Long gone are the days when wrenches and sledgehammers were the most powerful tools in the plumber’s arsenal. In the 21st century, waterproof video cameras are easily the most valuable tool at our certified plumbers’ disposal. These cameras allow us to perform a thorough visual inspection of your sewer lines and underground pipes. Whether the flaw is under cement or beneath the home’s foundation, our cameras allow us to identify the problem and apply the appropriate repair solution.
Video Inspection and Sewer Repairs in Alexandria
When you schedule a sewer camera inspection, our certified and fully insured plumbing team will arrive at your home or business with a specially outfitted service truck. This vehicle is equipped with a generator and video monitoring compartment that makes it easy for us to perform the inspection quickly and efficiently.
The camera itself is attached to the vehicle and will be lowered directly into the sewer pipes. As the camera returns images to the plumber, we’ll record any damage we discover and any potential challenges to performing the repair. Our plumbing technicians analyze this data in real time, which allows us to deliver fast results to our clients following the inspection. In many cases, we can perform same-day repairs of the problems we discover. For example, we can cut away roots that have grown into the pipeline, remove debris, or apply chemicals that can reduce the roots’ growth rate within the pipes. However, some problems will require excavation. For example, if old pipes are significantly damaged, it may be necessary to replace them.

Video Removes the Guesswork from Identifying Sewer Problems in Northern Virginia
Sewer line video inspections make it easy to quickly identify the cause and location of problems within your sewer lines. Sophisticated systems provide real-time data regarding the physical location, depth, and nature of the problem, whether it is a broken pipe, overgrown root, or stubborn grease clog. This allows our certified and insured plumbing technicians to identify the problem and recommend the most effective solution accurately.
