Video Camera Line Inspection Service

Video Camera Line Inspection has grown to become a popular and valuable service for those in pump truck services and the plumbing industry. The video camera is a flexible rod that has a high-resolution camera at the end of it where the images are transmitted to a camera operator and recorded for viewing at a later time.

This tool allows technicians to see inside sewer lines and pipes and has many benefits for business owners and homeowners alike. With the video camera, technicians are able to easily locate damage, cracks and other problems in the sewer lines and pipes. Instead of digging up the sewer lines, the video camera allows the property owner to save money and mitigate future emergency maintenance by discovering the problem ahead of time.

Any foreign objects causing a blockage in your lines and pipes are also identifiable with the video camera. A video camera can be used to find valuable belongings such as jewelry that may have accidentally been dropped down a drain.

If you are dealing with problems in your sewer lines and pipes, video cameras are a cost effective method that could potentially save money on repair bills in the future.

Preventive Maintenance Series – Video Line Inspection

As part of our series on preventive maintenance for your plumbing, let’s take a look at Video Line Inspection.

Edenflo Video Line InspectionVideo line inspection can help us find all manner of plumbing problems. Most often, it will alert us to a developing clog situation, and we can use hydro flushing (located on the same truck as the camera equipment) to get rid of the buildup before it impedes the system’s function.

We occasionally find more serious problems that require more serious repair work. Because of Video Line Inspection’s ability to pinpoint the exact location of a problem, you’ll save money because it will reduce the amount of costly excavation needed to affect a repair.

A plumbing system with a problem will tend to lead to other problems. Regular preventive maintenance is the key to reducing overall maintenance costs, and preventing disaster in the form of sewer back up and flooding.

Edenflo’s technicians are armed with the technology and know-how to solve your problems and save you money.

Our technicians are certified by Pipeline Assessment and Certification Program, which is widely accepted as the industry standard system for coding defects and construction features in pipes and sewers. They are able to determine exactly what, and where, the problem is in your septic or sewer drain with the use of a specially designed CCTV (closed circuit TV) camera. The camera is fed into the system, and can pinpoint problems, large and small, in the waste drains in your home or commercial premises.

Our expertise in the business of sewer and septic systems comes into play in interpreting the information the video provides. It’s dark down there, and everything tends to look kind of the same. Our experienced technicians can tell the subtle differences between a dirty pipe (and they’re all dirty) and a clog, or a weakened sidewall that’s leaking. Armed with the information that the video reconnaissance gives them, we can propose the most economical fix. In most cases, we can use our hydro-jet equipment to clear a clogged system quickly and efficiently, so you can get back to the things that are important to you.

In addition to diagnosing problems, Video Line Inspection can be used to evaluate the overall condition of your septic and sewer lines, a great idea as part of general preventive maintenance, and helpful when considering purchase of a resale property.

When to Use Video Line Inspections

Performing a pipe inspection using a video camera is the simplest way to produce a visual inspection in real-time of interior water lines and underground sewer pipes. Using a flexible cable that is fabricated out of fiber optics, with an attached high resolution camera positioned at the end of the cable, allows the technician to have a complete view of the inside of the pipe. This helps to evaluate the condition of the pipe, and locate any obstructions. Once the blockage has been verified, it can be removed by a variety of options, to ensure its proper function.
