The video camera had become among the valuable tools in plumbing business and it is waterproofed to allow the inspection of the sewer lines with other pipes that are found underground, under home foundation or in cement. The professional trained or skilled technician can insert flexible rod in the high resolution video camera at the tip of pipe which is 2 inches up to 36 inches in the diameter. The flexible rod lets the camera to travel into the pipe and on the corners to see what it is inside the pipe in its entirety. The camera send the real time image which helps the technician to decide the condition which is inside of a pipe and to be able to understand more about the problem that may rise. The image can get saved to be used as permanent record.
When the camera is being used into the line inspection, the radio transmitter found on the camera will record the physical location and the depth of the pipe with the obstruction or the defect so the technician may diagnose or solve the drain line problems at once. With the camera, there will be no guess work and the problem will be solved faster and in efficient manner.
The video will be able to show all problems that the pipe has like the pipe that has been misaligned, the root intrusion, off grade, corroded or punctured pipe. A camera can identify the obstruction, leaks and grease buildup. Inspection may be repeated when the service has been performed in order to see when the line has been repaired or cleaned well. The inspection using the video is recommended when you suffer repeated drain line backup, clogs and slow drains. The video inspection that it is done by you will ensure that the lines of the sewer do not have any problems which may lead to expensive repairs and headaches. The video camera may be used in locating the jewelry that has been lost and valuables such as the animals that had been trapped or lost in the pipes. The problem that may be caused by the underground plumbing system can bring the challenges when it comes to inspect them. Even if the materials that are used in the plumbing lines had high quality and are able to offer many years for their services, the damage may take place in the places that are not that easy to see.
The homeowners are always concerned about the cost of the inspection of the sewer camera during the home inspection during the transaction of the real estate. The sellers wish to minimize the expenses that may be involved into the sale but the buyers also wish to have the guarantee that they are making the best investment that will not backfire on them. Spending some amount on the inspection instead of having to spend more on the plumbing repairs can justify the cost of the inspection.
