Drain inspections and drain camera services in Calgary
We are the local experts in Drain repair. How did we get that way? By using our drain cameras.
Drain camera are a great way to diagnose blocked drains and improper venting systems. Our plumbers can go over the symptoms of why your drains are acting up, but you won’t get the whole story the way a CCTV drain camera inspection cam. John The Plumber Calgary is one of the only companies around that uses the drain camera technology.
The main advantage to using a CCTV drain camera to diagnose your plumbing issues is how much money it can save you.
Using a drain camera allows our plumbers to find out exactly what they are up against. The camera will go into the mainline drain and help the plumber determine if you have a simple blocked drain or if you may have a more serious issue.
Let’s use this as an example. You have a blocked drain that is causing your basement floor drain to back up on to your floor. If you choose to call just any plumber to your home, chances are they will only use an auger and then move on. If you have done this then you may have noticed that the problem returns in a few months and you have to pay again to fix the issue.
Plumbing companies don’t give warranty to blocked drains because 90% of the time it’s caused by the homeowners activities. But what happens if they aren’t? Most of the time, the inside of the pipes may be so corroded that it will grab onto every single thing that passes through it. This causes build up over time and when that happens you will get blocked drains in your home.
On more example is if your pipes are curved or have a dip in them under the ground. With time these pipes can move and shift with the ground. When your house was built, builders may not have compacted the soil well enough underneath your piping. The end result, a dip in your pipes.
In the above image you can see the low area where sediment and other lovely things that pass through your drains will get trapped and cause bigger issues and bigger blockages. The third one is the dip we are referring to. In the image example you can see how things will begin to pile up at the lowest point over time. If only cleaned with a simple auger this problem will start to block up again shortly after the quick fix. A John The Plumber drain camera can help determine this issue quickly and fix the issue the correct way. This will stop you from having to call a plumber every few months to fix the continuing blockage in your drain. A fix can be found immediately and resolve your block drain once and for all.
