Why Use Drain Sewer Video Inspection?

Are you suspecting you have an issue with your drain line? But you aren’t sure what the problem is. Before you schedule or call a plumber for repairs, book a drain line inspection. A drain sewer inspection with a video camera has become one of the most valuable tools in a Toronto plumber’s kit. This non-invasive method can identify any issues in your line that need to be fixed.

Specially made waterproof cameras allow for a visual inspection of drains, sewer lines and other pipes in places that are not otherwise hard to access. The process is often termed as drain sewer video inspections and is used extensively by Everest Drain and Plumbing.  A professionally trained and skilled Toronto plumber or technician can inspect a drain and pinpoint any problems that may exist in just minutes and without digging up your gardens or demolition of your driveway.

The process starts with the Toronto plumber inserting a flexible rod with a high-resolution video camera on its tip into pipes allowing the camera to travel. The camera travels through the pipe (even around corners) to see the pipe in its entirety. Real-time video image transmission allows the Toronto plumber to determine the condition of the pipe and diagnose any existing or potential problems.

Why do we recommend every homeowner to use this service?

If you are experiencing frequent sewer backups in your home and it may seem difficult to locate where the backup is or what is causing your clogged drains. The video inspection will be beneficial to show the exact problem in your sewer pipe. Some reasons to schedule a video inspection can include

  • Elimination of any guesswork
    The transmitters in the camera can record the depth and physical location from the surface of any defect or obstructions. This means that a Toronto plumber can accurately diagnose and solve any drain line concerns. There is no guesswork, so your problems will be resolved quickly and cost-effectively. What this means in its entirety is that if they do need to dig, they only need to dig up the area where the problem exists, and not the entire yard which saves you a lot of time and money.
  • Accurate identification of problems
    A drain sewer video inspection will identify all types of problems, including root intrusion and misaligned, broken, punctured, off-grade, or corroded pipes. The procedure also identifies grease build up, leaks, and clogs. After doing repair work, the plumber may need to do the inspection repeatedly to verify that the line has been cleaned or repaired. So if you are having drain problems or need to be sure that you don’t have one, using drain sewer video inspections from Everest Drain and Plumbing is the best idea.

  • Save you time and expensive repair
    A drain video inspection can save you hundreds of dollars in the long run. It makes it easy to identify the exact problems without tearing up your home or yard. And by spotting the exact problem, you can save time and prevent an expensive fix down the road and the inconvenience of a sewage backup in your house.
  • Other uses
    This procedure can also be used to locate lost valuables and jewelry items. If you lose a ring or earrings on the sink or drain, don’t be sad. Drain Sewer Video Inspection can easily find such items for you.
