No Sewer is Too Big Or Too Small!
The ability to use video cameras to do line inspections in sewage has become an invaluable piece of technology in the field of plumbing. These camera are specially made of waterproof materials that can go through your sewer lines and underground pipes to give the plumber a clear picture of what is really going on down there.
How it Works
An expert plumber is trained in using these special cameras until he or she can confidently handle them with ease. Not everyone knows how to use the cameras, and they are definitely not something you can get if you are a do-it-yourselfer.
After being trained, the skilled plumber will insert a high-resolution video camera attached to a flexible rod into a pipe as little as 2 inches but up to 36 inches in diameter and this camera is used by the plumber to see exactly what is going on with your plumbing.
The flexible rod lets the camera travel through the pipe and turn when corners come up, giving a 360-degree view of everything that is in your pipes. With real-time video image transmissions, your plumber can tell the condition of your pipe and determine what problems are happening currently or may be in the process. The images can then be deleted or saved, depending on what the need is.
Benefits of Sewer and Video Line Detection
Sewer inspections conducted via video camera detection are thorough, since the usage of the flexible rod allows visual access to otherwise hard to reach tough places that may not have been inspected otherwise.
Your plumber can confidently diagnose problems once they have reviewed the images. These images capture everything from the depth and distance from the surface of any obstructions, allowing for precision, exact correction. This saves you money, since there is no guesswork going on that may take more of the plumber’s time.
Just about any problem can be identified with the use of these special video cameras. Getting a regular inspection of your plumbing with sewer and line video detection is highly recommended by professionals. Dangerous obstacles like root intrusion and broken pipe, grease buildup, and leaks can be caught before they become serious issues that cause more damage.
Other reasons why you should call a plumber to inspect your sewage with a video camera include repeated drain line backups or clogs and slow drains. Inspections before you decide to purchase a house are also smart ideas to keep you from having unexpected sewage issues soon after you buy your new home.
