Video Sewer Inspection

Sewer video inspection allows you and your plumbing technician to analyze the condition of your sewer pipe without needing to dig the entire thing up, saving you inconvenience, time, and hundreds or even thousands of dollars in labor costs. Additionally, you will have a clear picture of the condition of your pipe and pinpoint the location of cracks, leaks, clogs, and weakened spots, making it easy to direct repairs or replacement to the exact places they’re needed.
To perform a video inspection, the plumber will drain and flush the sewer line to get it as clean as possible, the better to check for potential damage to the pipe walls. The plumber will then extend a flexible line down your sewer, tipped with a video camera and lights to illuminate the line for filming. The line is slowly extended, pushing the camera the length of the sewer, and then withdrawn.

When your video sewer inspection has been completed, the plumber will always provide you with a DVD of the results to review. Don’t trust a plumber who won’t give you a copy of the video, and make sure the recording shows enough aboveground identifying marks to guarantee the pipe is your own. Unfortunately, there are dishonest plumbers who will try to pass off video of someone else’s damaged sewer line as your own.

With the video in hand, you and your plumber will be able to study the pipe as if from inside and put together a plan and estimates for repair. Having the inspection ensures that the repair work will be faster and more precise. Video inspection will also turn up potential future trouble spots that might otherwise be missed, so you can rest easy knowing that

Video inspection can be a valuable tool for more than just sewer repair. If you’re buying or selling a house, video inspection can help you determine and document the condition of the sewer line. A video inspection can also help you determine the exact depth and extent of the sewer, which is valuable information if you’re doing anything that involves extensive digging in the area, including building an addition, planting trees, sinking posts for a fence, or installing a sprinkler system.
