The way plumbing and sewer inspections are done are no longer the same. Rather than play a guessing game and potentially dig up part of your property, or tear up part of your walls, there is now the technology to use a camera to inspect your pipes. Plumbers like SAL Plumbing and Rooter Inc. use a state of the art, high definition camera to inspect home plumbing as well as the sewer lines.

Plumbing and Sewer Camera Inspections
What is a sewer camera inspection? This is a process where plumber or technician takes flexible rod, equipped with high-def camera at one end and inserts into plumbing or sewer line. There is a HD monitor at the other end and between the two, the plumber is able to get a clear view of any damage to pipe. Damage to pipes could be due to a number of things including root intrusion, cracks, corrosion, punctures, misaligned piping, clogs, and blockages.
Benefits of Sewer Camera Inspections
Utilizing a camera during an inspection has many benefits including
- Easily find leaks/breaks: Not all leaks or breaks are easily identifiable. A camera inspection of pipe interiors can help find any “hidden” breaks, holes, or leaks.
- Eliminate digging/excavation: Digging, excavation, and trenches cost time and money. Rather than guess and dig for answers, using a camera eliminates the guesswork.
- Determine condition: Cameras can help understand the condition of pipes, because on the outside they make look fine. But inside, there may be excess buildup, sediment, and even corrosion.
- Reference video: This is very handy to have for insurance purposes. Many realtors will want to know the condition of the pipes. Video references are perfect for that.
The images won’t be pretty, but they will help us to better understand the situation. If and when you do notice any plumbing issues, the most important thing is to find the main water line and turn the water off. Doing so will help prevent further damage to the sewer line, your pipes, and the rest of your home.
Opting for a sewer camera inspection is not always necessary, but it is a highly recommended service. If your home is a newer purchase, having this inspection done can help give you an understanding of the sewer line, as well as the pipes in your home. You can get ahead of any potential problems and possibly even prevent future issues from arising. Even if your home is older, you can still benefit from a sewer camera inspection. So while it’s not necessary, a sewer camera inspection is highly recommended because of how beneficial it really is.
