A great distance over the past couple of decades, particularly in terms of newer innovations such as sewer camera inspections. It appears to be a simple procedure—snaking a tiny camera down drains to search for damage—but there was once a time when such technology did not exist. Now, thanks to these miniature and adaptable cameras, the professionals at Alto Sewer Service can perform inspections and sewer line cleanings more efficiently.
The examples below illustrate what our professionals can (and cannot) do with a sewer camera.
What function do sewer inspection cameras serve?
A sewer line inspection camera resembles a long, robotic snake because it is, in essence, a snake. A tiny camera at the end of the snake provides plumbers with a real-time view of what’s happening in your pipes, and the technology’s flexibility allows the camera to navigate the curves and contours of any pipe or drain.
In essence, they exist to aid plumbers in locating and diagnosing problems that previously could only be guessed at.
The flexible rod containing the camera is inserted into the problematic drain or pipe, and the high-definition video camera at the end transmits images to a small screen used by the plumber during the inspection.
Bright LED lights are attached to the rod, allowing the camera to see even in the darkest places, and we record the entire process so that we can locate the problem later on when performing anything from minor repairs to a complete sewer replacement in Englewood.
Using these cameras, our specialists can identify the following issues:
Problems with pipes – As homes settle, pipes can shift at oblique angles, making them susceptible to cracks, collapse, and misalignment.
Tree roots – Tree roots can typically be removed from a sewer line if they invade it.
However, if the impact is too severe, extensive repairs may be necessary.
A proper diagnosis is crucial and can save or cost thousands of dollars.
Corrosion – Modern PVC pipes are unlikely to experience corrosion, whereas older metal pipes may be susceptible.
If this problem exists in an older home, our cameras will detect it.
Blockage – There are a million different ways a pipe can become clogged, and our cameras can pinpoint the exact location of the obstruction to make its removal simpler.
Leaks – Our cameras can also detect leaks in pipes, making repairs quicker and easier.
If you would like to schedule a sewer line inspection using our high-definition cameras, please contact Alto Sewer Service as soon as possible so we can get you on the schedule. The plumbing industry has advanced significantly in recent years due in large part to innovations such as these cameras, and we are prepared to utilize them to provide Burnsville and the surrounding areas with the best plumbing services available today!
