Camera Inspection

A Sewer Camera is used to provide a visual inspection of inaccessible lines. Obstructions and damages underground or within concrete slabs can be viewed with a sewer camera. Specially made waterproof cameras allow for a visual inspection of sewer lines and other pipes that are underground, in cement, and under your home’s foundation. A professional technician at Churchwell Plumbing inserts a flexible rod with a high-resolution video camera on its tip into pipes from 2 inches to 36 inches in diameter. The flexible rod allows the camera to travel through the pipe—even around corners—to see the pipe in its entirety. Real-time video image transmission allows the technician to determine the condition of the inside of the pipe and understand any existing or potential problems. The images can be saved for a permanent record.

Why Do I need Sewer Camera Inspection?

While underground plumbing systems are generally of very high quality and provide many years of service, they sometimes can pose problems. Damage can occur deep within the plumbing system. A video camera can identify collapsed pipes, corroded pipes, blockages from grease or other household elements, root infiltrations, and pipes that are off-line due to ground settling. Video cameras have also been used to locate lost jewelry and other valuables, as well as animals that have become lost or trapped in pipes.

Identifying Sewer Problems

A video camera inspection is recommended if you experience repeated drain line backups, slow drains, or clogs. Additionally, a video camera inspection before you purchase a home will help ensure that sewer lines are free of problems that can cause headaches and expensive repairs after you move in.

How It Works

Radio transmitters on the camera record the depth and physical location from the surface of any defect or obstructions so that your technician can accurately diagnose and solve any drain line concerns. There is no guesswork, so your problems will be resolved quickly and cost-effectively.

Churchwell Plumbing can record the video inspection and then show you the reason why these pipes within your home are blocked. Call us today to schedule an inspection!   806-744-4939.
