With the old way of doing things, a plumber would need to excavate your yard just to locate your sewer line and inspect it. The job itself was extremely grueling, and it involved a lot of guesswork just to determine the location of a leak or clog in your sewer line. Furthermore, it was costly and time-consuming to restore your landscaping to its original appearance. Video technology, however, now allows you to bypass a lot of the digging and guesswork that the old method entails.
With camera inspections, plumbers can get a good idea of what’s going on with your home plumbing system and they can record the video footage and review it later. The cameras themselves are small and they are attached to a long and flexible cable. You insert the camera into an access point in your plumbing and from there you begin your inspection. The camera will feed the image to a monitor in real-time so that the plumber can watch as the device is navigating your system. It’s a non-invasive way to examine everything and get a better understanding of the issue that’s been plaguing your plumbing system.
Avoid Any Unnecessary Digging
Plumbers, homeowners and business operators all love camera inspections. Why? Because you avoid all the trouble and downsides of having to dig up your property to inspect your sewer line. Think about it – you can get a complete picture of what’s happening inside your plumbing system without having to create a big mess!
All your plumber needs is a small access point for the camera and the rest of the work is fairly simple. You don’t have to resort to digging up entire sections of your yard to simply access your sewer line. It’s a frustrating process that will also have your neighbors extremely upset with you. And if you think we’re exaggerating, try digging a trench in your yard and see how long it takes for one of your neighbors to walk over and find out what’s going on. (Here’s the answer: it usually happens right away.) There are also trenchless methods for repairing your sewer line.
