VIDEO DRAIN INSPECTION & SEWER LOCATING
How is a video camera used?
Jim Dandy Sewer and Plumbing offers the latest
technology in video sewer and plumbing drain inspection throughout Seattle, Ballard, Magnolia, Wallingford, West Seattle, Mercer Island and Bellevue.
A video camera is a small camera that uses infrared, lighting to illumine the inside of a sewer pipe. It contains a small transmitter. The video camera is attached to the end of a sewer cable, just like the radio transmitter.
The camera is pushed down the drain or sewer line. A technician receives the closed circuit live picture and views it on a
monitor as the picture records to a videotape. The camera also sends a signal to the receiver held by the technician.
This allows the technician to know where the camera is and how deep it is. Therefore, the camera locates the actual
break so you know where to excavate.
- locates a break in a drain line
- identifies the location of a drain line
- visually identifies a break
- confirms the present condition of the line
- provides you with a videotape of your sewer
- *New - uploaded to YouTube for your convenience
In what diameter lines can the camera be used?
The camera can be used in 3" to 18" lines.
What are the benefits of a camera location over a radio location?
The camera allows you to actually see the interior
condition of the drain line. It also lets you see the material the drain line is made from. You can tell if the problem
with your drain line is in a specific location, or if the whole line or a portion of the line needs replacing. If there is
a break in the line, the camera not only confirms the location of the break but allows you to see the nature of the break,
as well. A camera can also be used to visually inspect the condition of a sewer line when planning to connect another sewer
into the line. It can also be used for pre-house sales or whenever the need arises to confirm that a sewer is in good condition.
As an additional courtesy we will upload your sewer line inspection video to YouTube for your convenient viewing needs or sharing requirements! Share with
potential buyers/sellers, other family members or view at work to capture interior conditions of your drain line.
