How Is A Camera Useful For Pipelining And Drain Cleaning Issues?

As technology advances, so does Earthcare’s ability to provide quality service at all levels of drain and septic maintenance. One of our most innovative tools is our video camera inspections due to its ability to cut costs and labor time. Let’s compare the days before and after drain line cameras came into play.

Before Cameras
Diagnosing an obstruction in pipes and septic systems was a guessing game back in the old days. Was it a tree root, was it grease, or maybe sludge that was blocking water flow? Where was the clog? Was a pipe broken or rusted? To find out, technicians would have to dig up the line just to find the problem.  Customers had to pay for excavation and deal with the inconvenience of having their yard inside out for weeks.

Thankfully, technology has provided a better solution. Technicians armed with small video cameras can now “see” inside of underground pipelines. The cameras can pinpoint the exact location of the problem eliminating the need to dig up large areas where the pipes lay. They can also reveal the cause of the obstruction which tells our guys how to proceed with repairs. Whether it’s a minor clog that can be snaked or an invasive tree root that needs to be removed, our technicians can handle everything accordingly without wasting time or energy on trial and error.

Cameras Do More Than Just Diagnose
Of course, preventative maintenance is always better than reactive. In addition to routine maintenance service, Earthcare especially encourages commercial and municipal customers to schedule regular video camera inspections as a preventative measure. Any problems caught sooner rather than later, end up saving lots of money in the long run. For more information or to schedule your video camera inspection, Contact Us.
