What is the purpose of sewer line inspection camera?

Specially made waterproof cameras allow for a visual inspection of sewer lines and other pipes that are underground, in cement and under your home’s foundation. Using a sewer video camera line takes the mystery out of problems hiding in pipes.

How does a sewer line inspection camera work?

Your professionally trained Roto-Rooter technician inserts a flexible rod with a high-resolution video camera on its tip into the pipe. The flexible rod allows the camera to travel through the pipe to see the pipe in its entirety. The technician can then determine the condition of the inside of the pipe and understand any existing or potential problems.

During a sewer video camera line inspection, radio transmitters on the camera record the depth and physical location from the surface of any defect or obstructions to accurately diagnose and solve any drain line concerns. There is no guesswork, so your problems will be resolved quickly and cost effectively.Camera inspection

What problems can be identified using a sewer line camera?

A sewer video camera line can identify many problems, such as root intrusion and pipe that is misaligned, broken, punctured, off-grade or corroded. The camera also identifies grease buildup, leaks and obstructions. The inspection can be repeated after any service is performed to verify that the line has been properly cleaned or repaired.

When should my pipes undergo an inspection using a sewer line inspection camera?

This type of inspection is recommended if you experience repeated drain line backups, slow drains or clogs. Additionally, if this inspection is performed before you purchase a home, it will help ensure that sewer lines are free of problems that can cause headaches and expensive repairs after you move in.
