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.

Weekend Plumber? Tricks of the Trade from Your Bay Area Plumbing Contractor

Tags : 

As a Bay Area plumbing contractor, we give thumbs up to those that want to roll up their sleeves and be a weekend plumber.  We get called all the time to repair what hubby or someone around the house tried to fix, but we also respect that you’re willing to do it yourself.  Here are a few tips to help you be the weekend plumber hero.

Weekend Plumber Tips and Tricks!

Emergency Plumbing Contractor Clogged Sink

Clogged Sink

Before going out and renting a drain snake, give your wet/dry shop vac a try.  Use its suction power to pull hair or gunk out of a clogged sink.  Many solutions are also available in the hardware store, that will help you unclog the sink quickly by breaking down the gunk down the drain, but a shop vac should make it even better.

If the problem persists, it could be a much deeper problem and you need a plumbing contractor at that point.  Give our Bay Area plumbing crew a call, we’re here to help, when you DIY methods have failed.

 


Leaking faucet emergency plumberLeaky Faucet (drip, drip)

Drives you crazy doesn’t it?  Most common leaky faucets are caused by deterioration of the seal.  Over time, the seal breaks down and must be replaced.  Your local hardware store can sell you a replacement seal.

Besides the faucet leaking, how about that toilet that won’t stop running!  That is probably the worst because with the sound of a running toilet, all you hear is your money going down the drain.  You’re paying for all that wasted water.

Now, we know the first thing you want to do is walk up to the toilet and jiggle that handle!  May work, but how often do you actually plan on doing that?  Stop jiggling and replace the flapper inside the toilet.  It’s an easy fix and commonly supplied at your local hardware store.


Stinky Dishwasher DIY tipStinky Dishwasher

Got vinegar?  Clean the seals around your dishwasher using a brush and hot soapy water.  The scum that builds up around the seals can get pretty stinky.  Once you’re done, run the dishwasher at the hottest setting with vinegar inside, that should clear it up pretty quickly!

We just have to mention that as a trusted plumbing contractor in the Bay Area, residential plumbing is a division within our operation.

We are the Bay Area #1 choice for heavy construction, underground construction, engineering, and drilling for residential, commercial and municipal clients throughout the Bay Area.

Plumbing Inspection Before Buying a Home

Tags : 

Are you buying a home and worried about plumbing problems? You should perform an inspection that will put your mind at ease.  Besides structural inspections, a plumbing inspection is also something to consider.

Nothing compares to the joy of home ownership, especially for first time buyers.  Preparing to purchase your dream home involves much more than liking the floor plan, there’s a lot more to consider.

Moving Expenses

Besides the purchase price of a home, you’ll want to consider all the expenses and fees relating to moving, time off from work, trucking, moving company if you’re not doing it yourself and the purchase of furniture if your current furniture doesn’t look good in the new house.

Repair Costs

Although home inspections are performed, there are unplanned repairs that come up.  Whether your home is new or old, plumbing issues tend to arise at any time.

Most common plumbing problems are related to hardware and connections, leaks in various areas, and hot water heaters that stop functioning shortly after moving in.

Make sure you save extra cushion money for these unplanned repair costs.

Regular Plumbing Maintenance 

Stay consistent in maintaining your home plumbing, implementing regular inspection and maintenance can prove to be a huge cost savings over time.

Plumbing Inspection

Keeping an eye on your plumbing hardware will help you avoid larger plumbing emergencies.  

While you may be in awww of the new home, before you purchase one, take a closer look at the hardware in kitchens and bathrooms or wherever you see a connection.

Each home has a variety of different water sources in its design. These are the locations where problems are likely to arise.

  • Faucets
  • Shower Heads
  • Pipes
  • Connections

Our Bay Area plumbers have assisted many homeowners by inspecting a home before purchase.  This will ease your mind during the purchase, and help you rest easy without any worries.

Investigate Leaks Early

Reports by the Environmental Protection Agency have revealed that the average household leak can result in the loss of 10,000 gallons of water.

Often these leaks occur in places that homeowners are unaware of. Basements, for example can leak for quite some time without being spotted.

If you are aware of a leak it is important to do a thorough investigation. Finding the source of the leak is the only way to fix the problem.  Our professional plumbing company offers plumbing video camera inspections, and advanced leak detection to help you find the problem quick.

When standing water is allowed to remain in place, additional damage can occur to the surrounding areas, floors, walls, etc…  The earlier you detect and repair plumbing problems, the less costly it will be.

If you’re looking to purchase a home, rely on our Bay Area residential plumbing services to help you make a decision prior to purchase.  

Pride of home-ownership comes with buying your dream home without the hassle of plumbing problems and additional unplanned costs.  View a list of our Bay Area plumbing service areas, we look forward to helping you when you need us.
