Drain camera inspection has become one of the most commonly used critical tools in the plumbing industry today. A high resolution, waterproof video camera is lowered into the underground sewer lines, drainage, or pipes with a feedback monitor with the inspecting team on-site. The camera provides live footage and a full view of the condition of the drainage or sewer line.

The images of the drain camera inspection are usually copied and saved for a permanent record. This process allows the plumber to know where to focus on the plumbing solution.

Drain camera inspection is usually suggested when the problem with a sewer or drainage system is not known. However, a plumber can recommend drain camera inspection when the following issues are suspected:
- Trees and Roots Invasion
When pipes and the drainage system leaks water due to a crack or break, it feeds tree roots near the drainage system. Over time, the roots will grow into the pipes and cause an invasion and buildup that can result in partial or complete clogging. A drain camera inspection will be able to identify the problem, and the right solution will be implemented to put the drainage system in perfect, functional condition.
- Pipe’s Inner Walls Corrosion
If the pipes or sewer lines in a home are made of iron, it is necessary to examine and assess their condition for possible corrosion. Cast-iron pipes and sewer can corrode and flake, which can make the sewer clogged or choked. Drain camera inspection will help to identify the location of the metal buildup in the sewer system. This is important to prevent the buildup from trapping debris and clogging the entire system.
- Offsets in Joint between Pipes
Sewer lines are usually joined together and comprise different sections. However, little shift in the land outside the home could cause breakage in joints and cause the pipes to clog. Drain camera inspection can help to view the ridges created in the pipes and other causes of clogging. The result of the inspection helps to determine the right solutions to the problems discovered.
- Location of Crushed or Bent Pipes
Pipes can become crushed or bent due to lack of support, the uneven ground under the pipes, or presence of large rocks. This is another problem that a drain camera inspection can help to discover and the right solution will be provided without hassles.
