A sewer camera inspection is a valuable tool, to help visually see if there is a problem with your house's sewer system. Perhaps you noticed a foul sewer odour coming from the sink. Or maybe your drainages are not draining as good as they once did. Or worse, perhaps you have an overflowing toilet.

Sewer camera inspections are available in both new and older homes. It is important to check all main sewer lines at both of these levels. Older homes may have a single line or two-line sewer systems. If you're inspecting an older home, be sure to use the same testing procedures that you would for a newer home. While you may not have the luxury of having a sewer camera inspection done on an older home, it is still a good idea to check your pipes even if you are not buying a new home. This way you can identify problems early, before they become major issues.
Sewer camera inspections typically last between one and three hours. If the sewer camera inspection is being done for a new home, the inspectors will need to do a more thorough inspection. Older homes often have additional issues to deal with and additional camera inspections will be necessary.
One of the most common areas that a sewer camera inspection will turn up is sump pit issues. Often time's older houses will have wooden sewer lines that have been in place for many years. The wear and tear on these pipes may have caused some damage to the pipe connections or perhaps there are missing pipe connections. If these issues are not addressed, water could accumulate in the pits causing them to overflow. A camera can help you better identify how to correct the problem.
Sewer camera inspections can also detect the presence of rusty pipes. If you have noticed areas of discoloration or rust on your metal pipes, then this is another sign of damage that needs to be fixed. These damages can be picked up easily with a handheld metal detector. A sewer camera inspection in the bay area is particularly useful because many basements have only bay area to work with. You don't want to miss any areas where water could be building up due to rusty pipes.
Another area that can be detected by a sewer camera inspection is around sinks, faucets and showers. When pipes are leaking, they can often get backed up into the plumbing system. Leaks in the plumbing can eventually lead to leaks in the pipes and this is exactly why you want to perform a regular inspection of your sewer system. The last thing that you would want is for a major plumbing issue to occur and cause a large leak in your home.
