What’s Up with Video Pipe Inspections?


Video pipe inspections may sound a little strange if you haven’t already had this service. Rest assured, we aren’t strapping a Go-Pro camera to a flexible pipe and shoving it down your kitchen sink drain.

Video pipe inspections are a service that our team offers to help us address some of the issues that may pop up in your plumbing systems. Maybe you have a drain blockage and aren’t sure whether it is in your drain or your sewer line. Or perhaps you have a leak or damage somewhere in your pipes but aren’t sure where the issue is. With video pipe inspection, our expert plumbers can get these problems identified, located, and addressed.

What is a Video Pipe Inspection?

When you have a problem with your Andover plumbing systems, you should get it addressed sooner than later. Video pipe inspections can make getting this done much easier.

A video pipe inspection involves a professional plumber coming to your home with a special piece of equipment, usually a high-resolution, water-proof and durable video camera, which is connected to a flexible scope, allowing it to maneuver around bends and curves in your plumbing.

Paired with a small LED-light, the scope is able to be inserted into your pipes and drains and used to hunt down whatever the problem is that you are dealing with as it provides your plumbing professional with a live feed of what is going on in the pipeline.
