As the pumping industry has advanced, video camera technology has become more valuable over time. Rather than using the traditional disassembly of lines and infrastructures to target problem sources, waterproof cameras are now being used to provide visual feedback from pipe and sewer line inspections. We begin by inserting a highly flexible rod that is attached to a high definition camera into the pipe system. Pipes can range anywhere from 2-36 inches in diameter. As the rod descends into the pipe, it can travel deep into the infrastructure and even bend around corners in order to expose obstructions and problems. As the rod travels through the pipe, the technician can monitor it in real time. Pictures and video can be recorded for future use as well.

Video Camera Line Inspection Eliminating Guesswork

Using real time monitoring with the high definition camera, theres no need to make any educated guesses about what a problem or obstruction could be. This makes for a quick, cost-effective, and accurate diagnosis of plumbing problems.

What is a grease trap?

A grease trap is exactly as it sounds. It is a trap that collects grease from water as it leaves drains and travels toward your sewage system. If you have an on-site septic tank, you know the importance of keeping it functioning optimally. To keep grease from hardening in the pipes and causing water flow or sewage backup issues, grease traps could be installed anywhere in your facility. Because they are extremely cheap and practical solutions, they may be in areas of a supermarket, home or manufacturing plant that you do not expect.

Proper Identification of Problems

Using a high definition camera in conjunction with this plumbing technique, various types of problems can be identified. The camera can identify root intrusion, corrosion, misalignment, breaks, punctures, grease buildup, obstructions, and leaks. Once a repair is serviced, the camera is then used a second time to ensure it was completed correctly. This type of inspection is recommended for those that struggle with clogs, slow drains, or drain line backups. If you are planning on purchasing a home or other property, this type of inspection is recommended in order to make sure the lines and pipes are free of complications. In the history of video camera line inspection, the technique has been helpful in even locating valuables and lost jewelry. Likewise, lost or trapped animals have been identified and removed from piping.
