If you haven’t looked inside your sewer pipes lately, it’s time to call a professional plumber. You could have serious problems lurking inside the sewer pipes. The best way to identify those problems is to invest in a sewer video inspection.
If you’re not sure you need a video inspection of your sewer lines, read the information described below. If you’re dealing with any of the five issues listed here, it’s time to call a plumber.
You Have Frequent Drain Clogs
If you’ve been dealing with frequent drain clogs, a sewer video inspection can help you find the cause. Several problems can cause frequent clogs. One of those problems includes dirty drains. Over time, your drains and sewer lines can get clogged with food, grease, and waste.
When that happens, the drain openings can shrink, causing drains to clog. A sewer video inspection will show where waste has built up. That way, your plumber can take a targeted approach to sewer line clearing.
You’re Renovating Your Home
If you’re renovating your home, it’s a good idea to start with a sewer video inspection. A video inspection will let you know if your sewer lines can handle the added pressure of a home renovation project.
That’s especially important if you plan to renovate your bathrooms or kitchen. That way, you can have your plumber update your plumbing system before you start your project.

You Hear Gurgling Sounds
If you have foul odors or strange sounds coming from your drains, you need to have a plumber take a closer look. Your sewer lines could have hidden damage that needs repairs.
Cracks, leaks and clogs can cause odors and unusual sounds to come up through the drains. To identify the source of the problem, you need to look inside the drains. That’s where a sewer video inspection becomes beneficial. A video inspection will identify the cause of the odors and sounds.
