camera inspection for plumbing

Camera Inspection

Have you ever wondered what is really going on inside the pipes of your plumbing system? Now you can see first hand, in living color!

Sewer video cameras are one of the most valuable tools in the plumbing business and all of our Mr. Flush Plumbers are equipped with the latest video cameras. These specially-made fiber optic cameras allow for a visual inspection of underground sewer lines and other piping to determine the condition of the inside of the pipe.

A flexible rod with a high-resolution color video camera on its tip is inserted into the pipe for inspection. Video images are transmitted to the camera operator and can be saved onto a videotape for a permanent record. Radio transmitters on the camera record the depth and physical location from the surface so that defects and obstructions can be corrected cost-effectively.

Camera Inspection Benefits

In addition, reducing the risk of damage to your pipes while we look for the source of the problem, camera inspection also has other benefits for homeowners including:

  • The ability to locate the exact location of the issue – Instead of hours of digging to locate and repair pipes we can pinpoint the problem with our camera. This helps keep the repair localized and lowers the cost for the homeowner.
  • Leak detection and lowering water bills – Older pipes, or pipes exposed to extreme weather conditions, can have leaks you don’t know about. Even a minor leak adds up over time, and detecting and repairing leaks will lower your water bills and overall energy costs.
  • Early problem detection – While you may have called us out for a drain clog while using the camera we can see if your pipes are corroded, has damage or need replacing. This can catch a small problem before it becomes a major leak or repair.
  • Accurate repairs – We no longer have to guess at the cause of your problem. With camera inspection, we will be able to guarantee that the work we did will fix your problem.
