Using a video camera for a pipe inspection allows for real-time visualization of underground septic components. This kind of inspection is invaluable to discover hidden problems that may otherwise be missed.
What’s a Video Pipe Inspection?
A flexible fiber optic cable with a specially designed high-resolution video camera on the tip is inserted into the pipe. As this cable pushes through the pipe, a waterproof camera documents the entire process. Then, video images are transmitted to the person operating the camera. These images are used to make a diagnosis for any problems they find. Another plus is that the video inspection can be saved as a permanent record. This is especially useful when getting a septic inspection when buying a new property.
What kind of problems can be found with a video pipe inspection?
A video pipe inspection is incredibly useful for spotting all kinds of problems. They can spot clogs, obstructions, or dirty pipes. They also can determine the condition of piping systems and spot any corrosion or damage. If you have a tree root invasion in your system, the video will be able to catch this as well. In fact, some of these problems can ONLY be determined using a video camera inspection.
Are video pipe inspections expensive?
It may seem like this fancy technological service would be very expensive. However, you can usually get a video camera septic inspection for much less than you would expect. In addition, it is much less expensive than repairing a problem that could have been caught early. Paying for a video inspection could save you hundreds, even thousands, of dollars in the long run. Cameras can catch problems that even the most experienced tech could miss.
