Video pipeline inspection involves the use of long, tiny cameras that feed into the drains and help your plumber to determine the exact location of leaks. If you haven’t had a pipeline inspection yet, we encourage you to do so. The relatively low cost of inspection is highly preferable to the cost of a major pipe replacement or repair. Find out below why you should schedule an inspection today!
For older pipes, camera inspection can prevent a huge mess
We don’t have to tell you why a sewer line leak would be so unpleasant. Older pipes are susceptible to natural corrosion, so regular pipeline inspections are a must for any pipes that are a few decades old.
Leaks can occur even in newer pipes
You should also know that even newer pipes are capable of developing issues. You should consider getting annual inspections for your pipes if you have a lot of tree roots on the property (since tree root infiltration is a common source of leaks) or if you have had problems with leaking in the past. Construction nearby and other ground movement could also affect the condition of the pipes, so it’s a good idea to schedule an inspection after any such major event.
Not all plumbers use video pipe inspection
It’s important to note that there are a lot of different tools available for pipeline inspection, but none of these are quite as effective as the video camera inspection. Listening equipment and some other devices can help a plumber to pinpoint leaks as well. But a video pipe inspection allows a plumber to get a closer look at the pipes in order to determine whether the pipes are leaking or if additional piping is at risk for a leak. Ask your contractor before scheduling an appointment whether the plumbers rely on video camera inspection.
