Video Camera Inspection | Plumbers Arlington, Texas
Benjamin Franklin Plumbing’s plumbers in Arlington, Texas utilize the skills and knowledge of plumbing with both expertise and the latest technology for leak detection, video line pipe inspection and repair.
Among the most valuable tools in the plumbing industry is the compact and flexible video camera. The video camera allows for a visual inspection of drain and sewer lines in real time, and enables plumbing repairs that are faster and more efficient than ever before. The video camera inspection enables the plumbers in Arlington, Texas to determine the condition inside the pipe, as well as the cause of any existing or potential problems. The small fiber optic video camera travels deep within the pipe while projecting the image onto a monitor.
Utilizing a video line inspection will allow the Benjamin Franklin plumbers in Arlington, Texas to precisely locate any line blockage or other problems without digging up your lawn. Drain and sewer line video inspections can be used for drain line problems, such as clogs, cracks or deterioration for example. Video line inspection is also invaluable for slab leaks, minimizing the destruction of your home’s slab foundation and flooring, and is safe for all types of pipes and plumbing.
In the past, the only solution for diagnosing and repairing issues within underground pipes was by digging them up. Today, the video camera inspection makes that unnecessary. The plumbers in Arlington, Texascan not only see the problem within a pipe, but will enable the plumber to determine its distance from the point of entry. This provides pinpoint accuracy for locating the issue and saves an enormous amount of time.
Furthermore, in most cases, it enables the repair to be provided while preserving the lawn and landscaping. If any digging is involved, it is typically necessary only in a small area.
A video camera inspection can identify problems within a drain or sewer line such as the following:
- Pipe Blockage: There are numerous potential causes of pipe blockage, and the resulting slow drains or sewage backups. Rust accumulations for example, may have reduced the size of the pipe’s interior over time and resulted in flow problems. An additional cause of pipe blockage is a tree root invasion. Tree roots seek out water, and when cracks occur in the pipe, roots can invade the sewer line, growing larger over time, blocking the flow and causing further damage to the sewer line. A video camera inspection will provide a clear picture of the problem.
- Pipe Replacement: Over time pipes will deteriorate due to rust, corrosion and aging. This can result in cracks, bursting or clogging. When problems arise and pipes are potentially past their service life, the video camera inspection provides the plumber with a detailed image of the pipe’s interior and condition that will enable him to make a professional recommendation for the repair. Complete pipe replacement is a costly procedure. Ensure that you consult only with reputable, licensed plumbers in Arlington, Texas.
- Cracked or collapsed pipes: Pipes and sewer lines are subject to damage from ground shifting, the settling of a building and freezing of the ground. In addition, over time the seals where pipes connect can break down, allowing leakage to occur. Water standing in the yard and sluggish drains, or sewage backup may indicate an issue with a sewer line under the lawn. Over time, sewer lines may develop cracks and holes. A video inspection camera allows the plumbers in Arlington, Texas to identify the problem and determine the best solution for repair. Once repair is provided, our plumbers perform an additional free video line inspection to ensure the repair is effective.
- Drain Clogs: When plunging fails to clear a drain clog video camera inspection can locate the problem, whether it is within the drain, or is a problem further down the line such as a sewer line problem.
- Home Inspections: An increasing number of potential home buyers are requiring a video camera inspection of drains and sewer lines, as well as a home inspection of plumbing before purchasing a home. This identifies a home with potentially costly issues in plumbing, and enables the buyer to negotiate a decrease in the price of the home, or to require repairs prior to purchase. On the other hand, it identifies a home whose plumbing is in good condition and provides the buyer with the peace of mind in knowing plumbing repairs are not looming on the horizon.
