Video cameras are a bigger part of our lives than ever before. Not too long ago, you need to put film in a camera in order to shoot video—okay, not too long ago relatively speaking. Then came the cassette video cameras that you could shoot 8mm video on without having to spool actual film. Digital cameras were not too far behind that. Now, we pretty much all have a video camera in our pockets, integrated into our smartphones and capable of capturing crystal clear images.
Chances are that you won’t want to shove your cell phone into a pipe or your sewer line, though.
And, if you did, you’d be probably be calling us to schedule professional plumbing repairs before long (and you’ll likely need a phone repair technician, too—good luck with that warranty!).
Why not skip the middleman and schedule a video pipe inspection in Corona, CA with The Sunny Plumber SoCal, instead? Read on to learn more.
How It Works
A video pipe inspection in quite simple in theory. We add that caveat because we in no way intend to say that it is a service you can handle on your own. If you are serious about getting good results from your video pipe inspection, you need professional plumbers of the highest caliber to handle it. Besides, it is not as though you’ll just have this type of equipment lying around.
Basically, there is a tiny video camera affixed to the end of a flexible cable. This cable is fed into drains or plumbing access points. The camera can be fed deep into the system, and it feeds live images from within the pipes back to a monitor for your plumber to review. If necessary, this video can be saved for further review.
What Are the Benefits?
There are quite a few reasons why you’d want to schedule a professional video pipe inspection. For starters, it allows us to provide visual evidence and explanation as to why we’re suggesting a given service. We obviously would never try to fleece you, but we understand that homeowners unfamiliar with certain plumbing issues can be put at ease when they have footage to look directly at when weighing their service options.
It also helps us to find problem spots in your pipes, including weak points, actual leaks, and clogs. Not only that, but it helps us to evaluate the success of the work that we’ve done. Because we cannot otherwise see into pipes, it makes it a lot easier to ascertain whether or not a truly thorough job has been done when, say, cleaning out your drains or sewer line.
If you have any questions, be sure to reach out to a member of our team today. It would be a shame to pass up the benefits of video pipe inspection just because you are not familiar with the process. Our Sunny Plumbers can give you the full rundown and they’ll help you to determine if the time is right for this innovative service.
