Sewer Camera Inspections
Modern developments in technology and miniaturization have provided professional plumbers with handy devices known as sewer cameras. Plumbing experts use these specially-developed, waterproof instruments to visually inspect your underground plumbing system's sewer lines and other components.
What Causes Clogged Sewer Pipes?
One of the leading causes of sewer problems is root infiltration. Tree roots are constantly looking for water sources and will make their way into your sewer system. They'll continue to grow until a piece of the root has filled the pipe.
Debris from your home, like toilet paper and grease, travels through sewer pipes and gathers around any intruding roots, blocking water flow. The root will continue growing and become large enough to strain the pipe, forcing it to split.
Tree roots aren't the only culprits blocking or damaging the sewer line. Soil can shift, or the ground can freeze, which can cause the pipe to crack and collapse. Grease, paper, hair, and foreign objects can prevent a smooth outflow, and aging pipes can rust or break.
No matter what is causing the blockage, a sewer camera inspection from our Houston specialists can pinpoint the problem and allow our team at Leveled to formulate a diagnosis.
How Sewer Camera Inspections Work
One of our trained sewer camera inspection technicians in Houston will begin your sewer camera inspection by inserting a shaft with a high-resolution camera on it into your sewer line. These shafts are flexible, allowing them to easily move through the twists and turns of your sewer lines. Our Houston plumbing and drain line inspection specialists will complete a comprehensive inspection of pipes ranging from 2 to 36 inches in diameter.
The technician receives the real-time camera footage, allowing them to immediately analyze the condition of your plumbing system. They'll see any issues on the monitor, and we'll even store the footage for future reference.
