Before buying a home, or investing in new flooring in your home, it is a good idea to do a thorough inspection of the plumbing, drains, and sewers. In the past, this would involve digging up the pipes to examine them – causing almost as much damage as the potential damage you were trying to avoid. Nowadays innovative technology has taken over, and any reputable Chicago plumbing company will make use of a video system.
New sewer inspection methods
The advance in video technology allows your plumber in Chicago to easily look in your drain for a quick and accurate diagnosis. Without digging up your lawn or disrupting your paving, a camera inspection not only makes diagnosis easier but it also contributes to the most effective corrective action.
When homes are on the market, it is a good practice to inspect drains and sewer pipes – whether you are a seller, a buyer, or a real estate agent.
How does it work?
A tiny video camera is connected to a long cable, enabling it to be introduced into a drain or sewer line. Attached to the camera is a transmitter that communicates electronically with a monitor. Using the signals from the transmitter, plumbers can track the progress of the camera. Accurate data regarding the location and depth of the issue allows your plumbing professional to provide a precise estimate of the cost of repairs.
