The arrival of the new year is a time to reflect on what we are grateful for in our lives. Do you know what Sewer Solutions is grateful for? We are thankful for our Seattle clients. We are also thankful for modern technology that makes our job easier. This includes the video equipment that makes camera sewer inspections possible.
Why Camera Sewer Inspections Are Awesome
Before the days of camera inspections, technicians had to rely solely on exterior symptoms or their intuition to diagnose the problem. This didn’t always lead to the right diagnosis, leading to unnecessary sewer repairs or utility installations.
Modern camera technology is versatile and nearly guarantees an accurate diagnosis. Aside from sewer repairs, technicians also use cameras for inspecting ventilation systems, septic systems, and other hard-to-reach areas.
Cameras essentially offer these three benefits:
Technicians use a camera to view a blockage, root intrusion, or sagging pipe in real time. Most systems are also equipped with LED lighting and zooming capabilities, enabling viewers to see much further into the pipe. Footage is also recorded for playback and documentation.
Cameras require minimal technical ability to operate. The camera system itself is also affordable, enabling sewer repair companies to provide inspections at a low cost. Some even offer it for free if clients proceed with repairs.
Cameras are Flexible (Literally)
The repairman can snake the camera deep into the pipe and squeeze the unit into laterals and U-shaped bends. Previously, accessing these deep mainlines was only possible by digging a hole or breaking the drywall to access the pipe.
