Multiple clogged drains and frequent sewage backups are indications of a sewer line issue. If you have been experiencing these in your home, it’s time to enlist the help of Bryco Plumbing. As the most trusted plumbers in San Fernando Valley and Los Angeles, CA, we offer comprehensive sewer inspections using video cameras.
Before this technology has become readily available for residential and commercial use, the only way to get a look at your sewer line was through excavation and educated guesswork. Nowadays, our plumbers use a small camera that we feed through an access point to see your pipes.
This camera is attached to a flexible rod so we can move it further down the line to accurately locate clogs or damages inside the pipe. Our plumbers will then give you several options on how to deal with the sewer line issue, making sure to take into consideration your unique situation and preferences.
As part of our comprehensive plumbing service, we also offer hydro jetting services.
Importance of Regular Sewer Inspections in Los Angeles
Sewer lines are responsible for removing wastewater away from your home. When there is a clog or break in the pipeline, the sewage water cannot pass through and causes backups. Other times, the clog can cause your sewer line to break or burst. A leaking sewer line is not just messy and smelly, but it can also put your health at risk. This is why annual or bi-annual sewer inspections are important.
The benefits of sewer line inspections in Woodland Hills include:
- Spot sewer line problems early.
- Pinpoint problem areas in the sewer line faster.
- Save you money on a more expensive repair or replacement.
- You can see for yourself the actual condition of your pipes.
Our sewer line inspections are also beneficial for homeowners or real estate agents looking to sell or buy a new home in the Greater Los Angeles area.

How a Sewer Video Inspection Works and Types of Problems It Can Identify
Sometimes we tend to overlook sewer problems and they go undetected because we don’t know what we don’t see. Fortunately, there’s a quick and easy solution. Sewer video inspection is an efficient utility location tool used to find blockages, cracks, and leaks in your sewer pipes.
Rather than digging up the entire length of a pipe to identify and fix the problem, a high-resolution video camera connected to a flexible fiber-optic scope is used to inspect the inside of the sewer line or tube. The scope is designed to maneuver and bend around corners and curves to reach any problem areas. As the camera travels through the pipe, technicians above ground can watch the live video feed using a monitor.
In addition to being utilized to find obstructions, leaks, and holes, video pipe inspection could effectively:
- Detect potential weak points or future problems.
- Identity points of termination and misalignment, vaults and laterals.
- Verify if current conditions conform to regulations.
- Determine the depth, grade and layout of sewer and utility pipes.
- See the position of a root intrusion.
- Find points of punctures, corrosion or breakage.
- Pinpoint grease clogs and buildups.
- Locate undetectable storm and sanitary sewer laterals.
Sewer video inspection can also be used after repair or cleaning service to ensure all work has been done correctly.
