using a camera to go into a sewer

Video Inspection Services in Denton and Collin County

Modern advancements have transformed the world of plumbing. In the olden days, sewer problems would call for estimated guesses as to where the issue was and require digging up various places of the yard to get to the sewer lines. Today, though, the guesswork is gone thanks to the incredible development of sewer line video inspections.

What Is a Sewer Line Video Inspection?

A sewer line video inspection is when an experienced plumber, such as your team at Bewley Plumbing, inserts a video camera through your waste pipes. These cameras are waterproof and designed to be able to snake through pipelines to give plumbers a full visual of what is happening in the sewer line and other difficult-to-reach pipes. These pipes can be located within the walls of your home, run underneath the house, or, most commonly, be the sewer line that runs from your home to the city’s waste collection and treatment facility. 

What Does the Process Entail?

A sewer line video inspection starts with our experienced plumbers inserting a flexible rod into your pipe. This rod is outfitted with a high-definition video camera and an LED light that allows our team to see every crack, clog, or structural problem within your sewer lines.

As the camera works its way through your pipes, a radio transmitter within the camera will give our team the exact depth and physical location of the problems plaguing your sewer line. This takes the guesswork out of the equation and allows our team to diagnose the problem and plan how to repair your pipes.

What Issues Can Be Revealed Through a Sewer Line Video Inspection?

There are a lot of problems that can result in a backed-up or leaking sewer line. Here are just some of the issues that our video inspection can capture:

  • Root Intrusion
  • Cracks within the pipes
  • Corrosion
  • Punctures
  • Misaligned pipe sections
  • Grease buildup
  • Leaks
  • Blockages

Once we have done the repairs, we follow up with a secondary sewer line video inspection to ensure that everything is working and repaired properly. This extra inspection can save your lines from future problems and reveal further issues that might have been obscured by the original problems. 

When Would a Sewer Line Video Inspection Be Needed?

Typically, sewer line or drainage line backups are caused by a simple clog that can be easily removed by your trusted plumbing professionals. When the problem comes back repeatedly, then it means that there is a larger issue. This is when a sewer line video inspection would be highly recommended, as letting the problem go unresolved will lead to catastrophic problems, such as sewage backing into your home.

Another time when a sewer line video inspection may be needed is when you are buying or selling a home. This inspection ensures that the sewage lines are free of issues that could lead to devastating problems for you as a future homeowner or lead to the failure of the final sale before closing.
