When is sewer camera inspection necessary?
In most cases, we recommend sewer camera inspection if our customers tell us that their drains are backing up, or 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 originated 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 for sewer camera inspection as well. Before any pipeling can be done, we need to make sure there are no existing or potential problems in your sewer line.
