Before completing or updating a home in San Francisco by re-pouring driveways, walkways (concrete or paving), retaining walls, foundations, or completing a bathroom remodeling project, homeowners need to make sure that the existing underground sewer lines are in good condition. This is especially important if the home is over 50 years old. To do this, most San Francisco sewer contractors will use a sewer video camera, like how we do at Sugar Bear Plumbing Co..
Often times the adequacy of existing water supply and underground sewer pipes aren’t accounted for by homeowners during their remodeling plans. Underground sewer lines may be at the end of their useful lives, however, after operating for over 50-60 years. So when you add bathrooms and additional appliances, you could have a major sewer problem in the works.
A good San Francisco plumber with the aid of a video camera can literally determine the condition inside the underground sewer pipe. The video camera will show you places in the sewer pipe that are cracked, broken, or clogged. They can also be used to ensure that any items that were clogging your pipes have been removed.
The sewer video camera consists of a flexible rod with a specially designed, high-resolution video camera on its tip. The video cameras for residential use are smaller, but are similar to the cameras used by cities to inspect sewer lines. The tip also has a strong LED light. Together these are inserted into the pipe for inspection. As the rod is pushed through the pipe, the waterproof camera records its progress and findings. Video images are transmitted to the camera operator and can be saved onto a videotape for a permanent record.
