A CCTV (closed circuit TV) is a drain camera used to perform full pipe and drain inspections. This is important as problems areas are often missed when a CCTV isn’t used and further damage can be caused. With this tool it is easy to get a clear picture of what is going on inside your plumbing system and the guesswork can be taken out of discovering and repairing a blocked or broken drain.
How does it work?
A high definition and waterproof camera, that is located on the end of a cable, is pushed down the drainage system to gain eyes inside the drain. The camera displays a live image on a monitor and is then used by an expert to thoroughly inspect the drainage system. Once the issue is identified, an appropriate solution can be offered. For example, if a blockage is found an appropriate course of action would be to use high pressure water to remove it. Alternatively, if there is a crack, then it can be easily fixed with pipe relining. On the rare occasion that new drainage systems are needed, we at Sydney Blocked Drains are also expertly qualified to perform this.
What are the benefits?
There are many benefits of CCTV drain inspections. The camera can identify jammed drains, cracked or broken drains, tree root obstruction, squashed pipes, pipe deterioration, failed pipe-lining or foreign objects causing a blockage. Alternatively, a drain inspection can be used to map out the drainage pipes throughout a property.
As the camera is designed to quickly and effectively find any issues within the plumbing, an inspection can save a lot of time and money. It is easy to get on top of any potential issues ahead of time and problems can be rectified before they become any worse. An inspection is a great way to assess the condition of your drains, to give you an idea of what you are working with. Furthermore, any unnecessary digging or excavation is avoided, so lawns and gardens can stay intact.
One of the biggest benefits is that a drain inspection can offer a permanent solution. This again saves time and money but also gives you a peace of mind knowing that the job has been taken care of properly. Once a problem has been correctly identified, it can be correctly rectified, meaning that less issues are caused down the track and you won’t have to call out another serviceman in a weeks’ time.
