Video Pipe Inspection
A video pipe inspection allows for a real-time visual analysis of underground sewer lines and piping to determine their condition. This allows plumbing technicians to take a close look at potential problems without the trouble of digging up or unscrewing your home’s pipes.
A flexible fiber optic cable with a specially designed high-resolution video camera on its tip is inserted into the pipe for inspection. As the cable is pushed through the pipe, the hardened waterproof camera, equipped with powerful lights, records its journey and findings. Video images are transmitted to the camera operator who can make an informed diagnosis of any problem found.
Problems a Video Pipe Inspection Can Solve
- Broken, Cracked or Collapsed Pipe: Damaged pipes that require repair or replacement.
- Offset Pipe: Sewer pipes that have become misaligned.
- Blockage: Grease builds up or foreign objects get lodged in the pipe and restrict proper water flow.
- Corrosion: Sections of pipes that have deteriorated and collapsed, restricting water flow.
- Bellied Pipe: A section of the pipe that has sunk, creating a valley that collects paper and waste.
- Leaking Joints: Seals between pipes that have broken, allowing water to escape into the area surrounding the pipe.
- Root Infiltration: Tree or shrub roots that have puncture the sewer line.
- Off-Grade Pipe: Old pipes that are constructed of substandard, outdated, or deteriorated material.
