Benefits of Using a Sewer Drain Camera for Inspection

Benefits of A Sewer Drain Camera

Since most of us do not care where the water goes once it has gone down a drain, it is easy to be caught unawares by a clog in the sewer line. A blockage in the sewer line can bring an entire household to a standstill. Luckily, it is easier for an experienced plumber to detect the source of the clog and clear it.

Advancement in technology has made diagnosing drain issues and inspecting sewer drain easier with the use of a sewer drain camera. A sewer camera inspection pinpoints the drain’s exact problem and helps in knowing what equipment is needed and the right technique to use to save both money and time.

A sewer drain camera has a radio transmitter and infrared lighting to illuminate the inside of the drainpipe. The camera is attached to the end of a sewer cable and pushed down the sewer line or drain. A technician will be maneuvering the camera in the drain while another technician will be receiving the live feed transmitted from the camera to a monitor.

It is not only when there is a clogging in the sewer drain that a sewer drain camera can be used to inspect and discover the problem, it can also be used to pre-screen homes before they are sold, to ensure that the sewer is in good condition.

What are the Benefits of Using a Sewer Drain Camera for Inspection?

1. It Can Be Used Anywhere

Finding a clog in a sewer line used to be a costly headache. If the clog happened to be under the home’s foundation or concrete, it was a difficult task to get access to the line. However, the camera inspection makes it possible to find the clog, no matter how deep or far it might be located.

2. It Is More Accurate

A sewer drain camera can be used to determine the exact location of the clog in the line, visually identify a break, determine the location of a break in the drain, and ascertain the present condition of the sewer line. Consequently, the damage can be repaired more accurately and quickly, and the plumbing system restored to full functionality in less time.

3. It Can Discover More Sewer Line Problems

The camera inspection method can reveal other problems that the sewer line has, such as damages caused by a tree root, slow leaks in the pipe, and severely rusted pipes with an evidence of a recorded video.

4. It Can Help To Prevent Further Blockages
