The camera is pushed thru the pipe, to visually inspect and find any potential problems with the line.  When a potential problem is found it can be located for repair.  (See pipe locating)

     When you have a video inspection done of your line you should always get a copy of the video on VHS or DVD and have the location marked, if they offer it.  Some companies do not locate or they do this as an additional charge, some only locate if they are doing the repair. 

     Keep in mind, that in all cases of a repair your contractor must call for utility location or Blue stakes, emergency response time varies.  Depending on the excavation and job to be done, they must also get permits, this does take some additional time, unless they are doing the work illegally.

                    Having a Video Inspection done on your sewer or drain line ensures that the line has not become damaged due to age, wear, settling, and other time related issues.  A video camera allows for a visual inspection of underground sewer lines and other piping, to determine the condition inside the pipe. A flexible rod with a specially designed, high-resolution video camera on its tip is inserted into the pipe for inspection.  Video cameras may be used to identify damage and obstructions that inhibit flow or create occasional or repeated backups. The cameras also verify that obstructions have been removed and that the lines are clean following service. The condition of a line typically cannot be determined without a visual inspection using an in-line camera.

       


Problems that we find during a Video inspection are

Broken - cracked - collapsed pipe - possible damage requiring replacement.
               

Offset pipe -  pipes that over time have become misaligned due to shifting soil, frozen ground, & (in certain areas) Settling over time
              

Find blockage or foreign objects restricting flow or cleaning of the line. 


Corrosion - the pipe has deteriorated and/or broken, causing collapses in the line and restricting flow.


Bellied pipe - a section of the pipe has sunk due to ground or soil conditions, creating a valley that alway hold water & collects paper and waste.


Leaking joints - the seals between pipes have broken, allowing water to escape into the area surrounding the pipe.


Root infiltration - tree or shrub roots have invaded the sewer line, preventing normal cleaning and/or have damaged the line.
    

Off-grade pipe — existing pipes are constructed of substandard material that may have deteriorated or corroded, or not to code.
