When will we need to use a drain camera?

To find blockages: When your drains and water pipes are blocked in your plumbing system. chances you will need to send a drain camera down to detect what is causing the problem. There are a number of factors that will cause a blockage including leaves, dirt, foreign objects, and even rubbish can get stuck in the pipes with minimal drainage. This will cause a larger problem to your drains if not attended to immediately. Once we inspect your drains through your drain system, we will be able to locate the cause right away.

Drain misalignment: Over time, the ground can shift, which will result in your drain pipes being misaligned in your pipe system. This often causes leaks that would require repairs to prevent any further damage. Our drain camera will easily locate the leaks or any misalignment in your plumbing drainage system.

Tree roots or outside debris: Most types of pipe blockages are caused by tree roots and other outside debris. Before any further damage to your pipes, let us locate the problem and repair the increasing damage.

    Sewer and drain inspection cameras are modern diagnostic tools used by plumbers. They allow for an accurate inspection of blocked toilet drains, stormwater drains, and other sewer pipe blockages.

    CCTV drain cameras have several components, including a small camera head and reel, a CCD sensor, a radio transmitter, and adjustable bright lights. The cable reel can be up to 120 meters long, making it easier to detect the root cause of a drain blockage. The LED lights and camera lenses provide a wide, accurate image that is displayed on a digital colour screen. This allows drain camera plumbers to conduct detailed pipe inspections and the causes of blocked drains in less time.

    The latest models are equipped with keyboards and have a run time of four to five hours per charge. Some feature SD cards, allowing drain plumbers to save the images and include them in their reports to the client. The cable reel is typically made of fibreglass for increased strength and durability.
