If you suspect there may be 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 & 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?
The overall aim of a sewer video inspection is 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. The repairing and replacing of 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 is fastened to a snake-like cable that is 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 exact location of the line and depth from the surface and tells so 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 plan for repairs 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 intrusive alternative for your yard and eliminate higher costs of excessive digging to try and find the location of the problem.
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 underneath the property.
Sewer cameras provide extremely accurate diagnoses of plumbing problems because of the high-quality image resolution. Instead of an educated guess, which could potentially cause you further problems in the future, it gives you indisputable evidence of what needs to be fixed.
A definite diagnosis will also lead to stronger insurance claims if necessary.
