Why Choose Sewer Camera Inspections?

It’s easy…money! It’s far less invasive to conduct a visual plumbing inspection of an area prior to opening walls, floors, or digging up your property. Imagine if doctors didn’t have x-ray machines! There would be many more unnecessary surgeries performed.

What Will the Plumber Look for During a Sewer Inspection?

A sewer inspection lets the certified plumber in Boise, ID, and surrounding areas an opportunity to find problems that are causing issues today and see areas of concern that may pose problems down the road.

Issues such as:

  • Drain pipe blockages
  • Crushed pipes
  • Misaligned joints
  • Serious leaks
  • Tree root infiltration (Boise is the City of Trees…could also be called the City of Roots)

Some of the common reasons why serious clogs occur that require a sewer video inspection:

  • Grease, hair, paper or even organic matter stuck in the line
  • Foreign objects that should have never been there in the first place (kids toys, etc)
  • Shifting soil causing pipes to crack or become misaligned over time
  • Pipes that have been crushed due to excessive loads


Q: How Does a Camera Inspection Work?

A: A sewer or drain inspection is non-intrusive since it's done through an existing opening called a cleanout. The lighted, high-resolution camera is attached to a flexible rod that allows one of our technicians to ease it through the pipe, even through turns and other configurations. The real-time images are then displayed on a monitor and recorded for review and reference.

Q: How Long Does An Inspection Take?

A: The duration of a sewer video inspection will depend on several factors, such as the length and location of the pipe and how many sewer lines need to be viewed. In general, it usually takes about an hour or less to complete a standard inspection.

Q: What Happens Next?

A: A pipe camera inspection may be the first and last step taken if nothing is found. This can be the case, for instance, if you're scheduling a routine inspection so the condition of your sewer line can be documented. Otherwise, the next step is usually to recommend an appropriate solution for any issues discovered. This could mean a thorough cleaning or traditional or trenchless repairs.

In addition, you'll be able to review the results of the sewer camera inspection in Boise, ID, or nearby areas for yourself. This will give you an opportunity to ask one of our local five-star service professionals any questions you may have about what was found.
