Monitor showing the interior of a sewer line

Determining exactly what is happening in a sewer system is a complicated prospect. Since multiple pipes are generally located in a home’s foundation, it is almost impossible to determine what state the sewer is in or if there are any burgeoning issues.

Fortunately, you can rely on Budget Sewer for accurate sewer camera inspection services in Seattle, WA. We can assist by providing comprehensive and precise information concerning your sewer system.

What is a Sewer Camera Inspection?

A sewer video inspection is done by utilizing a tiny waterproof video camera on the edge of a flexible cable. The video camera is then put inside the sewage system and guided through the pipes to make a thorough visual inspection. The sewer cameras give full visual access to pipes, be they concrete-encased pipes, underground pipes, pipes found behind walls, or below the foundation of a house.

When Do You Need a Sewer Camera Inspection?

A video pipe inspection provides a simple, easy, and effective way of finding out the sewer system’s health and catching issues before they become costly affairs.

  • Old Houses

Many houses older than twenty years are likely to have issues with their sewer system, and this is because the piping of the sewage may still be joined to a cesspool as the house was constructed before the city sewer line was installed. A pipe camera inspection is also recommended if a house was built during the late 40s and 50s, as the sewer lines consisted of pressed wood and tar paper, known to fail in as little as ten years.

  • Back up issues of the sewer

Sewer backups are legitimate plumbing emergencies and the best thing to do is to have a thorough drain inspection to solve the underlying cause.

If the sewer is backing up, it may have issues such as:

  • Clogged drainage
  • Foul smell close to the drain
  • Toilet not flushing
  • Bubbles when flushing the toilet
