What Is Sewer Scope Inspection?

CCTV camera inspection Toronto

A drain line inspection, also called sewer line video inspection, sewer scope inspection, cctv is what the name implies; it is an inspection conducted inside your sewage system. First, a professional plumber attaches a camera to a durable and flexible waterproof device connected to a cable (sometimes called a snake). Then, the plumber directs the camera through the pipe. That enables them to view the condition of the line through the use of a monitor.

Video camera inspection is one of the newest, greatest tools in the plumbing industry. These are waterproof cameras that are specially made for the plumbing industry. Drain line video inspection allows us to check your drain pipes to diagnose existing problems or to prevent them from happening.

  • Our professional technician starts by entering a flexible rod with a high-resolution camera into the sewer line.

  • A technician will be able to diagnose the drain problem and recommend suggested solutions that can range from simple drain snake to replacing the drain
  • We then provide you with both recorded video of the drain and still images

Why Plumbing Camera Inspection is the Most Effective Leak & Blockage Detection

Drain line video inspection

The key to ensuring your pipes and drains are working at their best is early detection of problems and blockages. This is often difficult to do from the outside because many of your pipes are in walls, in cement or underground. If a clog or a leak occurs it can be extremely inconvenient and costly to repair.

Inspection with a plumbing camera can ensure your drains are flowing smoothly and enhance the lifespan and performance of all your pipes by spotting issues early and allowing them to be dealt with before they become large, disruptive problems. Camera inspection takes the guesswork out of figuring out what’s wrong. That means less digging, less mess and less cost for you.

Camera Inspections as a Preventative Measure

The fact is, you just don’t know what’s going on inside your pipes. If your home is brand new, old, recently renovated or otherwise, your pipes are often a mystery. A camera inspection takes the mystery away and puts the knowledge of what’s happening in your hands. With only a small investment of time and money, you’ll be able to save yourself a lot of time, hassle and money in the long run.  You’ll see any trouble spots firsthand and our team of professional plumbers will be able to help you determine the best course of action.
