Sewer Inspection: How It Works

sewer camera inspection services in Montgomery, AL

A lot of things can go on in sewer lines that you're not aware of, including some stuff that could leave you with clogged, backed-up drains, or a soggy yard. This is why the first step often taken by any plumber from the Cole Plumbing team when contacted about a known or suspected sewer issue is to perform an inspection. 

Here's how our sewer camera inspection services in Montgomery, AL work.

Getting Started

One of our plumbing technicians will begin the pipe camera inspection by placing a specialized, high-resolution camera into an opening called a cleanout, which is a service access point that’s typically located outside your home. Our technician then manipulates or maneuvers the camera that’s attached to a long flexible metal cable as it is eased down into the sewer line being inspected.

Receiving and Reviewing Real-Time Images

As the sewer video inspection continues, images from the camera are displayed in real-time on a monitor. The technician watches the monitor and controls the movement of the cable and camera based on what's being seen. The images viewed are also recorded. This is done for reference and so that you can also see what was observed for yourself.

Looking for Anything Out of the Ordinary

With a sewer or drain inspection, our technicians look for anything out of the ordinary in a sewer line. We watch out for potential causes or sources of sewer issues such as tree roots, accumulation of debris, random items that don’t belong in the sewer, cracks, structural damage, and water pooling where it shouldn’t be. 

The results will determine how we can approach the repair process. It's also possible to perform this type of plumbing inspection for routine maintenance purposes. Doing so allows any potential issues to be discovered and dealt with sooner rather than later.
