Over the course of a quarter-century, our local Granite City plumber has seen enough to know where homeowners are lacking in plumbing education. It’s okay though, that’s why you have a local plumbing company to help! The average homeowner doesn’t think much about their plumbing system unless it isn’t working properly. It is likely because the good majority of your plumbing system is not visible on a daily basis. You operate what you need to by using faucets and drains and all of the unsightly pipes do the work behind the scenes.

Join us in today’s post as we discuss some of the benefits of a camera inspection and how it can help keep your plumbing system in peak condition.

First, let’s talk about what a camera inspection is. Plumbing camera inspections are using the latest technology to identify plumbing problems, accurately and quickly — all without taking walls apart or needless excavation! Although, if needed, our expert plumbers can also safely perform excavation services to rapidly repair underground leaks. A camera inspection is exactly what it sounds like — a plumbing inspection that uses a camera. The state-of-the-art camera is attached to a flexible scope that can be snaked through your pipes to get a visual of the inside of your plumbing system. This helps to identify a variety of problems including weak connections, corrosion, cracks, leaks, and clogs. Once an issue is identified, your Granite City plumber can fix the problem with as little damage to your home or property as possible.

State-of-the-Art Technology Improves The Health of Your Plumbing System

There are many great benefits that camera inspections from your local plumber can offer. Some of those include the speed and accuracy with which your plumbing woes can be fixed. There is no need to wait until your plumbing system is experiencing symptoms, in fact, we suggest you have a camera inspection performed regularly to identify small issues before they become big problems.

Eliminate the Guesswork

The biggest benefit of a camera inspection is seeing the problem firsthand. This eliminates the need to make a diagnosis based on symptoms but allows both you and your plumber to visualize the problem from inside the pipes. Because, unfortunately, none of us have x-ray vision, the camera footage allows us to see exactly what the condition of the inside of your pipes is and what the clog may be made of or the cause of a leak. Knowing exactly what the condition is, helps to formulate a treatment plan that is sure to work.

Avoid Unnecessary Digging

Many times, when there are obvious leaks — as evident by pooling water or water damage — the first action is to dig to find the suspected pipes. Sometimes this digging is into the ground but other times it is in your walls and foundation. Using a sewer camera inspection can eliminate this problem. A camera accurately identifies issues so you can dig exactly at the problem site, or even not at all!

Prevent Plumbing Emergencies

Preventative camera inspections can help you prevent costly plumbing emergencies. By identifying and fixing small plumbing issues before they become big problems, you can prevent plumbing emergencies that can arise from clogs and leaks. If you forget to do preventative plumbing maintenance and do find yourself experiencing a plumbing emergency, our Granite City plumbing company does offer 24-hour plumbing services.
