Technology continues to make our lives easier. The automobile made transportation faster, the microwave made cooking faster, the telephone made communication faster and now the video camera has made diagnosing plumbing problems faster and more accurate.
This article from EzineArticles.com explains how the video camera has revolutionized the plumbing industry.
A professional plumbing technician uses a flexible rod with a high-resolution camera on one end. He then threads this camera through your pipes to get a better look at your sewer lines from the inside. This camera also contains a radio transmitter, which allows for measuring to the surface, meaning the technician will know exactly where the problems are. This means…
1. It is now easier to locate damage. Plumbers can see inside pipes and actually locate the damaged areas, taking the guesswork out of plumbing. Now, instead of digging up lines to locate a crack (which was a rather expensive procedure), a professional can find everything he needs with a video pipe inspection. This also greatly reduces the total repair time.
2. Video inspections can also assist in determining the cause and location of a blockage or clog. Knowing what is causing the blockage is a critical aspect in removing it.
3. A little preventative maintenance can go a long way. Plumbers can now locate potential problem areas and address them before they ever develop into a major catastrophe, saving you lots of money and even more heartache.
So next time you have a crack, leak, blockage or clog, make sure your plumber has this video technology. Otherwise, who knows how much time and money it may take to alleviate the problem. If you have any questions, contact Mahon Plumbing by clicking here today!
