CCTV Camera Inspection
Plumbing cameras or CCTV drain cameras are small, cameras that are built into a flexible pipe. They are used by a Brisbane plumber to inspect the inside of your drains pipes, sewer and stormwater pipes.
Because plumbing cameras are built into a long, flexible cable they can easily pass through the bends in your underground pipes. CCTV technology is critical for a Brisbane plumber as it can be used for diagnosing and repairing problems inside plumbing pipes.
This is particularly important as plumbing pipes are often hard to get to. Common places for plumbing pipes include underground, inside walls, under floors and near driveways. By getting a Brisbane plumber who has access to a CCTV camera you will be able to diagnose what problems your pipes are having, without needing to excavate them. This allows you to save on costs and property damage as excavation can be a major procedure.
How Does A CCTV Inspection Work?
If you need to get your underground or otherwise hard to access pipes inspected, contact a Brisbane plumber. With access to the latest CCTV inspection cameras suitable for your job, a Brisbane plumber will save you time and money in the long-run. A Brisbane plumber will also know the most suitable location to insert the CCTV camera in to get a clear picture of your pipe while being able to move accurately using the flexible rod.
This camera will then transmit a real-time, high-resolution video display to the Brisbane plumber based on where the Brisbane plumber points it. The plumber will then adjust the CCTV inspection camera until they find the problem. Allowing them to assess the issue accurately and make informed decisions based on this information. As a client, you will be able to ask the Brisbane plumber for the recording of this footage to also get a clear gauge of your pipes situation.
What repairs the Brisbane plumber recommend depend entirely on the situation your pipes are in. Clogged drains are the most common problem experienced by a Brisbane plumber. For this reason, we have invested in the latest equipment to ensure that no blockage proves to be a challenge for The Brisbane Plumbers. We use a high-pressure drain cleaning tool known as the jet blaster.
This will ensure a Brisbane plumber will only need to use excavation as the last resort. This includes damaged or broken pipes which will require a partial or full excavation.
Common problems with your drain include:
- Clogged/blocked drains
- Tree root infiltration
Blockages are one of the most common reasons for clogged pipes. Clogged and blocked sewer pipes are commonly caused by items such as grease, wet-wipes and sanitary items moving through your drains.
Tree root infiltration is another common issue. This is because tree roots are attracted to the moisture and minerals inside your pipes. Loose joints and hairline cracks are great sources of moisture and provide roots with a spot for infiltration. Tree roots infiltrating your pipes can be particularly damaging if your pipes are made from terracotta or metal. This is common in older homes. Once inside these types of pipes, the tree roots will grow and cause damage over time.
Another major cause is misaligned or damaged pipes. Because your sewer line is underground your pipes will be damaged and misaligned with movements in earth and soil.
