When you need an in-depth look into your sewer lines and the overall health of your plumbing, a video inspection camera is an ideal application. Sewer inspection video cameras have not only become popular but an invaluable asset among the plumbing tools available to today’s plumber. Before video sewer cameras made their way, plumbers had to make educated guesses to the general location of the plumbing problem. This involved a lot of invasive trial and error digging with a lot of educated guesswork.

With the use of a sophisticated, waterproof, color video camera, our team of highly-trained plumbers can make a thorough examination of the condition of your plumbing. By guiding a flexible, fiber optic rod topped with a high-resolution camera, we can get a real-time view into and around your pipes. The live video feed is viewed on our external monitor and can be saved for further evaluation. Along with a self-leveling camera head, the line fed into the plumbing pipe is also assisted with rugged, high-intensity lights and a flexible radio transmitter that records the depth and physical location of the plumbing problem. This aids in spot repairs rather than whole line repairs by pinpointing exactly where your plumbing problem exists, finding leaks or clearing obstructions quickly which saves you time and money.

The price of a plumbing video camera inspection varies. At Jerry’s Plumbing & Heating, we’re honest plumbers with honest pricing for friendly and professional service.

Why Your Plumbing Might Need Video Inspection

Not all plumbing problems require the use of a video plumbing inspection, but they are extremely helpful in a lot of plumbing situations. Here are some of the most common uses:

  1. Blockages in the sewer line that cannot be unclogged with a plunger, drain cleaner, plumbing snake, or drain auger.
  2. Have you ever lost something valuable down the sink drain or toilet? There’s a possibility it’s still retrievable. Often times, heavy metal objects like rings can get caught within the many loops, twists, and turns that make up your home or office’s plumbing system. A quick video camera inspection can help locate the piece of jewelry and assist in bringing it back. You’ll want to weigh the monetary and sentimental value of the missing piece of jewelry to determine if it’s worth the price of the search and rescue.
  3. Another benefit of a plumbing video inspection is when you’re considering buying an existing home. Whether the home has sewer or septic, it’s always a good idea to ensure you’re not inheriting major plumbing problems down the line. It will help identify root intrusions, leaks, damaged pipes, line collapses, misalignments, and clogs from unexpected items like grease, coffee grounds, cat litter, and oils that have been neglectfully discarded through the plumbing system.

Jerry’s Plumbing Is Ready To Help

A video camera inspection gives you an accurate walk-through of your plumbing system. This revolutionary tool is to plumbers what x-rays are to doctors. It doesn’t provide a smooth shot seen in Hollywood movies because the video scope has to be manually pushed down the line, causing jerky movement, but you will see a high-resolution video of any and all potential plumbing problems. Once the problem is located, we’ll leave the scope in place as a marker and take our locating device, similar to a metal detector, to find its exact position. Finding the exact location of the problem removes the guesswork, saving countless hours and fees. Your plumbing problem will be resolved quickly and effectively.

Plumbing video camera inspection prices range depending on several factors with the average range falling between $100-$800. The size of the home or office’s plumbing system, accessability, the length of pipe it has to travel before locating the plumbing problem, and whether other services are being done simultaneously can affect the overall price. Because we are an honest and reputable plumbing company with solid ethics, we will discuss the estimated costs and fees before we begin work and our standard repair prices will not increase when it comes time to fixing your plumbing issue.
