If you need a Drainage or Sewer Camera Inspection and live in the Langley, Surrey or Abbotsford area, Call Us. Sewer or drain video camera equipment is used to perform pipe or drain inspection of a sanitary sewer system or issues with drainage pipes. The infrared camera is inserted into system through existing cleanouts, roof vents, or toilet drains to observe and analyze the condition of a sub-slab drain system. Exact locations of obstructions, breaks, stoppages or deteriorated pipes can be determined with the camera inspection along with approximate depth of the pipe.
One of the absolute worst places to need plumbing repairs is in the sewer line. That’s the main outtake pipe that removes all the used grey water and waste from you home and into the municipal sewage system. When that waste water starts backing up into your house, not only is it gross, it can foretell a very difficult and expensive repair. Since the sewer pipe is often buried by several feet of dirt and pavement, it’s difficult to even diagnose what the problem is without a major excavation. Fortunately, one of the increasing popular Drainage & Sewer services available is inspection by camera, which allows technicians to discover and diagnose problems in your sewer pipe without having to dig it up first.
If you are lucky, a clog in the sewer line is just a buildup of hair and household waste. Worse is an accumulated crystallization of soap and grease, but both of those problems can be addressed without tearing up the yard. The worst case scenario is a break in the sewer or drainage line itself, perhaps from a tree root invading into it and allowing dirt to cave in the passageway. Although there are less invasive ways of fixing underground sewer or drainage line problems, such as trenchless plumbing repair, sometimes the only solution is to dig, which be costly. With a camera diagnosis, you can at least take solace in the knowledge that you would not be excavating the yard if it was not absolutely necessary. Therefore, before you schedule a costly and invasive diagnostic visit with a contractor, ask if they can provide the service more efficiently with a camera.
