When was the last time you had your plumbing checked? When it was checked last, was it done by a young man with a plunger and a confident smile? If so, it might be time to consider video pipe inspection.

This may sound like an out-there idea, but it’s not. With such brilliant technology emerging into our everyday life—think 3D printed hearts—inspecting pipes with a camera isn’t that wild.

Why use a video camera pipe inspection?

Using a video camera is much more reliable than some guy crouching over a hole in the ground with a flashlight. Cameras are built more sturdily these days, and some are even waterproof.

Plumbing companies that use video inspections use these types of cameras. These reflect a higher quality of human vision and can be sent to you in E-mail or DVD form so you know if a company is exaggerating the damage done to your pipes.

An inspection is also necessary if any repairs are needed to be done on your pipes within the sections below your home. Using video camera technology is much easier and certainly much quicker than using a flashlight and hoping that the plumber is correct.

Clogging, flooding, and nonfunctioning pipes aren’t necessarily the best idea in a home or work area. Having these pipes inspected and repaired as quickly as possible is the best scenario for all involved.

What’s the point of easy inspection if repairs are still going to be difficult?

Repairs don’t have to be expensive, challenging, and cost time to fix property after. Over fifteen years ago, trenchless technology was invented. This is a way of fixing plumbing that doesn’t require the digging up of old pipes and the replacement of new ones. This technology allows plumbers to access pipes through one or two entry points and work entirely through those.

Video cameras are a very important part of trenchless technology. The camera works its way through all your pipes. This lets the technician watching it in real time know if there are blockages, chips, cracks, breaks, holes, rotten spots, or other compromises to the structure of your pipes. All of these contribute to common plumbing issues like clogging, flooding, or general disuse.

I’m a homeowner and want this done in my home in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Is there a company that uses trenchless repair?

Yes. Look no further than Nu Flow. Nu Flow is a plumbing company that uses trenchless repairs to operate. They’re based close to you, in Indianapolis. They offer trenchless technologies such as sewer camera inspection, drain cleaning, and sewer repair. They use techniques like pipe lining to ensure the quality of your pipes once they’re job is complete.

Pipe lining is the use of an inflatable resin to coat the inside of your pipes, creating a “pipe within a pipe”. This repairs and reinforces your entire pipe. If you’re a homeowner with an indoor pool or a business that uses this, also consider using Nu Flow’s indoor pool drain lining service.

Even if you’re outside the Fort Wayne area, Nu Flow works in other counties; Columbus, Lafayette, Evansville, Muncie, and they’re hometown, Indianapolis are all places they service readily. Contact them today to reline, repair, and renew your pipes.
