Plumbing Camera Inspection FAQs

What is a Plumbing Camera Inspection?

A plumbing camera inspection is an inspection of your drains or sewers using a specially designed camera to inspect your pipes from the inside. The process allows a plumber to learn the cause and location of your plumbing problems when they’re hidden behind walls or buried underground without causing unnecessary damage, such as digging up your lawn. It’s a cost-effective solution that can save homeowners time, money, and frustration.

What’s the Plumbing Camera Inspection Process?

When a plumbing camera inspection is required for your drains or sewers, a licensed John The Plumber technician will prepare the specially designed plumbing camera. The camera will then be inserted into your drain or sewer line, connected to a long flexible cable. Then the camera will send a live video feed to a TV monitor, showing the location and cause of your plumbing issue. The camera is equipped with a transmitter allowing the plumber to precisely locate the problem. The plumber will use the information to make a decision and solve your problems.

What kind of equipment is used?

Due to the nature of plumbing, drain and sewer inspection, cameras must be waterproof, flexible, and durable. These waterproof cameras are connected to a spooled cable so that the camera can be inserted deep into your home plumbing system. The end of the cable is connected to a display screen so that a plumber can see an HD live feed of your plumbing system to locate the cause of your plumbing issue.

Why do a plumbing video inspection?

Some drain and sewer issues are hidden out of sight. Using a plumbing inspection camera, a licensed plumber can learn the cause and location of your plumbing issue without having to cause unnecessary damage to your home or property. Plumbing video inspections eliminate the need to guess what or where the problem is while saving homeowners time and money.
