Sometimes drain pipes become blocked for reasons that are unclear. When an issue cannot be resolved through other troubleshooting methods such as plunging and high-pressure jet cleaning, a plumber may then use a CCTV camera to inspect the system. All manner of objects often found to be the cause of drain clogs, from toys, building materials, clothes and everything in between.
Finding Leaks & Damage
It’s not uncommon for pipes and drains to develop weaknesses or become damaged or cracked due to external forces such as nearby building works, even heavy vehicles and even from land shifting over time. Sometimes a CCTV Camera is sent into the drain to determine the cause of these issues.
Tree roots can wreak havoc on drain pipes and drainage systems. They are common to blame for both blockages and damaged pipes which can occur very deep inside drainage systems and as such, CCTV cameras may be required to diagnose the source of the problem.
