Diamondback Plumbing is a licensed plumber in Phoenix that has been serving the valley for over 20 years with a well known reputation for great service and competitive pricing for video camera inspections.
What Is Video Camera Line Inspection Used For?
Video camera line inspection is an advanced way of determining the condition of underground sewer lines and other piping. It features the use of a specialized camera that is attached on the tip of a flexible fiber optic cable, and then inserted by a professionally trained technician into the pipe to be inspected. The camera is waterproof and is equipped with powerful lights, thus it can record everything it sees at it travels through the pipe. Radio transmitters are also attached to the camera to exactly pinpoint its location.
The images recorded by the camera are transmitted to the camera operator. He or she can now accurately determine the condition of the inspected pipeline. Repairs can be scheduled immediately after the problem has been identified. Follow-up inspections may also be done from time to time in order to verify if the pipelines has been fully repaired and clear of any clogs or debris.
How Far Does The Video Scope Go?
Video camera line inspection eliminates the need for digging random locations in the pipeline to find the exact cause of the pipeline problem. Our specialized cameras can produce high-resolution images of your pipes from as small as 2 inches to as big as 36 inches in diameter. The cable is flexible enough to propel the camera even through the deepest branch lines where your faucets and toilet seats are located. Thus, the problems in your pipelines can be located quickly and seen vividly. Also, all images produced by our camera are permanently saved in a video file. The maximum distance the cable can travel is about 300 feet.
Video camera line inspection can also make it a quicker and more cost-effective way of repairing your pipelines. Our highly skilled plumbers, through the use of this technology, may just perform spot repairs or just dig on the pipe that needs to be replaced. This is far more convenient than having to dig your entire yard just to search for and repair the damaged pipe.
Identify Potential Problems
Our video camera line inspection service is capable of identifying several possible problems of your pipes quickly and accurately. These problems include blockages, leaking joints, root infiltrations, and old, damaged, offset, bellied, or off-grade pipes.
Pipes may crack, break, or even collapse due to a number of factors. These factors may include:
- A change in the surroundings of the pipe
- Natural wear-and-tear
- Tree roots
- High water pressure
- Offset pipes
A pipe can also be damaged because it can no longer handle the weight of the soil or any object above it. Plants may also damage your pipes.
Pipes may leak because of a crack or break, or because the seals in the joints are damaged. Just a small leak in a pipe may already waste a lot of water and flood the surrounding area.
Offset pipes are pipes that fell out of their original intended positions due to shifting or setting soil, which damages the pipes. Bellied pipes, meanwhile, are parts of the pipe that have already sunk due to ground conditions, creating a basin that collects garbage. Off-grade pipes are existing pipes that are made of substandard or outdated materials.
With the help of our specialized cameras, our plumbers can identify which pipe to repair, realign, or replace it in the fastest possible time.
Identify a Clog or Blockage
Sometimes there are clogs in your pipes that cannot be removed by simply using a plunger or a liquid drain cleaner. Our video camera line inspection service is also capable of vividly showing the objects or substances that block your pipelines. Pipelines are usually blocked by:
- Plant roots
- Food residue (attention dish washers!)
- Baby Wipes
- And much more
Our well-trained plumbers can immediately clean out the clogged pipe using one of our drain cleaning techniques.
