Drain Camera Inspection
Drain inspection gives a complete understanding of what is happening below ground level. Indeed, a drain inspection determines the nature of the problem(s) and/or the sewer pipe condition, which can't be confirmed only by snaking the drain.
During a drain inspection, 5 Star Drain inspects the condition of the main drain, or any other drain within your home, as well as the outside sewer drain to carefully examine for any plumbing problems. Whether you own a newly purchased home, an older home or simply plan to renovate your basement, your drains are too important to overlook.
Our drain camera inspection services can be used on any drains from 1 inch to 6 inches drains, which are all the drains in your home.

Benefits of a Drain Inspection
Having your drain inspected with a video camera allows our plumbers to get to the root of your problem and helps us solve it without having to excavate or causing any damages in your home! We can help you avoid having to open your walls or reduce future problems through our drain camera services.
Sewer camera inspections help us locate the source of a blockage, leak, or other damage. The camera is attached to a long hose, or snake, giving us the ability to look deep into the sewer line to pinpoint the issue. Once the problem is identified, we will discuss our plan of action for repair or replacement with you.
The problematic materials that we find most often in sewer lines include tree roots, sludge, and grease. The great thing about a camera inspection is that we can show you exactly where the damage is, in real time footage.
Reasons for an Inspection
Your plumbing system should run well on its own most of the time. However, if you suddenly experience unexplained problems with your pipes or sewer lines, you will want to call our plumbing service for help. Here are some reasons why you may need a drain camera inspection:
- Older home inspections: Plumbing systems in older homes have been used. Some pipes may be filled with grease or other blockages that could worsen with time, especially homes with galvanized pipes.
- Sewer inspections before remodeling: If you are looking to remodel or expand your home, you will want to have an inspection made to make sure that the drainage systems is in good condition and that it can handle the additional workload.
- Purchasing a new home: If you are buying a home that is more than 20 years old you should have a drain camera inspection done before purchasing the home. You don’t want to get moved in and then discover that expensive pipe repairs are required. Underground sewer pipe problems are often not obvious during a routine home inspection. Water may flow free in the drains for a time, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t a problem.
Video camera inspection can pinpoint troubled areas in your pipes or sewers and helps visually confirm the cause of the problem. The use of a drain camera in plumbing inspections can reduce the manual labour of traditional plumbing inspection which can become expensive. Our plumbers won’t have to damage your yard or your home only to find that the problem was in another place. Instead, they can minimize the messes caused by knowing exactly where and what the problem is.
When is a drain camera inspection necessary?
In most cases, we recommend a drain camera inspection if our customers tell us that their drains are backing up, or that there is standing water in their yard above the sewer line. Following the water will give you a general idea of where the leak is coming from, but the exact area where the problem originates will need to be identified before any repair work can be carried out.
If you are relining the pipes on your property, we recommend calling us for a drain camera inspection as well. Before any pipeling can be done, we need to make sure that there are no existing or potential problems in your sewer lines.
