Utilisation of digital imaging equipment has become so broad these days. Aside from military and medical applications, it can now be used for plumbing inspections. Drain cameras are small, waterproof and offers full colour. Nowadays, they are often used in commercial drain lines, but they are also used to check residential pipelines in several occasions. While this may seem like overusing technology, it actually presents many advantages.
Drain camera when used for drain inspection can help spot the smallest problems. Commonly, burst drains are caused by the smallest problems such as leaks and breaks. Spotting a simple blockage, small cracks or corrosion earlier on, will help prevent these big plumbing problems from occurring.
This neat plumbing equipment can help pinpoint the exact nature and location of the plumbing issue. This unique piece of plumbing equipment is able to answer a lot of questions. It can tell the plumber where the clog is, what is causing the clog and the range of the damage or blockage. Without a drain camera, it would take more time to rip out walls and ceilings or floors to know where the problem is.
While other people think that employing a camera drain will be costly, this thinking is actually far from the truth. Because drain cameras provide detailed information about the cause, location and spread of the issue, a plumber can also minimise the effect or the damage and repair of the drain to the property. It means he can only focus on working on the exact location of the issue.
The same can be said if the problem is spotted early on. Instead of replacing part, the plumber may be able to solve the issue with minor, but effective repair.
