Troubleshooting Drain Problems with A Camera Inspection

How We Discover Hidden Issues

Most homeowners will experience a clogged drain at some point in their life. Sometimes these are an easy fix and you just need your handy plunger or a quick drain snaking. Other times, the problem is more complex and requires further investigation to determine the root of the issue.

There are several warning signs of a clogged drain, such as slow-draining drains, gurgling, unpleasant smells coming from the drain, or water coming back up your drains and other fixtures. If it’s not an easy fix, you may be in need of a sewer line camera inspection to diagnose a larger issue, such as tree roots impacting your underground pipes, large blockages and obstructions, or cracks and damage to your pipes.

Our sewer line camera inspection service will give our experts a better understanding of the condition of your pipes and will reveal what solution is best suited for the problem at hand. This inspection can also be essential in preventative maintenance to save your pipes from plummeting into disastrous conditions.


During a camera inspection of your sewer lines, we can uncover various issues, such as:

  • Broken, cracked, or collapsed pipes
  • Offset pipes caused by shifting soil, frozen ground, or settling
  • The buildup of grease or foreign objects causing restrictions or blockages hindering proper flow and cleaning of the line
  • Corrosion or deterioration of the pipe leading to collapse and restricted water flow
  • Sections of bellied pipe creating a valley that collects waste due to ground or soil conditions
  • Leaking joins due to broken seals between pipes, allowing water to escape into the surrounding area
  • Infiltration of tree or shrub roots into the sewer line, preventing normal cleaning and causing damage
  • Off-grade pipes constructed with substandard or outdated material that may have deteriorated or corroded over time

Process for Sewer Line Camera Inspections 

Our service expert will find a point of access and insert the camera into the sewer line. The camera allows for real-time visual inspection of underground piping to determine the condition inside the pipes. A flexible fiber optic cable feeds the high-resolution camera into the pipe. As the cable is pushed through, the waterproof camera, equipped with powerful lights, records its findings. The video feed is transmitted to our camera operator who will make an informed diagnosis of the problems found. The video inspection can be saved for permanent record.
