What is a Sewer Pipe Camera Inspection?

A sewer pipe camera inspection lets you see the inside of your entire sewer line. It shows you if there are any breaks, holes, or other sorts of damage to your line, and it also lets you know if there are any major clogs or blockages that you might want to have taken care of.

If you’d like to have this done, give us a call at Wilson Services. We’ll send out an expert Sussex County plumber, who will send a camera attached to a flexible metal line through your sewer. The camera will record what it sees, and you will get a copy of this recording to keep. We’ll watch the camera as it moves and let you know if we see any problems.

When Do I Need a Sewer Pipe Camera Inspection?

Many people choose to have a septic inspection before they buy or sell a home. Sewer problems can take a lot of time and money to fix, so it’s better to know what you’re getting into before you buy a home. Problems in the sewer line might make you reconsider your offer, or you may ask the current owners to fix them before you buy. 

Other people choose to have a sewer pipe camera inspection when they suspect there are issues with their sewer line in a home they already own. Sending a camera through the line is an easy way to see what the problem is, and gives us information we need to to help you determine how to fix the problem. The following problems can indicate the need for sewer line repair or replacement. If you’re having them, call us for a sewer line inspection in Sussex County today.

  • A persistent sewer odor in your home
  • Slow drains across your whole house
  • Patches of grass or vegetation that are extra green and lush
  • Dents in your lawn or under pavers
  • Cracks in your foundation
  • Unexplained mold growth

While each of these issues can have other explanations, the easiest way to determine if the problem is in your sewer is to inspect that line with a camera. This lets you see, for sure, what is going on down there.
