlement of the soil around the pipe, improper installation, or improper pipe repair.

It’s important to clear your drains from clogs as it can lead to corrosion, sewage backups, and flooding. Clogged drains are usually a result of soap scum, hair, food scraps, and toilet paper building up.

Sewer lines can collapse if your pipes are misaligned. This will happen if a tube starts to leak wastewater into the surrounding soil, eroding that soil over time, which will increase the pressure on the sewer line.

The Process of a Camera Inspection

Our process of a drain camera inspection first begins by attaching a camera to the end of a cable that is inserted into the drain or sewer pipe. The camera sends a continuous live video feed to a monitor that we use to locate any problems within the pipes such as any punctures, obstructions, cracks, and leaks.

Once the drain camera inspection is complete, our plumber will review the video and provide a solution.
