Video camera and damaged location services
Among the most effective ways of inspecting the damaged locations in the drainage system is camera
line inspection. This kind of inspection is regarded to be the most popular was that is used by the
plumbers to determine the sources of the problem in the pies in a quicker and accurate manner.
Using video camera for inspecting damaged pipes
In the following paragraph, we have briefly explained how to use video camera in inspecting the damaged locations in the pipes to be serviced.
First thing first, the plumber or the user is expected to feed a flexible fiber optic cable through the pipe which is suspected to be damaged. This plumber’s camera is having a small waterproof lens and it is attached at the end of the fiber optic cable. The camera has lights in plenty to enable the plumber to
easily see where the problem is. As the cable is fed in the pipe, the camera will be transmitting the live video to the camera operator whose job is to save the findings from the video on a permanent record. When servicing damaged location by using video camera, there are few things which you have to look
out for as in below.
Major damage to the pipes
Any major damage to the piping in the system such as broken, collapsed or cracked pipe is possible to be the major cause of the current plumbing problem. A place surrounding the pipes may give problem to the drain or mass of the soil on top of the pipe can make it to collapse. If you find out that that the seals
which exist between the pipes are broken for some known reasons or there is a leak, then there is a good possibility that you are dealing with the end result of the matter.
A blockage or a clog
Clogs or blockage can build up in the plumbing in several ways. You are likely to experience or notice some kind of blockage in the plumbing if too much of debris or bulky waste is allowed to flow down the plumbing system. For this reason, you are advised not to dump grease down your drains. If a root of a tree or any other plant in the areas surrounding the pipes makes its way into the system, it may restrict the flow of water and this can cause a serious problem in your plumbing.
Wear and tear
The older your plumbing system is becoming, the more the natural wear and tear takes place. The plumbing materials may become antiquated or subjected to deterioration or corrosion. This is likely to happen if for a long time you have been having the same pipes to run the plumbing of your commercial
space. So what are you waiting for.
In this situation, a camera line inspection should be applied as it serves as a great resource for determining whether new pipes and other parts should be installed in the drainage system
