Video Inspection


Before the advent of video inspection technology, plumbing companies would have to remove, excavate, and replace large portions of piping in order to find the source of a clogged drain. Thankfully, the experts at SWAGS Plumbing and Rooter have access to innovative sewer video inspection technology to locate the obstructions in your home’s drains quickly and easily. Our video technology provides a live, real-time look into your San Jose, CA, home’s piping. Our friendly and experienced plumbers can quickly pinpoint the location of the clog and take the necessary steps to remove them. Contact our friendly and experienced local San Jose plumbers today to schedule your video inspection service.

Plumbing inspection video cameras are an emerging technology that gives our plumbers unprecedented insight into the quality of your home’s sewer line and interior drains. It is the easiest way to inspect sewer pipes, especially those that would require excavation of your lawn or foundation to repair. A small camera attached to a pushrod is used, and as our plumber works the pushrod through your drains, the camera transmits real-time video footage directly to our monitor, so the technicians can see exactly where the blockage is. It can also give us insight into the overall condition of your sewer pipes.

do i need a sewer video inspection?

Not every blockage requires a video inspection. If our plumbers are certain they know where the clog is, it may not be necessary. However, there are a number of issues that may require a video inspection service from our experienced plumbing team, including:


Tree roots can work their way into your home’s underground pipes, causing significant damage to your plumbing system. Our video inspection services will discover exactly where the roots are located for proper removal.


Extreme hot and cold weather can cause your home’s foundation to shift, which leads to broken pipes. We can quickly identify any damage to your home’s sewer pipes and make the necessary repairs.


If you own an older home, the pipes can quickly begin to deteriorate. Cast-iron is a common material that degrades, splits, cracks, and may even collapse underground. With our video inspection service, we can discover if your sewer pipes need repair or complete replacement.


Our video inspection service is just one of the tools our team uses to quickly identify and correct clogged main and sewer lines in your home. As the area’s most trusted plumbing team, you can always count on us for high-quality services completed in a timely manner. Contact our team today to schedule your video inspection.

We went shopping for our daughter’s birthday party and came home 2 hours later with the first floor flooded. I called several plumbers before I called SWAGS Plumbing and Rooter. They responded and came about one hour later. The break was inside the walls and required leak detection. Before leaving for the weekend the plumber was able to determine that it was the hot water pipe that was leaking. This provided us with at least cold water during the party and for the weekend. When they came after the weekend they were able to determine where the leak came from on their first attempt. They opened the wall and repaired the pipe expeditiously. They were very professional and meticulous when it came to their work and our home. We were updated on a regular basis on their progress. They showed us where the leak was and what actually caused it. We were so fortunate that, on our third call to a plumber, we reached SWAGS Plumbing and Rooter and that they were available within an hour to come to the rescue. I would strongly recommend SWAGS Plumbing and Rooter for any type of plumbing and rooter service.

Daniel was punctual and systematically helped diagnose the source of the leak from our upstairs bathroom. Although the root cause was not specifically found to be a plumbing issue, he was able to refer us to appropriate contacts to assist. I highly recommend this business – honesty, integrity, and value are not in short supply with them! Thanks!

We had an undetectable water leak at our home. We had one plumbing company come out, and they were not able to find the issue. I called SWAGS and they came over the same day, discovered were the leak was, and had it repaired the next day! Their response time was amazing, their service technicians were very knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommend SWAGS Plumbing! Thank you for the wonderful experience. Any other plumbing needs we will definitely call them.

Techs arrived on time to fix a leaking shower. Completed the job carefully and in a timely manner. Techs were respectful, communicated clearly, and kept their work area clean (they wore masks and plastic shoe covers). Compared to other plumbing services I’ve hired in the past, their rates were fair and reasonable. Will consider using SWAGS again.
