Solving a Plumbing Problem Using In-Line Video Inspections
In-line video pipe inspections are one of the best solutions for home plumbing systems. An in-line video pipe inspection can be helpful in solving a variety of plumbing problems. For example, by using this technology a plumber can find the location of blockage in a pipe. A plumber can also find corrosion, cracks and leaks in a pipe as well as areas that have collapsed. A professional can also determine when a pipe has sunk into the ground, or bellied, due to changing conditions of the ground. This equipment is also useful in inspecting drain lines. With an in-line video pipe inspection, a plumber literally gets a clear picture of what is going on inside a pipe so he can determine the proper way to repair it. Our technicians are ready to perform these services for your home today!
What Are The Benefits Of Using In-Line Video Pipe Inspection Services?
We have firsthand knowledge of the many benefits of this plumbing technology. One major benefit is that in-line video pipe inspections don’t cause any harm to pipes. It's only purpose is to reveal any existing problems on the inside of a pipe. Another benefit is that it makes a video record of what a plumber sees. This video can be used as proof of substandard quality pipes or pipes that were installed improperly. In-line video pipe inspection also allows a plumber to avoid taking lines of pipe apart to find blockage or determine the cause of a problem. Without this new technology, a plumber would have to dismantle a set of pipes to determine the cause of slow-moving water or stoppage. In addition, once a clog has been removed or a repair services have been performed, a plumber can take one last look at the interior of the pipe to see that everything is positioned properly.
How Are In-Line Video Inspections Performed?
An in-line video pipe inspection is done with a long, flexible cable that has a tiny video camera embedded in its tip. The plumber puts the cable into a pipe and watches its progress via a monitor. The small camera on the cable is waterproof so it can withstand the moist conditions in the interior of a pipe. It also has lights on it that allow a plumber to see into the narrow space of a pipe. As the camera on the cable travels through a pipe, it can make a video record of what the plumber is seeing.
What Can A Video Inspection Find?
Video inspections are good for doing all kinds of things including, but not limited to, the following:
Drain Line Inspections
Lift Station Inspections
Identify build up, cracks, bellies, breaks, root intrusion, separated joints, and deteriorating materials
Determine location of lines or damage
What Is Done After In-Line Video Pipe Inspections Are Performed?
If the video inspection shows root intrusion our technicians can apply RootX to remove the roots and allow your pipes to flow freely again. If the inside of the pipe has degraded but the outside is still serviceable, we will line the pipes with an epoxy extending their useful life. Video inspections allow us to pinpoint the location of whatever problem your pipes are experiencing meaning that the repair work will be less intrusive and more efficient.
