CCTV Drain Camera Pipe Inspection Specialists
The proven method for locating sewer pipe problems such as a blocked sewer.
Because sewer lines are underground, it’s really anyone’s guess what is happening in them. The only way to be sure is to have a video inspection of your sewer line with a sewer drain camera.
How CCTV camera/locators work
Drain inspection cameras are small cameras that are surrounded by lights. They are fed into the sewer pipe system to allow for a real-time inspection by Toscano Plumbing team members, via a monitor at the surface.
The drain inspection camera can quickly locate and identify blockages or damage when a problem has become apparent. It can also be used as a preventative measure to ensure you have perfectly-functioning plumbing at all times. This can be particularly important for businesses that rely on plumbing to operate.
Benefits of hiring our drain camera inspection Melbourne team
With CCTV drain inspection specialists available 24/7, there’s no reason to delay your drain camera inspection.
- Non-invasive: Older practices of detecting blockages and sewage pipe issues required sections of pipe to be dug up for visual inspection. There’s no need to worry about having your property destroyed when Toscano Plumbing uses latest technology sewer drain cameras.
- Less costly: The time and human resources required to locate the issue is far less with the help of a drain inspection camera. This translates to it being a less costly exercise for you.
- Accurate: A CCTV drain camera can accurately and quickly pinpoint the site of the issue. No second-guessing necessary.
- Visual record: Toscano Plumbing records DVD’s of the inspection and keeps them on file for future reference.
The most efficient process for unblocking underground sewage pipes
The Toscano Plumbing team are expert CCTV drain camera inspection specialists and will not only look at sewer cleaning for a temporary fix but assess and provide you with solutions for the future. Here’s how we work:
Step 1: Drain camera inspection
We inspect and identify the blockage using a sewer drain camera. We assess why the blockage has occurred.
Step 2: High pressure jetting
In the case of foreign matter blocking the pipe (e.g. tree roots and grease), water jetting using specialised equipment is the best method for unblocking old sewage pipes.
Step 3: Robotic cutting
If the blockage proves too solid for the water jetting to break up, a robotic cutting head is sent down to cut through the foreign matter.
Step 4: Future action
Once the blockage is cleared, we will then look at providing solutions for preventing further blockage issues if they seem likely. We also ascertain whether the blockage has caused damage to the pipe or any sewer leaks and provide solutions with a detailed report on request.
The urgency of fixing sewer pipe leakage
A sewer pipe blockage may be disguising another problem - sewer pipe leakage. There are many long-term environmental impacts of leaking sewer pipes. Leaking sewage erodes the soil, which can collapse under the weight of wet soil from a rain downpour, resulting in a sinkhole and property damage. Leaking sewage can also contaminate groundwater and natural water systems like rivers. Not only is this environmental pollution, but it is also a bacterial health hazard.
