Why Should I Use Video Pipe Inspection?

July 26, 2017 in Drain Inspection

Listen, we get it. Hearing that you should do anything can result in the action of doing the opposite. If you’re going to tell me what to do then I’m going to do anything but the thing you told me to do.

But hear us out. This is about plumbing and how to keep your pipes in good health. That may not sound too exciting or even important. But it is.

Preventive Measures

Video pipe inspection is the most effective way to see possible problems you may be having with you sewer system. If you’ve been noticed any leaking, slow draining, or any weird smells, then you are probably at the point where you are thinking you should take some action. You may not be certain what it is, but you can’t wait much longer before something breaks completely.

Think of video pipe inspection as the newest and best way to inspect your pipes without the flash. This is the real deal and it is a better way to figure out what is going on with your sewer system.

How it Works?

The process starts with a certified plumbing company—that would be us—running a video line through your waste pipes. The video might extend down your branch lines—the pipes that lead from a faucet to the sewer line—or directly down the sewer line. At the end of the line is a camera that lets you see the line close-up and personal in real-time detail.

The scope will travel as near the branch lines within the house or as far as the home’s sewer ties to the municipal sewer line. The maximum of this distance is around 330 feet.

If you are doing an entire sewer line video inspection you will see a “walk-through” leading from the trap, down through the sewer line, and up to any obstructions. You will be walked through your pipes and can actually see where the problem is. This is a far cry from the days of guessing and hoping for the best. It is a faster and more efficient solution to your problem.

Fair warning, do not expect the high definition that you have become accustomed to from your flat screen t.v. While the resolution is high it is no Hollywood movie. The picture will be slightly jerky because the scope has to be manually pushed down the line by your professional plumber.

The camera unit has a transmitter and once the professional has located the blockage they will stop the camera at this point. Then the plumber will go up to ground level and wave a locating device until the device picks up the signal from the transmitter.

This will allow him to mark the spot by spray paint at the exact point of the blockage. Normally, this is where traditional plumbing companies will try to dig a sewer trench. Instead, our repairs is a much less invasive option for fixing your pipes and will allow for minimal damage and maximum efficiency.
