Video cameras are one of the most valuable tools in the plumbing business. Specially designed waterproof plumbing cameras allow plumbing technicians to conduct a visual inspection of sewer lines and other underground pipes, including pipes under cement and under your home’s foundation. We at Trust Home Inspections offer this service, and you can add it on to a home inspection for half the price a plumber will charge you.
To begin your sewer camera inspection, a professionally trained and skilled technician inserts a rod with a high-resolution video camera on its tip into your sewer lines. These high-tech drain cameras are flexible, allowing them to travel through twists and turns in sewer lines and thoroughly examine pipes and pipe walls in drain lines from 2 inches to 36 inches in diameter.
The video footage is transmitted to the technician in real-time, so the condition inside your sewer and drain lines can be assessed immediately. You’ll be able to view any problems right on a monitor, and footage is saved for future reference. Plumbing cameras are just one part of our sewer line inspection process. This is not a tool that most Home Inspectors carry or have access to.
This inspection will give you more piece of mind when buying a home. Weather there are multiple trees in the yard, the pipes are draining slow, there are older cast iron pipes, clay pipes, orangeberg pipes or plastic pipes, having the knowledge of what is going on with the main drain in the house before you finalize your purchase is our goal. Ask your Home Inspector if they have the ability to do a sewer camera inspection before you hire your next home inspector.
