Camera Sewer Line Inspection: A Guide To Service For First-Time Customers


There are few things more frustrating for a homeowner than a clogged sewer line, which will leave you without the ability to flush your toilets or even use drains in the kitchen or bathrooms. The inability to eliminate wastewater will no doubt have you ready to tackle the problem head on. However, finding the source of the problem when you have a clogged sewer line is not always an easy feat since the majority of the lines are buried beneath the ground. For this reason, contacting a plumber who offers camera sewer line inspections is one of the most intelligent decisions to make when you're in this situation. Here is a quick look at a few of the most common questions about camera sewer line inspection and the answers you will want to know. 

How does camera sewer line inspection work?

When you have a plumber come to your home for a video inspection, they will use a small, waterproof video camera attached to a feeder line to enter your drains. The camera takes video and transmits it back to a watching device, which could either be a laptop or a basic smartphone. The drains can be entered at several points, whether it is from the drain line in your kitchen or even down through the toilet. The plumber may even take a look at the sewer system from several points of access until he tracks down the source of the clog. 

What are the advantages of a camera sewer line inspection?

The primary advantage of having a clogged sewer line inspected by a professional with a camera is the fact that the problem can usually be tracked down a lot more quickly. Because the plumber can then go directly to the issue and make the necessary repairs, the repair process doesn't take as long, which is always beneficial. However, this also usually means you will save money on service costs in the end. 

Can the plumber inspect your sewer lines even if you are connected to a septic tank?

It does not matter whether the lines you have eliminating waste water from your home lead to a public sewer system or to a private residential septic tank, the video investigation process can be extremely helpful. Most of the time, the lead-away lines are similar in form and function, so where the waste finally lands does not interfere with the video camera inspection process.

Children and Remodeling Projects Can Co-exist

When my family realized that we were "outgrowing" our home, we decided to peruse the local homes for sale, but didn't find any suitable for our family. We didn't want to move too far, because our children were thriving in our local schools. We then decided that remodeling our current home was a much better option, but we weren't sure if we could still live our daily lives normally while the work was being performed. We also worried that our littlest ones would pester the workers or end up in hazardous situations. When the project started, we quickly learned that it would be much less chaotic than we expected. Our little ones loved watching the workers, and it turned out to be a great learning experience for us all! I decided to start a blog to help other families considering home improvement projects, so come back soon for tips!
