Drain Camera Inspections in Marion 

Not that long ago, when your sewer line was blocked or you had a significant clog deep in your plumbing system, your plumbing contractor would have to physically hunt for the problem. This usually meant digging up your yard to access buried pipes; only then would they be able to diagnose the problem, whether it was a damaged pipe, a tree root, or other factors. 

At Summers Plumbing Heating & Cooling, however, we offer drain camera inspections in Marion and the surrounding area. With this advanced technology, we can investigate pipes without resorting to invasive—and expensive—digging, saving you money.

We are committed to helping Marion homeowners keep their plumbing systems in top shape, and drain cameras allow our technicians to provide the best plumbing services possible. Let our experienced team of plumbers help your home’s plumbing function properly and efficiently.

Our technicians have the knowledge and the skills to handle every plumbing challenge, so you can rest assured that your plumbing is in good hands.

What is a Drain Camera Inspection?

In our drain camera inspection service, we feed a camera attached to a flexible tube into your plumbing. The tube bends with the curves of your plumbing, allowing us to look at the inside of your pipes. As your technician inspects your pipes, they can detect cracks, holes, breaks, misaligned joints, clogs, scale buildup, and other problems in your plumbing system.

The camera is equipped with a radio transmitter, which allows your technician to record the specific location of the damage, including the depth of the pipe. Once the process is complete and you have a record of the condition of your pipes, your plumbing technician will discuss any repairs that need to be made, from drain replacement to clog removal, as well as an estimate for our services. Once you reach an agreement, our technicians can usually get to work right away, so you don’t have to worry about your plumbing system.

Benefits of a Drain Camera Inspection

Drain camera technology has revolutionized the way plumbers provide drain service, and there are many benefits for homeowners, including:

Sewer Line Repairs

When your home’s sewer line malfunctions, you need help repairing it fast. Because your sewer line is buried underground, though, it can be extremely difficult to find the problem. Several problems could cause problems with your sewer drain, such as:

  • Large clogs from flushing inappropriate items
  • Tree root infiltration
  • Broken or sagging pipes resulting from shifting soil
  • Offset pipe joints

With a drain camera inspection, your plumbing technician can identify the exact type and location of the damage, and formulate a repair plan, which also may not require digging.

Buying a Home

When you purchase a new home, it’s important to make sure you have an inspector look at the property to make sure there’s no hidden damage or other structural deficiency that’s going to cost you money. However, it’s easy to overlook the plumbing system in a new home, and a drain camera inspection can help ensure that no lurking problems are waiting to hit you with an expensive repair bill.

Septic Inspection

If your home has a septic tank, a drain camera can help inspect your septic system. This allows you to track the condition of your tank and determine whether any repairs are needed.

Searching for Lost Items

It’s everyone’s worst nightmare. You’re doing dishes, and suddenly your wedding slips off your finger and goes down the drain. While a plumber may be able to help you look in the trap under the sink, there’s a good chance that it got washed further down your home’s plumbing system.

With a drain camera, your plumber can inspect further into your plumbing system, all the way through your sewer line, searching for your lost item. Once it’s found, the radio transmitter will mark the location, and your technician can help you retrieve the item from the drain.
