Sewer and pipe camera inspections in Hercules, California should be considered necessary at this point. With many area homes and business buildings being over forty years old, area plumbing can easily fall into disrepair.
How could a camera inspection help your Hercules home or business?
Camera inspections were part of the trenchless plumbing innovations of the late 1990s and early 2000s. These technologies don’t rely on the heavily excavational methods of traditional repairs. Even for a simple inspection a trench the length, depth, and width of your pipe would have to be dug before trenchless technology hit the scene. Your water would have to be shut off during the excavation for this pipe. Additionally, digging this trench costs money, and it costs money to repair the damage done by creating the trench. Those repairs can cost into the thousands depending on your landscaping and hardscaping features.
Camera inspections remove the hassle of excavation, the long wait time, and the guesswork of diagnosing a problem. Cheaper, faster, and much easier, camera inspections can comfortably be done in less than a business day and give much more insight than the traditional “dig and inspect” method.
How Camera Inspections are Performed
Camera inspections utilize an HD, waterproof camera attached to a firm and bendable cable that is then fed into your emptied pipes. Once the camera is inside of your line, it sends video and photo footage back to our technicians above-ground, who then examine it thoroughly to determine if there are any pipe issues that need repair.
Emergency Camera Inspections
Camera inspections are a valuable tool for emergency plumbing situations as well as routine maintenance. If you experience sudden waste backup, continuous clogs, or extreme disruption to regular water flow and function, it may be a sign of an immediate danger to your pipes like a fracture, leak, or clog. Camera inspections can easily identify these problems and allow one of Absolute Plumbing’s expert technicians to correctly diagnose what you’re experiencing and offer you a solution that can provide you instant relief.
Camera Inspections for Maintenance
In terms of maintenance, camera inspections are great for bi-annual check-ups or even three times a year maintenance. It’s recommended to get your pipes inspected at least every season, so at least three to four times a year, just to make sure they’re prepared for the next season, clean, and in good working order. Having clean, functional, and proper pipes allows your home ro run more smoothly during the summer, winter, and spring months, which is vital to ensuring your safety and comfort during these sometimes challenging parts of the year. With camera inspections, you never have to doubt what the cause of your problems may be, or what the solution may be. Every inspection gives us a fairly accurate reading of an estimate and total project cost, labor, and materials needed.
