Get clear answers and customized solutions through the camera inspections conducted by the seasoned pros from SewerTechs. We provide in-depth inspections using state-of-the-art equipment for contractors, plumbers, excavators, and other commercial clients throughout Washington State and Oregon.


Importance of Camera Inspections

Camera inspections are important because a lot of things can be going on within pipes that you are not aware of. Instead of resorting to exploratory excavation, give our team a call to get answers you can see for yourself. We use existing access points to insert a flexible push camera through the access point (cleanout) into the line that needs evaluating.

As we manipulate the camera through the pipe, the monitor will display real-time images. We record every inspection with footage for reference and review.  SewerTechs takes the time to locate any issues and connecting pipes, along with identifying the depth and surface location, so an accurate estimate can be provided if required.

Main Advantages

For starters, camera inspections are affordable and highly informative. Inspections performed this way also allow us to view and inspect the entire run of the line. Additionally, since the inspection process is generally quick and easy, it can be done as an initial step when making project plans and after the work is done to check the results.

What We Check for During Inspections

With any camera inspection, we look for anything out of the ordinary. Whenever we are preparing for sewer line repairs, we'll also look at the extent of the damage so we can recommend the most appropriate trenchless option. Issues we typically look for include:

  • Tree/shrub root intrusions
  • Pipe joint misalignment
  • Scale and other materials along pipe walls
  • Cracks, fractures, and other types of structural damage
  • Water gathering in a pipe where it's not supposed to be

When a Camera Inspection Is Advisable

For our commercial clients, we recommend having a camera inspection done at the start of any project involving sewer lines. Camera inspections are also necessary if sewer pipes are causing drains to back up, drain slowly, or emit foul odors. We may also recommend inspections in order to:

  • Document problem areas
  • Look for potential issues that should be addressed sooner rather than later
  • Determine if a pipe is stable enough to use hydro jetting
  • Prior to purchase of property to determine costs for negotiating purchase price and project budgets.
