Video pipe inspection

For drain cleaning, plumbers usually start with motorized drain augers (a.k.a. drain snakes) and hydro-jetting equipment. Video pipe inspection moves to the next level, and allows plumbers to investigate trickier issues with drain cleaning and discover what sort of damages and clogs they are dealing with, and where exactly they are located. Video pipe inspection removes the guesswork and much of the trial-and-error that were once necessary parts of drain cleaning.

Video pipe inspection equipment consists of a miniaturized camera and a powerful LED light mounted on the end of a long, flexible fiber optic cable. The inspector sends the cable down into a drain and guides it deep into the plumbing. The camera feeds its signal back to a video monitor, where the plumber can observe conditions within the pipe interior.

The knowledge a plumber gleans from the video camera feed will help him or her determine the best approach to cleaning the drain or fixing the damage. This information is especially helpful if it locates places where the plumber will need to access the pipe itself to repair or replace it; with the location pinpointed, the plumber will not need to tear out building material or cabinets to try to find the issue, but can apply a surgical repair.

Video pipe inspection will also inform a plumber about the type of build-up developing inside pipes. This will not only assist with cleaning the pipes, it will help you avoid clogs in the future: you’ll know exactly what you shouldn’t be putting down your drains.

Using video inspection equipment requires training: make sure you hire a plumber with the experience and technical knowledge necessary.
