    What Are Sewer Cameras?

    Our seasoned technicians insert a flexible cable with a high-definition camera attached at the end of the cable into the pipe. We then see a live feed of the insides of your sewer lines through a monitor.

    This technology allows us to determine not only the significant damage causing the current problem but spot minor ones that could cause further damage in the future if left unchecked, saving you both time and money.

    Types Of Issues We Identify Through The Use of A Sewer Camera

    An inspection with The Drain Guys Plumbing & Drain Cleaning’s professional sewer camera provides you with detailed and comprehensive insight into your sewage lines’ overall condition. Here are some issues we can identify using a sewer camera:

    Broken, Cracked, And Collapsed Pipes

    Due to reasonable wear and tear, your pipes may have been damaged, shifted, or collapsed. Sewer cameras can easily spot these, given their small size.

    Infiltrations Of Tree Roots

    One of the most prevalent issues we see during sewer and plumbing inspection services in Torrance, CA, is root infiltrations. This issue is common in pipes made from either clay or cast iron. If a crack is present in your sewer line, infiltration is possible when the growth of the tree root extends outward in search of water. Because of these roots, your sewer lines are subjected to significant damage.

    Sagging Sewer Lines

    Another issue is sagging sewer lines. Water will start to build up in the area where your sewer pipe is sagging, resulting in a recurrent blockage.

    Blocked Pipes

    As time passes, developing a major blockage from a buildup of either grease or paper is not uncommon. When this occurs, the result is often a backup in your sewer lines.

    Sewer Line Locations

    In most cases, homeowners do not know the location of their sewer lines. Situations like these arise, especially when a newly purchased home (or rental) did not come with the sewer lines’ location. Our sewer cameras enable us to pinpoint the sewer lines’ precise location, saving you the hassle of unnecessary digging/damage.

    Most Frequent Causes Of Blockages In Sewer Pipes

    Torrance sewer camera inspections are efficient at determining the nature of the issue with your sewer lines in addition to the core cause of the problem. We aim to make a permanent fix, not a band-aid solution. Only by understanding the cause of the block are we able to do this.
    There are several reasons why you may have a clog in your drain lines, including:

    • A range of cleansers such as soap, detergent, and shampoo
    • Food and waste particles
    • Organic solids including hair

    If your sewer line is clogged, the most common issues include:

    • Buildup of grease and oil
    • Scale buildup and mineral deposits
    • Intrusion of tree roots

    If you believe your sewer line may have become broken or clogged, give us a call to schedule your sewer line inspection. Not only will we determine the nature of your problem, but we will also precisely identify the cause to offer you the best possible solution to eliminate the problem, including pipe replacement, drain cleaning, and pipe repair.

    Repairing And Replacing Sewer Pipes

    You’re probably wondering what happens if we find an issue, such as a clog in the sewer line. Once our technicians have identified the cause, we will recommend the best possible option to resolve your issue.
    We avoid digging by all means – unless absolutely necessary. If our camera inspection reveals a sag, break, or collapse, the only option possible is often a traditional repair. In this scenario, we will need to access the sewer line by digging a trench.
    The next step is to either repair or replace the damaged sewer line. If at all possible, we employ a trenchless method for repair. In addition to being a far less invasive option, it protects several areas, including your:

    • Yard
    • Driveway

    We use this method to create minor access points to access the area of the damaged pipe. Our technicians then insert a cable into the pipe to repair it.

    When Is A Sewer Line Camera Inspection Necessary?

    Are you still wondering if it’s necessary? In addition to calling for a routine inspection, certain indications generally mean damage to the sewer line or your mainline has become clogged. Examples include seeing puddles of water in your yard or drains clogging regularly. In these instances, call us for an inspection.

      A couple of friends recommended The Drain Guys when I mentioned I needed a water heater inspection. I called them and they come out really quickly and told me that I could repair the water heater. I was relieved because I thought that it was time to replace the unit. They saved me a lot of money

      I was afraid to call a Redondo Beach plumber because I do not have a lot of extra money to spend. But, when I experienced a backflow issue, I had no choice. I am thankful they understood my financial situation and gave me such a great price. They were quick and professional on top of the great price.

No other Long Beach plumbing company has ever kept me informed and been so committed to my needs. It is a breath of fresh air, to say the least. The price was right and I could not be happier with my service. I definitely recommend The Drain Guys Plumbing and Drain cleaning.
