Are you experiencing plumbing issues that you can’t seem to pinpoint? A sewer camera will give you an inside look at your pipes and help you figure out what’s going on. During this process, a technician will run a video line through either your home’s branch lines — which connect to your shower and sink drains — or your sewer line — which links to the municipal sewer line. Here are a few issues that a sewer camera can catch.
How a Video Sewer Inspection Can Help
1. Pipe Erosion
When your pipes are eroding or otherwise damaged, your home’s sewer system is at major risk. When not caught early, corrosion can require you to replace the sewer line — an expensive and time-consuming process. Common signs of corroding pipes include a weird taste or smell in the water, discoloration, leaks, and clogging. A video inspection will catch early signs of corrosion before these symptoms start to pop up.
2. Clogged Drain
One of the earliest and most common signs that your drain is clogged is if your plumbing fixtures are draining slowly — or not at all. Sometimes the blockage occurs deep in your pipes and takes a while to make its way closer to the surface. When you can’t catch the issue early, the fix is much simpler. A sewer camera will detect clogs that are deep within your pipes, making it easier and faster to find a solution.
3. Reasons for Smells
Is there a foul odor coming from the drains in your home? There can be several reasons for these unusual smells, from pipe erosion and clogged drains to a sewer backup and leaking pipes. The easiest way to troubleshoot a foul odor is with a sewer camera. You’ll find the root of the issue quickly instead of wasting time — and money — eliminating other options before arriving at the correct one.
