Video pipe inspection involves the use of a tool called a video snake. It is a small camera attached to a long, thin wire. The wire, with the camera on the end, is fed down into your plumbing system. The video feed is displayed on a screen where the plumber and you can see the problem. This lets us get up close and personal with every inch of your plumbing system. We can find out exactly where any problem is and pinpoint its location. We can also see the type of clog that is in your pipes so we know how to move forward from there.
Video camera pipe inspection can be used for almost any kind of plumbing problem. Here are just a few of them.
