The best way to detect a plumbing problem is physically seeing it. Knowing there is a problem with your industrial pipes can be difficult since all pipes are underground. The best solution for visually evaluating industrial pipes is using a video inspection. The first thing you will want to know is what a video inspection is.

What is a Video Inspection?

An industrial video pipe inspection includes placing a small mobile camera into the pipelines. The camera works by moving within the pipeline on a sturdy wheeled base. During this process, the inspector controls the camera through a remote, similar to a remote-control car. The camera sends back video images that you and the inspector can see on a screen.

Using an industrial video inspection allows for visual inspection of the deepest parts of the pipeline. The visual inspection locates areas where the pipe has been damaged, broken, cracked, or clogged. An industrial video inspection is non-invasive, which allows the inspector to see the issues without digging up multiple areas. When the inspector knows exactly where the problem is, the inspector can concentrate on the area only.

Remote Areas

Like mentioned above, video inspections allow repair teams to see into remote pipeline areas. The ability to see remote areas gives the inspector a clear picture of an industrial pipe. When the inspector has a clear picture, it is easier to identify problems. If remote areas were not accessible, then a problem could be missed.

Efficiency and Speed

A regular industrial video inspection increases efficiency and speed of maintenance. Since a plumber can identify a problem more quickly, the problem is able to be fixed in less time. Along with speed, efficiency is better since the plumber knows exactly where the problem is. With video inspections, less big issues will occur which saves you money.

Non-Invasive

An industrial video inspection is the least non-invasive pipe inspection. There is no digging required for the plumber to identify the problem. No digging means you will not have to worry about cleaning up a mess or fixing the landscape.

Cost-Effective

Finding a problem using a video inspection does not require expensive digging. Since no digging or big equipment is required, the cost of video inspection is much less. In a traditional inspection digging would be required and you would end up paying more and wasting time.

Maintenance Cost Reduction

A video inspection is a maintenance tool.  As such, having a regular schedule video inspection is important. Regular video inspection ensures lower maintenance cost because it allows you to know of a problem with your pipes. A video inspection also reduces the number of fixes since it catches small issues early.

Varying Size

Pipes of varying sizes can be inspected using the same camera. Since a video inspection requires the same equipment, no additional cost occurs. Traditional inspections typically require more equipment which makes it more expensive.

Careful Examination

In traditional inspections, the examination can only occur onsite. Recording of the inspection allows for a careful examination. When a plumber is able to perform a careful examination, he catches problems before they become bigger issues. Therefore, fewer major complications occur, meaning there is less mess to clean.
