Efficiency is key when it comes to ensuring your plumbing job is done right. With the many technological advances we’ve had over recent years, there’s no doubt that one of the most beneficial was the introduction of video cameras into the commercial plumber’s arsenal of professional tools.
Before plumbing cameras, it was impossible to see exactly what was happening inside your pipes without excavation. Not only is excavation extremely expensive, but it can damage the environment. This is why so many commercial plumbing problems go ignored or simply treated ineffectively, causing more damage and costly problems down the road.
Fortunately, there’s a better solution these days thanks to sewer camera inspections.
Why Are Plumbing Cameras So Effective?
Today, plumbing cameras give us the flexibility and maneuverability of a plumbing snake along with the major benefit of actually being able to see what’s going on inside your pipe. This makes locating problems like leaks and clogs easier than ever before.
Although cameras aren’t used for every job, in many instances they can help to keep down costs and eliminate the guesswork that typically came along with performing many similar jobs in the past. It’s the best way to diagnose and ensure that a problem has been solved by performing the proper repair job.
There are many instances when a plumbing camera is the right choice for your needs, some of which include:
- When you’re unsure about the extent of damage you’re facing or what’s causing the problem in the first place.
- When you’re doing a remodel and you don’t have the blueprints needed for a plumbing installation.
- When you can’t find a leak using traditional methods.
- When you’re experiencing a blockage in your business’ drains, such as grease buildup
- When you’re buying a building and you want to be 100% certain that there is no plumbing issue.
Don’t forget that unknown issues are often the reason the small plumbing jobs turn into big plumbing jobs, and although a plumbing camera won’t scale down the amount of work to be completed, it will ensure that your plumber is accurately diagnosing any issues and performing the best repair work possible.
