4 Benefits of a Sewer Drain Camera Inspection
The surefire way to know what’s going on in your plumbing is by having an expert conduct a camera inspection. Even if you don’t currently have plumbing problems, a regular review allows you to catch and repair small issues before they balloon into large ones. Here are the four main benefits of having your sewer line inspected.
- Quickly Locates Leaks & Breaks — Sometimes, water leaks aren’t easily determined, and while you may feel the effects of a leak or break, you can’t find the problem. A camera inspection gets to the root of the problem quickly.
- Eliminates Digging & Guessing — Digging a three-foot trench into your yard to find a leak in the plumbing is expensive and a hassle. Rather than guessing where the problem is or digging up the yard, the camera inspection is less intrusive, less expensive, and provides quicker results.
- See the Condition of Your Pipes — The innermost workings of your home’s plumbing are likely out of sight, out of mind; however, a sewer drain video inspection gives you the lowdown on the state of your plumbing and can alert you to a problem that’s developing.
- Video Reference — A camera inspection provides you with video references on your plumbing condition if you need them for insurance purposes.

How Does a Sewer Line Inspection Work?
Our specialists insert a flexible rod down into the pipe. The rod has a high-definition camera affixed to its tip. The flexible rod means that the camera moves through the twists and turns that make up the average home’s plumbing.
Video is fed back to the surface to an HDTV monitor, and a radio transmitter records data such as depth and physical location of defects or clogs in the pipes.
For stubborn or recurring clogs, call us and ask about our clogged drain repair service.
