Did you know that sewer system video inspections play an important role in determining if you’re having an issues with the sewer system, and if so, where those issues are located? In fact, sewer system video inspections take the guesswork out of sewer line repair. Back in the old days before this simple yet amazing technology was invented, plumbers and repair companies could only take an educated guess as to where the problems within the sewer lines were located. This is due to the fact that plumbing pipes, including water lines, and sewer lines, are typically buried in areas that are out of sight.

For example, both water pipes and sewer pipes are placed in ceilings, walls, and floors on the inside of your property. The water pipes and sewer pipes are located underground when they run through the exterior of your property in order to attach to the main water line and sewer line or septic system. That means the water pipes and sewer pipes are not easy to access. It also makes it next to impossible to locate the issue without the use of video technology. For example, if there is a break or crack in the sewer line, how could you possibly locate the exact area?

The bottom line is that in the old days the exact location of the break or crack could not be located. That means extra demolition of the ceilings, walls, and floors inside the property, and extra excavation or digging up of the ground on the exterior of the property. Thanks to sewer system video inspections that no longer needs to happen. So what exactly is a sewer system video inspection? A technician will insert a tiny waterproof video camera into the sewer line through an access point. The camera is attached to a long cable. The cable is fed through the sewer pipes.

As the cable is fed through the sewer pipes the video camera is taking real time footage of the interior of the sewer pipes. It is also recording the footage for future use. The technician can view the footage in real time as the cable is being fed through the sewer line. The video camera shows even the smallest details. That means the technician can see exactly what is going on within the sewer pipes. The technician can also pinpoint the exact location of the clog, crack, or break in the sewer line if there is a problem. If you are experiencing any issues with the sewer system it is a smart idea to schedule sewer system video inspections.

It is also a good idea to schedule sewer system video inspections on a yearly basis as a preventative maintenance measure.
