What’s the Benefit of a Plumbing CCTV Inspection?

CCTV advantages

To keep your plumbing system in check, consider getting a CCTV inspection done.


When your plumbing system works well you conserve not only precious water, but energy and money, too. Even the slowest of slow drips can waste up to 12 litres of water a month – or 144 litres a year! In order to keep your plumbing system in good working order it’s a good idea to hire a plumber to do a camera inspection of your pipes.  This allows your plumber to access otherwise hard-to-reach areas without disrupting your home or your family’s lifestyle.


CCTV Inspections Prevent Costly Repairs

You wouldn’t think it, but even small leaks in a home plumbing system can lead to thousands of dollars in repairs. If a leak occurs in a water line underneath your home, it can threaten your home’s structural integrity. Leaks can be caused by any of the following: collapsed pipes, blockages, corrosion, invasive tree roots, breaks caused by shifting soil. If a CCTV inspection is not conducted, the plumber has to use a lot of guesswork to locate a problem and therefore cannot give a true estimate for the work required. CCTV inspections give plumbers a more accurate estimate of the damage incurred and thus, the repairwork required.


CCTV Inspections Assess Your Plumbing System Properly

If you’re buying/selling a home, a CCTV inspection is a vital part of a thorough home inspection, giving potential buyers a thorough evaluation of what’s going on below deck. The fibre-optic camera can save the video as a permanent record of the conditions of the plumbing system as they currently stand.


CCTV Inspections Allow for Faster and More Effective Solutions

Dropped a ring, a bracelet or something else equally valuable? A CCTV inspection allows for the speedy search and rescue of your treasured trinkets. When not looking for gold and other valuable objects, CCTV inspections can also quickly find blockages and determine whether or not it is something that can be dissolved with a quick drain cleaning or whether further repairing is required.
