Drain Camera Inspections
One of the biggest advances in Plumbing Technology is the drain camera. Plumbing Drain Cameras are perfect for both regular inspections or finding out exactly where and what the problem is when there is a clog or blockage. This is a valuable advancement is the ability to inspect drain pipes. We can even search for lost valuables such as jewelry. This non-destructive testing method is invaluable, particularly for older homes and buildings that have drain pipes made of cast iron or vitrified clay. Video Drain Inspection makes Drain Cleaning and Unclogging Drains much easier and faster. The plumber and property owner or manager are able to see (on a high-resolution video screen) what is going on inside the drainage pipes, and exactly what the problem is without the guesswork of the past.
Video inspection allows plumbers to see inside the pipes and thereby determine the best method of eliminating blockages. Drain inspection cameras are elaborate devices that include lights, swivelling camera heads and sometimes even lasers to accurately measure distances within drain pipes.
At Clearly Plumbing, we have the latest in drain and plumbing video technology available so that we can quickly identify your problem and fix it, saving time and money. Video inspection isn’t cheap, as the equipment costs thousands of dollars, but the results justify the expense when a below-ground blockage has occurred. Referred to as a PIG, or pipeline inspection gauge,
Drain Repair done right
Using video inspection to determine the true nature of a clogged drain may save a lot of money if the blockage can be cleared with such tools as a rotating cutter instead of having to replace the entire length of the drain pipe. Also, a video inspection reveals the overall health of underground pipes and even the materials those pipes are made of. This is important as some drains have been found that consist of different types of pipe and without actually seeing it you would never know.
Whether a camera is necessary or not, the next step is to repair the drain. Clearly Plumbing will work with you to ensure that the repairs are done in a timely manner that minimizes the impact on your current plumbing and property as much as possible. We can go over the potential solutions and work with you to come up with a quote and work plan that suits your budget and causes minimal disturbance to your regular day and your property.
If the problem doesn’t require immediate repair, the customer can have a digital file of the video inspection.
