How Video Pipe Inspection Helps Maintain Your Plumbing Maintaining your home’s plumbing system can go a long way. How often do you think about the collection of water and sewer pipes inside your walls? The network of pipes deliver hot and cold water and eliminate your waste on demand. Giving your plumbing system regular attention can prolong its life, prevent leaks, and avoid costly repairs. Video pipe inspections are part of the attention your system needs to help maintain its healthy lifespan. What is Video Pipe Inspection? A video pipe inspection is when a long cable with a small camera on the end is inserted into your plumbing system. The camera has motorized wheels which allow the technician to drive it through your plumbing system and inspect it from the inside. This method is the best way to examine pipes for any problems without tearing up the house to look for the pipes from the outside. Benefits of Video Pipe Inspections The radio transmitters on the camera send back location signals on the receiver to eliminate the guesswork. By running a camera through the pipelines, most plumbing problems can be detected quickly and easily. This includes potential problems that can be addressed before they turn into disastrous situations. Once all pipes have been video-inspected, they can be restored to like-new condition. Problems Detected with a Video Inspection Leaking pipes Damaged or deteriorating pipes Collapsed or misaligned pipes Clogged or blocked pipes Tree root intrusion Why Have a Video Inspection Annually? Unless pipes have a significant amount of damage, most plumbing problems cannot be detected without a thorough inspection. Most plumbing problems won’t be recognized until after water damage has been done. That’s why having a video inspection of your pipes at least once a year is recommended.
