No one likes a blocked drain, and making sure that clog is gone for certain is a priority among many homeowners. That is why we offer free camera inspections with every drain cleaning in Toronto—while our services are affordable, we do not necessarily want to return because the job was not quite finished the first time. So you know what to expect, and so you can see the benefits, this overview will explain sewer camera inspections and what they can do for you.
How it works
Once the drain is cleared, the plumber will send a video line down your branch lines. (Those are the pipes that lead from your fixtures and into your home’s sewer line.) The main sewer line is the pipe that connects your home to the city sewer system. If it is blocked, then our drain cleaning will be a futile venture, so it is just a good idea to check to be sure.
The video line will show the condition of the pipe and any debris that may be stuck in it. From what we see, we can determine if the clog is truly gone, or if further work is required.
Benefits of the camera inspection
The first benefit is obvious. Just as we stated earlier, we can be sure the drain is clear and there are no issues with your drainage underneath your home. This reduces the likelihood of continuing problems and repeat visits. It also makes emergency plumbing services less likely because it assures that your drainage and sewage system is working well.
Another area where you may require this service is when you remodel your bathroom or kitchen. If you are adding new appliances that may make a larger demand on your plumbing, the camera inspection will check to make sure your pipes, sewer lines and water access will meet the new strain you are putting on it. That gives the camera inspection another preventative function.
The camera inspection can also help with hard-to-diagnose issues. If every attempt made so far with your do-it-yourself efforts has failed, we can take a closer look at the sewer system. This can streamline any repair or cleaning needed, which will save you money on professional plumbing services.
Hire a professional plumber for your camera inspection
Sewer camera inspections are for professionals only. This is not a procedure for the do-it-yourselfer. Camera kits made for the consumer market do not normally travel deeper than a few feet down the drain, and while they may help you find that kitchen clog just past your garbage disposal, they will not reach your sewage system.
Also, consumer kits are not self-focusing, so you are unlikely to see much from them anyway. Video equipment made for specialists contains scopes and locator components that are not a part of consumer systems. They also include powerful lights, high resolution and recording capabilities that make a professional camera inspection more thorough.
