The equipment that plumbers use to clear drains and other repair jobs has come a long way. Professionals still use tried-and-true tools like plungers and wrenches, but technological advances have put power into their hands that allows them to perform jobs faster and better than ever before. One of the greatest advances now in regular use is the video camera inspection equipment, which has made drain repair work much easier and more effective.

Video camera technology: how it benefits work on drains
The standard video inspection kit consists of a long, flexible fiber optic cable on which a miniaturized video camera and powerful LED light are mounted. Plumbers feed the camera end down into a drain (or other plumbing access point) and send it down into the pipes. The other end of the cable attaches to a monitoring system that allows the plumbers to see in real-time what the camera is observing. The cable is usually long enough to reach all the way from a drain through the full sewer line out to the street: there’s almost no area of the drainage system the plumbers cannot access using the video camera.
The plumbers use the information sent from the video camera for a variety of purposes. If they are seeking for a hidden leak, the camera will show them not only the exact location of the leak, but also its size and what may have caused it. This makes it simple for the plumbers to access the leak with the least amount of disruption to your home’s building material or landscaping possible, and then to fix the leak quickly.
Another way the plumbers can use the video camera’s information is to diagnose drain clogging issues and problems from deposits along the inside of the pipes. Plumbers can see if the pipes are suffering from a build-up of organic material, developing corrosion, or if hard water deposits are interfering with flow. The plumbers will then have a definite idea of the problems they need to address and how to go about fixing them.
