If you suspect your line is broken, damaged or has an object in the line that could require removing the line itself, the best option is to first run a Camera
to get a full color picture of the inside of your line. This will give you exact knowledge of the problem and location of that problem.
A Camera is also typically run for home inspections. If you are considering buying a home built before 1980, it's a VERY good idea to have a video inspection of your sewer line as it can save you thousands of dollars. Time and time again we have seen people buy homes without a sewer inspection only to be stuck with thousands of dollars of excavation cost to replace their sewer line. Know before you buy.
