Residential and commercial sewer systems are mechanical by design, and much like any machine they tend to break down when we least expect it to happen. Most property owners can certainly figure out that there is a problem based on the function or lack thereof of the plumbing. For example, if multiple drains are not working properly at the same time that is a red flag that there is trouble brewing. If there is a strange bubbling sound emanating from the bathroom and it is not your stomach it should be more than obvious that the sewer system is having some major issues.
Last but certainly not least, if raw sewage is backing up into the drains, faucets, and or toilet bowl that is a telltale sign that something has gone horribly wrong with the sewer system. Although it may be obvious that there is a problem, figuring out exactly what is causing it, and the most effective way of fixing the issue is another thing altogether. Although most sewer related breakdowns are found in the sewer pipelines, they are typically located in hard to reach places either underground or buried in the concrete slab or foundation.
Thankfully, recent technology has made it possible to inspect sewers and pipes without the need to gain physical access to the entire pipeline. In fact, a top-notch plumber in Montgomery, AL, will have the ability and proper equipment to provide their customers with a sewer camera inspection. This is accomplished through the use of a small, waterproof video camera that is attached to the end of a flexible rod. In essence the rod is snaked through the sewer pipe in order to see exactly what is going on inside of it.
Since the video camera helps the plumber to locate the exact location and cause of the problem, in turn it significantly reduces the time it takes to perform the repair work. For example, in the old days before advanced video technology plumbing contractors relied on costly excavations in order to expose and then examine the entire sewer pipeline. It was the only way they could locate and fix the problem. Of course anytime that heavy-duty construction machines are involved it means a lot more money out of the property owner’s pocket.

What is a Sewer Camera Inspection?
A sewer video inspection involves sending a small camera down your pipes. We will receive a video feed of the interior of your pipes. The feed will help us in determining exactly what the problem is before starting our work.
If there is a blockage the camera is able to detect the exact location and cause of the clog. Valuable information is relayed in real-time. This is due to the fact that advanced technology is streaming a live feed that is viewable on a video monitor such as the plumber’s laptop, tablet, or smartphone. In addition, the live feed can be recorded and saved for future reference. This certainly helps if your insurance company needs proof of the damage and or you would like to have a record of the problem for your own personal files.
