All drains and drain pipes will get clogged with debris or material eventually. Over time, they will also deteriorate. The key is to schedule regular inspection and maintenance to keep minor issues from becoming emergency repair situations. Reid Brothers Plumbing & Heating specializes in drain pipe inspection, maintenance and repair but we prefer to keep your system from needing major repairs by keeping it clean and free of debris.
Video cameras have become one of the most valuable tools in the plumbing business. Specially made fiber optic cameras allow for a visual inspection of underground sewer lines and other piping to determine the condition of the inside of the pipe. A flexible rod with a high-resolution video camera on its tip is inserted into the pipe for inspection. Video images are transmitted to the camera operator and can be saved onto a videotape for a permanent record. Radio transmitters on the camera record the depth and physical location from the surface so that defects and obstructions can be corrected cost effectively.
Video cameras have also been used to locate lost jewelry and other valuables, as well as animals that have become lost or trapped in pipes.
