Benefits of a Plumbing Video Camera Inspection

Video plumbing inspections are more than just a fast and affordable way to troubleshoot problems. Some of the unique benefits they offer include:

  • The ability to discover hidden problems before they become an issue. Internal leaks and other issues are often not noticeable until it’s too late. Early symptoms of a problem may be subtle, and may not be caught until serious and expensive damage has already been done. A video plumbing inspection is an important part of preventive maintenance that lets us know well ahead of time when work is required.
  • Improved scheduling. An additional benefit of a video inspection is that, when you know in advance when a problem is brewing, repairs can be scheduled at a time that is convenient for you. Rather than requiring you to shut down operations suddenly, we can work around your schedule to correct the issue.
  • Greater accuracy in diagnosing problems. Sometimes, a leak or other problem can have multiple causes. Conventional troubleshooting provides little indication when this is the case. As a result, it is often necessary to perform additional repairs when a problem recurs. Video inspections provide a quick and easy way to accurately diagnose problems in complicated commercial plumbing systems, so they can be fixed right the first time.
  • Better estimates. In addition to saving you time and money, video plumbing inspections make it easier to develop accurate repair estimates, so you can budget accordingly. When we know fully what the scope of the problem is, we can know with precision the costs and timeline involved in correcting it.

Common Problems That Can Be Detected by a Video Inspection

Video plumbing inspections are one of the most important tools in a Mr. Rooter Plumbing technician’s diagnostic arsenal. They are highly effective at identifying:

  • Clogged or backed-up drains
  • Root intrusion and foreign object blockages
  • Leaking or burst pipes
  • Sewer or water line issues
  • Overflowing or malfunctioning septic tanks

In addition to helping with the diagnosis, video camera inspections provide information that can prevent the problem from recurring. For example, a video inspection can let you know if built-up fat and oil is causing your pipes to clog – a common issue that can be avoided in the future by installing a grease trap.

How to Know When a Video Inspection Is Necessary

Ideally, video plumbing inspections will be a component of your ongoing preventive maintenance routine. In between regular checkups, however, there are a few tell-tell signs of a problem you should be on the lookout for, particularly if you know your system is prone to leaks:

  • Strong musty odors, or the presence of mold and mildew in unexpected places
  • Persistent dripping sounds with no other explanation
  • A sudden, unexpected spike in your water bills
  • Rusted pipe joints, or damage to flooring, wallpaper or roof tiles
  • Squealing or grinding noises when water is running

If you notice any of these symptoms, don’t delay in scheduling a video camera plumbing inspection from Oneida’s Mr. Rooter Plumbing.
