Plumbing issues are one of the few sure things in life. Just about everyone will experience a plumbing problem at some point, likely many times throughout their lives. When it happens to you, you want to know that you have an experienced pipelining company, like San Diego Plumbing and Pipelining, at your back. Here’s what you need to know about our sewer camera inspection services.
What Is Pipe Camera Inspection?
Pipe camera inspection, also called sewer camera inspection or drain camera inspection, involves inserting a small camera into your pipes to identify the source of a blockage or other damage. We utilize the latest technology in this area to ensure that we can continue to provide you with the best, most accurate service possible.
The tiny camera is situated at the end of a long cord, which your technician will feed into your drain so it makes its way along your pipes. We’ll be able to see in detail where the clog is located and what is causing it. This gives us the information we need to come up with a plan for repairing your pipes.
When Do You Need Sewer Camera Inspection?
Pipe camera inspection is not necessary in all cases. Most clogged pipes can be cleared relatively easily using a drain snake or hydrojet. However, these methods do have their limitations so sometimes more drastic measures are necessary. If your clogged drain cannot be cleared using these common methods, camera inspection can alert us to the problem so we can eliminate it for you.
In addition to locating blockages, drain camera inspection can also alert you to any cracks, corrosion or other damage to your pipes that you may not have been aware of previously. This is especially useful in older homes. If you find that you are experiencing plumbing issues fairly regularly, you may have a bigger problem than just a clogged pipe, and camera inspection can help identify it.
