When Do I Need a Video Sewer Inspection?, Norwalk, Connecticut

If you want to know what’s going on in your plumbing in real time, your best option is a video sewer inspection. During this type of inspection, your plumber will insert a sewer camera through your drain and show you a high-definition video feed of the inside of your pipes. This procedure is useful in several circumstances.

Commercial Maintenance

If you own a business, any problems with the plumbing can make a significant impact on your livelihood. By scheduling regular video sewer inspections, you can get a first-hand look at your pipes and catch any problems early, including pipe corrosion, buildup, and growing clogs. This procedure is recommended every six months, so you can avoid any interruptions to business.

Stubborn Blockage

Video Sewer InspectionIf you’re coping with a clogged drain that simply won’t respond to normal treatments, a video inspection can help locate the clog and identify the problem. If fixing the blockage requires digging down to your pipes, the sewer camera is equipped with a transmitter which will help your plumber dig in the right location.

Plumbing Addition

If you’re planning a major change to the plumbing in your home or business — such as adding a new bathroom — a video sewer inspection is recommended to make sure your pipes are up to the increased demand. Again, this process also helps when planning and completing excavation to lay the new pipes.
