Camera and Sewer Inspections
We are Your Go-To Source for Camera and Sewer Inspections
Nobody ever thinks about their drains until they have to and by that time, it is usually because there is a problem. Clogs, slow moving drains, and strange smells are just some of the signs that indicate there is a problem in your pipes. If your home is more than 15 years old, it is likely that you will need a thorough sewer inspection using a camera to view and repair the current problem and identify issues that may cause additional problems in the near future. As a homeowner, you will want to find a qualified and trustworthy professional plumber that will work quickly to resolve your problem. We are the go-to source for homeowners who only want the very best to repair their plumbing problems but who also want to stick to their budget.
What is a Camera Inspection of Your Sewer Line?
Your sewer line operates on a complex network of connecting pipes that carry water and refuse away from your kitchen, bathrooms and other areas of your home into the sewer system or septic tank. A camera inspection, when performed by a well-trained plumber, allows you and your technician to see the inside of your pipes by attaching a small camera to the end of a snake and running the snake through the inside of your pipes. The camera transmits the image, in real-time, to a nearby monitor. Professionals at Plumber 911 are highly trained in this service and are able to successfully operate the camera and to identify current and potential issues that are hiding in your pipes.
Why is a Camera Inspection Better than a Traditional Drain Snake?
Asking why a camera-enabled snake is better than a traditional drain snake is like asking why it would better for a surgeon to have an x-ray of your insides rather than just cutting blind. The inside of your drains are long, dark, and dirty. As dirt, hair and other particles travel through your pipes, they leave residues which can build up on the sides of the pipes. The camera gives a professional plumber a way to see every centimeter of your pipes and to determine the exact location and cause of your problem. By providing a view deep into your pipes that are not available to the naked eye, your plumber can provide you with better, and more thorough, service.
Camera-Enabled Sewer Inspections Are Helpful for Homebuyers Too
Most homebuyers order an inspection of their new house before completing the purchase. Unfortunately, many buyers never think of having their sewer lines inspected. If your dream home is more than 15 years old, you will greatly benefit from the addition of a camera-enabled sewer inspection into your pre-purchase home inspection regimen. There are numerous potential problems that could be hiding in the pipe and drain systems of older homes and a pre-purchase inspection can uncover many potential problems.
Roots from trees and shrubs can, over time, grow through the openings in pipes of older homes. Root growth will be visible to the camera and you will know exactly what you are dealing with before completing your purchase.
Older Pipes Can Collapse
Many older homes were built using less reliable materials such as tar paper and orange burg. These materials can break down over time which will lead to a costly pipe collapse. A camera inspection allows your plumber to determine the materials that were used in your pipe and drain systems.
Heavy Duty Clogs Can Be Eliminated
It is unlikely that, before completing your home purchase, you will have spent much time in the home to determine if there are clogs, slow drains or other plumbing issues and, unfortunately, that information may not be disclosed to you by the seller. By snaking a camera through the pipes, problem clogs can be identified so that there are no surprises on the move in day.

How Often Should I Have an Inspection?
If your home is more than 15 years old, it is advisable to have a camera-enabled sewer inspection completed at least once every five years, regardless of whether or not you have a plumbing problem. Because pipes develop problems over time due to tree root growth and numerous other causes, periodic inspections can detect problems before they cause a major problem. Roots can be detected and dealt with prior to causing a plumbing breakdown. Material degradation can also be seen with the help of a camera prior to a pipe collapse. It is more convenient and more cost-effective to identify and prevent a potential problem now that it will be to deal with a larger plumbing problem later.
