Property owners rejoice. Recent advances in technology has made it possible for plumbing contractors to actually uncovering potential problems before they become major catastrophes. This is exciting news especially if you happen to own an older home or building, or are currently experiencing the warning signs that a major issue is about to arise. For example SPT Pipe, an industry leader in the field of advanced plumbing technologies highly suggests that you hire a reputable company to perform a water main investigation in Mission Hills, CA on an annual basis.
Even if your property was built within the last twenty years or so having this quick and easy procedure performed each year is an excellent investment. It will absolutely save you time, stress, and of course a significant amount of money in the long run. Water mains are at the top of the list when it comes to plumbing repairs. Discovering minor problems while they are still easy and cost effective to fix is a whole heck of a lot better than a major system blowout, and the tens of thousands of dollars that are associated with repairing them.
At this point you must be curious as to how the water main investigation or inspection works. The plumbing technician will show up at your property with a bunch of high-tech electronic gadgets. He or she will install a robotic video camera into the water main through an easy to reach access point such as a fire hydrant. The robotic video camera crawls through the water main taking video of each and every inch of the pipe. The footage is transmitted in real time to the technician’s on site video screen.
Once the robotic video camera has recorded the entire interior surface area of the water main pipe the technician is able to determine if there are any current problems. In addition, the technician will be able to tell if any obvious problems will take place in the near future based on the current condition of the pipe. The footage is saved so that the plumbing contractor has a baseline to compare the status of the water main from one year to the next.
If there happen to be any major repairs required a copy of this recording will come in extremely handy when dealing with your insurance company. Once the video is carefully reviewed the plumbing contractor will be able to determine the best course of action to take if repairs need to be made. Hopefully your system is in great working order, but if not it is always better to be aware of the situation so that you can handle it in a timely manner as opposed to in an emergency situation.
