What is a CCTV Drain Camera?

Modern technique to rightly identify blockage issues

When it comes to a blocked drain in Adelaide you need an expert. There are many factors which may be causing your blocked drain and the last thing you want, or need, is a quick fix only to have that dreaded blocked drain continue to re-occur on your property – wasting your time and money.

At Right Now Plumbing our Adelaide plumbers have access to CCTV drain camera technology and high powered hydro-jets to adequately clear and clean your Adelaide blocked drain, no matter the cause.

What is a CCTV Drain Camera?

A CCTV (closed circuit television) drain camera makes it possible for your Adelaide plumber to locate the exact location and cause of a blocked drain and to ensure the blockage has been completely removed, or to determine if any damage to the pipes has occurred.  A CCTV drain camera is inserted into your drain and is able to reach a length of approximately 100 meters allowing your qualified plumber to see exactly what is going on in your pipes via the use of recordable video with a high resolution. CCTV drain cameras are also equipped with advanced technology in terms of transmitters which allow your plumber to pinpoint exact blockage locations, making life extremely easier if a partial pipe repair or replacement is required.

Why would you need a CCTV Drain Camera Inspection?

A CCTV drain camera inspection would be done in the case of a re-occurring pipe blockage to allow your plumber to inspect the pipes to determine if any damage has been caused which in turn keeps triggering the pipe to become blocked. If the pipe is found to be broken, misaligned, sagged or bellied then any dirt, leaves, or other foreign objects will continue to get stuck in this section. A CCTV drain camera inspection will pinpoint the exact location and reason for your re-occurring blockage to enable your plumber to easily repair or replace only that section of pipework which in many cases eliminates the requirement for a full pipe excavation.

A CCTV drain camera inspection is also a good idea after an extremely stubborn blockage, such as a mass of tree roots, has been removed via the use of the hydro-jet to ensure all obstacles have been cleared and no pipe damage has been caused.

Another reason that you would need a CCTV drain camera inspection is for renovation works to your kitchen, toilet or bathroom. The drain inspection will ascertain if your current drainage network will be able to adequately handle any added pressure from extra fixtures.
