A Plumbing Camera Can Go Deep into Pipes To Find Clogs and Cracks

If you are noticing that you are having plumbing issues but don’t want your entire piping system taken apart in order to find the problem, consider getting a sewer camera inspection service performed. A sewer inspection camera is a noninvasive thin camera that goes deep inside your pipes to locate and identify even the smallest of cracks. These plumbing cameras are more accurate than the human eye, and don’t require any construction as your plumbing stays intact.

A plumbing camera is less than half the cost of a regular plumbing inspection, since the price gets increased so much due to the manual labor and installation and repairs that have to take place with removing the pipes to inspect. A sewer inspection camera can identify if you have a leak in your water or sewer lines, causing backflow. If that is the case, you can remove all the contaminants from your water with Pelican Ozone Water Filtration.

What Can a Sewer Inspection Camera Find?

A plumbing camera can see even through thick sewage to find:

  • Clogs, and can identify what the clog is, whether it be buildup of grime or non flushable debris
  • Cracks and leaks in the sides of pipes
  • Rust and corrosion on pipes
  • Invading tree roots seen in underground sewage and water lines
  • Loose piping that needs to be repaired or replaced
