A video pipe inspection allows for a real-time visual plumbing inspection of underground plumbing and sewer lines to determine the condition inside the pipe. A strong, flexible fiber optic cable with a high-resolution video camera is inserted into the plumbing or sewer line for detailed inspection.
As the cable pushes through the plumbing, a high resolution, waterproof camera equipped with powerful lights records its findings in great detail. The live video is transmitted to the plumbing technician who makes an informed plumbing diagnosis of any problems found. The video pipe inspection is saved for a permanent record.
Our high-resolution video cameras identify pipe damage and obstructions that inhibit proper water flow or create occasional backups. The specially designed plumbing camera verifies that obstructions have been eliminated and that the water and sewer lines are clean following plumbing service. The true condition of a pipe typically cannot be determined without a visual video plumbing inspection using an in-line high-resolution camera.
Camera Inspections pinpoint plumbing problems like:
Broken, cracked or collapsed pipe and sewer lines – damaged pipes requiring repair or replacement.
Corrosion – water pipe that has deteriorated and/or broken, causing sections to collapse and restrict water flow.
Bellied pipe – sections of the water pipe that have sunk due to ground or soil conditions, creating a valley that collects paper and waste.
Leaking water pipe joints – seals between pipes that have broken, allowing water to escape into the area surrounding the water line.
Root infiltration – tree or shrub roots that have invaded the sewer line, preventing normal cleaning and/or roots have damaged the water pipe.
Off-grade pipe – existing pipes of substandard or outdated plumbing material that deteriorate and corrode over time.
