The days of guessing what the problem is with your sewer system are over. Did you know that sewer video inspection is the way to go if you’re having any issues with the toilets, drains, or sewer pipes at your property? So, what exactly is a sewer video inspection? In essence, it is a technologically advanced method of seeing exactly what is going on inside of your sewer pipes. A sewer video inspection works in the following manner. An experienced sewer video inspection technician will arrive at your property with the proper equipment.

He or she will then insert a tiny, waterproof video camera that is attached to the end of a flexible cable in your sewer pipes. You don’t need to worry about the technician cutting out any holes in order to access the sewer system. He or she will use an existing access point such as a drain cleanout. The technician will then feed the cable and camera through the sewer pipes. As the camera slowly travels through the system it is both recording the footage in real time and broadcasting the footage back to the technician.

The Sewer video inspection technician can view the live footage of the interior of your sewer pipes on a laptop computer or handheld electronic device such as a tablet or smartphone. As the camera works its way through the sewer pipes the technician is able to see if there any issues within the sewer pipes such as blockages, cracks in the pipeline or holes in the sewer pipe. The camera is recording and broadcasting in High Definition so even the smallest issues are visible to the eye.

The technician is also looking for the build up of debris that can easily turn into a block or clog in the future. If there are any problems within the sewer system the technician can record the exact location of the problems. That way the problems are very easy to locate when it comes time to have them repaired. Speaking of which, some issues require immediate repair, while others do not. That being stated, if the problem does not require immediate attention, it’s always a smart idea to schedule another sewer video inspection in 6 months or a year down the road.

That way the technician can see if the problem is getting worse to the point that it needs to be dealt with at that time. You should schedule a sewer video inspection on a regular basis as part of your property maintenance tasks. If you received a clean bill of health last year and the year before that’s a good thing. However, it doesn’t mean that an issue isn’t brewing at the present time. Catching problems with your sewer system early can make a world of difference.
