As you probably already know, the majority of your plumbing pipes are underground. While hiding pipes in the walls may have a lot of advantages, though, it has one big disadvantage. If you cannot see the pipes, how do you see a plumbing problem? That is where video camera inspection comes in. JS Construction and Septic, Inc. offers comprehensive video camera inspection services throughout Sacramento and San Joaquin County. If you need video camera inspection services call us today to schedule an appointment.
Video camera inspection is the primary method that plumbers use to find problems with a plumbing system. A long cord is inserted into the system, with a motorized camera at the end of it. The camera travels through the plumbing system, sending video back to the plumber controlling it. This way, the plumber can thoroughly examine your plumbing for issues. Video camera inspection also makes it much easier to find and fix problems earlier, so that they do not create larger problems in the future.
Many plumbing problems go unnoticed because the pipes are out of normal sight.
Most plumbing problems can cause a great deal of damage if allowed to continue. For example:
Pinhole Leaks - These tiny leaks are only large enough to leak a couple drops of water at a time, but if left alone they can cause in disaster. Most homeowners do not even notice pinhole leaks, because they are too small to cause a loss in water pressure. In addition, pinhole leaks usually only get noticed once they have rotted out the surrounding area, which is quite obvious even from the other side of the wall.
Corrosion - Corrosion can affect your pipes, weakening them and making it more likely for leaks or ruptures to occur. Without closely examining the pipes, there is no way to actually see this corrosion occurring. The only way to catch these issues early is to have them examined on a fairly regular basis, and the best way to do that is with video camera inspection.
Whether it is your home or business it is a good idea to schedule video camera inspection services at least once a year. That should be more than enough time to catch any developing problems before they can cause too much damage, eliminating an emergency.
