There really are no cons to doing a video camera inspection in your home or business’s sewer line. Plumbing and drain cleaning experts have been using video camera pipe inspections for years and the technology keeps getting better and better. The video displayed on the mini TV screen is much clearer and many show color, not just black and white. We are now able to record footage of the inside of your sewer pipes to film and document any root intrusion, sewer pipe blockages, and/or cracks or breaks in your sewer line. A video camera inspection can save you a lot of time in diagnosing what is going on in your pipes.
In our years of home and business visits, we’ve seen many costly plumbing and drain cleaning issues that could have been avoided with preventative maintenance. Like changing the oil in a car, preventative plumbing evaluations add miles to your total home plumbing and drain systems. A small leak can be addressed quickly and inexpensively with a new washer or pipe fitting replacement, but it must be found and fixed before the issue escalates. If the leak is left unfixed, it can lead to flooding, pipe bursts, broken fixtures and other large issues. Many of these small necessary fixes go unnoticed until they become more expensive, more timely projects.
