Sewer Camera Inspection

If you suspect issues with your pipes or sewer lines, don’t hesitate to contact a professional plumbing company. A plumber can locate the problem with a sewer inspection camera. This service offers real-time information on your sewer via a live stream feed, so you can get the most accurate understanding of what’s blocking your pipes.

Ravinia Plumbing, Sewer, Heating, and Electric provides high-quality sewer line camera inspections in Chicago’s North Shore and Chicago’s Northwest suburbs, including Highland Park, Buffalo Grove, Lincolnshire, and more.

How Does a Sewer Camera Inspection Work?

A sewer video inspection aims to find out what is causing a backup or blockage within the sewer pipe without digging the ground up or guessing what the problem is. Repairing and replacing pipes is a menacing task, so this inspection prevents homeowners from having to immediately pay for the problems to be fixed until they know the extent of the issue.

The sewer camera is small and flexible and fastened to a snake-like cable fed through the pipe until it reaches the problem area. When you call for sewer camera inspection services, you can expect this process:

  • The plumber pushes the camera head into the sewer. Bright lights on the camera head illuminate the interior, allowing the plumber to see every part of the pipe.
  • The camera transmits its image to a monitor for immediate viewing and recording for later viewing.
  • A radio transmitter embedded in the camera sends out a signal that can be detected with an electronic locating device to pinpoint the line’s exact location and depth from the surface. Hence, the plumber knows where to dig.
  • Then, the plumber diagnoses the issue and arranges for the best solution.

Benefits of Sewer Camera Inspections

Sewer camera inspection services offer a variety of benefits, including:

Ensure That the Issue is Addressed Properly

Sewer cameras give homeowners and technicians the assurance they need to move forward with immediate repairs on a property’s plumbing. Technicians can point to the exact location of the blockage and create an immediate and accurate repair plan to ensure the job is performed correctly.

This immediate action also prevents further damage from happening in the future, saving you money in the long run. We provide a less invasive alternative for your yard and eliminate the higher costs of excessive digging to find the problem’s location.

Eliminate Guesswork

No matter how qualified your plumber is, even they can’t see underground. A sewer camera inspection eliminates the guesswork for your technicians. You will walk away from the service with a clear understanding of what work is needed to fix any blockages underground.

Accurate Diagnosis

Sewer cameras provide highly accurate diagnoses of plumbing problems because of the high-quality image resolution. Instead of an educated guess, which could cause further issues, it gives you indisputable evidence of what needs to be fixed.

A definite diagnosis will also lead to stronger insurance claims if necessary.
