But, what does each service help identify?

Camera Inspection

  • General condition of drain lines 
  • Leaking pipe joints
  • Grease buildup
  • Blockages
  • Root intrusions
  • Bellies
  • Significant cracks/holes
  • Offsets
  • Deterioration
  • Construction defects

Drain Pipe Tracing/Locating

  • Determine exact location of the sewer drain lines, manhole(s), cleanout(s), city tap, storm drain lines, and more…

Smoke Test

  • Odor – Locate where sewer smells are emitting into the affected area by identifying holes/cracks, blockages, back-ups, maintenance defects, improper construction/repairs and more…
  • Pests – Locate difficult to find drain entries of rodents/insects to properly repair and stop pests

Sewer Leak Detection (Hydrostatic/Isolation Testing)

  • Hydrostatic testing: determining if the system is leaking in piping/fittings
  • Leak isolation testing: identifying a more precise section of compromised piping/fittings by isolating the system into test sections and viewing with camera

Mechanical Cleaning and Hydro-Jetting

  • Effectiveness on Solid Blockages: Mechanical pipe cleaning is particularly effective at removing solid blockages, such as tree roots or hard sediment build-up, by physically cutting through or breaking up the obstruction within the pipe.
  • Minimal Water Usage: Unlike hydro-jetting, mechanical cleaning doesn’t require large volumes of water, making it a more suitable option in situations where water usage needs to be minimized or conserved.
  • Thorough Cleaning: Hydro-jetting not only clears blockages but also cleans the inner walls of pipes by removing grease, minerals, and other debris that adhere to the pipe walls. This helps in maintaining a smooth flow and can prevent future blockages.
  • Environmentally Friendly: Hydro-jetting uses only water to clean and clear pipes, without the need for harsh chemicals. This makes it a more environmentally friendly option for pipe maintenance and cleaning.


Sleuth Inc. is Florida’s pioneer leak detection company, having been in business over 40 years. Unlike most of our larger competitors, we do not franchise, because we believe leak detection is an art not a science. We put our technicians through rigorous training, working full time for 6-12 months with a veteran technician before getting a chance at completing jobs on their own. They work directly under a mentor for a total of 3 years.
