Camera Inspection

Camera Inspection

Yes, even the plumbing industry must keep at the forefront of innovation and be up to date with the latest technologies! Indeed, nowadays, instead of digging and damaging your lawn and garden to solve a problem blindly, specialists can detect the cause and, above all, the precise location of plumbing problems using this valuable tool called the camera. Thus, a camera inspection of sewer lines is an innovative prevention method that is increasingly being used by plumbers and is ultimately a very cost-effective solution.

 

The inspection camera is particularly effective in sewer systems. It pinpoints the exact nature and location of problem spots, regardless of its cause (subsidence, roots, misalignment, breakage, etc.). Similarly, the camera can transmit the image of the location where grease accumulation, leaks or obstruction occurs, whatever it may be.

Why Perform a Camera Drain Inspection?

 

 

The camera is used to check the condition of a drainage or piping system to determine the most likely cause of a problem. This allows technicians to diagnose very accurately and find out if the situation affects part or all of a pipe, thereby avoiding unnecessary costs.

 

Camera inspection is a non-destructive technique and very flexible in its use. It can identify a host of problems during the same intervention:

  • Broken, cracked or collapsed pipes
  • Offset pipes – sewer pipes have become misaligned due to shifting soil, frozen ground, settling, etc.
  • Blockage by accumulation
  • Presence of corrosion
  • Leaking joints
  • Root infiltration
  • Deteriorating pipes

Handling the inspection camera

 

The specialist inserts a flexible rod mounted on an HD camera into conduits two inches in diameter or more. By moving inside the pipes, the camera makes it possible to see their condition in addition to identifying existing or potential problems.

 

A camera in the water, you might say! Designed specifically for this purpose, the camera, when inserted into the pipe, can operate efficiently, in addition to illuminating its path since it is equipped with powerful lights. In addition to retransmitting the images in real time, the camera can record its inspection, which can be convenient when you have it inspected as part of a real estate transaction, for example. The technician analyzes the data as it is received, allowing him to make a clear and precise diagnosis of the problem.
