Drain Scope

In order to identify the conditions of your drain system, a scope would be performed by running a specialized camera through your drain lines/branches. Typically, our technician can enter from vent stack(s) located on your roof or through cleanout(s) located on your property.

• Recurring backups – A camera inspection can diagnose and locate any problem area(s) that are causing recurring backups.

• Wastewater leakage – Locate difficult to find drain system leakage (note: the camera inspection does not always visibly find small compromises and a smoke test or hydrostatic/isolation test are needed to locate these compromises).

• Renovation – Identify the direction & condition of the drain system and location(s) of drain system access for future renovations to kitchen, bath(s), laundry, pool build, etc.

What to expect of a drain camera inspection?

In certain situations, when there is a lack of entry for the camera, our technician may request to pull a toilet and run the camera down the drain line through the toilet flange. We may also request to pull a vanity/kitchen p-trap in order to access the system. Our professional techs will go above and beyond to make their work minimally invasive.

How does our inspection help you move forward? 

Sleuth technicians will diagnose, locate, and mark the areas for you with flags, tape, and/or spray paint. We find the compromises within the system and the plumbing contractor of your choice will complete the repair work.

We provide written and video reports are with this service (along with a sketch of the drain system).
