Latest Technology in CCTV Drain Camera Inspections

CCTV drain camera.

A sewer or drain camera system makes it possible to locate and identify blockages or damage to storm water drains, plumbing pipes and sewer systems. In the past, blocked pipes had to be excavated and inspected closely by a professional plumber to locate and repair problems. However, with the advancement of CCTV (Closed Circuit Television) technology, drain cameras make things a whole lot easier. Using CCTV cameras, we can investigate your blocked drains without the need to excavate, saving you time and money. Mr Plumber utilises high grade CCTV drain camera systems.

If you have a blocked drain or reoccurring pipe blockage, Mr Plumber has the equipment to diagnose the cause without the need for expensive excavation.

Sewer Drain Camera Inspection

Using CCTV drain camera to inspect sewer.

There are many causes of blocked sewage drains such as foreign objects, hairballs, fatty build up and tree root intrusion. A sewer drain camera inspection might be required to find the true source of the blockage. Depending on the cause of the sewer blockage, our experienced plumbers have various methods of cleaning drains. Our vans are fitted with tools such as a plumbing snake or electric eel, which is long wire which is carefully fed down a drain or sewer line which will either break the blockage up or allow it to be pulled back out when the wire is retracted. For difficult blockages, a water jetter

(also known as a sewer jetter or drain jetter) may be used. Water jetters use high-pressure water to clear the drain blockage. We may also deploy a robotic cutter -- which is equipment that can be passed along the drain be used to cut out hard objects such as tree roots.

The Benefits of CCTV Sewer Cameras for Drain Pipe Inspections

Before CCTV cameras were invented, investigating the full scope of damage to underground drain pipes required a carefully balanced juggling act of guesswork and possibly extensive excavations. The advent of CCTV pipe plumbing cameras opened the door to efficiently diagnose the cause of blocked drains in Melbourne and allow us to accurately pinpoint the location of the drain blockage. Mr Plumber offers professional, informed and calculated recommendations and drain cleaning based on video evidence, allowing us to successfully and efficiently clear blocked drains. We can get a reliable diagnosis inside sewers and stormwater drains without the need for messy or smelly excavations. CCTV sewer cameras also provide us the ability to identify potential future blockages before they have a chance to cause an issue. Timely knowledge of future problems can save you significant money in the long run.

What Can CCTV Drain Cameras Detect?

  • Organic Material: Dirt, leaves and sediment that has washed into drains and pipes

  • Damaged Pipes: Broken and cracked pipes caused by environmental factors

  • Wet Pipes: Blockages caused by wet wipes which do not easily break down

  • Root Infestations: Tree roots can break into and grow along pipes

  • Collapsed and Sagged Pipes: Sewers that have collapsed from age or poor installation

  • Oil, Fat and Grease: Grease that has solidified and congealed around the sides of the pipe
