Why Do Plumbers Use a CCTV Drain Camera?

We at Burns Plumbing use CCTV drain cameras for their precision and efficiency in inspecting drain and sewer lines. This non-invasive approach lets our plumbing professionals visually inspect the inside of pipes without extensive excavation. It is an effective method to detect blockages, pipe damage, and tree root intrusions. Our high-resolution CCTV camera technology yields clear imagery of the drain’s interior, enabling us to quickly diagnose issues and determine the best course of action for repair or maintenance.

What Can the CCTV Drain Inspection Camera Detect?

Burns Plumbing’s CCTV drain inspection cameras are equipped to identify a variety of plumbing issues, including those in stormwater pipes. These cameras detect blockages from debris or tree roots, cracks in pipe joints, and other irregularities causing drainage problems. The CCTV survey provides a comprehensive view of the sewer and stormwater pipes, enabling precise problem area location and efficient planning for repairs or maintenance.

Burns Plumbing utilises CCTV inspection equipment to effectively identify damaged or corroded pipes within the plumbing system. Corrosion or damage can be due to age, material degradation, or chemical reactions. The CCTV camera produces detailed images of the drain pipe or sewer, allowing plumbers to assess damage extent and plan appropriate repairs or replacements. Following the detection of such issues, we offer pipe relining services as a durable and less invasive solution to repair damaged or corroded pipes without the need for extensive excavation.

Collapsed pipes can significantly disrupt a plumbing system, usually resulting from external pressure or severe blockages. CCTV drain inspections are vital for non-invasively identifying such collapses, allowing for quick and effective repair strategies that prevent further damage and maintain system integrity.

Blocked pipes, commonly caused by debris buildup or foreign object accumulation, can lead to wastewater flow disruptions. Utilising CCTV drain inspections helps in precisely locating these blockages, enabling swift and effective clearance to restore normal flow and prevent potential overflows in the plumbing system.

Tree root infestation in suburban area pipes often occurs when roots penetrate pipe joints or cracks searching for water. This can lead to severe blockages or pipe damage. CCTV drain inspections are essential in detecting these intrusions early, enabling prompt action for root removal and pipe repair. Early detection is crucial in averting more serious, costly repairs.

Improper installation of plumbing pipes can cause problems like leaks, blockages, and inefficient water flow. CCTV drain inspections are invaluable for identifying such issues. They provide a thorough visual inspection of the plumbing system, revealing improperly fitted joints, incorrect pipe sizing, or other installation errors. Early identification allows for necessary corrective measures, ensuring the plumbing system operates efficiently.

The Benefits of Using a CCTV Drain Inspection Camera

The utilisation of a CCTV drain inspection camera offers numerous benefits in managing and maintaining plumbing systems:

  1. Accurate Diagnosis: CCTV cameras provide clear, real-time visuals of the inside of pipes, allowing for precise identification of issues like blockages, cracks, or root intrusions. This accuracy is crucial for effective problem-solving and avoids the need for guesswork.

  2. Non-Invasive Method: One of the significant advantages of CCTV drain inspections is their non-invasive nature. Unlike traditional methods that might require digging or cutting into walls, CCTV inspections can diagnose issues without disrupting the property, saving both time and potential repair costs.

  3. Preventive Maintenance: Regular CCTV inspections can help identify potential problems before they escalate. This proactive approach is invaluable for preventive maintenance, helping to extend the lifespan of plumbing systems and avoiding costly emergency repairs.

  4. Cost-Effective: By providing a quick and precise diagnosis, CCTV inspections can significantly reduce labor and repair costs. They help pinpoint the exact problem, ensuring that only the necessary work is done.

  5. Safety: Using CCTV cameras for drain inspection enhances safety by reducing the need for direct human contact with potentially hazardous materials or confined spaces.

  6. Detailed Reporting: Burns Plumbing’s use of CCTV technology often includes detailed reporting, which provides a record of the plumbing system’s condition. These reports can be useful for future reference, property evaluations, or in deciding on long-term solutions.

  7. Time Efficiency: CCTV inspections are typically quicker than traditional inspection methods. They provide immediate visual feedback, allowing plumbers to quickly assess the situation and decide on the best course of action.

  8. Comprehensive Inspection: CCTV cameras can reach areas that are otherwise inaccessible, providing a comprehensive view of the entire plumbing system. This thorough inspection ensures that no problem areas are overlooked.

What Equipment is Involved in the CCTV Inspection

The effectiveness of a CCTV drain inspection relies heavily on the use of specialised equipment. Each component plays a crucial role in ensuring a thorough and accurate inspection:

These are the heart of the CCTV inspection process. The cameras used in these inspections are specifically designed to be waterproof, allowing them to navigate through wet conditions found in drains and sewers. They provide high-resolution images and video footage, giving a clear view of the interior state of the pipes, including any cracks, blockages, or other anomalies.

Access rods are flexible, allowing the waterproof cameras to navigate through the twists and turns of the plumbing system. They are instrumental in guiding the camera to areas that are difficult to reach, ensuring a comprehensive inspection. These rods can be extended to cover significant distances within the pipes, providing access to otherwise inaccessible areas.

Crawlers are remote-controlled vehicles equipped with cameras. They are used in larger pipes where manual navigation might be challenging. These motorised units can move the camera equipment through the pipes, providing a stable platform for capturing clear images. They are particularly useful for inspections of main sewer lines and larger stormwater pipes.

In situations where the pipe is fully submerged and visual inspection is not possible, sonar units become essential. They work by emitting sound waves and analysing the echoes received, creating an image or profile of the pipe’s interior. This technology is particularly useful in inspecting pipes with heavy flow or blockages that obscure the camera’s view.

  1. Recurring Blockages: Frequent blockages in your drains or toilets can indicate deeper issues within your pipes that require professional inspection.

  2. Slow Drainage: If water is draining slowly from sinks, showers, or bathtubs, it could be a sign of a blockage or damage in the pipes.

  3. Unpleasant Odours: Persistent bad smells emanating from your drains might be a sign of a deeper issue within your sewer system.

  4. Strange Noises: Gurgling or bubbling sounds from your drains can indicate a problem, such as a blockage or a break in the pipe.

  5. Water Damage: Signs of water damage or dampness in your home, such as mould, mildew, or water stains, can be indicative of leaking or broken pipes.

  6. Lush Patches in Garden: Unusually lush or green areas in your garden could be due to a leaking underground pipe.
