Benefits of a Camera Inspection


Spring and summer can cause a wide range of plumbing problems to occur in your home. Because a majority of your system is located underground, behind walls, or in other hard to reach areas, repairs become tricky. It used to be that in order to reach these areas, cutting into your lawn or wall would be necessary. A camera inspection can help rule this out for you. Here are some benefits of scheduling a camera inspection in your home:

Problems a Camera Inspection Can Identify 

  • Tree root damage. Did you know that issues with your plumbing can be caused by tree roots? Most of your plumbing system is underground, so it’s very common for them to cross paths with roots. Your pipes are full of running water and trees are thirsty. In their search for nourishment, they can break into your system and cause damages and blockages. 
  • Old pipes. The older your pipes get, the more susceptible they become to leaks and breakages. Wear and tear over the years weakens your system as well, causing cracks or warping. With a camera inspection, you will be able to visually inspect the age and condition of your plumbing. 
  • Extreme clogs. Because some clogs are impossible to reach without professional help, a camera inspection helps your plumber treat the clog efficiently by finding the direct source.
  • Cracked or misaligned pipes. Deep clogs are often caused by a crack in your pipes or a bad connection between them. A video inspection makes it easier to locate cracks, clogs, and leaks without having to cut into your walls or yard.

Signs You Need a Camera Inspection

A sewer video camera inspection is an invaluable tool for drain cleaning, drain maintenance, and just keeping your plumbing safe.  If you are experiencing any of the following problems in your home, you will definitely benefit from a camera inspection:
