A sewer line camera inspection can save you time, money and headache. By threading a small leak detection camera down your sewer line or other pipe, a plumber can discover clogs and cracks that may have otherwise gone unnoticed. They can also pinpoint the location of the damage for repairs.
At Ben Franklin Plumbing, camera inspection is one of the many tools we use to give you the best plumbing service in the Dallas metro area. If your water bill has gone up or if you’ve experienced plumbing issues recently, a quick camera inspection by one of our technicians can detect problems within your pipes.
How A Sewer Drain Camera Works
Our “pipe cam” is a small, high resolution camera that is attached to a long flexible metal cable. Imagine a smartphone camera at the end of a plumbing snake and you’ve got the idea. The camera also has lights to illuminate the inside of the pipe or sewer line it’s inspecting.
Your plumber threads the camera down the sewer via the clean out in your basement or other entry point. He or she will watch the video feed on a small monitor and notice any signs of plumbing problems. Inspection cameras can be maneuvered to closely examine every inch of your sewer line in detail. This footage is recorded so it can be reviewed later if need be.
What You Can See with a Plumbing Leak Detection Camera
Using the camera, your plumber can notice leaks, clogs and cracks that may have gone unnoticed and unaddressed. The camera’s high-definition lens can even pick up tiny hairline fractures that can become bigger problems later on.
The most common concerns with sewer lines are tree roots and sludge build up. With a camera inspection, your plumber can zero in on exactly where the problem lies and treat it accordingly. To clear clogged sewer lines, we use a rooter or a high-powered hydro jet.
If you have a leak or a broken pipe, the camera can help diagnose the best way to repair it. In many cases, plumbers no longer need to dig up your yard to repair a broken sewer line. We can insert a cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) or use pipe bursting to replace the faulty pipe without ever touching your front lawn.
