Call Chicago Plumbing Pros to Diagnose Plumbing Issues through Mainline Video Feeds

Plumbers 911 Techs are Available 24/7 for All Plumbing Needs

Mainline Video | PlumbersWhen you are suffering from some type of unexplainable issue with your plumbing, all hope can be lost as to what the issue could be. You think you have looked everywhere, and not found any type of a solution, then all of a sudden you realize there is one place you forgot—your pipes. Well, as anyone who is struggling with a plumbing issue knows, looking into the pipes is often not very feasible. So what is a person to do? Call in the experts who can look in the mainline of your home with a camera and help diagnose your issues! Having a mainline video done on your pipes allows the experienced plumbers in Chicago to come out and see exactly what the issue is from the inside of the pipe. The flexible tubing that the camera is mounted to can snake through nearly any size pipe, spin around to look at each pipe in its entirety, and can even bend around corners, leaving no parts of your pipes neglected during the report. You will have a very good idea what condition your pipes are in when the report is completed, and then you can decide what to do next. You can have any number of issues that could be causing a problem with your pipes that would stop water from flowing through. Some of these could be:
  • A buildup of sludge and debris in the pipes causing an issue with water flow. This can harden over time, and make it to where water can only trickle through a pipe that should be large enough for large quantities of water to run through at any time. If this sludge is still soft, then this needs to be broken up in order to stop the plumbing issues, but if the sludge has hardened, the pipe may need to be totally replaced in order to get a solid flow of water again.
  • Tree roots are notorious in damaging pipes. If you have a lovely large tree in your front yard and you have noticed a backup in your pipes since the tree fully matured, chances are you are looking at roots having infiltrated your pipes, leading to a backup and cracked pipes. This can leave your house with water backup, and it can leave your yard flooding with the waste that is leaking out of the broken pipes.
  • Cracked pipes sometimes happen on their own from age, fatigue, or sometimes even changes in the weather. Getting a video camera down the mainline pipe will show cracks or breaks in your pipes, letting you know if those pipes need to be repaired or even replaced.
  • Rocks can sometimes cause issues within your pipes as well. If you were to get a large rock somehow caught in your mainline pipe, your water would struggle to drain around it. If you are able to see a large rock on the screen when the camera is in place, then you may be able to have the dedicated experts on scene remove the rock, and fix your problem on the spot.

Great Benefits of Having a Mainline Video Taken of Your Pipes

When you call in the trained, experienced technicians from Plumbers 911 to do a mainline video inspection of your home, you are able to see for yourself what condition your pipes are in. Instead of having to guess if your home is struggling, or about to have some type of an issue, you can know with a solid measure of certainty. Because the technicians do these types of videos on a regular basis, they know what to be on the lookout for and they can tell you if they see any problems. If you are not currently experiencing any major issues, they will be able to give you their professional opinion about how secure your home will be from upcoming issues in the near future.
Another benefit that many people do not consider when it comes to using a mainline video feed is the fact that you can see if something went down the drain at your home. Perhaps your child flushed a valuable set of keys or piece of jewelry. By having a video done of the mainline out of your home, you may be able to retrieve the item before it reaches the road and combines with the sewer pipes in your city. Take the time to ask what options you have when you give us a call, and we can explain how we can help.
