How is it that plumbers are able to diagnose problems with pipes that are hidden from view? This may not be a question that you find yourself asking with any regularity, but it does warrant some attention. Even when you spot signs of a leak, after all, the source of the leak could be very far away from the visible symptom. It is for precisely this reason that video pipe inspection in Torrance, CA is so beneficial.
When you encounter problems with your drains, or even with your sewer line, you don’t want a plumber coming into your home and tearing your property apart as he or she seeks out the source of the problem, right? Well, when your plumbers are equipped with video pipe inspection equipment — and have the skill and expertise necessary for using that equipment successfully — you need have no such concerns. Read the following information, and remember to leave the drain and sewer services to the pros on our staff.
How Does Video Pipe Inspection Work?
Video pipe inspection is — in theory, if not in practice — quite simple. Basically, our plumbers have a flexible rod setup that is easily fed into your drain and/or sewer lines. Affixed to the tip of this rod is a small video camera. That video camera is able to send a live feed of images back to a monitor that your plumber will review in real time. If necessary, it is also possible to store this video footage and images for further review. That is really all that there is to it.
Just because this task sounds pretty simple when laid out in these terms, though, doesn’t mean that the job itself is an easy one to handle. Only professional plumbers can use this equipment properly and navigate your plumbing system successfully. It is also not very beneficial to be viewing this type of footage if one doesn’t have the knowledge necessary to understand precisely what they are looking at.
What Are the Benefits of Video Pipe Inspection?
We would not be offering our valued clients this service it didn’t offer them some very tangible benefits. Using this type of equipment is very helpful in a few different scenarios. The first is in diagnosing problems with your drain or sewer system to begin with.
Just because you have a specific symptom, such as backed up or even just slow-moving drains, doesn’t mean that there is going to be a clear cut reason behind the problem. Using video pipe inspection equipment allows our plumbers to peer into your drain and sewer system in order to ascertain precisely what the issue is.
Not only that, and not only can we pinpoint the exact location of the problem’s source, but we can also use this equipment after the initial service is completed. If the job is done, why would we want to do so? Because our job is never done until it is done right. Using video pipe inspection equipment in following up on a job allows us to measure the success of the work that we’ve done, and helps us to decide if further action is needed.
