If you own a home, commercial property, or industrial building than you know exactly how important it is for the plumbing system to be working properly. However, there are a great deal of issues that can occur. Some of these issues are small and easy to deal with, while others are major and will cost a great deal of money and time to have fixed. If you are currently experiencing plumbing related issues the question that remains is what exactly is going on inside those pipes?

Since the water and sewer pipes are buried underground and within the ceilings, floors, and walls of the interior structure, it can be incredibly difficult to both diagnose and pinpoint the problem. In the old days the only way to find and fix issues with the water and sewer pipes was to actually expose the pipes. That meant ripping apart ceilings, floors, and walls inside the building, and excavating the ground outside of the building. As you can well imagine it not only create a mess, but an expensive and time-consuming mess at that.

The good news is that we are now a society that puts technology at the forefront, and thanks to technology sewer pipe video camera inspection can locate and diagnose the problem. That means if your pipes need to be repaired, it will only result in minimal damage. So how does a sewer pipe video camera inspection actually work? As incredible as the process is, it’s also fairly simple. A technician will insert a tiny video camera into the plumbing system. The camera is attached to a flexible cable. The technician feeds the cable through the pipes.

As the video camera makes its way through the pipes it records the footage, and broadcasts the footage back to the technician in real time. The technician is able to see the exact condition of the pipes in high definition. If there are any clogs, cracks in the pipes, or broken pipes, the camera has the ability to detect and pinpoint the exact area where the problem is happening. Often times the camera will detect minor issues, such as the buildup of materials on the pipe walls, that can be taken care of with a simple hydro jetting service.

Other times the camera will discover major issues such as breaks, cracks, or leaks in the pipes that require an immediate repair. If you are lucky, the video camera will discover that the pipes are in great shape, and you do not need to do anything at this time. Many smart property owners will schedule a sewer pipe video camera inspection on a yearly basis as part of their overall property maintenance plan. That way any minor issues will be discovered before they turn into major issues.
