Video Camera Plumbing Pipe Inspection

Sewer line cleaning can become a necessity for various reasons. The first and most obvious reason sewer pipes require cleaning is due to the age and inevitable deterioration of the pipes. The pipes may need to be replaced. However, they are designed and installed to last for many years, so something else may be the cause. Another reason your sewer line may be backed up is because of the intrusion of old tree or plant roots. They may have only recently entered your line, but more often than not they have been spreading through a breach in your sewer line for quite some time. In addition to the potential of uncontrollable factors, there may be a build up of non biodegradable items and debris that have built up in your pipeline. Water can no longer pass. Or, your pipes may have been…poorly installed?

The great advantage of such a device is that we are able to view the inner side of your sewer line or storm water line from the inside. The cameras can go down the line up to 100 meters which mostly covers most domestic dwellings and the majority of commercial and industrial buildings.

The video footage can also be stored. We use this method a lot with real estate’s so as we can show the owner. The sewer cameras take out the diagnostic problem.

The video camera pipe has sensors in the actual head of the device. This is important because it tells the plumber exactly where the head of the camera is by; the plumber waves this across the surface marking exactly where the problem is.
