Sewer lines are typically hidden from sight and property owners may not realize there is a problem until something goes awry. The last thing you want is for your sewer line to get backed up and push up sewage into your home. We recommend regular sewer line maintenance from our trained technicians to keep lines moving and prevent serious problems before they begin.
Most of the time if the drains are working, we do not think much about them. However, when things begin to slow down, it can be a sign that you need sewer camera inspection. Luckily, at Kizen Plumbing, we offer advanced sewer camera inspections capable of identifying problems you may have never caught otherwise. With these inspections, you can save time and money by pinpointing the exact spot where there’s a problem in your sewer line. Here are some early warning signs it is time for a professional sewer camera inspection:

There may be nothing more frustrating and worse than a plumbing problem. Not only are you dealing with water leaks or backed up sewage that can damage your home, but most of the problems end up being in places that you can’t see or reach! That is where sewer cameras and line locators come in. Let us discuss each of these in details:
A sewer camera, as its name suggests, is a camera designed to be inserted into a pipe or sewer access point so a plumber can find and diagnose plumbing problems.
Most sewer cameras are made up of a small camera attached to the end of a long, flexible cable. These waterproof cameras are used to inspect pipes and sewage lines to determine if there are any breaks, tree roots, or other issues that need to be addressed.
Most are attached to a wheeled cart where the cable, components, and computer can be stored, making them easy to transport. If a copy of an inspection video is required, the camera operator can save the inspection video for later viewing if necessary.
Line locators are an essential tool for anyone working with pipes or cables that are buried in the ground. No one likes having their yard dug up only to find that you’ve located the wrong pipe!
Line locators use radio detection to detect buried pipes and cables. These devices allow the user to find the pipes that they’re looking for and provide accurate depth readings so that they know how deep to dig. This device also allows the user to avoid any other pipes or cables that may be in the area, preventing damage to gas pipes or cable lines that could be buried in the same spot.
If you are having troubles with your sewage line, consider hiring a plumber that brings along a sewer camera. They will be able to better assess your problem and offer the best solution to meet your needs, instead of just sending a drain snake in blindly and hoping it fixes the problem. If you have to dig up your yard for a sewer line repair, make sure you contact us first, otherwise you could end up with your front yard looking like a giant tic-tac-toe board without the fun!
