How Does Video Pipe Inspection Work?
You’ve probably heard and seen what’s known as a "snake": a long, cable–like tool that a professional plumber uses to clean pipes and clear clogs. Snakes, also known as augers, are durable yet flexible enough to bend and curve so that they can "snake" their way down to the deepest recesses of your plumbing system. Plumbing snakes have become very versatile tools. Their design is used for hydro jetting and when it comes to video inspection, they are used with fiber optic equipment to relay back, in real time, video and pictures of the inside of your piping.
Just as a plumber will lower an auger into your plumbing system from an access point like a sink or tub, he/she will do so with the fiber optic cable. At the end of the cable is a small video camera, although these cameras are so sophisticated that it may not even look like a camera. As the camera and cable are snaked down into your plumbing system, a plumbing expert on our team will watch a computer screen by which he/she can see in high resolution exactly what’s happening in your pipe and diagnose the problem and its location.
What Kinds of Plumbing Issues Does Video Inspection Work Best For?
Video inspection can be applied to a number of plumbing needs, but here are the top three plumbing situations in which plumbing camera inspection can save you time, money and the aggravation of a dug–up yard:
- Sewer/septic or water line issues – there are two sides to your home’s plumbing system: the supply side and the return side. The supply side starts with your home’s main water line, and the return side ends with your sewer or septic line. Both your water line and your sewer line are buried deep in your yard, making it impossible to visually detect problems unless the line is dug up – but not when our experts perform an inspection via a plumbing camera.
- Slab leaks – pipes encased in a slab can be notoriously difficult to work on. However, when you have the benefit of video inspection services from one of our experts, we’ll be able to pinpoint the exact location of a problem without an issue.
- Problems located deep in your plumbing system – if you have dealt with a clog that keeps recurring in the same piping, odds are there is a problem much further down the pipe. With a clear picture from a video pipe camera, your Roadrunner Air Conditioning, Heating & Plumbing expert will be able to see exactly what the cause is.
