A sewer camera is essentially a waterproof video camera that is installed on the tip of a long cable and threaded through the access port of your drains. The camera projects an image of the line’s interior onto an external monitor. The Twin Plumbers’ sewer camera actually has a color monitor, which helps us really see exactly what’s going on in your system. We get a crystal clear picture of the problem, and from there we can go about solving it!
If you have a drain issue in your home where you have a sewer odor in your living spaces, slow draining in your sink, or one or more fixtures backing up, then you can expect the plumber who arrives at your home to use sewer camera inspection to get to the root of the problem. If you have old plumbing — especially if your pipes are made of outdated materials such as cast iron or Orangeburg — then you should have your pipes inspected anyway! It can’t hurt to know what’s going on with your plumbing.
Just having a sewer camera inspection generally costs about 99 to 325 dollars for residential jobs. However, right now in Studio City and Sherman Oaks the Twin Plumbers are offering free sewer camera inspection service! We think it’s really important for people to know the condition of their plumbing systems — especially if the home is old. We tend not to think very much about our home’s plumbing when it’s working, but problems really can happen over night.
