Why Do Plumbers Use Drain Cameras In Their Work?

If you find yourself dealing with recurring blocked brain problems, even after using a plunger to clear it multiple times, the problem is likely more complex. Stubborn drain blocks cannot be removed using these basic tools. Only a licensed plumber like us at SPS Plumbers St George can tackle these tasks professionally and efficiently.

We use the latest technology in our work and make sure that our clients get quick and efficient services. When it comes to drain blockages, determining where the blockage and what is causing it is essential. It is why we use CCTV drain cameras in our work.

What is a CCTV Drain Camera?

This minute camera is attached to a long cable which is inserted into the problematic blocked drain. It removes all the guesswork from the job, and we can get a clear idea of what is causing the blockage. Experienced plumbers undergo extensive training to use various equipment in their work. They are trained to use these CCTV drain cameras, and it helps to detect the block without any troublesome digging.

CCTV drain cameras are perfect for locating blockages when you face this problem regularly.

It is also the right piece of equipment to use when the location or cause of the drain blockage is unknown. Sometimes the plumber may suspect that the blockage is more severe than they first believed. In all of these situations, using this equipment is the best way to speed up the job.

Causes of Drain Blockages

Many different things can cause recurring drain blockages, such as:

  • Broken or cracked pipe– Various environmental factors, including ground movements or earth compacting, can cause the pipe to crack. Sometimes these issues are caused by incorrect installation as well. If the debris settles inside the pipe, it can prevent the smooth flow of water. The plumber uses the CCTV drain camera to assess precisely how severe the damage is. Based on their assessment, they will provide the best solution to fix the damaged section of the pipe.
  • Sagging pipe- In some settings, soil erosion around the underground pipe can cause it to sag. This prevents the water/solid waste from flowing through the pipe. The plumbers would be able to pinpoint where the sag is and fix it in the best possible way.

High-Grade Drain Block Repairs

Tree root blockages or collapse in a section of the pipe can also cause drain blockages. In some cases, the blocked pipe may require additional repairs, in which case the plumber may recommend pipe relining. Regardless of what has caused the blockage, we at SPS can tackle the job in the best possible way. We are very prompt with responding to clients and make sure that they receive efficient and professional services at all times.
