There was a time when doing work of any kind on one’s plumbing system was really a pretty big undertaking. Don’t get us wrong, plumbing systems are as expansive and complex as ever—more so, even. And there are plenty of major jobs that any plumbing system may require. However, because of modern technology, there are better ways to go about doing such jobs than there were even a decade or two ago. That’s not much time in the long run.
One of the best tools/services that we have to offer is video pipe inspection in Las Vegas, NV. You may be wondering why you’d ever want to take such a close look at your pipes. It’s not exactly a great photo opportunity, after all. Well, this is one service that is purely about function. Specifically, video camera pipe inspection equipment performs the function of allowing us to see within your pipes themselves! This is a huge benefit you’ll enjoy when working with The Sunny Plumber Las Vegas.
How We Inspect the Pipes
Your pipes/sewer line/plumbing system have different access points. In the case of drain lines, we may just use the drain opening itself as the point of entrance. Entrance of what, though?
The video camera, of course!
And no, we aren’t going to take a camcorder and try to shove it down your drain.
Video pipe inspection equipment includes a tiny video camera, much like the one that’s affixed to your smart phone. Technology has come a long way since you had the “convenience” of putting a full-sized VHS cassette into your camcorder, hasn’t it?
That camera is attached to a flexible cable that is rigid enough to be fed into the plumbing system (but malleable enouogh to make it around bends). It feeds back images from within the pipe in real time. That footage can be viewed by your Sunny Plumber, and can even be saved for further review.
Okay, That’s Neat, But What’s the Point?
The points are many! We can use the video pipe inspection equipment to pinpoint the source of clogs in your drains. We can use it to evaluate the situation in order to figure out what the best course of action may be, depending upon what type of clog we’re dealing with. We can also use it after we’ve completed the drain cleaning, hydro-jetting, or repairs that the pipe(s) may need. By using the equipment to assess the success and thoroughness of our work, we can guarantee lasting results.
This equipment also gives us the opportunity to ensure that you understand what we are dealing with and the reasoning behind the suggestions that we make. You know that you can trust us, and that we are not just going to try and sell you services that you really don’t need. However, you still want to be sure that you understand why it is that we are doing any given service. The video footage allows us to provide visual evidence for your better understanding.
