A video pipe inspection is a modern alternative to a traditional pipe inspection. During this kind of sewer and drain inspection, a plumber passes a camera on the end of a long hose into the pipes and snakes it through your plumbing system, documenting every bit of the pipework to identify any blockages, corrosion, or other plumbing problems that need to be dealt with.
Here are four of the main benefits of scheduling a video pipe inspection with your local sewer & septic specialist for your home in Decatur, IL.
1. Fast and Efficient
Compared to traditional methods of inspection, video pipe inspection is fast and efficient. Plumbers can quickly pass the camera through your entire system to assess the status of the pipes. You don’t need to wait around while they dig up pipes or take them apart unless they find that there is some issue that needs to be dealt with right away.
Video pipe inspection is a cost-effective way of carrying out a plumbing inspection. It doesn’t take very long, which keeps labor costs low. There is no need to unearth pipes or use any specialist plumbing equipment other than the camera and hose. Video pipe inspections not only help to avoid a plumbing emergency by identifying problems before they turn into catastrophes, but they can be a great investment that pays off in the long run.
3. No Damage or Disruption
When plumbers use a camera to examine your pipes, they can pinpoint exactly where the problem lies without having to physically touch the pipes. That means, for example, that an emergency plumber can use a camera to find a break in your pipes or a place where tree roots have grown through, without needing to dig up large areas of land around your home. As a result, your lifestyle is less disrupted and less damage is done to your home and lawn.
4. Useful for Both Sewer and Septic Systems
Plumbers can use video inspections for both sewer maintenance and the maintenance of septic plumbing. These areas of a home plumbing system can be difficult to access using traditional plumbing methods.
No matter what kind of system your home uses, a video pipe inspection can be very helpful for the identification of problems, whether they are already causing noticeable plumbing issues or are future emergencies silently brewing under the surface.
