You an avoid digging up your yard with a sewer video inspection that allows you to pinpoint the exact location of your issue. The team at Spindletop Plumbing provides these video sewer inspections for homes and businesses in Nederland, TX and surrounding areas. These inspections do more than save you time and money, they save your property from unsightly holes being dug all around your home or business.

What Is a Sewer Video Inspection?

This is a process where you call in a plumbing company or a specialist to run a video line through your waste pipes.

The video might extend down your branch lines (the pipes that lead from bathtubs and faucets to the house’s sewer line) or down the house’s sewer line (the larger pipe that leads from the house to the municipal sewer line on the street). At the end of the line is a camera that lets you see the line in close-up and real-time detail.

Is It Necessary?

While this would not be a frequent occurrence, you might need a video inspection if you plan to add a bathroom or remodel your kitchen or a bathroom. Due to the greater quantities of wastewater involved, you may want to inspect your sewer line to make sure that it can handle the increased needs.

Typically, though, most homeowners call in a sewer line video inspection only if there is a problem, such as a blockage that cannot be fixed by plunging, liquid drain cleaners, or sewer or drain augering.

What a Sewer Video Inspection Can Show You

If you are doing an entire sewer line video inspection, you will see a “walk-through,” leading from the trap, down through the sewer line, and up to any obstructions.

If the camera can push through the blockage, it may continue through to the municipal line.

Do not expect a Hollywood movie. While the resolution is high, the picture will be jerky because the scope has to be manually pushed down the line.

How Can You Use the Results?

The camera unit has a transmitter. The video technician/plumber will stop the camera at the blockage point. Then the worker will go up to ground level and wave a locating device until the device picks up the transmission signal. This allows the worker to spray a paint spot at the exact point of blockage. You will dig the sewer trench here.
