Inspections help protect customers from expensive repairs, and at Apollo Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, we are proud to offer services that are reliable for customers in the Vancouver area. Video sewer camera inspections from Apollo Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning can find the early warning signs of something that has gone amiss with your Vancouver property’s plumbing system.


Plants and tree roots are a common threat to sewer pipelines. In their constant quest for water and nutrients, tree roots can become entangled around sewer pipes and can even invade pipes completely, impeding their flow. Eventually, overgrown root systems can cause major plumbing issues, such as pipe backups or even burst pipes that would require extensive fixes.

Backed-up or collapsed pipes can become a nightmare for property owners. Either scenario can result in catastrophic and costly property damage that leads to a lengthy repair process. While some insurance policies do cover cleanup and restoration, it’s rare for them to pay to replace and repair the water main line or damaged property.

Businesses especially have a lot riding on the health of their sewage system. Not only do business owners want to avoid the budget hit that comes with sewer repairs, they want to retain customers. Nobody wants the lingering odors or reputation associated with a sewer line problem. With our professionals, we help avoid these problems through conducting careful inspections and leak detection services that ensure that we find any and all problems within your sewer and water pipes.


At Apollo Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, we use sewer camera inspections as a non-destructive way to determine the source of sewer line problems without causing further damage to the pipe network. Our procedure involves a small camera that’s attached to a flexible fiber-optic cable. As your inspector guides the camera cable through the pipe, you will be able to view the live feed in real time on a monitor.

The inspector will go slowly, carefully noting any problem areas along the way. The goal of a pipe inspection is to create a list of immediate threats, as well as future problem areas that may emerge. This gives us a clear record of what to prioritize for our current visit as well as future ones if you schedule maintenance and check up appointments with our team.

At the end of the inspection, we will go over the results with you. If the inspection revealed any immediate threats, we’ll also recommend the best course of action for resolving those problems. On request, we’ll provide a copy of the video inspection to provide proof of the damage to an insurance company.
