The majority of your plumbing is hidden. From a network of pipes in your walls to the lines running underground, your plumbing systems can be exceedingly difficult to assess — even for the pros! Luckily, technology has advanced to allow us to be more precise and have more knowledge about your plumbing problems.
Vern’s Plumbing wants the best for Culpeper, and that means the very best plumbing technology. Our team uses camera inspections to get a clear, first-hand look at your plumbing problems, even when they’re underground or inside a pipe. Gone are the days of excavating your yard just to look at a pipe’s condition. Now, we can get eyes on the corrosion, deterioration, crack, clog or other repair plaguing your home before recommending the best solution.
If you’re wondering how we cram a Canon camera into a 3-inch pipe, we don’t! Our team uses specialized cameras to get into all the tiny, flexible areas inside your pipes. An inspection camera is about as big as the end of a hose. It’s attached to a flexible, wire-like hose that can move and turn with the pipes.
When our plumbers arrive at your home, they’ll look for an access point to use for the camera. If you have sewer cleanouts, this is a prime entry point for a sewer inspection. For other pipes, the team will make a tiny hole with minimal disruption to the home. They can then feed the camera into the system, sending the camera into the pipes in question.
Next, the technicians will watch a screen at ground level that displays the camera footage in real-time. They can move the camera around inside the pipes to look at concerns about deterioration or to determine the material your pipes are made of. They might also use this tactic to find a tough clog stuck in your pipes!
Once we have an accurate idea of what’s going on, we can give you an honest and precise plan of action to fix your problem!
Camera inspections are one of the most important tools that we have at our disposal. They help our team do our jobs better, but they also bring our Culpeper homeowners many benefits:
No matter what your plumbing problem is, it can be extremely useful to get eyes on the problem before taking any action.
