Have you ever wondered what is really going on within the pipes of your plumbing system? For a long time, if there was a problem in your pipes, the only way to see inside was to excavate the whole system. Leaks, clogs and reduced water pressure were all addressed with jackhammers and damaging equipment. Fortunately, that is no longer the case – we now use camera inspection to see what is going on within your plumbing system without doing any damage. Camera inspections are helpful for diagnosing:
- Drain clogs
- Pipe damage
How Does Camera Inspection Work?
In different strategic areas in your home, there are access ports to your plumbing system. When you have a plumbing problem, one of the first tools we reach for is our drain camera. These cameras are inserted into your plumbing pipes and maneuvered by a trained technician. The video feed is transmitted back to the plumber so we are able to see the exact location and severity of the problem.
Camera Inspection Benefits
Besides the obvious benefit of less destruction while looking for the source of the problem, camera inspection also has other benefits for homeowners including:
- The ability to locate the exact location of the issue: This helps keep the repair localized and less expensive for the homeowner.
- Early problem detection: While you may have called us out for a drain clog, while using the camera we can see if your pipes are corroded, have damage or need replacing. This can catch a small problem before it becomes a major leak or repair.
- Accurate repairs: We no longer have to guess at the cause of your problem. With camera inspection, we will be able to guarantee that the work we did will fix your problem.
Don’t rip open your pipes until you are positive it is necessary. Call in the Stewart Plumbing camera inspection squad today!
