No, this is not a movie set…it is the action taken to find out what is going on with your sewage system. Not quite as romantic is it? What is a video sewer inspection? To inspect the pipes and find possible problems, a special sewer video camera head connected to a flexible cable is inserted into the main sewer line cleanout, and snaked through the pipes.
While it is an important tool in a leak location test, a sewer camera by itself cannot be used to determine if you have a leak. Since the camera is inside the pipe, it cannot see the outside of the pipe which simply means it can’t see if something is leaking OUT of the pipe. It can only show what is going on INSIDE the pipe.
For practical evidence of this we invite you to visit www.plumbersnohomish.com. Here, you can view a sewer cam video. It isn’t pretty, but it should educate you on what may be needed under your Seattle area home. If and when you need us, we are a phone call away. Call Shawn at (425) 367-4744 before things get worse.
