Video Camera Pipe Inspections and Underground Leak and Line Detection
The purpose and advantage of using a Sewer Video Camera Inspection system is to view the inside of a sewage pipe. It involves inserting a flexible cable that has a camera on the tip into the sewer pipe. The camera is waterproof and records images of the findings, which are transferred to a monitoring system and allow the plumber to visually diagnose the problem.
The Sewer Video Camera Inspection can go through branch lines within the house, as far as the point where your home’s sewer ties into the municipal sewer line or drain field/septic tank. This process makes it easier for the plumber to detect the condition of a system and easily access and repair pipes that are hard to reach.
Sewer Video Camera Systems can be used to see if there are any pipe obstructions or damage, such as cracked or collapsed pipes, blockage, leaking joints, corrosion, and root intrusion. Pipe obstructions often cause flow issues, which in turn cause repeated backups/stoppages or a loss of water, resulting in a high water bill or devastating damage to the structure of your home. A Sewer Video Camera Inspection can save you thousands of dollars in repairs.
If you are considering remodeling your bathroom or kitchen or possibly adding a bathroom to your home, a Sewer Video Camera Inspection can be used first to inspect your sewer line and determine whether or not it can handle the increased quantity of waste water that your system will be asked to handle.
In short, a Sewer Video Camera Inspection helps the plumber determine the type of repair that is needed, and whether it is a simple or more complex job. Video Camera Inspections are the least invasive and affordable way to diagnose your sewage line plumbing problem. This fast, effective, and accurate service is the ideal choice for plumbing emergencies, and can even assist in retrieving an item that has fallen down a drain, such as jewelry, by allowing the plumber to detect the exact location of the lost item.
