Have you been told you need a sewer camera inspection?
Sewer cameras are a valuable tool for aiding plumbers in finding certain kinds of problems in your sewer pipes. Since sewer pipes are buried underground, finding and diagnosing a problem is not so simple, and a sewer camera can help with that.
But that’s also why it’s important to hire an experienced and honest plumbing company when you suspect problems with your sewer pipes. You need to know the plumber inspecting your pipes has the right tools and the experience to know what they are looking for — and looking at — as well as the integrity to tell you what’s really going on.
What Is a Sewer Camera?
A waterproof camera is attached to the tip of a flexible cable that is inserted into the pipes. At the other end of the cable is a video monitor giving the trained technician a live view of what the camera “sees.”
Types of Problems a Sewer Camera Can Find
• Breaks in the lines
• Tree roots in the lines
• Stoppages in the lines
• Locate lines
And sewer cameras can be used as a secondary tool in locating leaks.
