Drain inspection cameras allow us to inspect the inside of underground pipes and drains. We can determine the cause of your blocked drain, identify any defects in the pipework and recommend a solution based on accurate information. It is a non-invasive and inexpensive way to eliminate guesswork when it comes to your plumbing problems.
We can provide video footage and photographs of your drains, providing evidence of the cause of the blockage. If tenants are continually putting non-flushable items in their drain, you may be able to use this evidence to pass the bill along to them.
Our camera is also equipped with a locator, so if there is a section of pipe that needs replacing, we can tell you exactly where it is. This leads to more accurate quotes and efficient service, saving you money.
It's also a good idea to have periodic pipe and drain inspections completed; prevention is always the best cure. It allows us to find and repair small problems before they turn into large and expensive jobs. For example, hairline cracks may not cause immediate problems, but tree roots attracted to the moisture can make this a much bigger problem. Tree roots can enter even tiny cracks, and once inside, they will continue to grow. Eventually, they will form an impenetrable mass within the pipes which can cause significant damage and repeated blocked drains. A qualified plumber can intervene early to minimise the damaged and lessen the cost of repairs.
