Why it’s a smart idea to get a CCTV drain inspection?
A periodic drain inspection is a great idea for all homeowners, especially if you’re noticing that it takes longer for the kitchen sink to empty or water gradually builds up around your ankles in the shower. CCTV drain camera inspections will allow your plumber to get a clear idea of what is causing the drainage problems and also exactly where the issue is occurring.
Common drain issues frequently uncovered during a CCTV pipe inspection can include:
- Tree root intrusion - tree roots can quickly follow the ample water and nutrient source escaping from a small crack into the pipe causing a significant blockage in a matter of weeks.
- Cracks or breaks in the drain - any damage to the pipe, even very small, can cause food scraps, sewage, and other debris to catch, gradually blocking the drain.
- Crushed drains or pipe collapse - due to heavy machinery travelling over the pipe
- Debris build-up - items such as leaves, dirt, food scraps, combined with oil, grease and fat washed down the drain can create a solid, smelly, slimy clog in the drain.
- Misaligned drain joins - over time ground movement can cause drains to become slightly off at the join, letting dirt in and disturbing the smooth flow of the sewage or stormwater.
Older homes and homes recently renovated are most at risk, however, any home regardless of age can suffer from blocked drains.
Clearing and repairing the drain
Depending on what the CCTV camera inspection uncovers our plumbers may use a range of methods to clear the drain, as well as repair the drain to prevent the problem from reoccurring in your plumbing systems.
- Electric eel or drain snake
- Water jetter or jet rodder - using high-pressure water to clear the drain
- Plumbers plunger
Using no-dig pipe repairs we can fix the damaged drain without needing to excavate large areas of your property, reducing disruption and often repair costs.
- Pipe relining - trenchless drain repairs which create a smooth, long-lasting section of pipe inside the old, damaged one.
- Pipe patching - used to repair smaller sections of broken or cracked pipe.
Plumbing Tip - Routine drain cleaning can reduce the likelihood of blocked drains.
