Sewer Camera Inspections

Sewer Camera Inspections

Sewer camera inspections have become extremely popular. Property owners and tenants appreciate the new technology which allows a visual inspection of sewer lines and other piping and no guess work.  With the use of a high-resolution water proof camera the inside condition of pipes are seen. Here at LA Mold Removal one of our professionally trained technicians goes out to the property with a high-resolution water proof camera that allows us to take photos or make a video that will quickly and effectively reveal if any of the following conditions are present:

  • Roots obstructing
  • Build up (grease, oil, etc.)
  • Damaged lines
  • Deteriorated pipes
  • Corroded pipes
  • Improper plumbing instillation
  • Broken joints
  • Shifted connection
  • Items flushed down the toilet or dropped in the sink
  • Pets and other animals present

Last Friday we received an emergency call from the Young family in Los Angeles, water began backing up into their bathtub when they would flush the toilet. They were referred to us by a realtor who had used us for sewer camera inspections previously and was certain we would fix the Young’s plumbing issue. With the use of our top of the line sewer camera we determined there was a clog in the plumbing system. The clog wasn’t from the tub itself but the bathtub and all the fixtures in the bathroom were connected to the same secondary plumbing drain. You may be asking yourself why would this cause the bathtub to back up? Well the base of the bathtub is lower than the toilet which gives water flow less resistance, given that liquids goes where there is less resistance when a drain starts to clog the water will back up into a bathtub first. With the use of the sewer camera we determined exactly where the clog was and using a rooter it was unclog. We did a thorough inspection of all the plumbing in the Young’s home to ensure there was no other clogs or issues present and present them with the footage.
