What Is a Video Drain Inspection?

We use a drain inspection camera that allows our service technicians to watch a live feed, looking inside of pipes between 2 and 36 inches in diameter. The high resolution of our cameras allows us to locate even the smallest cracks and imperfections in your drains and pipes.

At Zoom Drain of Orange County, our sewer and drain technicians begin every service with a thorough inspection of your system to locate the cause of your drain problems and give insight into the health of your system’s pipes. A video inspection is very unobtrusive, as it prevents the need to dig up your pipes to inspect the inner lines and tubes of your sewer and plumbing system. That's why it's preferred by our customers.

What Common Problems Are Found in a Sewer & Drain Inspections?

Whether you’re dealing with a reoccurring slow-moving drain in your home, unexplained spikes in your water bill, or another type of draining problem, a thorough inspection of your system via your sewer drains allows us to quickly locate the problem and offer you a reliable, affordable solution.

Some of the most common problems we find during a plumbing video inspection include:

  • Low Points – If your sewer sags or bellies, it can create the perfect trap for dirt and other debris to build, often leading to a large clog or obstruction that reoccurs even after cleaning. If the low point is ignored for long enough, the seals on your pipes may come undone, leading to disastrous results. Our cameras give our team the chance to locate the exact point where your pipe sags and should be repaired.
  • Offset Pipes – Whether shifting is due to weather, earthquakes, or another environmental change, a large enough offset of your pipe can lead to an obstruction in flow. Once the area is identified, a few repair options will be presented, including minimally invasive trenchless sewer repair.
  • Physical Obstructions – From a tree root or rock to an unlucky rodent that found its way through a crack, physical obstructions could be the cause of your drain problems. Depending on what exactly is stuck in your system, our team should be able to complete a thorough cleaning and repair to make sure the chance of it happening again is reduced.
  • Gunk Buildup – Your pipe’s walls trap a little bit of everything that passes through your system, from soap to leftover cooking grease. Since grease and oil aren’t water-soluble, the trapped gunk will eventually lead to a major clog and prohibit the free flow of waste. Using jet cleaning, we can get your pipes looking like new—usually within the same service. The added benefit of video inspections is that everything is recorded, allowing you to compare the before and after videos of our work.
  • Pipe Damage – Ultimately, the chance of discovering that your sewer pipes are collapsing or cracking depends on the exact materials used and the age of your pipes. If the water flow is not obstructed and there are no signs of damage, there may not be anything that needs to be done! Regardless of the severity of your plumbing damage, our team can locate the cause via our sewer inspection camera technology.

How Often Should I Have a Drain & Sewer Scope Inspection?

We recommend having a video inspection of your system completed at least once a year. If your system is older than a decade, you may need to have your system inspected more often, around every six months or so. We also strongly recommend requesting a sewer inspection for home purchase, if it is not already included in your contingencies.

Even if you’re currently not experiencing any problems with your drains or plumbing and sewer system, you should have your sewer system inspected regularly to ensure everything is working properly. Just like the rest of your system, routine inspection and maintenance is key to preventing future plumbing emergencies and headaches.
