Webster Groves, Missouri Sewer Camera Inspection
Having problems with your sewer pipes? Your local plumber in Webster Groves Missouri is unable to diagnose the problem? That happens more than you think. Plumbers aren’t Superman; they don’t have X-ray vision to see the insides of your sewer pipes. Most of them diagnose the problems based on your pipe’s symptoms and their own experience, but at that point, even the best plumbers are making only guesses. Your best option when it comes to diagnosing sewer pipe problems is a Sewer Camera Inspection.
A sewer camera inspection is for you if you wish to eliminate all the guesswork and get directly to the heart of the problem.
Why Camera Inspection of Domestic Drain Pipes
The sewer drain pipes in most homes range from ½ ” (13mm) to 6” (150mm). These fall into the category of small bore pipes. The smaller the pipe, the more vulnerable it is to clogging and eventual damage.
As you are probably aware, traditional pipe replacement requires excavation along the route of the sewer to remove and replace the damaged sections. Excavation tends to be very messy and expensive too. Plus the time to restore the aesthetics of your home is painfully long.
Fortunately, however, with the advent of modern inspection and repair techniques, you don’t have to go down the path. You don’t have to excavate sewer pipes in order to find the problem source. A sewer camera inspection goes inside your pipes, and lets you see what’s happening inside. It will help towards faster and more accurate sewer repair process. And if you have the tools and the know-how, you can even do it yourself!
Sewer Camera Inspection Procedure
The procedure is simple. Firstly, our plumbers use a hydro-jet device to flush your sewer pipes of all grit, sludge, and grime. This cleans up the pipe and allows the camera to go inside your sewer pipe for inspection of possibly damaged sections.
A high-resolution camera, a TFT display, and a flexible push pipe form the components of the inspection gear. The camera is attached to one end of a flexible push pipe. Our plumbers then insert it into the drain pipe.
As the camera travels along the length of the damaged pipe, a radio transmitter inside the camera assembly transmits back images of the sewer. A TFT display unit mounted on the trolley receives and displays them. The distance of the camera from the initial insertion point is also transmitted to the display unit. You can actually see and locate the damaged portions of the drain pipe.
Our inspection team of technicians and engineers will show you all the pictures and live feed of the damaged pipe. You may even request a CD of the process. And don’t forget to ask for a realistic estimate of repairs.
