Trained technician scoping a pipe to look for problem areas

When it comes to providing customers with quality plumbing and drain repair and cleaning services, a sewer camera is one of the most valuable pieces of equipment. It allows trained technicians to visually inspect the inside of pipes in real time and identify the cause of plumbing and drainage issues. Arrow Sewer & Drain is trusted by homeowners and businesses throughout north and central New Jersey. Here, we discuss what a sewer scope inspection entails and how it can save time and avoid unnecessary digging on your property.

How a Sewer Scope Works

Performed by trained professionals, sewer camera inspections accurately pinpoint problem areas within a plumbing system. They work by inserting an initial line in the pipe that the sewer camera can be fed through. Because sewer cameras are flexible, they can easily follow the path of the piping, bending and twisting if needed. While the camera is pushed through the piping, the footage is transmitted back to the technician on a monitor. This allows the technician to inspect the condition of the pipe with precision.

Reasons for Sewer Camera Inspection

Sewer scope inspections are generally performed when there is a noticeable problem with the plumbing system in a home or commercial establishment. Signs of plumbing problems can include:

  • Slow drainage
  • Low water pressure
  • Foul odors
  • Leaky faucets
  • Odd noises coming from the pipes

Scoping a plumbing system with a pipe inspection camera can be beneficial for a homeowner or business owner. Some reasons you may opt for a sewer scope include:

A Sewer Scope Can Save Your Property from Unnecessary Digging

The most significant benefit of camera scoping your piping system is locating the exact area where the issue is occurring. Without this service, entire lines would need to be excavated to identify what, and where, the problem lies. This could be extremely problematic to homeowners and business owners, disturbing families or operations. More so, properties would need to be torn up, creating eyesores and disheveled yards.

Potential Savings on Maintenance Repairs

Being able to accurately pinpoint a problem area within the pipe allows for better diagnostics and can potentially help lower repair costs. In many cases, spot repairs may be sufficient, whereas, without camera inspection, the entire system may need to be replaced.

Sewer Cameras Help Detect Causes for Concern

Not only is a camera inspection of your plumbing system great for helping detect current issues, but it can also assist in revealing minor issues that might progress into major causes for concern. By identifying any issues early on, they can be corrected sooner, saving the homeowner or business owner from emergency action later on.
