3 Advantages of Using Video Inspections Over Other Methods For Your Pipes

Written by Eric Brophy. Posted in Uncategorized

New technology has paved the way for advancements in all sorts of industries, including plumbing. Among those advancements in plumbing services are video inspections. During the process of video inspections, a video camera is inserted into a sewer line or drain while the image from the camera is projected onto a screen for plumbing contractors to view. Here are some benefits of video inspections over other types of pipe inspections.

Cost effective

There are several ways that a video inspection can save you money. First, the process takes much less time than other methods, so the job itself costs much less. Secondly, you save in landscaping costs. If you need to dig up your entire lawn to get at your pipes, you’re going to have to pay a lot to get that covered up and fixed. You might even ruin a garden you worked hard on.

Less invasive

As stated previously, video inspections don’t require you to dig up your entire yard. You can detect any problem that might be wrong with your lines without having to take huge chunks out of your lawn. You aren’t disturbing your neighbors with noisy construction, and you don’t have to get as many local permits to get the job done.

Better detection

Without a video camera, plumbers could only fix leaking pipes and clogs in areas that they could physically see. With video inspections, the contractor can see what is causing the clog or leak and repair the issue in one simple trip. It also helps you understand what is getting into your pipes.

Video inspections can diagnose problems like clogs or leaks much more efficiently than digging up your yard to find the problem. Leaky kitchen and bathroom faucets, malfunctioning toilets, errant sprinkler systems, and much more can waste 1 trillion gallons of water every year. That’s equal to the yearly household water use of more than 11 million homes, according to the EPA. By detecting water leaks in your pipes through video inspections, you can save yourself a lot on your water bill as well as preserve Mother Nature’s precious water supply.
