While it is true that plumbers utilize tools and techniques that have stood the test of time, the plumbing industry is not left out in the development of new technology. This is the case with the video camera pipe inspection. A video camera pipe inspection uses a small, high-resolution waterproof video camera attached to a flexible fiber optic cable that is advanced through drains and sewer pipe. The image the camera views is displayed on a monitor, providing a Tioga Construction plumber in Bedford with a live view of the pipe.
From the monitor, our plumber in Bedford is able to view the pipe’s condition, the presence of clogs including their identification, or other problems that may be affecting the drain or sewer pipe. With the issue identified, our licensed and experienced plumbers can determine the most efficient and effective means of resolving the problem.
The advantages of providing a video camera pipe inspection are significant, a few of them include:
The ability to identify the nature of a clog, pipe damage, pipe material and the condition of drains or sewer pipe, the latter is especially useful when the pipe involved is older pipes.
Provides the precise location of the clog, or the area requiring repair.
Provides the ability to inspect new pipes and sewer systems.
Enables the plumber in Bedford to identify issues before damage occurs.
Provides the ability for nondestructive inspection of pipes and drains beneath slab foundations, drives, patios, garages or other structures and underground locations.
The video camera pipe inspection identifies a broad range of problems, including:
- Deteriorated pipe in poor condition related to age or corrosion. Corroded or deteriorated pipe may be broken, blocked, or collapsed.
- Bellied pipe occurs when soil sinks, creating a swag in the pipe where a blockage can form.
- Blockage may be caused by the buildup of grease, tree roots, or other causes. Video camera pipe inspection provides a clear identification of the blockage. For example, when the pipe inspection reveals a clog as stubborn grease, the plumber in Bedford will choose water jetting to clear the clog and clean the pipe. No other treatment can completely clear a grease clog.
- Damaged pipe is cracked, broken, or collapsed.
- Leaking joints occur when the seals between pipe sections have failed, allowing leakage to escape the pipe and into the surrounding environment.
- Offset pipe occurs when sections of pipe are no longer aligned due to shifting soil, or other causes. Offset pipe can allow leakage to occur.
- Root infiltration into the sewer pipe causes blockage and/or damage to the pipe.
When to Schedule Video Camera Pipe Inspection
When you experience slow drains, reoccurring clogs or sewer backup, a video pipe inspection will accurately identify the cause, and the location inside your plumbing in Bedford. Once identified, the plumber will be able to determine the preferred solution to resolve it.
In addition, pooling water, or unnaturally lush, green grass over, or near the sewer pipe may indicate a sewer pipe leak.
