What Types of Problems Can a Sewer Camera Catch?

Construction & Contractors Blog

You can hire a septic repair service for all types of jobs. In addition to pumping septic tanks and other things, these companies typically offer video sewer inspection services. These companies typically have special cameras that are designed to allow them to inspect septic and sewer lines with ease. These are some of the things that professionals typically look for when using one of these cameras.


Many people deal with issues with their septic or sewer systems because of clogs deep in the sewer lines. It can be hard to determine if these clogs are present or to deal with them without a sewer camera inspection. A professional can use one of their cameras to look for clogs of paper towels, large clumps of toilet paper, or other items that might not dissolve or flow through the system as they are supposed to. If these clogs are present, they can then work to get rid of them once they realize where they are located.


Over time, sewer lines can crack for various reasons. Obviously, these cracks can cause problems. Even if the cracks are minor, they can cause slow leaks of sewage into the ground, which is obviously a bad thing. If the cracks are worse, then you have to worry about even worse leaks. Cracks can sometimes be repaired without the need to completely replace the sewer lines, but they have to be found first. Luckily, this is where a sewer camera inspection can come in handy.


As sewer lines get older, they can begin to rust and corrode. Once this happens, they typically need to be replaced. Of course, this is not something you'll want to do if it isn't necessary, and a camera inspection can help you determine whether or not this is something that needs to be done.

As you can see, professionals who use a sewer camera can look for all sorts of different problems. This makes it easy for them to let you know about the condition of your septic or sewer lines and to perform repairs if they are needed. If you think there might be something wrong with your septic or sewer lines, or if you just want to have an inspection done so that you can make sure that your septic or sewer lines are in good condition, contact a company that works with one of these special cameras so that they can look for the problems above and more.

A Great Build

A lot of contracting work takes time — sometimes weeks, sometimes months, and sometimes years. As such, when contractors finally get finished with a project, they often like to step back and take a good look at what they've created. This is their time to be proud, and they certainly deserve to be. When we step back and take a similar look at the work of contractors, we feel awe. We may not have built the thing, but we understand the work that went into it. After you read some articles on this website, you'll have a good understanding of the work, too.
