Advantages of Video Pipeline Inspection

Gone are the days of guesswork and digging up your whole yard to determine the cause of a pipeline issue. A pipeline video inspection allows for a real-time, non-destructive visual inspection of your sewer lines and other piping to determine the condition of your pipes and uncover potential problems.

How it works

A small, high-resolution video camera is attached to a flexible rod that travels through the pipeline. The camera is propelled forward by a transporter which allows it to travel through the pipe network, from the cleanout to the main sewer, and back into the home. This ensures a comprehensive diagnosis, allowing the inspector to pinpoint the exact cause and location of the problem.

There are several issues that could prevent your drainage system from working properly. Video inspections can find a multitude of issues, including:

  • Blockages or clogs
  • Leaks and cracks
  • Tree root intrusion
  • Pipe corrosion
  • Misaligned pipes

Benefits of Pipeline Inspection

The biggest benefit to using video inspection services is cost. You save not only system down time, but also on labor and materials. There is no need to dig up pipes that are in perfect working order to find one little trouble spot. With a pipeline video inspection, inspectors can view your whole system in less time than traditional excavation repair practices. It is also much more accurate, eliminating the risk of conducting unnecessary repairs.

When to schedule an inspection

If you are experiencing repeated clogged or slow drains, it is recommended that you have a video pipeline inspection done. While pipeline video inspection is primarily used to diagnose current problems, it should also be used as a preventative measure ahead of a home renovation or construction project. Additionally, it is a great idea to conduct a video inspection before you buy a new home so you are aware of any potential issues before closing the deal.
