About Our Traverse City Sewer Camera Inspection Service

The average home has multiple drains and one main sewer line that leads to the sewer lateral. When you turn on the tap or flush the toilet, the wastewater that disappears down the drain is whooshed away, traveling steadily downwards at a slope until it meets up with the municipal sewer. That's how it's supposed to work, anyway. If you have a clog, crack, collapsed pipe or tree root located somewhere down your drain line, the water may be slow to travel, not move at all, or worse yet, come back up out of your pipes.

Where does a Traverse City sewer camera inspection come in? Those who experience issues with the normal operation of their sewer line will want to have it inspected. Because it's impossible to look into your sewer system without digging it up and cracking it open, this convenient alternative becomes highly effective in detecting damage without causing much interference with your daily routine–or damage to your front yard.

How it works: When hiring us for an inspection, we'll arrive on time, ready to get to work. We'll insert the camera cable into your drain line or main point of your sewage line and feed it through to take a look around. Our cameras record high-definition video footage of the inside of your pipes, giving us a 360-degree view of what's lurking beneath the surface. As you can imagine, this comes in handy for a number of purposes that extend beyond addressing why water isn't flowing into the sewer as it should. 

Some of the most common reasons our customers request sewer camera inspection in Traverse City include:

  • Locating damage. When you know something is off with your plumbing, but you can't tell exactly what, getting an inspection will clear up the confusion. We will be able to tell what's causing your clog and know exactly how to fix it.
  • Regular maintenance. If you want to make sure your sewer line is in good shape, getting an annual sewer camera inspection is an excellent idea. It may be the difference in avoiding high repair costs by discovering and resolving small issues when they occur and when they do not. Even if we don't find an issue in your pipes, the inspection will give you total peace of mind.
  • Locating pipes. Not sure where your pipes are located? Traverse City sewer cameras send a signal that we can pick up using a locator device above ground.
  • Remodeling inspection. Remodeling your home may involve additions or modifications that cover or need to tap into existing pipes. This first step can help you determine what's possible for your project.
  • Finding lost items. If you have ever lost an important or expensive item down the drain, you know that if you could jump in to retrieve it, you would. Smaller items can travel quite far down your pipe, quite possibly reaching the municipal sewer. To catch them, we'll use our camera and find them before it's too late.
  • New home sewer inspection. Thinking about purchasing a new home? You'll likely want to know what the condition of the sewer pipes is like. We can tell you what type of pipes were installed, what their condition is, and if the previous owner stayed on top of maintenance as they said they did.

Traverse City sewer camera inspection may also be the first step we take in a sewer line repair service. It will help us locate the damage so we know where to dig and if a trenchless repair method is possible.

Traverse City Sewer Camera Inspection FAQs

What Can a Sewer Camera Inspection in Traverse City Find?

A sewer camera inspection in Traverse City can find the cause of a clog. This may be a build-up of debris, a tree root, or a collapsed pipe. It can also find lost items, such as rings or other valuables, along with the actual location of your pipes. In other words, it's an incredibly versatile service with many uses!

Why Can’t a Sewer Camera Inspection Detect a Leak?

Leak detection is a complicated process that requires many more facets than just a sewer camera inspection. While a sewer scope inspection can detect the condition of sewer lines, it can't detect whether a point of damage is causing a leak. Why? Because the camera is inside of your pipes. While we may be able to see a crack or hole, we can't know for sure it's leaking without the help of other professional instruments. If you suspect you have a leak, ask us about our leak detection services!
