What is a CCTV Drain Camera?
CCTV is short for closed circuit television and the CCTV drain camera is used to quickly locate any drain blockages.
The CCTV Drain Camera is an expensive piece of plumbing equipment and utilises the latest in technology to provide the best possible results when dealing with blockages in drains that could be located anywhere in the network of drains and pipes.
The camera provides a wide-angled view as well as video capability to record the findings to DVD if required. It provides an accurate assessment of the situation and ultimately a more cost effective repair of your blocked drain.
Why Would You Pay Extra to Use a CCTV Drain Camera?
By clearing a blocked drain or pipe with traditional methods, such as high pressure water blasting, you may only temporarily clear the blockage giving you several weeks or even months of free flowing drainage.
However if the blockage is caused by tree roots or damage to pipes and the initial blockage is simply pushed through the piping then it will only be a matter of time before the blockage reoccurs causing more expense and inconvenience.
With the use of the CCTV Drain Camera the area of the blockage can be pin pointed, the culprit can be identified and then the correct course of action can be taken to rectify the situation.
This may simply involve the high pressure water jetting to dislodge the blockage, but it may require repair of damaged drain pipes from tree root infiltration or compaction.
Quite simply by using the CCTV camera you can take the guess work out of blocked drains and avoid unnecessary digging to locate the source of any damage.
The CCTV camera is sent down the drain to allow the plumber to see exactly what the cause of the blockage is by viewing inside the drain itself.
Once this inspection is performed the plumber can then show you exactly what is causing the blockage and also advise on the best course of action to follow to clear the blockage.
This is a win win situation and will ultimately save you time, inconvenience and money.
The CCTV Drain Camera can be used for all blocked drain situations including:
- blocked sewers
- blocked stormwater drains
- blocked kitchen sinks
- blocked toilets
- blocked showers
No matter where the blockage is the CCTV Drain Camera can be used to locate it.
