Sewer Line Camera Inspections

Sewer Pipe Inspections

The first step to beginning any trenchless pipe repair project is to have a comprehensive video inspection of your sewer pipes. A high-quality inspection will show you the current conditions of your sewer pipes, reveal issues such as blockages, channeling, cracks, leaks, tree roots, etc., locate branch lines and plumbing bends, and measure the length, diameter, and general layout of your system. It’s truly the only way to know what’s going on inside your pipes.

It All Starts Here

If you are hoping to repair your pipes with trenchless pipe lining, you will need a professional sewer pipe inspection. Pipelining Technologies uses the best HD sewer cameras in the industry producing clear, full-color footage as well as recording key information regarding your pipes.

When performing a sewer inspection, we take note of the diameter of the pipe, any diameter changes, length of pipe, as well as the number and location of branch connections. The video inspection of your sewer lines also helps us determine exactly where cracks, roots, and other problems may be. Such information is required for creating a lining proposal as well as for ordering the correct material.

Typically, a video inspection is made both before and after work is done. A copy of the inspection video is provided to the property owner.

In addition to the video inspection, we supply a not-to-scale drawing of your plumbing system, along with a report of our findings. We ensure that you will know exactly what is wrong with your pipes and where the problems exist.

Choose the Right Sewer Pipe Inspection

Video inspection of sewer and stormwater drainage lines is a necessary step in identifying the problems and proposing the best solutions for aging or damaged pipes. Similar to an x-ray from the doctor, you want the most advanced equipment to be used when you are seeking to diagnose and resolve issues associated with defective pipes. Pipelining Technologies, Inc. uses hi-def cameras with self-leveling capabilities, so you will be able to clearly see problems within the sewer or stormwater drainage system.

Also referred to as sewer scopes, camera inspections, video scopes, video pipe inspection, CCTV inspection, and more can cost anywhere from $0 to $1500 and up. So what’s the difference?

A comprehensive sewer video inspection with all of the qualifying factors we mentioned above will not be free. The equipment required and skilled technicians needed for such inspections would be cost-prohibitive. Make sure you know what type of “inspection” you will receive before you schedule an appointment.
If you already have a plumber’s video and want to discuss pipe lining, we would be happy to take a look at it. In most cases, we need to perform our own sewer video inspections prior to providing a pipe lining estimate due to the nature of the lining process. In order for us to create an accurate lining proposal and install the material correctly. The video must have the following minimum information:

  • Full color – not black and white
  • Record measurement – length and diameter
  • Be clear throughout the video
  • If necessary, a jetter must be used to remove loose debris and water out of the pipe
  • Show any diameter changes and branch lines
  • Record the entire system

Real Estate Inspections

One common reason for needing a sewer inspection is during a real estate transaction. A sewer inspection can be beneficial to both the buyer and the seller of the property. Here’s why:


When preparing to sell your property, knowing the exact condition of your pipes will give you an advantage. If your sewer or rainwater drainage pipes are in excellent condition, you have a great selling point to put buyers’ minds at ease. On the other hand, if we find that your pipes aren’t in the best shape, we can propose a streamlined plan to rehabilitate them with minimal impact to your property.

Since our trenchless services can save 30% or more over conventional repairs, your budget will stay on track. Keep in mind that our structural pipe lining has a 50-year life use expectancy, so your buyers will love to hear that your property is prepared for the future.


A typical home inspection may include a basic plumbing check-up, but it will not include a complete evaluation of the sewer/drainage pipes. Homes built more than 25 years ago may have reached the end of their anticipated life span, especially in areas where extreme weather conditions, acidic soil, or other factors are involved.

Homes of any age may have had do-it-yourself additions, repairs, or temporary plumbing fixes just waiting to be revealed as soon as you close.
Having a diagnostic sewer inspection gives you the confidence to know exactly what you’re buying. We’ll supply you with a detailed report of our findings along with a digital copy of the video and a line drawing (not-to-scale) of the system.

What makes trenchless sewer repair better than traditional sewer repair methods?

Trenchless sewer repair eliminates the need for large-scale destruction of floors and landscaped areas to conventionally replace the damaged pipes, the costs associated with replacing those surfaces, and limits the exposure to health and environmental risks created by major sewer excavations.

When is the city responsible for sewer lines and sewer backups?

Individual municipalities have varying rules regarding the line where private property (including underground drainage) becomes public property. Generally, your private sewer main, or lateral, becomes the responsibility of the city at the tap to the city sewer. Blockages and backups in the city sewer system can cause backups on private property, so identifying the location of the blockage is very important as it relates to responsibility.

How long does it usually take to do a trenchless sewer repair job?

In residential homes, a good rule of thumb is “one liner per day.” For example, if your home has a building main, two bathrooms, a kitchen and a laundry, that is five individual liners, hence five days of work. On large-scale commercial or high-rise condominium projects, more aggressive timelines are typical, with anywhere from two to four liner installations a day.

Is there a warranty on the work that is done and the materials?

Pipelining Technologies offers a full five (5) year parts AND labor warranty on every pipe lining job. This is four years more than a conventional Plumber’s one-year warranty and pipe lining carries a transferrable minimum fifty (50) year life-use expectancy.

Would we have to leave the home or business while the work is being done?

No. Pipelining Technologies works to stagger brief water shutoffs in a way that residential customers will have some facilities to use each day of the project. Since pipe lining can be performed in a much shorter timeframe than pipe replacement, there are typically only a few days of slight inconvenience in comparison to several weeks of water shut off with conventional pipe replacement.

Does trenchless sewer repair work on tall buildings such as apartments or condominiums?

Lining of vertical stacks in high-rise buildings is amongst the most cost effective and time saving applications of trenchless pipe lining, also known as CIPP, cured-in-place pipe. Conventional replacement of a vertical stack on a building of significant height can take weeks, even months to complete, and the residents are without water to the affected facilities for the entire time. Pipe lining can accomplish the same job in two days by lining from the roof continuously to the underground with little to no need to enter individual units.

3-Steps to Trenchless Pipe Lining

Video Inspection

We begin all pipe lining projects with a detailed forensic study of the existing pipe system by means of a HD video camera inspection. A digital copy of the video is yours to keep.

Sewer Pipe Cleaning

The sewer system is cleaned using hydro (water) jetting and/or a mechanical cleaning process that removes scale, buildup, debris, blockages and restores flow in the existing pipes. 

Lining & Reinstatement

Your cleaned pipes are lined with an epoxy saturated tube (liner). The tube hardens and the new structural line becomes stronger than PVC. Robotic equipment is used to reopen branch lines.
