A homeowner’s worst nightmare is waking up in the morning to discover flooding in their yard or standing water in their home. Flooding is usually the result of a broken or burst pipe. Pipes can fail for many reasons. Luckily, there is an easy way to prevent this nightmare scenario from happening: crawler cameras.
How Do Crawler Cameras Work?
Crawler camera are robotic camera systems specifically made to remotely run through your pipes checking for any damage or underlying problems. This involves inserting a remote-controlled robot equipped with a camera into your sewer or drain line. The camera is then controlled by one of our technicians in our state of the art video inspection unit. There is a transmitter on top of the camera that sends a signal to our technician above ground. This allows us to determine where the line is going as well as to pinpoint the exact location and problem of a broken or clogged pipe.
When we use video inspection on a sewer line, we record what we see and can produce a DVD or digital copy of the procedure. This allows you to see the problem for yourself, and it allows us to provide an accurate estimate for your repair. By allowing crawler cameras into your pipes, small problems can be identified and repaired before they grow into large problems.
The Repair Solutions We Can recommend Because Of Camera Inspections
Often one of the biggest reasons for pipes bursting that can lead to flooding is from tree roots. Once the tree roots wrap around or enter the pipe, they can crush it to get to the water. By having crawler cameras, we are able to see the beginning stages of this happening. We will use new technologies to flush the roots out of the system and away from the pipe before the worst can happen. By regularly having our crawler cameras inspect your pipes, the risk of a burst pipe leading to flooding in your home is less likely.
