What Are Sewer Camera Inspections and How Do They Work?

Sewer camera inspections are a non-invasive, efficient, and accurate method for diagnosing potential plumbing issues within your home’s sewer lines and underground pipes. A high-resolution camera attached to a flexible cable is inserted into the pipe, allowing the plumbing technician to visually inspect the interior of your pipes in real time. Here’s a brief overview of how the process works:

1. Access Point: The plumbing technician locates an ideal access point, such as a cleanout, to insert the sewer camera.

2. Camera Insertion: The high-resolution camera and cable are carefully guided into the pipe, transmitting live video footage to a monitor above ground.

3. Inspection and Evaluation: As the camera travels through the pipe, the technician assesses the real-time video feed to identify any signs of damage, blockages, or potential issues.

4. Follow-up and Recommendations: Based on the findings, the plumbing technician will provide you with detailed feedback, discuss potential repairs or maintenance, and recommend the best course of action to address any issues identified.

Benefits of Regular Sewer Camera Inspections for Los Angeles Homeowners

Regular sewer camera inspections offer several benefits for homeowners in terms of both short-term and long-term protection for your home’s plumbing system. Here are the top four advantages:

1. Early Detection of Problems: Sewer camera inspections can identify potential issues before they become serious and costly, such as cracked or damaged pipes, tree root intrusion, and blockages, allowing for proactive repairs and prevention.

2. Accurate Diagnostics: The visual nature of sewer camera inspections ensures accurate identification of issues, enabling the plumbing technician to recommend the most efficient and effective repair solutions tailored to your specific needs.

3. Cost Savings: By detecting and addressing plumbing issues early on, homeowners can avoid expensive emergency repairs, water damage, and other costly consequences that come with neglected sewer line problems.

4. Peace of Mind: Regularly scheduled sewer camera inspections give homeowners the confidence that their plumbing system is well-maintained, safeguarding the health and comfort of their families and protecting their property.

Signs That You May Need a Sewer Camera Inspection in Your Los Angeles Home

While it’s essential to schedule regular sewer camera inspections as a preventative measure, certain signs should prompt you to consider scheduling one sooner. If you notice any of the following in your Los Angeles home, it may be time to call John’s Plumbing & Drain Services for an inspection:

1. Frequent Drain Clogs: Persistent or recurring clogs in your drains might indicate a blockage or other issues within your sewer lines that require a closer look.

2. Foul Odors: Persistent and unpleasant smells coming from your drains could be a sign of blockages or issues with your sewer lines.

3. Slow Draining Water: Slow drains might suggest that there’s a blockage or narrowing in your pipe due to buildup or damage.

4. Lush Patches of Grass: If you notice sections of your lawn that are greener or more lush than the surrounding area, it might indicate a leaking sewer line.

5. Foundation Problems: Signs of foundation issues, such as cracks or settling, may be a result of underlying sewer line problems, which a sewer camera inspection can help diagnose.

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.
