What Is a Sewer Camera Inspection?

If your home is constantly plagued with sewer backups or sewer pipe damages, please contact Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Youngstown for a sewer camera inspection. The video camera inspection is the most efficient way to discover or detect hidden sewer damages that are not visible to the naked eyes.

How do Sewer Line Cameras Work?

The main purpose of using a sewer camera is to find out exactly the causes of sewer blockages, and backups within the sewer pipes without taking a guess or digging the yard. With video camera inspection, homeowners can avoid expensive repairs that might be caused by digging and it makes sewer line repairs and replacement faster.

The video camera inspection works with the attachment of a tiny and flexible sewer camera to a snake-like cable that is fed into the sewer line until it connects with the cause of the sewer line blockage. The radio transmitter attached to the camera will transmit the location of the sewer line and tells the plumber where the blockage is located, and the work that needs to be done to fix the issue.

What Types of Sewer Problems Can a Video Inspection Identify?

A video inspection carried out by Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Youngstown, can identify all problems in a sewer line. Tree root infiltration is one of the commonest problems that can be identified by video camera inspection. Tree root infiltration is most prominent in older sewer pipes made of clay, and cast iron. The tree roots grow through the sewer pipes when they detect water and nutrient in and around such pipes.

Brocken collapsed and cracked sewer pipes can also be detected through Video camera inspection. Since the video camera moves along the pipe, a plumber can tell where the cracks are located. Major blockages in sewer lines can also be detected easily by video camera inspection. Grease, Gunk, and paper are some of the commonest items forced through sewer lines, that can cause blockages.

Sagging and Bellied sewer lines can also be detected through video camera inspection. Wastes normally get caught up in bellied sections of sewer lines, this will eventually lead to repeated blockages.
