Get a Plumbing Video Inspection before Buying a Home Phot Credit via Pixabay.com / Pixabay When purchasing a new home, you can never have too many inspections. Investing in a plumbing video inspection before you purchase a home will help ensure that sewer lines are free of problems. A sewage backup is one problem that can quickly and completely destroy the value of your home. A common mistake made by new homeowners is calling a plumber after the home is purchased. You need to know the existing condition of the plumbing system. The most effective way to do this is to order a plumbing video inspection. Why Invest in a Plumbing Video Inspection? A video inspection can and will identify all types of problems. It can determine the condition of the plumbing and water system on the property you’re purchasing. It can quickly locate a blockage or backup in the plumbing system. A plumbing video inspection is also the only way to identify underground pipes that may be misaligned or damaged by corrosion or tree roots. A video inspection can also diagnose grease buildup, leaks, and other obstructions. It is recommended to have this analysis repeated after any plumbing service is performed to verify that the pipeline has been properly cleaned or repaired. Video cameras can also locate lost jewelry and other values that have been lost in pipes. How does a Plumbing Video Inspection Work? A professionally-trained and skilled technician at Restoration Experts inserts a flexible rod with a high-resolution video camera on its tip into pipes from two inches to thirty-six inches in diameter. The flexible rod allows the camera to travel through the pipe and around the corners to see the entire pipe. Real-time video image transmission allows our technician to determine the condition of the inside of the pipe. We will be able to understand any existing problems the plumbing system has had and any potential problems it may have. The images can and will be saved for your permanent records. This service does not require digging on the property, opening walls to access water lines, or damaging existing pipes. We can perform a thorough inspection of any plumbing system with the use of a specialized video camera. A sewer system blockage can cause damages to your heating system, sheetrock, flooring, and personal items. If a blockage is present in your sewage system, eventually an unwanted smell will fill your home. Let’s investigate your pipes before a problem occurs!
