Professional Plumbing Tools Make Repairs Easy

Monday, February 8th, 2016 at 11:00 am

Plumbers bring skill and experience to every job they perform, which is why you should always call in a professional to handle any issues with your plumbing system. But beyond the know-how you gain by calling in a professional, you also get a series of high-end plumbing tools that make the job much easier. These tools are prohibitively expensive for most consumers, who likely won’t have need of it more than a few times in their lives, but for licensed plumbing services, they are an indispensable part of their job. We’ve broken down a list of some of them to give you an idea of what you gain by calling in one of our technicians here in Olympia, WA.

Motorized Snakes

Plumbing snakes are available from most hardware stores, and you can purchase one for as little as a few dollars. But those snakes are usually cheaply made and designed to kinda sorta treat a wide variety of clogs. Contrast that with professional plumbing services, which use motorized snakes to bring power to the clog that you can’t match with a regular snake. Furthermore, such snakes usually have rotating heads designed to treat the exact nature of the clog, ensuring you get the whole thing out instead of just dredging up a piece of the clog to barely get your pipes flowing again.

Video Cameras

It sounds strange but you won’t believe how much of a difference those tiny video cameras have made in plumbing. After all, if they can fit in your phone they can fit inside your pipes, and when attached to a line with a monitor on the other end, they can give the plumber a comprehensive look at the nature of the problem in a way that wasn’t possible just a few years ago. As a result, the diagnosis is more accurate and the repair job takes place with much more efficiency.
