How a Plumber Uses Video Inspection to Detect ProblemsNov 27, 2013
If you’ve ever spent time around children, you know they love to explore with their hands and mouths. A baby will put nearly anything in his or her mouth to learn more about it. As the child grows up, the curiosity never stops. At some point, a child will stick an object down the drain or attempt to flush something down the toilet that shouldn’t be. Marbles, dolls, toy cars–undoubtedly, the object will clog the system and you will be begging for help from a New Orleans plumber. Call Rooterman! We offer services that require high-tech equipment to determine the root of the problem.
One of the popular services we offer is video inspections. This is a state-of-the-art way to detect a problem. During the process, a small video camera is inserted into the sewer or drain line to pinpoint the exact spot of the problem. The procedure is minimally invasive and will not damage or harm your pipes in any way. A trained plumber should be the one to perform this service, as he or she knows the ins and outs of the technology.
Once the camera captures the needed video footage, a diagram is created for the client to examine. The plumber will also use this diagram to determine the correct price of the repair or solution. When it comes to working with a contractor of any type, a written estimate is very accurate information about your expected costs. When you choose Rooterman, you can rest easy knowing you are getting accurate information obtained from the most advanced procedure available.
Using Video Under Slabs
Video inspection is not only effective for clogged drains and toilets, but it is also used under concrete slabs. You might be wondering, “How can you stick a camera underneath a slab of concrete?” It is just as complicated as it sounds. First, we create a hydro tunnel to remove any dirt from under the slab. Then we use our training to identify the damaged pipe. If needed, we will use video inspections to determine the spot. Then, a plumber makes the repair and fills the hole.
Video isn’t the answer to all plumbing problems, but it helps the Rooterman team in many instances. We find the right solution for every circumstance. When you need a qualified New Orleans plumber, call Rooterman. You never know when your child is going to try to flush something down the toilet that shouldn’t be or clog the drain with a toy, and we are ready to help whenever you need us.
