SEWER CAMERA INSPECTION
AN ESSENTIAL TOOL FOR YOUR SEWER
Waterproof, flexible cameras have reshaped the way plumbers diagnose sewer problems. Before, it was large speculation or having to dig up the yard for an inspection. Today, a sewer camera inspection in Houston is the best way to determine what is wrong with your plumbing. Are you experiencing drain issues? Is sewage coming up out of the drains? You may need an inspection and repair. Before we can be sure what solution is best suited for you, our sewer inspection professionals will use a camera to inspect your sewer line.
HOW IS A SEWER CAMERA USED?
In order for our team to get a good look at your sewer line, we’ll perform a sewer camera inspection. Our team uses a waterproof camera on the end of a flexible tube. This camera is fed into an access point, typically a drain closest to your sewage line. As the camera is sent into your sewer, it gives the plumber a live feed of what it sees. While the quality isn’t the best, it’s perfect for our team to know what might be lurking in your sewers. It provides us with plenty of information necessary to know what is causing your sewer problems. We’ll suggest the best course of action based on what we find. Our sewer inspection professionals have no need to guess what the problem may be or rip up any part of your yard.
BENEFITS OF SEWER CAMERA INSPECTIONS
The greatest benefit of a sewer camera inspection in Houston is cutting out any guessing. Plumbers had to make decisions based on the few symptoms their drains were experiencing back in the day. Today, there is no “best guess” because we can see what is directly impacting your sewer line. The live feed to our plumbers allows them to diagnose the problem in a matter of minutes. We also get greater details with these cameras, which gives us the ability to use a solution best suited for the problem. Above all, a live feed of your pipes allows us to develop a solution that is best suited for your problem. Not all sewer issues are the same. When we can tailor solutions to your plumbing, we can provide a long-lasting solution.
WHAT CAN A SEWER CAMERA INSPECTION FIND?
Sewer cameras are valuable resources for our team to determine what types of sewer problems you may have lurking within your property. When you have symptoms of sewer problems, our sewer inspection professionals will implement this trusty tool. While this camera is handy, it does have its limitations. There are only a handful of problems we can identify with the sewer camera. Here is what we can determine with a sewer camera inspection in Houston:
- Locate sewer and plumbing lines
- Sewer clogs or blockages
- Tree roots
- Collapsed or cracked pipes
- Type of pipe material (PCV or cast iron)
- Sewer connections or layout
CAN A SEWER CAMERA INSPECTION FIND A LEAK?
No. A sewer camera inspection in Houston will not be able to find a leak in your sewer system. It can certainly locate visible damage which may cause a leak, but we cannot visually tell if it’s enough to cause a leak. Additionally, any damage in the pipe could be within the buildup it has accumulated over the years. The walls of PVC and cast iron sewer pipes accumulate calcium, grease, debris, and many other materials. The damage may be a part of these things rather than the pipe itself. Of course, we also can’t identify the loss of water with the camera since your system will be empty, and we cannot view the pipe from the outside.
