What is a Drain Camera?
A drain camera can be described as a video lens on the end of a strong cable. It is just like an eyeball on the end of the stick. It is generally sent down any drain that is 2” in diameter or more, although it can work on drains about 1.5” in diameter if necessary.
The cameras are great tools but have specific limitations. If the pipe is full of dirt and debris, the camera is unable to detect anything. Clean water does not cause any problem so your plumber may advise you not to run any water before the inspection in order to give the debris in the water time to settle.
DRAIN CAMERA FUNCTIONS
Drain Camera Inspection functions
A camera is used to diagnose the issues very easily and we will open the closet drain to the blockage, and put a snake down the drain to make sure that the camera can go through easily.
Here are some common issues:
Balance in the joints between pipes.
The sewer line is nothing else but a section of pipe joined together. With the passage of time, the ground outside your home can shift and settle from its actual position and incline the pipes in different directions, which can cause breaks in the joints. This chaotic situation ultimately leads to a ridge that traps debris and leads to a clog.
Disruption of pipes because of tree roots.
If there are a serious damage and break in the pipe, water will leak out and will flow towards thirsty tree roots. The water is nutrient-rich, and that is really beneficial for plants. The roots will gather the moisture from the leaking pipe, and as a result, invade the cracked pipe itself, and build up inside the pipe over time.
Section of Pipes which are crushed and bent
The inadequate support under the pipe is the main reason behind this situation. It happens often because of the large rocks.
Deterioration on the inner surface of the pipe.
There are many old homes which are built decades ago and have cast iron sewer lines. With the passage of time, they get corroded and rusted and the metal develops pits and can trap debris.
After effects of Camera Inspection
There are many potential outcomes and the action we usually suggest depends on the severity of the problem and whether it will happen again after the clog is eliminated.
