All of our work starts and ends with a camera inspection, with our sewer camera going inside your sewer line to find the underground problems you can’t see. By making sewer line camera inspections a routine part of what we do, we can quickly diagnose an existing issue or simply give you peace of mind that your sewer line is in good shape.

How Indianapolis Sewer Line Camera Inspections Work

With the use of our drain cameras, we are able to inspect your entire sewer system to diagnose current and potential sewer issues. The sewer camera itself is a small device at the end of a few inches of electronic cable. This cable is then attached to a length of flexible wire that allows it to bend around corners or obstructions.

The cable is connected to a monitor that offers a real-time image of whatever the sewer camera sees. With a built-in light, it illuminates the surrounding area so that the technician can identify what the obstructions or clogs are made from.

After the technician runs the camera down the entire length of the sewer line, they’ll provide you with a full diagnosis of existing and potential problems. Lastly, they’ll offer a set of possible solutions for addressing those issues, either trenchless sewer line repair using our lining technology, or excavation if lining is not an option.

Important Facts to Know About Sewer Camera Inspections

Some home inspectors only recommend sewer line inspections if the home was built in the 1980s or earlier, but we always recommend a sewer line scope. We’ve seen brand-new properties with serious sewer line issues. It’s always better to know the state of your sewer line, even if it’s just for your peace of mind.

If we find a problem during the sewer line camera inspection, you’ll have the power to negotiate with the seller for a reduced price or repairs before closing. We can do most repairs without digging up your future yard or driveway. Our sewer inspections help you avoid costly surprises down the road and ensure you know exactly what you’re getting when you make a life-changing purchase.

FAQs on Our Indianapolis Sewer Camera Inspection Services

We’ve taken some of our most frequently asked questions and answered them so that you can have a better understanding of our sewer cameras.

Are sewer camera inspections included in a traditional home inspection?

Typically, no. With traditional home inspections, cameras aren’t normally put through the pipes to examine the condition of the sewer system. Occasionally, a home inspector will offer a sewer or drain camera inspection for an additional fee, however, they won’t be able to provide you with a quote for repairs. Because sewers are often skipped during traditional inspections, inspectors may not notice the costly problems lurking underground.

It’s best to have NuFlow Indy perform the sewer line camera inspection so that you can receive a professional diagnosis along with a quote for any repairs that may be needed. Our no-dig camera inspections can give you peace of mind before making a huge purchase.

How do I know when it’s time for a sewer camera inspection in Indiana?

Since your system is underground, you may not notice the smaller issues until they become bigger. You should schedule an Indiana sewer line camera inspection when you:

  • Are moving into a new home
  • See unusually green, wet patches on your lawn
  • Notice water damage and mold
  • Smell objectionable odors
  • Experience slow drains that often back up
  • Have water pressure issues

What happens after a sewer line camera inspection with NuFlow?

We keep things fully transparent, explaining any issues and our recommended plan of action. After your Indiana sewer camera inspection, we will either perform mechanical or hydrojet cleaning. This will help clear your pipes of any debris, roots and corrosion, and it also prepares your pipes for the new lining. After that, we insert the liner. Lastly, when the repair or restoration is complete, we’ll follow up within three weeks to ensure the system is working properly!

Is the city responsible for my sewer line?

It depends. Main sewer lines running from your home to the city main are typically your responsibility. Depending on your location, the responsibility could shift to the city once your line reaches a city structure, such as a sidewalk. Each case is different and your NuFlow Indy service technician will be able to determine what is your liability and what isn’t.

NuFlow Indy has had the pleasure of helping diverse industries throughout our 35+ years of experience. Working on all major piping materials, both inside and outside of a property, we can help avoid downtime or damage for your organization.

With NuFlow Indy, this won’t be long, as our repairs are much faster than traditional sewer line replacement.
