The Benefits of Video Inspections of Your Plumbing

Video inspections have been one of the major advancements in the plumbing industry. They allow plumbing professionals to look inside sewer lines and pipes in a non-invasive way which can significantly reduce costs and efficiently locate potential issues and problems.

There are numerous benefits to using video inspections when you have a plumbing problem. These include:

  • Easier to determine blockages: Drains can be clogged by the accumulation of debris including grease and soap scum or by foreign objects becoming lodged in the pipes. Video inspections can be an ideal way to determine the location of a blockage and enable the plumbing professional to decide an appropriate course of action, without the cost of digging up pipework. The equipment usually contains a transmitter which can pinpoint the exact location of the blockage at street level, reducing the cost and time needed to rectify the problem.
  • Assessing damage: Clogs and blockages are not the only cause of slow draining water. There may also be corrosion or other forms of damage to your pipes or sewer lines. In the past determining whether any damage was present was a long winded and costly process. Video inspections allow a technician to assess the condition of the sewer lines and locate any areas of damage.
  • Preventative measures of maintenance: Video inspections also allow technicians to locate any minor issues which could develop into a major problem over time. This can allow homeowners the opportunity of preventative maintenance which can reduce repair costs and inconvenience later. For example a minor crack can easily be repaired before it develops into a full break, which would require significant work and incur a large repair bill.
