When Do You Need Sewer Camera Inspection Services?

Sewer line camera inspection services are recommended if you are experiencing frequent backups, but they can also be performed proactively to avoid damage and emergencies. 

Don’t become dependent on chemical drain cleaners that can destroy your pipes. The better option is to find out what is causing the blockage and tackle the cleanout, otherwise you could be looking at a more expensive repair downt the road. 

Reasons to consider an inspection:


Sewer materials do not last forever, and as homes age, so do the drain lines. Sewer systems can deteriorate over time opening up spaces allowing for roots to enter, or causing missing sections or breaks. Common sewer pipe materials, such as cast iron and clay, can last approximately 50 years, so older properties may experience more sewer backups if the pipe is not repaired or replaced.  

Frequent Backups

Normal sewer and drain backups happen due to natural use, but frequent occurrences indicate larger issues. Roots, aging lines, objects in the line and collapsed sections are common issues found in sewer lines. A sewer camera inspection will provide an in-depth view of the condition and cause allowing our team to make the appropriate repair.  

Large Trees

Trees and landscaping enhance the beauty of properties but are destructive to sewer pipes. Seeking moisture and nutrients inside of drain lines, roots can enter through small seams or cracks and continue to grow. As they grow inside of the line, they can cause breaks and eventually lead to fully blocked sewer drains. Tree roots not only block sewers, but can affect the rest of the drains inside of the home, and can even grow up through the toilet drain. For properties with large trees, even close by, we recommend performing an annual sewer camera inspection to ensure roots are not causing harm to your sewer lines.  

New Home & Investment Property Purchases

Performing an in-depth inspection in the sewer line prior to purchasing your new home or investment property can save time and money on surprise repairs. New home inspections only assess visible plumbing systems, so often there may be problems lying in wait. With a camera inspection, you can identify potential issues before making any decisions or affecting the cost of the sale.   

Area Drains

Area drains are drains on the property to handle stormwater runoffs and irrigation. However, they can become clogged due to rocks, dirt, debris and other ground elements. When they are blocked, large amounts of water, such as storm rains, can cause backups affecting your property. A sewer camera inspection can ensure the line is clear and able to handle the flow of rains and irrigation services.
