How Are Sewer Cameras Used In Sewer Line Inspection?

Sewer Camera Inspection By Leone Plumbing Before the advent of sewer cameras, excavation was the only option to determine the sewer lines’ condition. Digging may leave a big mess and causes inconvenience not only to you but also with nearby residences or establishment. Today, the job becomes easy with sewer cameras. Doing sewer line inspection with a camera only needs a small entry point. The sewer camera is connected to a flexible cable, and the plumber can watch through a monitor as the gadget travels through the sewer line. Our licensed plumbers now have the ability to see the undetected problems within the sewage pipe.

Common Findings Of Sewer Camera Inspection

The sewer camera findings can help us pinpoint unseen sewer line problems such as:
Tree Roots Invasion
A single undetected crack in your sewer pipe can allow tree roots to invade your sewer line and grow into it. This will cause serious damage to your sewer line if not prevented.
Damaged Pipes
With the help of a sewer camera, unseen damaged pipes can be detected.
Bellied Sewer Line
When the sewer line starts to crumple, waste gets trapped which causes multiple blockages.
Accumulated Blockages
Over time, there can be a build-up of blockages in your sewer line. Items such as towels, feminine bathroom products, and dips in the underground plumbing due to settling dirt over the years can be detected by sewer cameras.

Types of Sewer Cameras

There are many types of sewer cameras available in the market. You can find a wide range of sewer cameras from RIDGID. We have been using RIDGID cameras for our sewer inspection. Here are some of the camera types you can find. Sewer Cameras Used By Leone Plumbing
Manual Feed Black and White Camera
This is the most basic sewer pipe camera. You will only see things black and white. But if your purpose is to only look for blockages in the line, then this is useful.
Power Feed with Either Color or Black and White Camera
This camera type automatically snakes its way through the drain and pipes whenever you press a button and put the camera down the pipe to get it started. It stops when it hits a blockage. You have the option to choose a black and white or full-color video to identify what the blockage is.
Power Feed with Color Camera and Recording Features
The camera system has a recording feature that records what the camera sees in the pipe. With this type of camera, we can further study and find a better solution to solve sewer line issues. This camera has an SD memory card that plugs into a special slot inside the main compartment of the camera’s handheld monitor.

Two different days of service included a severely clogged bathroom sink drain being cleared of decades of accumulated sludge. The action needed was more than a simple drain clearing with chemicals or a plunger. I was and am very satisfied with the degree of efficiency and persistence on the part of the two individuals who worked to resolve the clog. Water has continued to flow without any delays in the sink emptying. No leaks occurred under the sink after everything had to be pulled apart to clear the clog.

The second need for service involved a basement water back up resulting from days of heavy rainfall. Water was coming in from the floor drain and through the concrete floor. In addition, the old sump pump was working but severely deteriorated and near ready to fail. New larger drainpipes replaced old ones and a sump pump was acquired and put in place. Water was extracted with a wet vac and all areas were mopped up. Subsequent heavy rainfall has not been problematic.

I am grateful for the immediate response in both instances. The need for plumbing services happened just a couple weeks apart. In both instances, service was immediate, efficient, effective and courtesy was exemplary. I am grateful for all kindness and efficient service.

Great job! Thank you, sincerely.

Our water heater went out on a Friday afternoon (as expected this was a terrible time with many companies being booked up). Leone plumbing scheduled us for the next day, but we got lucky and someone ended up being available sooner. They were quick, professional and we would absolutely use this company again!
