What is a Sewer Camera Inspection?

Sewer video cameras have become one of the most valuable and remarkable tools for investigating leaks and pipes. Fiber optic cameras have been specially formatted for such a purpose and create a visual inspection process for underground sewer lines and other piping. This highly specialized procedure allows plumbing contractors and homeowners advanced knowledge of problems occurring in pipes without having to dig and investigate blindly. Sewer camera inspection can save you time and money for your sewer line repair. If you have been having issues with your drain or sewage backups, call Service Force Plumbing for sewer camera inspection in Rockville, MD.

Why You Need a Sewer Camera Inspection

If the plumbing problem is not easily diagnosed, it’s preferable for a plumber to have strong, non-invasive ways of investigating a prevailing issue. While our plumbers won’t always need to utilize technology to diagnose a leak, it’s comforting to know that such tools are available in lieu of an expensive and potentially wasteful process. Here is a list of reasons why you need a sewer camera inspection in Rockville, MD.

  • No guessing. Whatever certifications your plumber may possess, he or she doesn’t have x-ray vision. The pipes that are typically inspected using a sewer camera are buried four to six feet underground. There is no way to investigate inside these pipes without digging them up and excavating.
  • Depth and Detail. Camera inspection equipment provides a clear video of your sewer lines in great detail. Usually, there is a depth and distance tracker installed on the camera, which lets the plumber know where the problem is located in the sewer line.
  • Security. At the end of the day, it’s important to know what you’re getting into. When it comes to things you can’t necessarily see, it’s important to have visual validation of the exact problem. Having a visual aid helps everyone involved.

Plumbing technicians are able to visually confirm most breaks, fractures, root damage, and corrosion using sewer cameras. Whether the problem is due to a clog caused by tree roots, or corrosion, our plumbing contractors can determine what to do next. Sometimes, our plumbing technicians will advise using a rooting machine, or a hydro-jetting cleaner to blast the debris away. For leaks and fractures in the plumbing line, a resin-based cured-in-place-pipe substance may be used.

For all of these procedures, a digital fiber-optic camera is indispensable. The time it takes to excavate pipes that are four to six feet deep and then open them up and determine what is wrong takes an extraordinary amount of time, money, and effort. By opening up one piece of pipe and placing a camera in the pipeline, both plumbing contractors and the homeowner can diagnose how to fix the problem in a cost-effective, and time-effective way. To figure out what is going on with your sewer lines without ripping up your entire yard, call Service Force Plumbing at 301-841-6284 for a sewer camera inspection in Rockville, MD. Once we know what is wrong with your sewer line, we can make the necessary repairs.
