WHAT IS A VIDEO CAMERA INSPECTION? HOW DOES IT WORK?
Since we cannot just pop open a drain and peer inside the plumbing lines more than a couple inches, a video camera inspection is the only way to determine 100% what is troubling the line or causing the present issues with your plumbing. Video Camera Inspections can be done on both interior and exterior plumbing, sewer and septic drain lines.
One of TKS Contracting's finest plumbers will insert a fiber-optic cable, equipped with a powerful mini-camera and light, into your plumbing or drain lines. The camera sends back a real-time video to a screen where the plumber can observe the condition of the line. The camera is equipped with a measuring device so we can positively identify exactly where the plumbing issue is located within the drain line.
The video camera inspection will locate spots where there are leaks, blockages, root invasion, breaks, joint-splits, compressed or failed pipelines. Knowing the exact issue and location of the plumbing issue allows us to provide you with the best estimate possible to repair or replace your plumbing, sewer or septic drain lines.

When would I need a Video Camera Inspection of my Plumbing Lines?
If the drains in your home are gurgling, are not draining as well as they should or you have noticed a wet spot inside or outside your home, you should call TKS Contracting at once to schedule a Video Camera Inspection on your plumbing lines. A Video Camera Inspection will provide a visual, real-time inspection of the interior of your pipes.
Another great reason to have a video camera inspection of your plumbing and drain lines is if when you are considering the purchase of a new home. Sure, the home inspector will run some water down the lines and if it flows, they will give your plumbing a green light. For a small fee, save yourself some serious heartache and serious cash down the road by having your plumbing lines inspected. Old cast-iron, Orangeburg plumbing material, excessive build-up or bellied drain lines can cost thousands of dollars to repair or replace.

A typical sewer camera inspection costs $200 for a residential sewer lateral inspection, and most video inspections are completed within one hour (sewer line inspection cost varies if more time is required).
The $200 fee includes all set-up, inspection and clean-up time, and time for you to talk to our knowledgeable service technician and get direct answers to your plumbing concerns. There are times a sewer lateral inspection may cost more. If there is no accessible clean out, we may need to remove a toilet, complete the camera inspection, and reinstall the toilet, and for that we charge another $150. If we need to get on to the roof to run the camera from the roof vents, we charge an additional $100.
