If you are having problems with your pipes, you need to call a plumber to help you figure out what the problem is. There are a few things that the plumber can do to figure out what is going on in your pipes. One thing they can do is use a special camera and run it down your pipes. There are several reasons why you might talk to your plumber and see if this is a service that they offer and if they can use it on your plumbing system.
Less Take Apart
One reason this process may be the right option is that the plumber isn't going to have to take apart your plumbing in order to figure out what is going on in your pipes. With a camera, all the plumber needs is access into your plumbing system so that they can feed the cable with the camera on it into the pipes. Since that cable will be flexible — usually something like a fiber optics cable — it can go around the bends and turns in the pipes. The cable will also be connected to a monitor so that the plumber can see where the camera is going and what is happening in the pipes.
Because the plumber can feed a camera down into the plumbing system, they will be able to know exactly what's going on while also knowing the cable's location. The plumber may not pinpoint the exact space in the pipes where the problem is, but they can get down pretty close to it. That means that the plumber won't have to break apart many walls and floors or dig up a lot of lawn to find the problem. It will make it easier for them to do the work because they know where to look, they know what tools they are going to need to use, and they won't have to do as much work to put the area back to rights they are done with the repairs.
You need your plumbing system to work. If it isn't functioning correctly, you need to have a plumber come out to your house to check out your pipes to see if they can find the problem. They can use a camera and feed it down into the pipes so that they can see what's going on. For more information, contact a company that offers pipe camera inspections.
