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.
