Before sewer video inspections, the world of plumbing was a lot more invasive and potentially damaging. Entire landscapes were destroyed in efforts to locate a clog. It wasn’t foolproof either which meant that sometimes plumbers dug trenches and destroyed landscapes for no reason. In today’s world, plumbers no longer have to dig trenches for direct access to piping systems. Using sewer video inspections, our plumbers at Valley Plumbing Pros can now get an accurate assessment of your issues and provide a top-quality sewer line repair you can count on.

How Does Sewer Video Inspection Work?
At its core, a sewer video inspection is quite simple. First, the plumber places a waterproof video camera in the piping system via a drain. Then, the rest is history! The camera makes its way through the piping system all while recording the condition of the inside of the pipes.
Afterward, the homeowner and plumber both have a clear visual of the state of the pipes and can more easily locate and fix a pipe leak. There are a few different things a sewer video inspection can and can’t find. A few things it can find are:
- It can locate outdoor pipelines
- Determines inconsistencies in water pressure
- Helps to locate blockages
- Helps to locate leaks
- Can tell between PVC of cast-iron pipes
- Can identify and check connectors within the system
