Determining the cause of a clogged drain or examining the condition of your plumbing system sometimes requires a more in-depth examination.
By performing a video camera inspection, we are able to see first-hand what is happening inside your pipes so that we can address your issue quickly and efficiently.
What is a Video Inspection?
A sewer camera unit is fitted with a transmitter that sends a signal showing exactly where the blockage is. At ground level, a locating device is used to detect the transmitted signal. The plumber will then mark the spot with paint or a flag, and then they will dig the sewer trench at this location.
