Drain cleaning is one of the most common issues to face a plumber, and over the years, technology and methods here have advanced. What was once a very rudimentary process is now more precise and detailed, and processes can last longer and be more effective in the long run.
One of the key updates that’s helped this progression along is a video camera inspection of the drain, a technology we utilize regularly at Expert Plumbing. What is this service, and how can it benefit drain maintenance for you? Here’s a look.
During a video camera inspection of your drains, we place a small video camera inside your drain, mounted on a wheeled base. This base can be manipulated from a control panel, like a remote-controlled toy car. As the camera is guided through the pipes, it relays back images to a screen.
Through this inspection format, much more detail is possible than with any such format in the past. Even the toughest areas can be viewed, and tough-to-reach clogs can be properly identified and repaired. Full-scale excavations that may have had to take place in the past due to a hidden clog are now a total non-concern.
