How it works

Sewer or drain repairs are one of the most stressful tasks for a homeowner. It can be intrusive, expensive, time-consuming, and most of all, you do not have full control over the repairs. When it comes to expenses, you can expect to not only pay for the repair but other costs associated with it too, including the wall or floor digging and more.

Trenching and digging used to be the only option for sewer repair. Now, professional technicians use plumbing inspection cameras because of modern technology introduced within the last two decades. This tool is currently the best option for fixing any plumbing problems without digging.

Drain Camera Inspection FAQs

Here's some tips & frequently asked questions on how to find the right drain camera inspection for your job

1. What is a CCTV pipe inspection?

A Closed-Circuit Television Video or CCTV pipe inspection is the method of seeing through pipes, drains or sewer lines using a camera. It allows plumbers to see the cause of sewer problems without resorting to more invasive approaches such as removing or digging through walls or flooring to access the plumbing. This is a more cost-effective method in finding the position of blockages in the sewer or the drain. Below are some of the drain problems that will be easily located by drainage camera inspections:

  • Earthquake damage
  • Root intrusion
  • Corrosion
  • Pipe cracking
  • Offset joint pipes
  • Accidental puncturing
  • Deterioration over time
  • Poor installation or previous repair efforts
  • Severe blockage
 

2. How to use a drain inspection camera?

The process begins when a technician inserts a specialised pipe inspection camera down your pipes or drain. The inspection camera is fibre optic and is about the size of a smartphone camera. It is then attached to a long and flexible metal cable. The cable will be fed into the drain camera-first. The technician will control the camera remotely through the small motors installed in the cables. As the camera is being pushed further into the drain, its cable will also unspool from a long coil. The camera also has powerful lights that will light up the drain. The lights are needed so technicians can easily see what's inside the pipe in the portable closed-circuit display connected to the camera via the cable. This allows the technician to inspect everything in the drain in real-time.

 

3. What can I expect from a plumbing inspection?

Self-inspecting your own plumbing problems is not enough. Sometimes you may notice more serious problems than it seems, and trying to fix them may cost you more than hiring a professional for an inspection.

A professional plumber has all the necessary tools and experience to find hidden plumbing problems in your home. They also know exactly what to look for upon a simple self-inspection.

The list below is what a thorough plumbing inspection will cover:

  • The water heater
  • Interior and exterior drainage systems
  • The water supply
  • Toilets and sewerage
  • Venting systems
  • Plumbing fixtures

If there is any problem, the plumbers will inform you and estimate the cost of repair or replacement.

 

4. How much does a drain camera inspection cost?

The average cost for a drain camera inspection is between $100 to $1,000. It varies because each plumbing inspection will be different, and it will also depend on the company offering the service. For instance, the more thorough the inspection, the higher the pay within the mentioned cost range. Another factor that affects the cost is the level of follow-up the technicians or plumbers included with the inspection.
