At Culler Plumbing Services, we are proud to say that we utilize the latest tools and technology so that we can provide you with the high level of service that our plumbing customers have come to expect from us. Although we use a variety of state-of-the-art equipment, we are very excited to highlight our camera inspections!
Cameras have become one of the most valuable tools in the plumbing industry. They provide an unprecedented look into your plumbing and sewer system that we otherwise would never have been able to experience. One of our highly trained plumbers will insert a rod with a high-resolution camera attached at its tip into your pipes. This camera will allow us to clearly identify a variety of problems that may exist in your pipes, including:
- Root Intrusion
- Grease Buildup
- Off-Grade Pipes
- Broken Pipes
Not only are these cameras useful for identifying problems, but they can also be utilized after your pipes have been repaired or cleaned, so that we can give you peace of mind in knowing that your pipes are completely fixed and ready to have water flow through them again.
When there are inaccurate guesses or estimations, it can leave you with a drawn-out problem that could end up costing you quite a bit of your hard earned money. Cameras have become such a valuable tool in the plumbing industry because they take the guesswork out of the equation, and they allow for a lot more accuracy. More accuracy means a quicker, more cost-effective repair for you. Do you have any questions or concerns about our camera inspections? Feel free to give us a call!
Benefits of Sewer Camera Inspections
They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, and plumbing is no exception. Sewer camera inspections offer a wealth of information at a price you can’t not afford. Sewer camera inspections provide many benefits that include:
- Taking the guesswork out of plumbing systems
- Identifying leaks or breaks without digging
- Provide “eyes” where you couldn’t otherwise see
- Find lost objects
- Offers inspection for home purchase
Sewer camera inspections are great for evaluating the interior of residential and commercial plumbing systems to identify problems. This can be useful when you are buying or selling the property or for identifying the source of your plumbing problems. Once the problem is identified, formulating a plan is much easier and will lead to much less work and property damage.
At Culler Plumbing Services, we use sewer cameras to inspect your plumbing systems to provide you insight into your plumbing problems. Schedule your service today!
What Camera Inspections Can Discover
Because the camera can be extended nearly the length of your entire plumbing system, it can help the plumbing technicians at Culler Plumbing Services identify nearly any plumbing problem. However, there are a few conditions that sewer camera inspections are particularly useful at helping us take a better look at.
Broken, cracked, or collapsed pipes.
Because the camera travels along the inside of the pipe, it can help the plumber visualize everything from the inside-out. This can be especially useful in getting a good look at a crack or break to determine where it is and how significant it is. Some cracks may be repaired while others may require a portion of the pipe to be replaced.
Blocks and clogs.
Over years of use, your pipes may develop some significant clogs. Depending on the blockage and what material is causing the clog, it may be difficult to relieve with traditional methods. This is when it is time to take a closer look. Grease, oil, hair, hard water sediment, leaves, and sewage can all lead to some pretty gnarly clogs that require direct visualization to formulate a plan of attack.
Tree root infiltration.
Tree roots are able to penetrate porous pipes including cast iron and clay. Tree roots can find small cracks or soft spots in the pipes and infiltrate in an attempt to collect the water inside. Tree roots are not easy to see from above ground and this is where a sewer camera inspection comes in handy. A sewer camera allows the technician to identify where the tree roots have penetrated the pipes and where repairs are necessary.
If your water is discolored or smells bad, it could be caused by corrosion of your plumbing system pipes. Corrosion may cause cracks, breaks, or leaks, or could simply cause the inside of your pipes to enter the water flow or cause places where sediments can build up easier. Using a sewer camera can help identify where the corrosion exists and to what extent it has affected your pipes.
Over time, pipes can bow or sag under pressure. These sagging lines can cause water and sediments to pool causing backups, corrosion, or foul smells. Using a sewer camera allows the plumbing technician to identify where the sagging lines are, how bad the deviation is, and how much water is pooling in the pipe.
At Culler Plumbing Services, we offer sewer camera inspection services to help identify problems in your plumbing system without digging or taking apart your pipes.
