By employing the use of video technology, regular pipe maintenance and diagnostic tests can be performed more quickly and more efficiently than ever before.

How does video pipe inspection work?

The process of video pipe inspection is performed using a remote control video camera to go deep into the mainline pipe of your home or business. Once the camera is in proper position, the contractor is able to view and inspect the entire pipeline for obstructions or any other issues.

These obstructions can include but are not limited to dirt and debris, tree roots, areas where the pipe is broken, and degradation of seals and pipe joints.

The advantages of video pipe inspection

Plumbing installation, repairs, and inspection can be performed with minimal soil disruption. This means less digging to find and repair mainline pipe problems.

Without a video system, clogs or leaks that are buried beneath a building or structure can be extremely expensive to locate and repair.

Exfiltration

There are people that feel exfiltration is a naturally and healthy process to help clean soiled water and replenish nutrients into the ground. But as to whether it is environmentally safe or not is still a topic of debate.

Some experts say that sedimentation and small growth inside of pipes will naturally stop exfiltration. But at the same time these sediments and growth can lead to greater loss over time, especially if there is a massive flow that washes away anything that was holding lines together.

Pipe Inspection Results

Tree root infiltrationThere are many different types of vegetation and tree roots that can find their way into the joints between sections of pipe.

It can be strong enough to create an opening in corroded or cast iron pipe.  This will result in a root ball being created in the pipe.

This will obstruct the flow through the pipe.  The downtime created as a result of an unexpected breakdown of a pipe can be very expensive.

CCTV pipeline inspection is a method of non-invasive testing.

Pipe Maintenance Decisions
