A blocked drain can be a homeowner’s nightmare. Blocks have many causes, and getting to the root of the problem can be a long, difficult process. Luckily, the use of closed-circuit television (CCTV) for drainage inspection has been an excellent advancement, offering numerous benefits for both homeowners and plumbers. These benefits include:
The CCTV camera is a one-size-fits-all approach and an effective tool for inspecting pipes of different sizes, forms, and types. Its versatility allows more efficient inspection while providing quicker results.
When you have a clogged drain, you want it fixed immediately. CCTV cameras speed up the process because the plumber is able to see everything in real-time on a TV screen, allowing him/her to accurately diagnose the problem right away.
Real-Time Results and Reporting
Once the camera is lowered down the drain, the technician can view the internal structure of the pipe and the condition of the blockage. The entire inspection process is also recorded on DVD. This helps plumbers more easily diagnose and report problems.
CCTV camera is the least expensive method of quickly identifying issues within pipes, drains, and sewers. It avoids the major cost of diagnosing through an inconvenient excavation.
CCTV drainage inspection minimizes disruption by eliminating the need for digging and other intrusive diagnostics. This means homeowners can go about their normal day-to-day activities without plumbers all over the property.
CCTV cameras are lightweight and can be set up easily and transported anywhere by the plumber.
