What is a Sewer Camera Inspection?

A sewer camera inspection is an innovative method to evaluate the condition of your home’s sewer lines, identify potential issues, and determine the most effective course of action for repairs or maintenance. This non-invasive, modern technique involves inserting a specialized waterproof camera mounted on a flexible cable into your sewer pipes, providing a real-time visual inspection of the pipe’s interior.

Common Plumbing Issues Detected by Sewer Camera Inspections

Sewer camera inspections can reveal various plumbing issues, allowing for precise diagnosis and quicker, more effective repairs. Some common issues detected through sewer camera inspections include:

1. Tree Root Intrusion

Tree roots can infiltrate your home’s sewer lines, causing blockages, pipe damage, and other plumbing problems. Sewer camera inspections can accurately identify root intrusion, helping plumbers devise an appropriate strategy for addressing the issue and preventing further damage.

2. Pipe Damage

A wide range of factors, including age, corrosion, and soil movement, can cause cracks, breakages, and collapses in your sewer pipes. By using a sewer camera to inspect your home’s sewer lines, technicians can precisely pinpoint damaged areas that need immediate repair or replacement.

3. Blockages and Clogs

Whether caused by debris, grease buildup, or household items, blockages and clogs in your sewer lines can lead to slow drains, foul odors, and even wastewater backups. Sewer camera inspections can quickly detect and locate obstructions allowing for targeted, efficient removal of blockages.

4. Pipe Corrosion

Over time, corrosion and deterioration can compromise the structural integrity of your sewer pipes. Sewer camera inspections can reveal signs of corrosion, allowing for timely repairs or replacement of affected pipes before they fail entirely.

Advantages of Sewer Camera Inspections

Utilizing sewer camera inspections for your Los Angeles home offers several benefits compared to traditional methods, including:

1. Non-Invasive Diagnosis

Traditional methods of diagnosing plumbing issues could involve digging up your yard and extensive damage to your property. Sewer camera inspections offer a non-invasive alternative, allowing plumbers to examine your home’s sewer lines without the need for destructive digging.

2. Time Efficiency

Sewer camera inspections can quickly identify the source of plumbing problems, eliminating the guesswork and saving both time and labor. This streamlines the entire process, from diagnosis to repair, providing a faster resolution to your plumbing concerns.

3. Accurate and Reliable

The real-time video feed from sewer cameras ensures accurate and reliable detection of existing and potential issues within your home’s sewer lines. This enables homeowners to address even minor issues proactively, preventing more significant problems and expenses in the future.

4. Cost Savings

By pinpointing the exact location of plumbing issues, sewer camera inspections minimize the amount of labor needed, reducing the overall cost of repairs. Furthermore, detecting and addressing plumbing problems early through regular inspections can help homeowners avoid more extensive, expensive repairs down the road.

Our water heater began spewing water this morning.  John was the first plumber in the area to answer my call, and was able to get to my house within 10 minutes of the call.  He fixed the problem promptly and for what seemed to be a reasonable price.  He was friendly and informative.  I will definitely call John again and will recommend him to neighbors.  Thanks, John!

John has done numerous plumbing projects around my house and has always done excellent work.  He's quick to respond to my inquiry's and even replaced my water heater on a Sunday.  Most recently, I had him install a water purification system and new faucet.  His prices are reasonable and he will continue to be my go-to plumber.

Project: Install, Repair or Replace Plumbing or Fixtures

Comments: I am very pleased. I've had John do the top priority job of repairing a leaking drainpipe and his work looks to be top notch. I'm definitely thinking of using him for the larger job of repiping the whole house (replacing the failing M-type copper with L-type). And again, John's bid is within my budget considerations. Highly recommended.

Camera Locate Breakage for a Plumbing System

Comments: We had them run a snake from our sewer line out to the street, as we have lots of trees with roots that sometimes get into the line. They came as scheduled, did a great job and the price was as quoted.
