Video Pipe Inspection

Video Pipe Inspection in Cedar Grove, NJ

Plumbing used to be an issue of educated guesses. It’s one thing to see the spot in the pipe where the leak is coming from, but clogs were usually a catch-as-catch-can affair. And both of those issues assume that the affected pipe is easily accessed: under your sink or somewhere else that’s close. When the pipe is underground or in the crawlspace, the plumber needs to take a few shots in the dark in order to spot the exact location.

That’s how it used to be anyway. But the recent advent of miniature video cameras solves the problem perfectly. Video camera inspection allows the plumber to view the problem from inside the pipe, discovering exactly what’s causing the issue as well as the precise spot where it’s located. That allows you to conduct repairs much more swiftly and effectively than you would without such technology. At MarGo Plumbing Heating Cooling Inc., we’re firm believes in video pipe inspection and most of our serious calls in the Cedar Grove, NJ area make use of it!

Tiny Cameras Change the Game

You’ve undoubtedly seen movies or TV shows where the police slip tiny cameras on cables under the bad guys’ door to find out how many of them are lurking in wait. SWAT teams use such techniques all the time. The same principle holds true with video camera inspection lines for your plumbing. You slip the camera down a nearby drain pipe, the line extending back to a tablet or similar monitoring device. The camera comes with a light, allowing the plumber to see exactly, precisely what the problem is and where in the pipes its location. Doing that without making a fishing expedition into the crawlspace of your walls –and even better, allowing you to check any repairs made from the indie – makes a huge difference.
