When you think of all the sights that you’d like to see in this world, we’re willing to be that “the inside of drain and sewer lines” is not going to up near the top of the list. Frankly, if that were your answer, we’d be a bit concerned. And we’re plumbers! Just because it’s not exactly a beautiful bit of scenery doesn’t mean that there is no reason to take a good look around those areas, though.
There are a few different ways in which looking within these pipes can benefit you, provided that it’s trained professionals that are on the other end of the scene. Schedule your video pipe inspection in Las Vegas with us, and you’ll reap every benefit that there is to be had. Remember, knowledge is the best tool for combating problems of any kind, and this unique service is all about providing firsthand visual knowledge! Contact us with any questions that you may have.
How Do You Inspect the Inside of Pipes? X-Rays?
No, no, no. Nothing that complicated. We don’t look through the pipes, we look into the pipes. And with today’s video camera technology, that is easier to do than ever before. Basically, we just use a very small camera that is affixed to a flexible rod to inspect the interior spaces of your pipes.
Depending on the location of the suspect problem, we may feed this rod into a drain itself, or into an access point in the plumbing system. This will require some sleuthing on our part, because we certainly don’t ever intend on wasting our clients’ time. So we’ll get an idea of what the problem may be and where it might be located, and move on from there.
But What Is This Going to Accomplish?
There are a lot of different reasons why we may advise a video pipe inspection to any given client. You may think that problems with pipes are pretty obvious, but that’s really only the case once the problem has had enough time to present obvious symptoms. Our goal is to get out ahead of serious problems, and video pipe inspection is a great tool in achieving this goal.
We can look at the extent of clogs, for instance, as well as what is leading to those clogs. We can assess the effectiveness of any drain or sewer cleaning services that we’ve provided, and we can also look for any problem areas that might lead to leaks down the line. Not only that, but we can also look for issues like tree root infiltration that can cause both leaks and clogs. Basically, we’ll look for anything at all that’s abnormal with these pipes, and we can then review that footage to make an informed decision about what needs to be done next.
A video pipe inspection is not something that you can handle on your own. The only way to make sense of what’s being seen is to have a professional assessing what’s seen. That’s why you want to work with us.
