Sewer and Drain Video Inspection
Getting to the “root” of the problem!
Drains have always presented challenges for plumbers. As a result of corrosion, shifting foundations, and concrete cracking, drains have been damaged, causing them to have inhibited flow, and leakage into unwanted areas. Even tree roots can infiltrate older pipe fitting junctions and damaged areas, and become unruly growths in pipelines. Among the potentially disastrous conditions, are clogged pipes causing a backup of household drains in kitchen or bathrooms. Another is the excess water and sewage seeping into the ground or into concrete slabs, causing large areas to become soaked, unstable, and subject to bacteria and odors.
A problem with drains may be minor, and easily accessible. On the other hand, a drain issue may require major work in concrete foundations, and require days of work and thousands of dollars. To help control costs, it is important to be able to determine exact locations of problems in drains, and be able to inspect the pipes to assess the repair requirements. Upon inspection, your plumber can determine what work is needed, and therefore accurately quote the costs to do the job.
Sewer and drain inspection became revolutionized with the advent of “Drain Cameras.” These handy devices allow plumbers to literally see inside the pipelines, and video record what they find. This information gives them the perfect way to show homeowners the nature of the problem, and an easier way to convey what repair is needed.
South County Plumbing provides this service, using a state-of-the-art drain camera and recording system made by “Ridgid,” which is touted the “tank” of drain cameras. It is very reliable, delivering accurate video representation of drain inspection. Giving an inch-by-inch viewing of the insides the pipe itself, it is easy to vividly see the issues close up. Added to this is an option to record the actual viewing itself so that the client has a record of the problem that is being addressed, presented to them on DVD, which can be viewed on any standard home DVD player.
…just the kind of equipment you’d expect from the best plumbing service technicians available!
