Video inspection for sewers, drains and mainlines can be a useful tool in plumbing. It is not enough to know that you have a leak. Locating it and assessing the depth of the problem there is the main issue.

Sewer inspection cameras are made of specialized fiber optic that allows you to see within the depths of your plumbing lines and assess the condition. A flexible rod with a high-resolution color video camera on its tip is inserted into the pipe for inspection. Video images are transmitted to the camera operator and can be saved onto a videotape for a permanent record. Radio transmitters on the camera record the depth and physical location from the surface so that defects and obstructions can be corrected cost effectively.

Benefits of Video Camera Inspections (1)

Benefits of Video Camera Inspections

Your property’s plumbing health is of paramount importance. With so many potential issues, it is better to have a mechanism for assessing accurately the condition of your pipes so the proper fixes can be made accordingly. 

  • Identify Breaks And Damages: It helps identify leaks and other pipe damages so that water does not keep leaking into your house or the foundation.
  • Determine Health Of Pipes: Keeping up with plumbing health and knowing when to replace pipes is crucial in keeping your property in shape.
  • Locate Blockages: Once determined that there is a blockage, finding out where it is in a maze of pipes is a hassle which is where video inspection comes in.
  • Know What’s Causing The Blockage: Be it hair, debris, or tree root infestation, know exactly what it causing the problem so you can fix it promptly.

How It Works

Here’s how the entire process of video inspection goes, to determine where the problem is, provide you a report and suggest a potential list of fixes.

k

Insertion of the Camera

The flexible rod with camera attached at the end is inserted into the pipes using an inlet. It is guided through the pipes towards the suspected area.

Real-Time Video Feedback

The plumbing expert keeps an eye on the video footage to see everything, spot potential leaks, damage to pipes, and locate the leak or blockage.

Analysis by Certified Technicians

The video footage and the leak or damage is assessed, potential fixes are determined and a detailed report is provided to help you proceed.

Common Problems With Plumbing

There are a ton of problems that can happen with your plumbing. With so many of such issues and a different fix for each one, it is important to determine which one you are facing in order to get the best value:

  • Root Intrusions: Tree root overgrowth can penetrate pipes and cause leakages or blockages allowing water to seep into your foundation.
  • Pipe Corrosions and Cracks: Over time, pipes can get damaged, or with usual wear and tear, lose the strength and flexibility they once had. This is when cracks appear.
  • Blockages and Build-ups: Dust, debris, hair and other obstructions can build up over time causing a complete or partial clog.

6 months ago they came out and took great care of me, 6 months later another problem, set up a on line booking, last trip out they charged me $199 for unclogging a drain, this time they were running a $49 special, they called me 20 minutes out and said on there way, i explained my problem and he told me that special doesn’t apply to your citation and because we have been out before we are gone have to charge you more! MORE for being a returning customer! For being a returning customer they now wanted to charge me $299 for the exact same job they did before! So I told him I will cancel if you don’t give me the same price as last time, he said I will call my supervisor and ask him and get back to you, well 3 hours later no call back! How’s that for customer service! And trying to take advantage of the customer who was being loyal and coming back for the service that was given before! I am a Manager of a retail business, I pride myself on loyalty of my clients and customer service, when I say I am gonna do something I do it! This is the poorest most disrespectful things you can do to your customers, reviews are now for the public to see, and how bad you take care of your customers and customers who come back to give you business, just shows what loyalty means to them, all about the mighty DOLLAR, and taking advantage of you! Go somewhere else where they will treat you as a customer and not a notch in there belt!

After contacting an elite plumber, they promptly arrived but the plumber declined to use a main line snake on my mainline drain. Instead, they used a 1/2 inch cable and stated that the line could not be unclogged from the cleanout. The plumber also refused to attach a head to the drain cable and attempted to upsell me on hydrojetting. When the supervisor arrived, they confirmed that hydrojetting was the only solution as they were unable to clear the blockage using other methods. So I said no the hydrojet and told them to call it a day. I then contacted a different plumber who had the appropriate mainline cable for his plumbing snake. He utilized a retriever head to swiftly clear the clog in the drain. It is unclear whether they lack knowledge or are simply attempting to maximize profits by exploiting homeowners. Be aware that they may not prioritize your best interests.

After a dishwasher installation snafu, Martin from Elite responded and step by step explained the why and the what needed to be done to ensure my plumbing problem was fixed. He was knowledgeable, professional, and made me feel like he would help me as he would a family member. I really appreciated their follow-up and guarantee of their finished product/work. Thank you, Martin and Elite...

Service Rep Freddy was great no issues there, cost was a bit steep but it's a job I'm not doing and know nothing about i wouldn't say I was overcharged I just didn't think it was going to be that expensive. Again the actual representative that did the job was great, great attitude it was actually late by the time he left but no issues since so job was done.

My past experiences with other plumbing companies have not been great. The work has been substandard and/or the cost has been extremely inflated. Elite Rooter gave me timely and efficient service at an extremely fair price. They started work immediately, as soon as the problem was diagnosed and they worked every day including Saturday until the work was finished. They were very thorough and very careful not to cause any damage or leave any mess. Martin and Fernando are a great team! They are trustworthy!

We had a complete blockage in our drain pipe. Chris and his team came to assess the problem. They were quickly able to determine the root cause and provided a couple of solutions and offered advice. They did an amazing job in replacing our main drain pipe that was cracked due to tree root intrusion. Everything was done promptly and with a permit. The team is very knowledgeable. Highly recommended if you want the job to be done right and have peace of mind.

Elite Rooter offers the best toilet unclogging service I've ever had. I called them to make an appointment and asked them to do the service as soon as possible. Then they sent Raymund to me in just 20 minutes. Raymund was a very nice person. He unclogged my toilet in just 5 minutes. Since that was not a very big problem, he told me that today's service is free! Wow, what a big surprise! I would definitely recommend their service to everyone!

I made a last-minute call to Elite rooter when another plumber I was going to have fixed our shower drain quoted a very high price. Elite Rooter had a coupon on their website and was able to come out to the house within the hour. Leo was the technician and he knows his craft! He informed me I could not use the coupon due to the complexity of the clog and that was fine as we live in an old house and things work differently in these types of homes. He managed to clear the clog and now our shower drains which make me very happy. I would definitely hire Elite Rooter again for our plumbing needs.

They were professional and pleasant while we did business with them. They wore masks from the moment they came to the door until the minute they left. They also put on new shoe covers at the front door each time they entered to keep the inside of our house clean and germ-free. Raymund was our senior technician and did a great job. They were on time and efficient, but detail oriented, as well. We highly recommend using them if you're in the Camarillo area and have plumbing needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a video camera inspection of drains and mainlines?

To assess the condition of drains and mainlines a non-invasive method is used which includes using a small video camera attached to a flexible rod to do a complete inspection of mainlines or drains.
