We Are Bellingham's Drain Clearing Professionals
When you think about it, it’s really amazing how much plumbing technology has advanced in the last fifty years or so. A century ago, if your home or business owner had a clogged or broken sewer drain, they had few options to fix it that weren’t time consuming and potentially expensive. Back then, the only real solution was to dig up the pipe by hand to find what had happened and where the problem was located, then fix or unclog it by hand. In most instances, the reason for a clogged or stopped up drain was a total mystery unless you picked up a shovel and started digging.
Thanks to modern innovation
Today, however, things have changed significantly. Thanks to modern technology like fiber optics and closed circuit video cameras, a plumber can now use a drain video inspecting and locating camera to see exactly what’s going on inside your pipes without doing any digging at all. By simply running a flexible, waterproof drain camera line into your clogged sewer line, we can see in vivid color what the problem is and even locate exactly where it is. This means that it takes much less time, less effort and costs less money to fix.
All things considered, we are very lucky to live during a time when potentially devastating sewer line problems can be fixed quickly and easily using modern technology. It may cost a few bucks to get your drain inspected by a video camera, but the amount of money you will save by going this route is definitely worth it. By knowing exactly what is causing the problems with your blocked or broken drain, you can save time, money and effort when it’s time to fix things.
Drain Video Recording
Drain video cameras are a recent innovation in sewer cleaning technology that allows our plumbers to see the inside of your pipes without excavating. A small camera located at the end on a flexible cable is pushed through the drain. An image is sent to an attached closed-circuit television unit. Our experienced Bellingham drain cleaners are able to ascertain a lot of information using this method, including where a clog or break is located, what is necessary to fix it and what a drain or pipe is constructed of.
