Video Pipe & Drain Inspection Services in Cedar Hill, TX
State-of-the-Art Tools for Identifying the Cause of Clogged Drains & Pipes
One of the most common plumbing problems that homeowners in the Dallas area encounter is severe clogs in the drain or sewer system. Sometimes these clogs can be cleared with hot water, baking soda, and vinegar, and sometimes they require the services of professional plumbers, with specialty pipe snakes or high-powered drain augers. In most cases, this is a one-time service, the result of thick clogs of grease, hair, paper products, and organic materials.
Sometimes, however, there is a deeper, more serious problem that causes frequent clogging, such as tree root infiltration in the sewer lines or broken drain pipes. While the drain cleaning service can be repeated as necessary to remove clogs, often, the best solution is to determine what is causing the problem in the first place.

What Is a Pipe Inspection Camera?
A pipe inspection camera is one of the best tools for identifying serious drain and pipe blockages. With a video pipe inspection service, a camera head connected to a long cable, similar in appearance to a pipe snake, is inserted into the pipelines that clog often, allowing professional plumbers to actually see the cause of the problem.

Sewer Camera Inspection Services in the Dallas Area
If you have had problems with your sewer line or septic line, you are buying a house, or you are selling one, it may be a good idea to have a sewer inspection performed. Unseen problems can often lurk in sewer lines, such as crushed pipes, misaligned joints, leaking fittings, or tree root infiltration, all of which can be costly to repair. A sewer inspection uses a small plumbing camera on a long cable to examine the interior of each sewer pipe and check for problems. A professional plumber can easily evaluate the images to determine the extent of the problem and recommend the best procedures for pipe repair or replacement.
A plumbing camera inspection is the best way to determine the condition of your sewer lines and can be invaluable whether you are repairing the problem or you are in negotiations to buy or sell a home. The sewer camera inspection cost will depend on the amount of time it takes to complete, typically several hours, as well as the complexity of the sewer system and the labor costs involved.
Likewise, a plumbing camera can also be used to determine the causes of drain clogs in your home. A drain inspection can find problems like grease accumulations in elbows, foreign objects stuck in drain lines, or physical pipe damage that is hidden inside walls and only visible with a drain camera. At Dial One Johnson Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, we offer both sewer inspections and drain inspections at affordable, cost-effective prices.

Can I Do a DIY Camera Pipe Inspection?
There are relatively low-cost plumbing cameras available, but they often lack the image quality and durability of professional equipment. Plus, the interior of sewer and drain pipes will often be covered with years of sediment, scale, and waste, making it difficult to determine if and where a problem is occurring. Plumbing professionals like our team at Dial One Johnson Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning have the quality equipment required to perform a thorough pipe inspection, as well as the experience and knowledge to successfully identify and locate problems that may be difficult to see or easily missed by someone who is not familiar with the process.

Common Drain & Sewer Problems in the Dallas Area
With pipe inspection cameras, it is possible for plumbers to visually inspect the entire length of many household drains and sewer pipes, even those that are buried underground and those that are permanently encased in your home’s concrete slab. An inspection camera can be used to find a variety of drain, vent, and sewer problems, including:
- Thick clogs of grease, hair, paper products, and organic matter
- Foreign objects that have been flushed or inserted into pipes
- Pipes that have cracked or developed holes
- Pipe joints that are misaligned or damaged due to shifting soil or concrete
- Pipe sections that have been crushed during installation or due to excessive loads
- Tree roots that have infiltrated joints or cracks in pipes
- Bird or rodent nests that have obstructed vent systems
Using our advanced video pipe inspection services, our team of professional plumbers at Dial One Johnson Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning can examine your vent, drain, and sewer lines to determine the severity of any clogs or obstructions, and offer remedies that will work well for your needs and your budget.
