Sewer Camera Inspection Services in Toronto

Sewer camera inspections are a critical plumbing diagnostic procedure. By carefully feeding a camera equipped with 200 feet of cable through your home’s pipeline, our plumbers can pinpoint the exact location of a clog and its cause. The sewer camera inspection process is also minimally invasive; it helps us avoid unnecessary digging in your basement or yard to locate a pipe problem.

Problems Video Drain Inspection Can Identify

A sewer camera inspection is a valuable tool for identifying a wide range of issues within a sewer system. Here are some of the problems that a video drain inspection can identify:

  1. Foreign Objects: Foreign objects most often end up in the pine when flushed down the toilet by mistake.
  2. Tree Roots: Tree roots growing through a pipeline can cause misaligned, offset or broken pipes.
  3. Collapsed or Cracked Pipes: Small cracks or breaks in the sewer pipes can be hard to detect without a visual inspection. These can lead to leaks and groundwater contamination.
  4. Unserviceable Build-Up: Over time, pipes can corrode or accumulate scale, especially in older systems. This can lead to restricted water flow and eventual blockages.
  5. Intrusion of Debris: An accumulation of toilet paper, or other debris
  6. Intrusion of Grease and Oil: An accumulation of grease, oil, and fats – this is especially common in lines from kitchens

What is Sewer Camera Inspection?

Sewer camera inspection is a modern and efficient way of inspecting the condition and functionality of sewer pipes and drains. It involves using a high-resolution camera attached to a bendable cable inserted into the sewer system and transmitting live video footage to a monitor. This technique allows the plumber to see the inside of the pipes and identify any problems, such as clogs, cracks, leaks, roots, or corrosion.

The benefits of using sewer camera inspection are numerous. They include but, are not limited to:

1. Preventive Maintenance and Cost Savings: Sewer camera inspection can help you save money by detecting and preventing potential issues before they become more severe. This will save money on repairs, replacements, and damages by addressing the primary source of the problem. Using sewer camera inspection technology can also extend the lifespan of your sewer pipes and drains by reducing the need for frequent cleaning and maintenance.

2. Improved Property Value and Resale Potential: Sewer camera inspection can enhance the value and appeal of your property by ensuring that your sewer system is in good condition and meets the standards and codes. It can also provide you with a detailed report and documentation of your sewer system, which can be helpful for insurance claims, home inspections, and buyers’ confidence.

3. Environmental and Health Considerations: Sewer backups, overflows, and leaks can harm the environment and your health. A sewer camera inspection can help protect against contaminating the soil, groundwater, and surface water. Sewer inspections also prevent the growth of mould, bacteria, and pests, which prevents health issues, such as allergies.

Sewer camera inspection differs from traditional inspection methods in several ways. Unlike conventional methods that require digging, excavation, or guesswork, sewer camera inspection is non-invasive, accurate, and fast. It can access hard-to-reach areas and provide a clear and comprehensive view of the entire sewer system. It can also record and store video footage for future reference and analysis.

The Sewer Camera Inspection Process

At Morrison Plumbing & Mechanical, we use state-of-the-art technology and expertise to execute our sewer camera inspection process. This process allows us to accurately identify and address a range of sewer line issues with precision and efficiency.

Step 1 – Access the System:

We locate and access the sewer cleanout, a capped pipe allowing entry into the sewer system. We will remove the cap and insert the camera cable into the pipe. The camera cable connects to a monitor that displays a live video feed for our expert team to watch and review.

Step 2 – Conducting the Inspection:

To examine the pipe we slowly move the camera cable through the pipe while watching the monitor for any signs of problems or defects. For a complete diagnostic overview, we inspect the entire length of the sewer pipe and any lateral connections, branches, or bends. Our team also utilizes a locator device that can track the position and depth of the camera cable underground to locate the areas where there are issues or potential issues in the system.

Step 3 – Review the Findings & Provide Solutions:

Our experts will review the video footage with you, offering a clear and detailed explanation of any issues detected. With the findings, we provide our recommendations, and options of solutions tailored to address the specific problems of your sewer system. We will work with you to ensure the solution we choose is a long-lasting and budget-appropriate solution for your home.

Our process ensures that any immediate issues are identified and addressed. We also review any potential future problems, offering you peace of mind and the assurance of a fully functional sewer system.

Potential Consequences of Untreated Issues

If you neglect or delay the inspection and repair of your sewer system, you may face some serious and unpleasant consequences, including:

  1. Sewer Backups and Overflows: If your sewer pipes are clogged, blocked, or damaged, they may cause the wastewater to back up and overflow into your home or property. This problem can result in foul odours, flooding, property damage, and health hazards. It can also invite pests and rodents that can spread diseases and damage your belongings.
  2. Sewer Leaks and Bursts: If your sewer pipes are cracked, corroded, or misaligned, they may leak or burst under pressure. This issue can cause water damage, soil erosion, foundation problems, and sinkholes. It can also contaminate the groundwater and surface water, posing a threat to the environment and public health.
  3. Sewer Repairs and Replacements: If your sewer pipes are left untreated, they may deteriorate and fail over time. This problem can require extensive and expensive repairs or replacements, which may involve digging, excavation, or trenchless methods. It can also disrupt your daily activities and cause inconvenience and stress.
