While we all live such busy lifestyles across Geelong, the Bellarine Peninsula and the Surf Coast, we often forget to take care of the little things that essentially enable our households to run the correct way they should be. It is easy to forget about the pipes and the drains that run underneath the house however, it is a good idea to undertake a drain inspection to see what is down there and catch any issues before they arise.
What is a drain inspection:
A drain inspection involves the action of releasing a camera that is specifically designed to capture a drains interior, down into a drain. This gives your plumber a clear view of any concerns or potential problems that may potentially arise. A drain camera is basically a CCTV system attached to a lengthy bendable rod with a camera attached to its end. Due to the length of the rod it is able to show you footage of the interior view down the complete length of the pipe, making it clearer to your plumber where any issues may be. Recordings are able to be captured with the camera for future playback or for the interest of home owners. This comes in handy for plumbers as they are then able to survey the images with precision. Modern drain cameras can capture the inside of the drain in high quality vision and your experienced plumber will be able to express their expertise by explaining the images. As well as clarifying what is able to be done to improve the drain.
Common Problems Uncovered In Drain Inspections:
- Blocked drains
- Collapsed pipes
- Broken down pipe lining

- Broken, cracked and squashed drains
- Damaged connections
- Tree root intrusion (the growth of roots from nearby trees in through a pipe)
