Many times when there is a sewer line backup it does not necessarily mean that the pipes are broken or need to be replaced. However, often the only way to be sure of what is going on below the surface is to look inside the pipes to see if they are just clogged or if there is additional damage that needs to be addressed. By using sewer video inspection to view the interior of the pipes, a true assessment of what is causing the problem can be ascertained. We serve:

Diagnosing Sewer Line Problems

In the past, it was often difficult to know why a sewer line was not draining properly. In many cases, it may have been assumed that the pipes needed replacing, even though they were only clogged with debris or tree roots. The use of video camera inspections gives both the sewer line technicians and the property owner a view of what is happening inside the pipes so that money is not unnecessarily wasted on unneeded repairs.

A sewer video inspection starts by attaching a high-definition camera to a fiber optic line that is snaked down through the sewer line. This gives a close up view of the interior of the pipe and can quickly find the problem without wasting time and money doing services that are not needed. The only other way to get this type of diagnosis would be to dig up the sewer line; that would have a high price tag and leave a big mess.

Video Inspections and Related Services

A pipe camera inspection can be a standalone service if all you need is a report of the current condition of your sewer lines. This can also be beneficial if you're contacting us for routine sewer or drain maintenance. Video inspections can also be coupled with the following services we provide:

  • Sewer Repair: If camera inspection results show structural damage is present, we'll determine what approach to sewer repair is right for the situation. We use repair techniques that fully solve the problem and provide long-lasting results.
  • Sewer Pipe Relining: One of the trenchless methods we use is relining. If video inspection results show the sewer line is still stable, relining is a cost-effective way to fix the damaged pipe from the inside.
  • Sewer Hydro Jetting: In some cases, a vide inspection indicates what's needed is a thorough cleaning. We do this by harnessing the power of water with hydro jetting. Jetting may also be done to prepare sewer lines for trenchless repair.
  • Trenchless Sewer Repair: In addition to pipe lining or relining, our trenchless repair options include pipe bursting. We may perform repairs this way if the damage to the sewer line is severe. Trenchless repair is efficient and your grass-covered or landscaped areas won't be disturbed, either.

Benefits Of Video Camera Inspections

There are many benefits to having a video camera inspection done on sewer lines. As well as a useful diagnostic tool, they can also be used for preventive measures. Many older homes and buildings in the Seattle area have sewer pipes that have been in place for several decades. Having an inspection to determine the state of corrosion or blockages can help property owners address sewer issues preventively instead of reactively. Property owners that can benefit from sewer video inspections include:

  • New homeowners. Knowing the state of the sewer lines in a new home, or in a potential new home, can save money and problems down the line.
  • Drainage issues. If there have been draining problems or back ups, having a video inspection can identify the true cause.
  • Old sewer lines. Property owners that have sewer lines that have not been replaced in many years can have a preventive inspection done to avoid future issues.
  • Save money. Many times sewer pipes are clogged from debris or tree roots and just need a good cleaning, like a hydro-jetting service. A video inspection can eliminate costly unneeded repairs by showing the extent of the problem.

Not only does Budget Sewer provide video pipe inspection services to our customers in the Seattle area, we even provide access to the videos online for their convenience. We want to provide a clear look at exactly what is going on in your sewer pipes, both for our technicians and for you.

Sewer Camera Inspection FAQs

Sewer camera inspection in Seattle, WA, or other areas we serve can be done fairly quickly, usually in about half an hour or less. It may take longer if multiple sewer and drain lines are involved.

Home inspectors typically assess things they can clearly see, which doesn't include deeper areas of sewer lines. Having an inspection done when buying a home or moving into one gives you documentation of the condition of your sewer system.

It's best to call us about a sewer or drain inspection if you're noticing signs of a problem. For preventative purposes, we recommend inspections every 1 to 2 years.

This is a good idea since older sewer lines are more susceptible to damage from corrosion and underground tree roots.

Pay attention to your drains. If you're noticing frequent clogs or backups or foul odors, give us a call to schedule an inspection.
