How Sewer Camera Inspections Are Done

Sewer issues can be some of the most inconvenient and potentially expensive to resolve. Partly because the pipes and lines connecting our homes and businesses to the main sewer system are mostly underground, making them difficult to access. To identify problems and properly carry out the necessary sewer line repair in Stow, OH, technicians often perform camera inspections. Curious to know how this process works? C. Lee Services is here to break it down for you.

The Equipment Used

Modern sewer cameras are small, yet high-tech. There are different types, but for the most part, they are designed with a high-resolution lens and LED lights to illuminate the dark, damp areas where they travel. The camera is attached to a flexible rod or push cable, and it’s connected to a video monitor through which your sewer pipe line repair technician can view the live feed.

The Inspection Process

First, the plumber will locate an accessible entry point to your sewer system. This could be a cleanout or even by removing a toilet. They will then insert the camera and maneuver it through the pipes to get an accurate picture of what’s going on inside. The footage is transmitted to the monitor in real-time, which allows close examination of different sections of your sewer line.

What Can Be Revealed

The technician will look for various issues such as blockages, cracks or breaks, misaligned pipes, and root intrusions. They measure the depth and the distance of identified problems. The camera inspection can also reveal the overall condition of your sewer line, indicating whether a simple fix or a complete sewer line replacement is required.

Once the inspection is complete, the equipment is retracted, and the technician will provide you with a detailed report of their findings and recommendations. They may also include a recording of the inspection footage for your reference. Based on the results, you and your technician can discuss the best course of action to address any issues found, from minor restorations to a new sewer line installation.
