What Is Video Camera Pipe Inspection?

Considering the vast amount of piping that makes up any given plumbing system, it is unsurprising to discover that water leaks are among the most common of all problems that homeowners encounter with their plumbing systems. Of course, pinpointing the source of any such leaks can be quite difficult, as the majority of piping in residential plumbing systems is hidden from view. The reclusive nature of the pipe can prove to be quite problematic, as, depending upon the size of the leak, it may take homeowners some time to even realize that there is a problem to begin with. If you suspect that you have a leak in your plumbing system, consider scheduling professional video camera pipe inspection in Suffolk, VA. This is just one service that House Call Company excels at.

How It Works

Like many great ideas, video camera pipe inspection is quite simple in theory, if not in practice. A flexible rod is fed into the plumbing system, and this rod is topped with a small video camera. As the rod is fed through the pipes in your system, the video camera at its end sends back a video feed in real time. This feed is reviewed on a monitor by your plumber, allowing him or her to guide the rod properly while thoroughly inspecting the interior condition of your plumbing system. In some cases, the video may be saved for further review.
