Camera Inspections: What’s inside your pipes?

Pipes are often the last thing we think about when it comes to our homes and communities, but as the buildings that we live and work in get older, plumbing problems become more and more likely.

A plumbing system accounts for about 10% of the asset value of any home or building, so when a plumbing system fails it can cause extensive and costly damage. It may sound mundane, but what your pipes are made of matters, and all require maintenance to keep them functioning properly. If your property is 25 years or older, scheduling a CCTV diagnostic inspection of the building’s drain lines means you don’t have to speculate about the condition of your pipes.

“An investment in knowledge pays the best dividend.” – Benjamin Franklin

At SPT, our team of pipe repair specialists conduct thorough inspections of your pipe infrastructure to help you understand the condition of your pipes. The objective is to inspect and identify problematic areas and provide a detailed report with locations and general condition of the pipes.

When do you need a CCTV camera inspection?

  • Slow or Gurgling Drains
  • Repeat Sewer Stoppages
  • Unpleasant Odors
  • Persistent Insect of Rodent Issues
  • Standing Water near Roof or Storm Drains
  • Drain Overflow During Rain

If you see these signs, don’t wait! Root intrusions, cracks, missing pipe, obstructions, ledging, and buildup are the most common pipe problems we find when conducting a pipe and sewer camera inspection. Conducting a pipe camera inspection and diagnosis will give you peace of mind that you will not have a plumbing emergency and it allows you to build a solid foundation for planning for the future of your pipes.

Benefits of performing a CCTV inspection

  • Identify potential sewer and drain problems, including roof and storm drain
  • Verify plumbing location and depth
  • Verify pipe system material and integrity
  • Document condition of system, including root intrusion
  • Enable pipe maintenance planning
  • Prevent pipe emergencies and catastrophic failures

Every camera inspection from SPT includes a detailed report with links to the video footage, so our customers can see the condition of their pipes and make an informed decision. We document the location, depth, and pipe materials and provide a mapped diagram of the pipe system. Using an easy-to-understand rating system, we assess the buildup and condition of each pipe section with grades of excellent, good/normal, fair, poor or failing. Our expert technicians will provide recommendations for a preventive maintenance plan to extend the life of your pipes.
