Benefits of a Sewer Drain Camera Inspection
If you’re experiencing slow drains or multiple clogs in your Mississauga home or if you’re preparing to purchase a home, you should consider hiring a professional to inspect the main sewer line. Here are a few reasons why:
- Prevents Damage: If your home is over 50 years old, or if you’re purchasing a home, a camera inspection of the sewer can safeguard you against damage in the future. With our high definition cameras, we can identify potential problems that may blossom into expensive problems to fix down the road.
- Identifies Issues More Quickly: The first step in figuring out how to repair a sewer or drain problem is to find out the root cause. By draining the sewer line and using our advanced cameras, we quickly determine what the problem is and can formulate a way to deal with it.
- No Digging: If you’re worried about a crew coming in to excavate your well-manicured lawn to find a problem in the sewer system, you can rest easy, because our sewer drain camera inspection is minimally invasive and doesn’t require digging up the lawn or tearing through walls.
- Saves Money: Many companies charge by the hour, which means the longer they take to identify a problem in your home’s plumbing system, the more money will come out of your pocket. Our sewer camera inspection finds problems more quickly than any other method allowing you to save money.

Signs You Need a Sewer Camera Inspection
At Sewer Squad Plumbing & Drain Services, we believe in getting the job right the first time. The last thing you need is for someone to ‘fix’ a problem, only to have it come back in a few months. That’s why we rely heavily on sewer camera inspections because of how quickly they give us a detailed look at the problem so we know exactly how to fix it. Whether you have a slow drain or full-blown backup, our cameras pinpoint the problem right away. You may want to request a sewer camera inspection if you notice any of the following:
- Foul Odours: The odour of sewer gas coming out of the drains is never a good sign. It could be a clog that’s forming causing the odours to flow back up the drain.
- Slow Drains: If you’ve tried other methods to get your drains to run smoothly again with no luck, a camera inspection will tell you why.
- Rise in Water Bill: If you’ve lived in your home for a few years, you know roughly what to expect every month when you get your water bill. If you notice your bill rising and you’ve not changed your usage habits, it could be a leak in the line. A sewer camera inspection will show if this is the issue.
- Water Main Problems: If the city calls you and says that you have a problem with your main water line, you don’t have much time to fix it. Our sewer camera inspection quickly identifies the problem so you can affect repairs as soon as possible.

How a Sewer Camera Inspection Works
Sewer repair and replacement can be a true nightmare for a homeowner. It’s expensive, intrusive, and you never know what a contractor may find once the line is excavated. Back in the day, the only way to find out what condition the sewer line was in was to dig; however today that’s not the case.
Thanks to modern camera technology, a contractor can inspect your sewer line with a high definition camera to pinpoint exactly where the damage is and figure out the best way to fix it.
The plumber uses a specialized fiber-optic camera that’s affixed to a flexible metal cable. The plumber feeds the cable into the sewer opening and controls its movements with a controller. The cable connects the camera to a closed-circuit display, which allows the technician to see the inside of the sewer in great detail.
The most significant advantages of sewer camera inspections are that they save time and money, and allow the plumber to spot the problem more quickly.
