What Is CCTV Sewer Inspection and How Does It Work?

Whether it’s a clogged tub that’s interrupting your morning routine, a water backup that shuts down your restaurant’s kitchen or gurgling noises coming from your public restroom, when your plumbing is blocked, you need to get to the root of the problem as fast as possible. Thankfully, a CCTV sewer inspection can help property owners all over Edmonton get their plumbing back to normal quickly.

What Is CCTV? 

Closed Circuit Television Video, or CCTV for short, involves using a camera to see inside your drains, sewer line or other pipelines.
A CCTV unit consists of a durable, damage-resistant stainless steel camera head that’s affixed to a long line of waterproof push cable. This camera head is surrounded with high-intensity lights that provide a clear view of the interior of your pipes. This CCTV unit also has a transmitter that sends images and data back to a monitor so your plumber can identify the exact location of the problem. This information is recorded and later used to generate a report based on the findings produced.

What Are the Advantages of CCTV? 

A CCTV camera allows plumbing professionals to get to the root of issues without having to rely on invasive inspection methods like digging up buried pipes or removing appliances, walls or flooring to gain access to your plumbing. CCTV cameras offer an environmentally friendly, cost-effective inspection method that can be configured to serve a number of different situations, making them a highly versatile tool. 

Plumbing professionals use CCTV cameras to quickly and accurately pinpoint the exact location of drain, sewer and pipe blockages, determine what’s causing them and then recommend the easiest and most affordable repair solution based on their findings. And because CCTV cameras are non-invasive, they are highly cost-effective. They can even be used for preventive maintenance so that small issues can be identified before they turn into major problems.
