Drain clogs, leaks and overflows damage several commercial and business properties. Most of this damage results from neglecting a regular drain maintenance. If you have timely sewer & drain inspections, these problems can be nipped in the bud before they take the form of a massive disaster. It is always better to prevent a plumbing problem than to fix it.
The implications of a broken drainage system can be catastrophic. It is unfortunate that many home and business owners don’t realize this. If a drain is leaking, it can cause a massive structural damage. The water seeping into the walls can weaken. Damp walls and attics are perfect for molds posing a health hazard as well. And don’t forget the cost of all that repair work!
You can prevent all these issues if you can catch the problems with the drains early enough. A regular drain inspection by a professional plumber here in Altadena, CA, can help you do just that. Our plumbers can inspect the drainage to spot issues before they get out of hand.
Video inspections get the best results
Plumbing has come a long way over the last few years. A modern plumbing professional uses a variety of high-tech technology. We are able to do things that were not thought possible even a few years ago.
Most of the home and business properties have the drainage pipes concealed behind walls. Hence, it can get quite difficult to reach these pipes to see what is happening. In such situations, a video camera comes to rescue.
Equipped with the latest video technology, a plumber can see what is inside a drain. The visual inspections of the drain and sewer pipes help the plumbing professional to locate and visualize the damage. The plumber uses this information to either repair or prevent the damage. Without the video technology, it is difficult to spot these problems.
A timely video inspection can reveal a problem before it becomes a major issue. Many smart home and business owners realize the benefit of getting the visual inspections. It is ideal to get a drain inspection done once a year to stay on top of any potential drainage issue.
What to expect during an inspection?
A drain inspection is performed by a highly trained and experienced plumbing technician in Altadena, CA. The tech will bring several instruments on your property to help him/her during the inspection. The most important equipment is a waterproof, high-resolution camera. It is mounted on top of a thin, flexible cord called the drain snake.
The plumber will then insert this flexible cord into one of your drains and monitor the movements using the video signals on his/her computer. The flexible cord is long enough to traverse through your entire drainage pipe. The real-time pictures from the inside of the drain pipe reveal the condition of the pipes. The inspection can reveal any major or minor problem, and the plumbing technician will make a note of it. After the inspection, you can decide to take care of the issue, and we are happy to help you make the decision.
