How Does Camera Drain Inspection Work?
We use high-end waterproof cameras to inspect sewer lines and other pipes that would otherwise be difficult to reach. For instance, using older methods, we would have to dig into the ground or get underneath a home’s foundation to identify where the blockage in the pipes was. This process was painstaking and could take hours to complete. As you can imagine, it was also quite costly.
All of these problems were solved when we were able to simply insert a camera into the drain opening and run it down the pipe until we found the problem. We stick a flexible rod with a high-resolution video camera on the tip into the pipe. The rod is small enough to fit into a pipe that is just 2 inches in diameter. The flexible rod can wind its way through any plumbing system - even at 90-degree angles. We can view the footage on a monitor. A high-resolution camera gives us clear, distinct images so that we can diagnose the problem with 100% accuracy. We can save the video or create an image to refer to once we begin cleaning the pipes out.
We Don’t Have to Guess What the Plumbing Problem Is
Even the most skilled plumber can misdiagnose a clogged drain from time to time. If a plumber tells you that there is soap and hair buildup in the main sewer drain when it’s a tree root, the error can cause devastating results to your plumbing system. Thanks to camera drain inspection, there is no guesswork. Transmitters in the camera report the precise depth and location of the blockage in the pipes.
A video camera line inspection will identify all types of plumbing issues, Some of these problems include:
- Root intrusion
- Misaligned pipe
- Broken or punctured pipe
- Kind of substances or materials blocking the drain
- Grease buildup, leaks, or other common problems
Benefits of Camera Drain Inspection
As stated above, using camera inspection equipment gives us an accurate reading of what’s going on in your plumbing system. The faster we learn what the problem is, the quicker we can fix it. Cameras also give us an idea of how serious the problem is so that we know whether to use a drain snake, water jetting system, or other means by which to clean the pipes out. Accurate and efficient service allows us to complete the job in a more efficient manner. You don’t have to wait around why we spend hours analyzing the blockage.
