Drain Camera Inspections

Drain Camera Inspection Services in Peru, IN

It used to be that when your sewage lines were clogged, or there was a blockage, your plumber would have to visually inspect the entire length of the pipes to determine where the problem was located. In most cases, that would include digging below the ground’s surface to reach the pipes. There was no way of knowing what the culprit could be without physically laying eyes on the entire pipe network.

Summers Plumbing Heating and Cooling offers a better option. In Peru, we are equipped to use drain cameras to inspect the drains and surrounding areas. Because of this unique technology, Summers can quickly investigate the pipes without disturbing the landscaping unnecessarily. This also means that you won’t be paying the additional digging fee as well.

What Is Drain Camera Inspection?

A drain camera inspection is a specialty service. To conduct the inspection, we attach a small camera to a tube inserted into your plumbing system. The tube can bend and curve as the pipes allow us to take a peek inside the pipes across the length. As the camera moves through the pipes, the technician can visually detect any cracks, breaks, misaligned joints, holes, clogs, buildup, or other problems. 

The camera has a radio transmitter attached, so its precise location can be recorded. This provides the homeowner with a complete record of the condition of the pipes. At that point, the homeowner and technician can discuss any repairs required and provide an estimate for the service. Our technicians are equipped to get started immediately upon reaching an agreement on how to remedy the problem.

Benefits of Using a Drain Camera

Drain camera technology has made a significant impact on the plumbing industry. There are many benefits that the homeowner can enjoy when consulting with a company that uses this technology:

Sewer Line Repairs

When there is a malfunction with your sewer line, time is of the essence. But as most sewer lines are buried in the home’s backyard, locating the exact problem can create a lot of damage when using the traditional method of guessing and digging. There are many potential culprits such as:

  • Clogs caused by flushing items not appropriate for sewer lines
  • Roots from nearby trees invading and infiltrating pipes
  • Broken pipes as a result of shifting soil
  • Offset pipe joints

Using a drain camera can pinpoint the exact location of the problem identify the cause and help the technician develop a specific repair plan to dig up the existing yard to the most minor extent possible.

Buying A Home

A home inspection is a standard procedure involved in the purchase of a new home. Its purpose is to give the buyer a complete assessment of the home’s status before fully committing to the purchase. However, plumbing lines are often overlooked and assumed to be without deficit unless the problem has arrived at the point of being noticeable. If there are problems that are not yet grown to the point of causing a backup, they’ll likely go unreported. A drain camera inspection can put a homebuyer at ease in knowing the sewer lines’ complete status.

Septic Inspection

The drain camera can also be used to offer a closer, inside look at the septic system. Again, this service will allow you to pinpoint and identify any potential problems with the least amount of disturbance to the landscaping.

Searching For Lost Items

Whether it’s a valuable piece of jewelry that fell from the sink down the drain or something that a toddler thought would be fun to flush, it’s not unheard of to fret over an item that has likely found its way into the sewer lines. Once again, a drain camera can go where you don’t want to go. It can confirm the location and assist a technician in recovering the item.
