What Budget Drainage offers you is the opportunity to save both time and money by choosing a cost-effective solution to any issues you may have with your sewer line.

By choosing the experienced team at Budget Drainage, you can ensure that you will get the video camera inspection that best serves you, your sewer line, and your home.


Before we send the camera into your pipe, we first send down a snake, to ensure that the camera can get through. Next, we send down the camera. The camera itself is video lens that is placed at the end of a cable. This allows the video camera to navigate through the sewer line, inspecting the nooks and crannies of your system.

The video camera can travel quite a distance through your sewer line, up to about 200 ft., allowing us to explore your sewer line thoroughly in search of any potential issues.


First and foremost, this depends on the severity of any issues that are found in your sewer line by the video camera. There are several possible outcomes for several possible problems, including:

  • Pipe joint offset: this is caused by shifted ground and can be resolved by lining or replacing the pipe
  • Tree roots: possible solutions include scraping away the tree roots, fixing the pipe, or removal of the tree
  • Corrosion: replacing or repairing the pipe
