Are you in need of a sewer camera inspection in Denver, CO? This service is essential if you have a problem somewhere in your home’s plumbing system and need to locate it so it can be repaired. A drain camera inspection involves feeding a camera into a drain on a long, flexible support. The camera sends images back to the operator, who can then see exactly where the blockage or leak is located.
This method of locating clogs and leaks is much less disruptive than the alternatives. In the past, plumbing companies would need to excavate large amounts of earth to locate clogs in the main sewer line. This was extremely disruptive for homeowners, who would have to pay for the work and to restore their yard after the issue was resolved. Today, camera technology makes it easy to find and repair sewer line leaks and clogs with only a minimal amount of hassle and stress.
Professional Drain Camera Services in Denver
Video inspections are a useful way to keep track of the state of your home’s sewer line. We recommend having your sewer line inspected every 18-24 months, or more often if you notice problems. Regular inspections can help to spot the early signs of a clog or other issue, such as tree roots growing into pipes.
- Sewage backup in drains or toilet
- Multiple clogged or slow drains
- Bad smells around drains
- Gurgling noises in pipes
- Water pooling in basement
Sewer camera inspections are great at revealing root intrusions. Roots are naturally attracted to sewer lines as a source of moisture. The sewage inside the pipe can also act as fertilizer for the root, spurring further growth. Over time, the root can grow until it completely blocks the sewer line. This often leads to a sewage smell outside your home and possibly also an increase in pests. You will likely notice damp spots in your yard. When you notice these signs of a problem, contact us to schedule a video inspection of your sewer line.
Objects can also lodge in your sewer line, causing them to back up. We locate all kinds of objects using camera technology, including toys, hygiene products, and even dead rodents. Get in touch if you think someone has flushed something they shouldn’t and we’ll see if we can find and clear the blockage.

How Often Should You Have Your Sewer Line Inspected?
Every appliance in your home that produces wastewater depends on your sewer line to remove it from your home. Meanwhile, many things can cause sewer back-ups, such as tree roots, damaged pipes, grease buildup, or even soil movement creating a low spot in a pipe.
The trouble is that because your sewer pipes are tucked underground and out of sight, it can be difficult to know there is a problem until it is too late. That’s why it is a good idea to have your sewer line inspected every 18-24 months—or as soon as you notice persistent warning signs. Just remember what to look out for, and don’t hesitate to call our Denver sewer line inspection technicians for the help you need ASAP.
Common signs you need a sewer line inspection include:
- Raw sewage backing up into your drain, toilet, or bathtub
- Repeated clogs or multiple clogged drains
- Consistently slow drains
- Frequent sewer odors
- Gurgling sounds coming from your pipes
- Visible water pooling around a floor drain in the basement
- Water backing up in a shower or bathtub drain when washing clothes or dishes
Effective Video Camera Inspections for Your Sewer Lines
Identify and Correct a Number of Problems in Your Sewer or Waterline
Root intrusion occurs when tree or shrub roots become drawn to the moisture in your sewer system, and start to grow around or inside the line. As the wastewater acts as a fertilizer for the root, your sewer line will eventually become blocked, leading to leaks and back-ups. Watch out for damp, green spots in your yard, a persistent sewage smell around your property, an uptick of pests in your home, and slow drains, as these are all signs you need a video inspection to assess your sewer line for root intrusion.
If your sewer line is leaking at the joints, you may not only notice moisture around your exterior property, but wet spots and cracks throughout your home/basement, an increase in your water bill, a nasty sewage odor around your house, as well as possible mold/mildew growth. Call right away for a sewer inspection as soon as you spot any of these signs, and avoid potentially paying thousands to clean up a dangerous sewage spill.
Broken, Cracked or Collapsed Lines
Your lines may become broken or collapsed due to root intrusion, excessive sediment, blockages, or general wear and tear. If you found yourself with clogs, back-ups, or lush spots all over your lawn, call for sewer inspection, since these are all signs you have a collapsed line on your hands.
Foreign Objects Blocking Lines
When everything from toys to rodents to toiletries go down your drains, they can lead to major blockages in your sewer lines. Call High 5 Plumbing to identify these blockages with a video inspection, and remember, don’t flush anything down your toilet but regular toilet paper (and that includes so-called “flushable wipes,” which can easily end up stuck together, forming clogs in your sewer system.)
Broken Offset Pipe Connections
With your underground pipes, it may be easier for offset connections to break, leading to leaking wastewater and severe property damage. A sewer inspection can pinpoint this problem.
Sags or “Bellies” in Lines
Sewer line “bellies” are low areas that collect excess debris and cause blockages and back-ups. The best way to identify these sewer line sags are with a comprehensive video inspection.
