Video Sewer Line Inspection: Saving You Time And Money

Reading Time: 2 minutes

If you’re a homeowner, you’ll know that plumbing repairs can be time-consuming and one of the most frustrating repairs is a sewer line problem. Clogged sewer lines can cause water backups, unpleasant odors, and property damage. Video sewer line inspections can save you time and money by identifying the issue quickly.

What Is Sewer Line Inspection?

Video sewer line inspection is an ingenious technology that uses a small camera attached to a flexible rod to inspect the inside of your sewer line. The camera is inserted through your drain cleanout, or another access point, and sends real-time footage to a monitor device. With sewer line inspection, your technician can see the condition of the sewer line and identify any issues.

How Video Sewer Line Inspection Saves You Time And Money

There are several money and time-saving benefits of video sewer line inspections.

Accurate Diagnosis

Video inspections help diagnose the problem fast. There’s no guessing on what the problem might be, as the video footage is immediate proof. Issues such as clogs, cracks, or tree root intrusions can all be quickly addressed.


Conventional sewer line repairs can be invasive. These often require the sewer area to be broken open physically. This is destructive to your lawn and any paths you have in your yard. Demolition also produces more noise and can often take longer so you might be paying more for labor.

Targeted Repairs

Video inspection allows technicians to pinpoint the exact location of the problem. Sewer repairs can be targeted to the affected area helping you save money. Just because a plumber recommends a sewer line replacement, doesn’t always mean it’s the best solution.

Better Communication

Another benefit of video inspections is that you can see the video footage of your sewer and you can see the problem with your own eyes. You are not second-guessing the severity of the problem. Video creates a clear line of communication and accountability.

Preventative Maintenance

Video inspection can help to identify potential issues before they become big problems. Addressing these issues early could help you avoid more intensive sewer line repairs down the line. Preventative drain maintenance is always a good idea.

When To Get A Video Sewer Line Inspection?

It’s a good idea to book a sewer line inspection if you’re experiencing any of the following problems:

  • Drain backups or overflows
  • Slower drains
  • Unpleasant odors
  • Gurgling sounds from toilets and drains
  • Visible damage to your sewer line, including cracks or sagging

It’s worth considering a video sewer line inspection when you’re buying a new home, this way you won’t be in for any surprises with underlying sewer line issues.
