How Do Video Inspections Work?

A video inspection is similar to threading a needle. We carefully push a waterproof camera that is mounted on a sturdy but flexible metal line into your piping. This flexibility allows us to take a camera to some pretty amazing places whether it be around a corner or through a tight u-turn. The camera sends back a high-definition video to a monitor, which our knowledgeable plumber will look at, inspecting for issues on the inside of the pipe. If we do find a problem where the pipe has to be repaired, we know exactly where to begin. The camera end has a radio transmitter that sends a signal back up through the ground where we can find it with pinpoint accuracy.

How are Video Inspections Helpful?

Significant Interior Pipe Corrosion

From a Video Inspection, We Quickly Discover the Degraded Portion of Piping That Needs Repair.

This limits a lot of the need for digging up the entire line to see exactly where the problem is, and because we physically look inside the pipe, it lets us find problem areas that could crop up later. Before camera inspections, there was a lot of guessing involved in locating leaks and blockages. Entire yards would be dug up just to locate a single leak. With video inspections, we can quickly detect where the problem lies, so we can limit the amount of trenching needed.

If your system has any blockage or significant damage, we’ll find it quickly. This is especially useful for servicing main water and sewer lines, but it works with all sorts of pipes.
