Sewer Camera Inspection & Video Inspection Services in Durham NC
Not all plumbing issues are detectible just by observing the situation. Many technologies are available now to not only make the plumber’s job easier, but also much more effective at locating a problem. We at Acme Plumbing Co. offer sewer video camera services to quickly and efficiently diagnose a plumbing issue.
Why Use Video Camera Technology?
Video cameras are becoming part and parcel in the plumbing trade. Acme Plumbing Co. has embraced much of that state-of-the-art technology to help us with our tasks. There are specifically made video inspection tools and cameras available, just for plumbers to inspect sewer lines, pipes, the foundation, and other hard-to-spot places. Because these devices are so easy to use and are flexible, they can provide a full scope of the problem.
What Happens in a Sewer Camera Inspection?
These specialized waterproof cameras allow plumbers to get a closer look at your sewer system, and the inspection is typically a relatively straightforward procedure:
- The video camera, fitted to the tip of a flexible rod, is inserted into the pipe.
- The camera is fed through the pipe, and the plumber can track its progress through a video feed through a connected monitor.
- The rod is also fitted with bright LED lights to completely illuminate the pipe in order to reveal any cracks, clogs, or other potential issues.
- The camera also includes a radio transmitter, which will mark the exact location of cracks, breaks, or clogs when they’re discovered.
- The feed can also be recorded for later use to allow the plumber to play back and more precisely analyze the issues and come back with the most cost-effective and efficient solution to your problem.
Here are some of the other advantages to using sewer video inspection:
- Takes away the guesswork—inspections are more precise
- Can look deep inside of the pipeline
- Can identify the full scope of the problem, including leaks, buildup, and clogs
- Locate any lost items that might have fallen down the drain
