San Francisco Sewer Camera Inspection

Have you ever had a plumbing issue in your Bay Area home? The smells and the sounds can be quite overwhelming. Furthermore, you may not have access to your bathroom, sinks, etc. because using them can cause more problems - a frustrating issue to be sure. But, what can you do?

Plumbing issues can be a hassle - especially if you are unable to find the root of the problem. Fortunately, the San Francisco plumbers at Mr. Rooter Plumbing can help you diagnose and repair the issue through the use of video inspection technology.

What is a plumbing video inspection?

During this process, a specialized camera is lowered into either your main sewer line (a large pipeline that runs from your home to the municipal sewer line) or into your branch lines, which goes from your bathtub and faucets to the main sewer line of your home. This camera gives you the ability to visually inspect the health of your pipes and identify any issues as well as their source.

What can be seen on a plumbing video inspection?

A plumbing video inspection will show you everything that's in your pipes, for a distance of approximately 330 feet. This is long enough to show you the area that goes from your branch lines to the municipal sewer line. Although the video may be a little murky, it's still clear enough to show you what the inside of the piping look so that you can visually identify any blockages and/or broken or damaged sections of your pipeline.

Can a homeowner perform a video inspection by themselves?

Although it is possible for you to perform a video inspection of your sewer line, it is not recommended because any tools you may have access to (unless they are commercial grade) will not be sufficient. This is a task best suited for professionals because not only will it save you money and hassle, these experts have the experience and the expensive and sensitive equipment that's needed to do the job right.
