Save Time and Money with a Video Camera Pipe Inspection

If you’ve ever experienced an emergency plumbing situation like a clogged drain, you know the havoc it can wreak on your home. Forget not being able to use your kitchen or bathroom; the longer a clogged drain is ignored, the more damage it causes to your plumbing system. This adds up when you look at the repair and water bills. Fortunately, scheduling a video camera pipe inspection for your Houston home can eliminate the hassle of manually diagnosing your problem, saving you lots of time, money, and frustration.

How Does a Video Camera Pipe Inspection Work?

Plumbing system problems can be caused by a variety of factors, all of which display similar symptoms. Although professional plumbers are experienced in performing quick repairs, it can be hard to pinpoint the exact location of the obstacle because the whole system is connected. The traditional method of determining plumbing problems is through trial-and-error, but modern technology has improved this process by leaps and bounds. 

Most plumbing companies now use video cameras to quickly identify whatever damages the pipes sustain. Aberle provides plumbers with high-tech, high-resolution cameras that are waterproofed and embedded with LED lights. This camera is connected to a fiber optic cable, which is then connected to a video feed. Plumbers will insert the camera into the pipes and monitor all activity on the video feed. Once they identify the problem, they will pinpoint the location and immediately get to work on your plumbing repairs

The Benefits of Video Camera Pipe Inspections

Although the accompanying graphics won’t be pretty, video camera inspections are actually very useful for both plumbers and homeowners. 

  • Eliminate trial-and-error: Without a video camera pipe inspection, there is no exact way of knowing where the obstruction is occurring. Plumbers would have to dig in your yard until they find the right location of the damage. This may not sound like such a bad idea now, but you’ll think otherwise when half your yard looks like a construction site. 
  • Quick, easy diagnosis: Plumbers that take advantage of state-of-the-art tools can determine the problem and repair it quickly. You can resume your normal plumbing usage before you know it. 
  • Determine condition of pipes: You initially called Aberle because you were experiencing a severe clogging issue that required immediate repair. However, through the video camera pipe inspection, our expert plumbers also found that your sewer system has a crack that is causing serious leakage and could result in the collapse of that component if left untreated. Unknowingly, you saved yourself thousands of dollars in expensive repairs by determining the condition of your pipes early.
