Sewer camera inspections can be a very valuable tool for locating and managing any sewer line issues. No more digging up the yard trying to guess where a blockage may be or attempting to snake your toilet on your own, hoping to solve the mystery of a clogged toilet. With the technology of modern sewer camera inspections, sewer service companies, like Curt & Jerry Sewer Service, can easily detect and solve most sewer line issues efficiently and in a timely manner.

How Can Sewer Camera Inspections Help With Sewer Line Issues?

Do I Need a Sewer Camera Inspection?

A sewer camera inspection is not something that your home will need frequently. While it’s helpful for detecting obstructions within the sewer line, it can also be helpful in several other situations. When buying or selling a home, a sewer camera inspection can give you information on the true condition of the home’s sewer line. If you’re remodeling a kitchen or adding a bathroom, a video inspection can assist in determining if the home’s current sewer system can handle the increased water needs. 

What Does a Sewer Camera Inspection Reveal?

With a sewer camera inspection, a sewer specialist can view the entire sewer line from your home to any obstructions such as trapped sewage or tree roots. If the tiny video camera can push through these obstructions, it will continue until it hits the city sewer line.

What Happens If a Blockage Is Found?

If the sewer service technician can remove the blockage from within the sewer line the video camera will help them see as they are trying to remove it. If not, the technician will first point the camera, which utilizes a transmitter that broadcasts a signal, directly at the blockage. The technician will then go outdoors and wave a locating device until it picks up the signal. This will tell them exactly where the blockage is so they can dig a sewer trench and remove the obstacle.
