If you are a homeowner faced with some plumbing issues, the last thing on earth you want to do is tear up your landscaping all for the purpose of getting to your underground pipes. However, if you suspect that you have a broken pipe or even a potential blockage in your pipes, you might just face the possibility of having to rip up your Begonias just so you can get to the problem – at least, that is how it was in the past. Today, due to technological advances in digital image capturing, you can keep your lovely landscaping intact and looking beautiful. How? Through the use of video pipe inspections.
How You Benefit from a Video Inspection of Your Pipes
There are several advantages when it comes to viewing underground pipes through video. The top three benefits you get from making use of this technological innovation:
1.Sparing the Landscape
Since you will be viewing your underground pipes with special video equipment, there’s no damage or digging done to your yard. With the use of video inspections, the upset to the natural landscape is minimal and easily remedied once the pipe problem is identified and rectified. While it is true that a portion of the yard might have to be dug up in order to get to the underground portion of the pipe with a blockage, the area disturbed is far smaller than if you had no initial idea of where the blockage is located before the dig. Ultimately, this means a smaller dig area – a smaller fix area, all of which is due to the amazing precision afforded to you via video technologies.
2.Expeditious Discovery of the Plumbing Issue
Face it; having to dig up a good chunk of your back yard is timely and expensive. Having a plumber systematically look for a blockage in a pipe in order to repair it is timely and costly. With video inspection, which involves the use of a video camera specifically created to work with storm drains and sewer pipes, the dig is minimized, and the location of a blockage or repair issue is simplified: This means you save on both time and expense.
3.Monetary Savings and Convenience
It might surprise you to find video inspection for your pipes is an affordable technology. However, video pipe inspection is inexpensive because it is a process that saves on time and labor costs – these savings are handed down to you, the homeowner. Having a discussion with a qualified plumber such as those at Dr. Pipe Drain and Plumbing Services can lead to potential negotiations on service price.
