One of the most difficult things about maintaining a plumbing system is recognizing when it has a problem. Most plumbing problems are quite subtle, and can only be detected by physically examining the pipe. This is quite difficult, since the vast majority of the plumbing system is hidden in the walls and floor. By the time most of these problems have progressed far enough for homeowners to notice them, the damage has already been done. There is only one reliable way to catch plumbing problems before they cause too much damage. Let’s take a look at the benefits of video pipe inspection.
Video pipe inspection involves inserting a long cord into your plumbing system, with a small camera at the end of it. The camera moves through your plumbing system, propelled by tiny wheels, and sends images back to the plumber operating it. This method allows your plumber to find problems that need repair without having to tear up your home to examine each pipe physically.
Scheduling annual video pipe inspection is one of the best ways to make sure that your plumbing system remains in good shape. Your plumber should be able to catch any plumbing problem early enough to prevent the majority of the damage it could cause. You will probably still have to have your system repaired a bit, but you’ll definitely have fewer issues to deal with than if you waited for a problem to present itself. You can save thousands of dollars in repairs over the years by scheduling pipe inspection at least once a year.
