If you were around in the ’80s and ’90s it is likely that you owned or at least saw one of those bulky video cameras that people used to use to record video at different events. Now, while it was fun to be able to have multiple little tapes to choose from for embarrassing family video night, we are definitely grateful that video camera technology has evolved beyond these bigger cameras. As cameras got smaller and technology improved it allowed people like us to offer our clients a greatly helpful service known as video pipe inspection.
Imagine how hard it would have been back in the day to try to use your old video camera to look into the pipes and drains of your home! It would have been impossible, which is why it is so great that these modern cameras are small and versatile–it allows us to better do our job.
If you’ve never heard of a video pipe inspection and how it can help your plumbing in Madison, MS, we would be happy to give you some extra information here.
What Is a Video Pipe Inspection?
So, first things first, what exactly is a video pipe inspection? It is about what it sounds like: an inspection performed on your pipes and/or drains that is done with a small video camera that is attached to the end of a flexible cord. This gives you a clear view of what is going on inside your plumbing lines so you know what needs to be done to keep things working.
Instances When a Video Pipe Inspection Might Be Used
So what instances might you encounter that will benefit from the use of a video pipe inspection? Here are a couple of examples of times when you might benefit from this service:
- You may have a leak: Let’s say you come home and start noticing there are signs of a leak in your home, such as the sound of running water and low water pressure. The question is, where might that leak be and how bad is it? A video pipe inspection is going to help figure out where the leak is, its severity, and allow your plumber to effectively and quickly address the issue.
- There is a clog in a drain in your home: Maybe you are doing dishes and you notice that your drain is having trouble draining water. Or maybe your shower is quickly turning into a bath for your feet without a plug being anywhere near the drain. It is likely that you have a clogged drain in these instances, but if both are happening at once you might have a bigger issue with a clogged sewer line. A video pipe inspection can tell you what and where the issue is so you can get your drains flowing again.
