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 plumbing cameras into the plumber’s arsenal of professional tools.
Before plumbing cameras, it was impossible to see exactly what was happening inside your pipes without removing them or digging them up. This type of diagnosis can be extremely expensive, which is why so many plumbing problems have been ignored or simply treated ineffectively with a sewer pipe.
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 an issue and ensure that a problem has been solved by performing the proper repair job.
There are many instances when a plumbing camera is a 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 update that includes a sink, tub, or toilet installations.
- When you can’t find a leak using traditional methods.
- When you’ve lost an important item down the drain.
- 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.
