TV Video Pipe Inspections
Back before today’s modern technology, finding the source of a plumbing problem was very difficult. Plumbers would give their best guess about the source of the problem, and then cut into walls or dig up the yard. Sometimes they were wrong.
Fortunately, today, we can use video to inspect your pipes. It is cheaper and more accurate than exploratory digging. It is also damage-free. While we may still have to cut into a wall or dig up an area of your yard after the diagnosis, the diagnosis does not involve anything damaging. Plus, by locating the problem beforehand, we can minimize the damage done while we are fixing things.
How Does It Work?
The camera transmits to a CCTV system. A CCTV system is closed circuit television. That means that our TVs are only picking up signals from our devices. Our pipes are flexible and small, allowing us to inspect smaller plumbing lines, as well.
Once we finish with our inspection, we give you a report of the problem. The great thing is that you do not have to take our word for it. We can show you on the video what and where the problem is.
Once we diagnose the issue, we can discuss potential solutions. Modern plumbing is much less destructive than it used to be. We can often replace pipes without the serious damage that it would have required in the past. There may also be more than one solution. In those cases, we discuss all of your options so that you can make an informed decision.
If you have a plumbing problem that you cannot diagnose, give us a call. We can use our video cameras to go into hidden spaces, find the problem, and come up with the solution.
