Sewer Camera Inspections for Sewer Repairs
The most common reason TLC performs video inspections is to identify problems within the sewer line and locate where it needs to be repaired. We use our camera lines both inside homes and outside if the problem is the main drain line.
Video Inspections Identify Sewer Problems
If you are experiencing frequent sewer backups or a backup cannot be cleared by our professionals we would use a camera to inspect the line and locate the problem. The camera will show us the problem and the location along the sewer line which assists us in where to repair or replace the pipe. This prevents TLC from having to dig up the entire pipe in your yard.
Common issues are:
- Roots have broken the sewer line.
- The pipes have become misaligned due to the ground shifting.
- The sewer line has collapsed

Our sewer camera inspection process
Step 1: Prep the drain for access – TLC’s plumbers typically access your sewer line through the drain cleanouts outside your home. If we are accessing the drain through another area other than the cleanout we will move any items located nearby the drain access point and protect your flooring if they are accessing a drain inside your home.
Step 2: Visual camera inspection – The technician will begin the inspection and move the camera through the pipes and watch the screen to look for problems in the pipe.
Step 3: Close up the drain – Once our tech has completed a thorough inspection the camera will be removed and the drain closed up.
Step 4: Report findings – The drain technician will verbally share their findings and follow up with an email containing the video link and an inspection report.
Step 5: Follow up if repairs needed – If we find any areas in the line that needs to be repaired or replaced our plumbers can provide you with a free estimate for repairs.
