Fixing Unresolved Drain Problems
A camera inspection becomes necessary when snaking your drain fails to handle the problem. Our service technicians do a video camera line inspection to identify the exact cause of your drain trouble.
A video camera inspection allows us to find the following issues with your pipes:
- Blockages from debris
- Root intrusions
- Broken pipes
- Deteriorating pipes
- Leaking pipe joints
- Bellied drain line (line sags, allowing accumulation of debris)
- Cracked sewer pipe
- Separated sewer pipe joint
The camera inspection lets us identify the true problem so we can recommend the correct fix.
How A Video Camera Inspection Works
Using a specially designed state-of-the-art waterproof video camera, our professionally trained service technicians inspect your pipes from the inside.
The camera is mounted on the end of a flexible rod that gets inserted into your sewer main or the pipe that is blocked or leaking and is pushed through the pipe.
Using a CCTV system, our technician monitors the camera’s progress through your pipes, looking for problems like roots, accumulated debris, or breaks in your pipes. The images can be saved for a permanent record of your pipes’ condition.
