Video Inspection

Video Inspection Services

Finding the cause of leaky pipes, slow drains, backed up toilets and perimeter drain issues is hard with the naked eye. Through the use of video inspection cameras complete with locator technology our video inspection services can economically identify the cause of your perimeter and sewer drainage issues.

Our video inspection services can:

  • Pinpoint the exact location where a pipe is broken, whether due to age erosion has set in or a shrub/tree root intrusion is the problem.
  • Find areas of concern before trouble begins which typically causes a buildup that eventually creates a blockage in the line.
  • Why a line repeatedly plugs up for no apparent reason.
  • If you drainage is getting to the City lines.

Our durable and dependable high resolution video inspection cameras include line transmitters and receiver instruments which can transmit the exact location of water lines, water mains, drain lines, man holes, clean outs and septic tanks thus eliminating any guesswork and reduces the damage and time needed if repair is required.

Benefits of Video Inspection

The benefits of doing a video inspection are numerous both for preventative maintenance and affordable troubleshooting.

As the video camera is fed through your piping the technician (and you if you wish to watch) can see the inside of the line and its condition. The video inspection can be recorded for future reference if you wish.

Using video inspection, we can:

  • Examine your lines with a small camera inserted into your drainage or sewer pipes before any digging or damage needs to be done to locate the problem.
  • Find a collapsed pipe underground or hidden under your concrete or blacktop.
  • Locate buried piping connections.
  • Locate and identify any hidden blockages in your lines.
  • Help you develop a preventative maintenance program for your drain lines, sewer lines and plumbing.
  • Avoid unnecessary destruction of your walls, flooring and yard through the locator within our video inspection machine.
  • Saves labour costs and shortens the time required to get your system back up and running in a proper manner.

Video Inspection of Drain Lines

Drainage inspection is important. Over time roots can weave their way into your drainage system, connections can break and piping can fail. By accessing your perimeter drainage through its access points our video inspection of drain lines can provide a wealth of information for troubleshooting a blockage or flooding problem requiring a perimeter drain repair, as a means to plan future general maintenance such as scheduled drain cleaning or budget for drainage replacement in the future.

Video Sewer Inspection

Do you have sewage backing up into your toilet, bathtub or sink? Noticed that your drains are slow to drain or toilets not flushing properly? Then it is time for a video sewer inspection of your sewage lines to find the problem. Our video inspection of sewer lines locates and identifies what the blockage is causing the problem. Maybe the blockage is at the city connection? If it is, we will find it.

Video Plumbing Inspection

Have problems with your plumbing? Video plumbing inspection of plumbing pipes can find broken pipes, leaking pipes and possibly water pressure issues. As a preventive measure, video plumbing inspection can be used to check the condition of your piping and verify plumbing is installed and working properly.

Video Inspection Report

On completion of your video inspection we will prepare a video inspection report with recommendations on if your clogged drain lines could do with a good cleaning with some hydro jetting, needs power snaking or needs replacing.

A video inspection report is an important inspection report to have when you sell your home or one you should ask for when you are considering buying a house. Just let us know before we do this service for you if you would like a DVD copy of the video inspection, or even a link can be emailed to you for you watch anytime.
