Sewer and Drain Line Camera Inspection
Sometimes it can be difficult to diagnose a plumbing problem if the trouble lies within a hard-to-reach area. Specially made waterproof cameras have become a valuable tool contractors use to inspect pipes that are underground, encased in cement or underneath your home’s foundation. A flexible rod with one of these cameras at its tip can travel through a sewer pipe, even around corners, to see exactly what’s wrong.
The technicians at Superior Plumbing, Heating & Air-Conditioning, Inc have the right tools and training for sewer line camera inspections to homes in the Waterford, MI area. We’ll be able to find out what’s wrong with your plumbing, even if we can’t access the area by hand.
Sewer Line Camera Inspection Explained
Professionals trained to handle this equipment can insert the camera into a pipe believed to be the source of a plumbing problem. The flexible rod allows the camera to travel around corners. A live video feed of what the rod sees is sent back to the professional so they can assess the condition of the pipe and investigate the nature of the problem. Transmitters in the camera record its depth and location, so you know exactly where to conduct repairs. In the end, these devices eliminate any guesswork and allow technicians to take care of the situation quickly and efficiently. It’s also a way to save from any mess or unnecessary damage while trying to figure out what’s wrong with your plumbing.
