Diagnosing problems with underground sewer or water lines has always been a challenge, since the line is located out of sight and visual inspection is difficult without excavation. The development of video camera equipment for use inside plumbing pipes has revolutionized the industry. At Sal Plumbing & Rooter, our plumbers start our services with thorough plumbing camera inspections in Sherman Oaks and surrounding areas.

Plumbing video camera equipment is designed to be waterproof and small enough to fit inside drains and sewer lines. This allows our plumbers to perform a visual inspection of the inside of pipes in real time. These high-resolution cameras are attached to a flexible line that can be put down a drain and travel through the pipes and into the sewer line.
A video image is then transmitted to a handheld monitor, which allows our plumbers to see inside the line and locate the source of a clog or damage. The results of the inspection can give you valuable information about the condition of your pipes and helps us determine the most effective method for resolving problems with your drains or the main sewer line.
“I needed a water heater replaced and Michael and his team did a FANTASTIC job of installing a tankless water heater. They showed up on time and ready to work and even upgraded the tankless so I got a better efficiency machine for my home. The crew is aweso”- Christina M.
Homeowners choose to have their sewer line inspected for a number of reasons. If you are buying or selling a house, it can be helpful to assess the condition of your pipes. In other situations, this technology can be effective for diagnosing problems, such as clogs or damage to the main sewer line. We use sewer camera inspections to troubleshoot drain and sewer line problems.
Sewer camera inspections can detect:
- The location of a blockage in a drain or sewer line
- Leaks, cracks, holes, and other damage
- The overall condition of the line
- Sagging drain lines
- Tree roots growing into the sewer line
- Corroded or broken lines
There are some external signs that can indicate that there is a problem with your sewer line. If you have noticed slow drains in different areas of the house, sewage odors, the sound of water running when the taps are not on, drains backing up, or water or mold damage, contact our professionals for a comprehensive camera inspection.
