Even just a few short years ago, plumbing was a lot about guess work. If you had a problem with a sewer line, you used a snake to clean out the pipe. Then you took the wait-and-see approach to determine if you fixed the problem, or if it would be a reoccurring issue.
With today’s technology, plumbers now take the guesswork out of the problem.
Instead of relying on a hunch, a plumber can now use a camera to see where the problem lies, how bad it is, and what it will take to fix it. Using a snake like device with an infrared camera on the tip, a plumber feeds the tube down into the interior of the pipe. Through the camera feed, he can determine what the problem is and the best method of fixing it. Best of all, the camera should be able to indicate exactly where the problem is, reducing the time and cost of digging and searching out the infected areas.
While the infrared camera feed is a great tool to help you save time and money, make sure you rely on a professional plumber for a complete analysis. A reputable plumber will be honest with the information he finds, and will provide you with the best ways to correct the situation and improve it from further damage.
