Is My Drain Pipe Okay? Would a Video Sewer Inspection Be Helpful?

If we had X-ray vision underground sewer inspection and locating would be simple. Anyone could do it. Unfortunately, we don’t. That’s where video sewer inspection comes into the picture. The camera is inserted into drain lines and used to determine the exact problem with a pipe.

Problems that are routinely found include breaks, cracks, collapses, root infiltration, bellies (a sag in the pipe), and stubborn clogs. Once a pipe is compromised, the situation typically only gets worse. Symptoms often include backups, slow drains, sewer flies, and/or sewer odors. Alpha Plumbing can help you solve all these problems.

At Alpha Plumbing, we’re commercial plumbing experts and can meet the needs of any organization, no matter how large or small the job might be. We’re able to quickly evaluate your problem and provide recommendations for the most cost-effective solutions possible.

We provide comprehensive commercial plumbing services—to clients throughout central Maryland, including Glen Burnie, Annapolis, Pasadena, Odenton, Severna Park, Severn, Arnold, Baltimore, Catonsville, Crofton, and Millersville.

If you need an inspection, we’ll complete the job efficiently. Once on site, the plumber inserts the camera into the pipe through a cleanout or may pull a toilet to access the plumbing system. There’s a live camera video feed that shows the plumber exactly what’s going on. If there’s a clog and there’s standing water in the pipe (other than a belly), it may be necessary to snake the line first to remove the clog.

A recording can be made if necessary, but the recording is not useful in repairing the problem so is typically not made, but it may be needed for justification of work. If a problem is found the locator can be used to find the depth of the pipe and exact location of the problem and paint can be used to mark the spot(s). Pinpointing the problem can help minimize the scope of the work and prevent unnecessary destruction and excavation of your property.
