Sewer Camera Inspection & Locating

Welcome to the Rooter and Plumbing SEWER CAMERA INSPECTION AND LOCATING page. It has been our privilege to help people solve all types of residential sewer system problems for the past 20 plus years.


sewer-inspectionWe have always used a state of the art sewer inspection camera, but back in the early 1990’s technology was not anything like it is today and equipment prices were also much higher making it very difficult for most plumbing companies to own one. Of course they were not available anywhere as a rental, so that made getting an inspection from a company who had purchased a camera and locator very expensive.

Professional Sewer Camera Inspections On Your Time!

The camera and location equipment comes in three parts. The actual camera head that is mounted on a push rod along with an electronic signal sending unit, the monitor which provides visual imagery of what the camera is seeing, and lastly an electronic signal receiving unit that is mounted in a hand held wand that picks up the sending signal and gives the exact location of the camera head as it moves through the sewer system.


Sewer lines can be repaired once the cause and location of the problem have been determined. The most common reason sewer lines fail is poor workmanship during construction when the original connection is made between the city line and the house line. The city provides service onto the property just inside the property line, usually long before improvements have been built. This is the sewer line location that fails most often.


Trusted Sewer Camera Inspection and Location – State Of The Art Technology

sewer-cameraTree roots have a way of growing into faulty or weak locations in the sewer line. Given enough time they can establish a root system inside the sewer line that is virtually impossible to remove without excavation. These root systems can grow inside the sewer lines for sometimes as many as 50 years or more without being detected. By that time the problem is way too extensive for any type of sewer snaking to do any good at all. Usually after 10 to 15 years, the problem will become evident and require a regular rooter plan in order to keep the sewer line in service and flowing properly.

Over 20 Years Experience Servicing Sewer Problems

This is a progressive type of problem that will only get worse and over time and will eventually require excavation and repair. Of course, now you will need a plumbing professional who has the right equipment needed to provide an accurate diagnosis and do the necessary locating, excavation, repairs, and back fill.


We use state of the art Ridged See Snake equipment that is built for plumbers who require only the best. Our push rod is 200 feet long, so we can get all the way out to those hard to reach sewer connections, even if we need to access the sewer line from a roof vent. Our viewing monitor is a full color battery powered unit that is complete with a memory card drive that will record images and video for future use by a third party.
