What Is Video Camera Pipe Inspection Equipment?

If you’ve ever seen a spy move where they slide a thin wire under a door or through a window opening in order to look inside the room—that’s sort of like our video camera pipe inspection equipment. The camera and wire are about the thickness of a pencil and can be fed down into your drains and pipes. Our plumbers have a separate unit with a screen that shows us what the camera is seeing in your pipes. We can control the camera so that we can see any blockages, cracks or clogs that might be down in your plumbing.

What Are the Benefits of Video Camera Pipes Inspections

The main benefit of video camera inspections is information. It allows our plumbers to go into each job with as much information as possible. We can pinpoint where the clog is and what it’s made of. That allows us to quickly attack it and remove it. Instead of having to fish around in your plumbing with a long, metal snake we can just send the camera down the pipe to find out exactly where the clog is.

Benefits of Professional Plumbing Maintenance in Olympia

During regular plumbing maintenance visits, your plumber should use video camera equipment to inspect any suspicious problems with your plumbing.
