What are French Drain Camera Inspections?

A French drain camera inspection is an advanced diagnostic tool that allows our foundation waterproofing team to view the inside of your drainage system in real time. We insert a high-definition video camera into your French drain and visually inspect the entire length of the pipe. This process helps us identify the exact location and nature of any blockages, breaks, or leaks without any need for excavation.

Common Problems Identified by Camera Inspections

Camera inspections can reveal a variety of issues that can significantly impact the functionality of your drainage system. Here’s a closer look at some of the typical problems we encounter:

  • Clogged French Drains: Clogged French drains caused by roots, debris, and sediment accumulation are common issues. These materials can completely block water flow, leading to stagnant water and potential flooding. 
  • Iron Ocre: Iron ochre, a reddish-brown sediment, can clog pipes by forming thick deposits, leading to pooling around foundations. Our inspections identify this buildup and our team specializes in iron ochre removal.
  • Pipe Damage: Holes in the pipe, minor cracks that can grow over time, or entire sections of collapsed pipe due to soil shifts or above-ground pressure can all be diagnosed with French drain camera inspection.
  • Poor Installation: Improper installation of a French drain system like pipes laid at incorrect slopes or bends and turns can lead to chronic water management issues. Our inspections can identify these flaws and suggest corrective measures.
  • Connection Failures: Sometimes, the junctions where drain pipes meet can fail and can lead to leaks and reduced efficiency in water diversion. Our team can locate these issues without disturbing the surface of your property.
