One of the biggest problems with broken sewer lines and leaking pipes is pinpointing the exact location of the leak or break. For every minute it takes to locate the leak, water damage could be happening that will inevitably cost you money. One of the great plumbing innovations in recent memory is the introduction of cameras to travel into pipes and sewer lines to take all of the guesswork out of the equation.
Sewer Line Video Camera Inspection Explained
Sewer line video inspection uses waterproof cameras that are capable of sending real-time video of the interior of the sewer line to a monitor so plumbers can see exactly what is happening. The camera is attached to a rod that is flexible enough to navigate any twists and turns in the pipe. Once the origin of the leak has been identified, work can begin to get it repaired.
Reasons for Using Camera Line Inspection
Camera line inspection is a useful service, not only for its ability to expedite the repair process, but because it helps minimize the amount of disruption and digging it takes to make the necessary repairs. It also helps determine the correct course of action to address the problem and get it fixed. Identifying leaks with camera line inspection would require one type of solution, while a clog would require a different solution.

Location and Prevention
Locating the exact spot that future problems may occur is another great use for camera line inspection. Even if the pipe is still intact, if the plumber sees weakened areas, he may decide to take preventative measures, rather than wait until there’s a real problem down the road.
Sometimes, it’s possible to locate lost items that have disappeared into the pipe. This doesn’t happen very often, but items like jewelry have been found in drains and sewer lines when the owner thought they’d never be seen again. The key is to find a reputable service provider and let them get to work.
