In the plumbing industry, video camera inspection has become standard practice. At Smiley Drain Cleaning & Plumbing, we like to make sure that quick, accurate service benefits our customers. Sewer line problems on your entire plumbing system will cause chaos. By inserting a camera attached to a long, flexible rod, video sewer line inspection enables us to quickly find out what the problem is. The benefits of video inspection include:
Know Exactly Where the Clog or Blockage is Located
A plumber will immediately find out if the problem is caused by things flushed down the toilet, hardened grease, or tree roots. Any type of blockage that can cause your drains to be slow or water to back up can be found by the camera. Knowing the precise location in the sewage line where the clog is, helps us to decide the most efficient way to extract it.
Finding Any Damage Inside Your Pipes
A plumber can see it immediately whether there’s a crack, hole, or corrosion. Repairs should be performed at the same time as the pipe is cleaned. The camera stream will indicate if a pipe is in danger of collapsing; if so, then before more expensive repairs are required, we can fix that section. It is also possible to patch up any holes that are found as well.
Quickly and Easy Leak Detection
The symptoms of a leak of water are not always so obvious. The plumbing inspection camera will find the cause and its precise location of the leak if there are visible signs of trouble. Whether behind a wall or under the slab, plumbers will measure the distance the camera has traveled to determine where it is. Otherwise, in water bills and damage, water leaks can end up costing you a lot of money.
Protecting Your Property
The only way to locate a sewer line clog traditionally was to dig up the drain. It means having to dig large holes and trenches on your lawn, killing plant life and everything else there in the process. Not knowing exactly where a clog or break is can cause landscape repairs that can cost a fortune.
Saving Money on a New Home
Plumbing Inspections are part of the process of home buying. Before making your decision, schedule a sewer line inspection if you are shopping around for a new house. Depending on the state it is in, it can cost thousands of dollars to repair the sewage system. Now, a video inspection will prevent these costs later on.
Locate and Find Valuable Lost Items
If you lost a ring or some other piece of jewelry down your drain, a plumber can still find it if it’s inside the sewer line. If it’s there, the video will show it, and the item can be retrieved with the proper equipment.
