Sewer Camera

Sewer Camera Services

Sewer pipes can suffer from failures just like everything else. From faulty materials or installation, items getting stuck in the line, invasive roots or something else sewer lines can stop functioning. Due to the concealed nature of the sewer system it is usually very difficult to locate where and diagnose what is causing the problem.  In the past plumbers have had to guess at the hidden problems in the piping, guessing can become very expensive as it usually involves many dig ups that are not needed.  Today we can use modern technology: sewer cameras with a color monitor that can be visually seen by ourselves and our clients during the inspection process.

Sewer cameras enable us to repair only what is necessary and leave alone your structurally sound piping which saves you money, mess and aggravation. The camera can be inserted through different sizes of pipes in order to find the root of the problem while using transmitters to find the depth and location of the problem enabling us to give firm quotes with no unpleasant surprises.

How do we do it?

We use the latest in sewer camera technology to see what is happening deep in the pipes of your plumbing system.  One of our technicians uses a special sewer-camera assembly which consists of a fiber optic camera and a monitor. The fiber optic camera is fed by the technician into the sewer pipe through a clean-out or other accessible opening. The whole process is recorded on DVD for further review. The system gives us valuable information besides just the video feed. It also tells us how many feet into the pipe the camera is, and it also has a special transponder on the tip which allows us to locate precisely where the unit is below ground.  This reduces the disruption caused by repairs because we can dig at the exact point of failure. This really is the best technology out there!
