What is a Drain Camera Inspection?

A drain camera inspection is the process of a waterproof camera connected to a flexible cable entering your pipe and sending a live feed to the plumber. Drain camera inspections have served to be critical to providing effective plumbing solutions to homeowners. Without drain camera inspections, we are unable to make an accurate assessment of your pipes. To implement the best solutions possible for your specific problem, we want to be accurate and precise. This service allows us to do that and so much more.

A Non-Invasive Method of Inspecting Your Plumbing

A drain camera is not the only way to examine your pipes. Another method includes ripping up your yard and ripping out the walls or floors of your home. Fortunately, we would never use this method of examining your plumbing because of drain cameras. These small tools have paved the way toward a non-invasive method of inspection plumbing. When inserting the camera into the veins of your home, we get a live feed of what’s in your pipes. It is the information we receive from the video feed that helps us make an informed decision about your plumbing solutions.

Through this non-invasive process, we can spot types of clogs, cracks, leaks, corrosion, tree roots, and more. We don’t have to remove any part of your yard or house. There is no sign that we entered your plumbing with a camera, which helps you save on costs. If you suspect a problem with your plumbing, a drain camera inspection may be required.


Reasons for a Drain Camera Inspection

ASAP Plumbing Experts will use a drain camera inspection for several different situations. The biggest reason is to see the problem with your pipes.

What can a Drain Camera Inspection Detect?

There are many problems your drains can run into, many of which a drain camera inspection can detect. One of the problems a drain camera inspection cannot detect is a leak.
