Underground Pipeline Inspections with CCTV

Tags : 

Out of sight, out of mind is a mantra that works in many aspect of life, but not in the world of underground pipeline inspections.

Without proper upkeep, underground pipelines become susceptible to a variety of issues, leaving your water, sewer, and utilities at risk.

Discover how Engineering Perfect Systems in the Bay Area adequately maintains the underground pipes and utilities for northern California homes, businesses and municipalities with closed-circuit television CCTV Pipeline Inspections.

No Digging Underground Pipeline Inspections

One of the most tiresome, detrimental, costly, and invasive parts of pipeline inspection is the digging. Both manual and machine digging require a large upfront budget and the destruction of land or property, even if you don’t find a problem in the pipeline.

With CCTV pipeline inspections, there’s no digging and minimal interaction with underground and above-ground components. Not only does this save you time and money, but it also provides the same results in a fraction of the time.

Quick and Efficient Preventive Maintenance

The most costly utility and pipe incidents occur when there’s a crack or burst. Fortunately, a bit of preventive maintenance in the form of CCTV can stop this from happening.

As soon as the camera is dropped into the pipe, the technician gathers visual data to see if any problems loom large. If cracks, sludge build-up, or other problems are identified, proper steps can be taken to fix the issue before it becomes a disaster.

Correct Diagnoses of Underground Pipeline Issues

Without CCTV for pipeline inspections, incorrect diagnoses of pipe issues may occur. Not only is this a costly venture, but it’s also time-consuming. Even the most seasoned plumbers, excavators, and utility workers can have trouble identifying a problem they can’t see.

CCTV pipe inspections give an up-close look at each pipe, allowing the inspector to see whether sludge, a tree root, a broken pipe, or a clog is to blame for the maintenance issue. Once the problem is accurately identified, workers can easily develop a maintenance strategy.

A Safer Alternative

When workers have to dig in the yard to get to sewer pipes, water pipes, and utilities, it poses a significant risk to their safety. One wrong move with a shovel, and they can be exposed to electrical shock, cave-ins, or noxious gases. A CCTV inspection effectively eliminates these risks while giving workers a visual close-up that’s comparable to a first-person account.

Unbeatable Accuracy

CCTV pipeline inspections utilize some of the most sophisticated technology in the industry. Each camera operates with a high enough resolution to see any current or lurking problems. Some also offer different attachments and cameras to develop a more complete perspective of the pipe’s condition. P

Powerful LED lighting affixed to the cameras also illuminate those difficult-to-see areas, giving the technician more information for a proper diagnosis. In addition, laser scanning can provide an extra layer of detail to identify any problems that aren’t possible with a CCTV inspection.

With CCTV for all your pipe inspection needs, you can take the guesswork out of maintenance, reduce damage to infrastructure, save time, and reduce your budget on overhead. That’s something that every business and homeowner in northern California can get behind.

Increased water usage is a given during the hot days of summer, whether it’s indoor or outdoor, homeowners generally use 25% to 40% more water during the summer months.  Our plumbing company always provides Bay Area homeowners and business owners with tips to improve their plumbing and reduce cost.  So here are a few you may want to consider.

Away on Vacation?

If you’re going away for a week or so during the summer, turn down the water heater before you leave, this will help you save on energy during the time it is not in use.

Traditional water heaters generally have a life span of 8 to 11 years, know how old your water heater is before you leave to avoid any disasters while you’re far from home.

Tip: If you’re unsure of the age of your water heater, look at the last four digits of the serial number, they generally represent the month and year the water heater was manufactured.

For the future, you may want to consider a tankless water heater to avoid issues, and enjoy long term savings.

Entertaining at Home?

Whether you have a pool or not, laundry loads tend to increase during the summer months.  The heat is on! So it’s no surprise we change our clothes more often.  Enjoy special summer promotions and replace old appliances around the house to energy efficient appliances, or conduct a quick visual inspection of all the hoses on your appliances to insure no leaks are occurring from the increased usage.

Outdoor cookouts and indoor get-togethers are a blast during the summer months, but avoid shoving left overs down the garbage disposal and the drains.

Landscaping Around the House?

Keep an eye out for the trees around the house, no one wants to deal with a sewage backup or tree roots finding their way into the sewer line instead of having summer fun.  If you suspect anything, give our Bay Area sewer experts a call, we’ll quickly inspect and help you avoid or fix any clogged sewer line quickly so you can get back to enjoying summer.

Water your lawns early morning or late evening when the sun is not around.  If you water your lawn while the sun is out, the water is evaporating and you’re wasting energy.

There are hundreds of ways to avoid plumbing disasters, and many more tips to save on energy in your home or business.  Plumbing challenges do come up no matter what the season is, but we want you to know our professional plumbers at Express Plumbing are here to assist you any time you need us.

We’ve been serving the Bay Area’s trusted contractor since 1989, and we hope you’ll have a fun filled summer free from plumbing problems.
