The field of plumbing has had its share of improvements over the years. This is especially so when it comes to equipment. Nowadays, plumbers have access to more advanced equipment that help them provide the best service possible. In a lot of ways, these tools help them do their job well while making things a little easier for them.
One of the latest innovations in plumbing is video camera detection. Diamondback Plumbing is proud to announce that we have video cameras as part of our plumbing equipment in Flagstaff.
We have built a solid reputation providing all of our customers with the best possible plumbing service at competitive prices. This reputation has been built on customers having a great experience with Diamondback Plumbing and they keep coming back for any plumbing needs and concerns they have.
What Is It?
Video camera detection is essentially a technique used in plumbing wherein a video camera is used to find problems in different parts of a building’s plumbing system. Designed to fit into both large and small pipes, this camera is compact enough to slip into the smallest of pipes, providing important details to the overall condition of a building’s piping system.
Aside from identifying damaged parts, this method can also be used to identify areas in the line that can potentially break. The use of cameras has become an efficient and minimally invasive way to assess the condition of water lines, sewer lines, gas lines, and other forms of plumbing.
How Far Does the Video Scope Go?
The distance that the video scope can go depends on the model of the scope itself. The earliest models of scopes used for plumbing have a range of about 10 to 30 meters. That is enough to scan the length of a small or medium-sized line. However, larger-sized lines would require a longer scope.
Some of the more advanced video scopes available on the market have a length of over 100 meters, which can be used to scan the length of just about every line out there. Video scopes used by Diamondback Plumbing are some of the latest; we carry lines that have more than enough length to scan your entire household or office pipe lines.
Identify Potential Problems
The use of video camera detection is very effective for checking the overall status of your lines. Because you won’t have to dig into the ground just to get access to the pipes, the use of video is a great way to assess lines for maintenance purposes. Probes can visualize potential weak points in your pipes. A trained professional can detect these weak points right away while watching the video. Some of the more advanced scopes in the market today are equipped with auxiliary equipment that can detect weak spots even when not visualized by the camera. A video scope can identify potential problems even before they emerge.
Identify Clogs and Blockages
Clogs and blockages are the most common issues found in all types of pipe lines. Finding the clog or blockage can be quite tricky, especially if it is located deep under the ground. Traditionally, the only recourse for non-visible clogs and blockages is to dig deep into the ground and find the defective pipe.
This is time-consuming, highly damaging to your property, and expensive. With the help of a camera, you can pinpoint exactly where the clog or blockage is located. This will enable plumbers to locate where they should go to work and determine what technique is most effective in dislodging the clog.
