When you face an undetermined problem with your plumbing or sewer line, a camera inspection may be conducted to find the cause of your issues. Sometimes the line is blocked by an obstruction, has a leak, or is affected by grease buildup. Sewer lines are often affected by tree root growth, which causes them to crack and break. They may also have damage from corrosion or pipe sections that are not aligned properly. A plumbing camera inspection can help a plumber verify the cause of your problem and take the best course of action to correct it.
How Does It Work?
A plumbing camera inspection begins with a qualified plumber inserting a flexible rod into your home’s pipes. This rod has a high definition video camera at the end of it and LED lights that illuminate the inside of the pipes, so that an inspection can be conducted. As the camera moves through the pipes, it sends a video signal back to a monitor and makes a recording of the entire length of the pipes. These features allow the plumber to find exactly where the problem lies and create a plan of action to fix the plumbing issue.
Does Your Home Need a Plumbing Camera Inspection?
If you are facing sewer backups, clogs, or slowed drainage on a regular basis and can’t seem to get a correct diagnosis of what the problem is, a camera inspection may help you settle the issue. Although this is the most common reason for such an inspection, new homebuyers and realtors also find this process beneficial. This type of inspection can provide peace of mind to homebuyers who are concerned about costly future plumbing problems.
