Sewer and Drain Inspection Camera
Tampa Plumber – Sewer & Drain Video Inspection
Toilets that are slow to flush, standing water in a kitchen sink, laundry drain backing up; recurring sewer line and drain clogs can have many causes. From pipe corrosion, root intrusion within the sewer system, scale and sludge build up, to a belly in the drain line; the one sure way to get “eyes” on the problem is with video camera inspection of your sewer and drain lines. EVERYDAYPLUMBER.com can provide you with a comprehensive video camera inspection service to diagnose your issues. Within the camera is an electronic locating device. Paired with the locating wand, our plumbers can locate exactly where the issues are, visually show you where the failure points, and walk you through the best solution to suit your needs and budget. Depending on the severity of the problem, the condition of the pipes, and the location of the trouble area, a spot repair may be feasible. Often times, especially in older properties with cast iron, clay, and orangeburg pipe, the video inspection may reveal extensive damage throughout the sewer and drain system. This will require a more comprehensive sewer and drain rehabilitation that includes all the drains and lines under your property running to the municipal sewer connection.
Drain Camera – Tampa Plumbing Inspection Video
Below you will find an example of the comprehensive view a sewer inspection camera can give on the condition of the drain and sewer lines in your home or business.
During this plumbing inspection the camera was used after attempting to clear a very difficult clogged kitchen drain. Entering through a kitchen drain pipe the video reveals that the cast iron pipe has been in service for may years and is in very poor condition. Further down the drain line the age and damage to the drain pipe is even more evident. Rust build-up, channels in the pipe, scale, and excessive grease and sludge can be seen. This type of damage and build-up reduces the diameter of the pipe causing repeated drain clogs, more difficulty in using conventional drain cleaning methods, and eventual total failure of the drain.
Tampa Plumber – Ultra-Sonic Leak Detection
“Mystery Leaks” can be some of the most frustrating plumbing issues to recognize and repair. If left undetected hidden leaks can lead to high utility bills, cosmetic and structural damage, mold intrusion, and even affect the integrity of a structure’s foundation. Has your water bill been unusually high lately? Can you hear water running with no faucets or appliances being used? Do you have damp spots on walls or floors? Have you noticed mold or mildew on carpeting or discolored grout lines on flooring? You may have a hidden water leak in your home or business. Sometimes even hot or cold spots on tile, concrete, or terrazzo floors may indicate an unseen water leak. EVERYDAYPLUMBER.com employs the most state-of-the-art ultra-sonic leak detection equipment Tampa plumbers have to offer. Our ultra-sonic leak detection experts will quickly and accurately locate hidden water leaks in your home or business. Whether it is under the concrete slab, behind a wall, or in an underground pipe outside of your home, our leak detection experts can pinpoint your problem. Often times in properties with older copper or galvanized steel water supply pipes, initial pinhole leaks can be a sign of more problems in the future. Just as the pipe failed in the one location due to age and corrosion, the rest of the pipes in your home or business are in nearly the same condition. Fixing one leak can lead to another, and another, and so on. This cascading affect can lead to multiple costly repairs. You may want to consider a water re-pipe of your property. Re-piping with modern CPVC is a more comprehensive solution than trying to maintain older pipes with repeated spot repairs.
