How Does Video Sewer Inspection Work?
- Sewer Line Accessed
The sewer line is accessed through a nearby cleanout. Once the line is visually inspected for standing water or backups that would impede visibility, the camera is inserted into the line.
- Two Direction Inspection
Technicians advance the camera along the line as you watch along, noting any problems so that you can see what they see. The line is inspected both from the cleanout to the main sewer and also back into the home to ensure a proper diagnosis.
- Suspect Areas Located
Areas of potential issue are then located above ground to identify where they are on the property and assess the surrounding area. Using this information, or technicians are able to give a highly accurate diagnosis that you can see for yourself, identify the stage of the problem and give a prognosis. Once this is done, right-fit options are outlined to meet with your time and budgetary needs.
