The plumbing system is one of the most important elements in our home.  In fact, it is the busiest part of the house, as this is the source of our water supply and drainage.  Since it is regularly used, it is more prone to clogs and damages. Though it is a good thing that there is a 24 hour plumbing service in our neighbourhood, this is also the type of household problem that we do not like to deal with.  

One of the key tools that plumbers use nowadays to troubleshoot plumbing problems is a sewer camera.  Why is this kind of inspection very relevant and how does this benefit us?

  1. Diagnoses more accurately

When using the sewer camera, we all get a full, real-time view of what’s happening down our pipelines or in the sewers.  Plumbers will be able to identify exactly what is causing the problem, where it is located, how far it is and how difficult it is to get there.  As homeowners, we also get to witness exactly what is causing the problem and not just rely on what the plumber tells us.

  1. No need for digging

Since we can see everything in full view, then there is no need for the plumbers to dig on your pipes or sewers just to find the problem.  The great thing about this is that it saves our structures from damages and our pockets from the huge expenses of repair.

Traditionally, finding the problem involves a trial-and-error process.  Now, instead of digging up the whole yard, we only need a small hole to insert the camera and see everything that needs to be done.

  1. Saves time

No more digging means time efficiency. With the help of the camera, diagnosing the problem is a lot faster.  What takes days for the plumber to dig and inspect in the past now only takes a few hours.

Once the plumber has seen the problem, he can easily create accurate solutions. The best part is, a final video inspection is also carried out to ensure that the repairs have been done perfectly and the plumbing system is working properly. 

  1. Saves on labour costs

Traditionally, plumbers need a bit of luck when trying to find the problem.  Because it is a very tedious job, plumbers would charge us a lot for the heavy work and the time it would consume. Nowadays it takes less time and effort to inspect and diagnose the problem, so we also save on labour costs.  

  1. Helps in purchase decision

When you are planning to buy a property, scheduling a sewer camera inspection will definitely come in handy.  You will be able to get a fair assessment of the home’s plumbing system by seeing its actual state.  Through this information you will be able to know what exactly is the value of the property and if it is worth buying.

Because of the great benefits of having sewer camera inspection, you can now actually call for these services from time to time, whether to check clogs that you are beginning to notice, or simply to maintain the health of your overall plumbing system.  It can definitely save you a lot of trouble and money in the future.
