Saving Money with Video Inspections

Home » Saving Money with Video Inspections

Technology has touched almost all industries and plumbing is no exception. If you are experiencing a persistent drain problem, it may be a good time to consider a video drain inspection before the problem becomes bigger. Today, we have video cameras that can examine your pipes and drains from the inside to inspect for any blockages, much like during microscopic surgeries in a hospital.

Sometimes drain problems are not the result of blockages, but rather, excessive rain, damaged pipes, or other reasons. There are numerous reasons why you may be experiencing slow drainage or blockages, and these problems are much more easily identifiable with video inspections. If tree roots, for example, have penetrated your underground lines, it will help you to know where to dig to access the problem, as well as give you an idea of the extent of the damage, so you can be prepared for further resolution.

While there are some personal cameras on the market for consumers, it is more advisable to hire an expert; someone who is trained to look for things you may not see. Professionally trained technicians can use industrial cameras, which can view and record across a wide depth range, covering all the pipes you need to keep maintained or repaired.

In addition to persistent or repeated drain blockages, you may want to have your lines examined prior to adding any additional parts to your home or building, such as bathrooms or kitchens. These video inspections give you an overall look at the situation and are a great resource when you tackle your next project.

Rather than the costly guesswork of trying to determine where to dig for a plumbing or renovation project, consider hiring a qualified, licensed professional to do a video inspection. If not, trying to figure out the best way to handle these situations can end up costing you more in the long run. Don’t wait for the problem to grow. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.
