Camera Inspections: A St Cloud Plumbing Contractors Most Useful Tool

If you’re having trouble with the drains and/or pipes that make up the plumbing system in your home or office, it may be time to call in a St Cloud Plumbing Contractor. The deeper the problem lies in your pipes, the more serious it likely is. If your drains are slow or are backing up and regular plunging doesn’t help or if the problem is chronic, it’s in your best interest to bring in a professional St. Cloud plumber. But rest assured, the tools of the plumbing trade have come a long way, and the plumbing repairs you need are likely to be much less invasive than you imagine.

A Noninvasive Peek into Your Plumbing

Whether your plumbing problem stems from your sewer line (the pipes underneath your yard that carry dirty water out of your home and into the city’s sewer main) or from the pipe’s within your walls and/or under your floors, your plumber is going to need to do some investigating to figure out where the problem lies. Inspecting your pipes with a camera allows the plumbing professional to get a bird’s eye view of what’s going on. Further, camera inspections allow the plumber to look for potential problems that could be lurking in your pipes and to address these issues before they morph into something that’s far more serious, costly, time-consuming, and inconvenient.

The Upside of Camera Inspections

When an experienced St. Cloud plumber examines your home or office’s plumbing with camera inspection, there are a variety of benefits:

  • Accuracy – Without cameras to inspect your plumbing system, plumbers are forced to engage in guesswork, which often includes the invasive disassembly of pipes in the search process. When cameras are implemented, on the other hand, your plumber can look around in your pipes and pinpoint where the problem lies. A camera inspection helps take trial and error out of the equation and allows the plumber to focus directly on the issue at hand.
  • Less Labor Intensive – When based on guesswork, identifying the plumbing problem typically involves labor-intensive maneuvers – that often require putting holes in walls and floors and/or demolishing the yard. With the advent of camera inspections, however, much of this demolition work can be avoided, and your experienced St. Cloud plumber will focus on the exact location of the actual problem, thereby minimizing labor and overall upheaval.
  • Proactive – Camera inspections allow plumbers to be proactive when it comes to your plumbing system. The camera allows the plumbing professional to actually see what’s going on in there and to identify any wear-and-tear, damage, and/or blockages that could potentially cause further damage. As such, your plumber will be able to offer you suggestions for how best to curtail damage and to keep your plumbing running smoothly.

When It’s Time For A Camera Inspection

While camera inspections can be useful for a variety of plumbing issues, there are certain plumbing problems that are especially likely to benefit from this professional service:

  • If your drains have become chronically slow, you could have a partial blockage somewhere in your pipes, and a camera inspection is a great way to identify exactly where that blockage is located. By pinpointing the location, your plumber will be better able to effectively and efficiently remedy the problem.
  • If you can see or smell mold and mildew in your home, you probably have a hidden plumbing leak. Such leaks lead not only to mold and mildew, which are unhealthy but also to costly structural damage that requires extremely invasive and inconvenient repairs. If you have mold and/or mildew, it’s time to call in the professionals.
  • If you smell sewage either inside or outside your home, you could have a crack in your sewer line, which needs professional attention. With camera inspection, your St. Cloud plumber will be able to assess the damage and determine the best path forward. In fact, there are a variety of modern remedies, including trenchless sewer repairs, that are much less invasive, costly, and time-consuming than ever before.
