How Plumber Camera Inspection works
A plumber camera inspection examines the sewer pipe for blockages and leaks.
The need for a sewer camera inspection is simple. Sewer lines are commonly under a 4 inch concrete slab foundation and another 2 feet of dirt.
You need a way to get into the pipe and see the problem.
The sewer camera is at the end of a flexible cable. The camera is inserted into the main sewer line clean out. From there you can see on a monitor what is going on inside your sewer line.
What does it look for?
There are two main reasons for a plumbing camera inspection.
- Drain blockage and backup
- Flooding from a leak
The camera can go into the pipe and find the location of a blockage. You'll be able to see the blockage and make a plan for how to remove it.
The camera inspection can also find leaks caused by cracked or damaged pipes. Tree roots commonly cause pipe damage - you'll see it on the monitor.
Once you find the problem you're on way to getting it fixed.
