Video Camera Sewer Line Inspection Identifies Pipe Problems

August 02, 2015

Think about the last time you had a clogged drain, and how frustrating it was to not have the capability to see with your own eyes what was causing the backup. This is a common household problem, but thanks to specially made sewer inspection video cameras, Roto-Rooter Plumbing & Drain Service professionals near you can perform video camera line inspections of your sewer pipe. These special, waterproof snake cameras allow for real time visual inspection of underground sewer lines and other drainpipes to determine the condition on the inside of the pipe that you wouldn’t otherwise be able to see. The cameras take the guess work out of the sewer diagnosis.

The process begins with a Roto-Rooter professional inserting a flexible cable with a high-resolution camera on its tip into the pipe for inspection. The camera then transmits video images to the camera operator who views the video image on a TV monitor right alongside the customer. The video footage can be saved onto a DVD or memory stick for future reference. Another benefit to video camera line inspection is that radio transmitters record the depth and location from the surface so that obstructions and defects can be quickly found and corrected efficiently and cost effectively.

Roto-Rooter plumbers have also used video camera snakes to locate lost valuables and even remove trapped animals from pipes and sewer drains. Next time you drop a beloved valuable down the drain or suspect an obstruction in your pipes, contact Roto-Rooter for an accurate diagnosis. Call 1-800-768-ROTO-911 (1-800-768-6911).
