Tending to blocked drains can be a very tedious job. Your property has to be first dug up before the pipes can be fixed. It is a challenging task, which results in a lot of expenditure. The work also takes a long time and requires a lot of labour.

With the help of CCTV drain camera inspections, you can deal with your plumbing emergency by figuring out the root cause of the issue, at a cost-efficient rate. The tiny camera can access the pipe internally and help the plumbers zero-in on the kind of tools and fixes required for the drain.

This CCTV method simplifies the task, and no major digging is required. The pipes can be repaired or replaced with minimal effort. It also eliminates unnecessary property damage, which occurs when standard methods are used, before even knowing what the real cause is. It also spares you a lot of expense.

Why use CCTV cameras?

We at SPS Plumbers Sutherland Shire use the most up-to-date plumbing equipment. We also use different and effective professional techniques for our work. All of our plumbers have been specially trained in using these CCTV cameras. There are various pros of using such equipment in situations like these:

  • Accurate Inspections – These devices afford extreme accuracy due to the live feed function present. Our plumbers can quickly examine the drains via the monitors themselves. It helps in locating the cause of the problem and the specific site at which the problem has occurred. They can quickly inspect for minor leaks in these drains too. It is always advised to fix such leaks and damages immediately, so they don’t end up causing further damages.
  • Better View– CCTV cameras are capable of giving you a complete 360° view by fitting into very tiny spaces. It helps the plumbers access small areas and bends in the pipe. The video feed also provides the plumbers a visual of any previous damage or deterioration that has taken place in the pipes. e.g., cracks, problems with the joints, blockage, etc. if there are any blockages inside the pipe, the depth of that can also easily determined.
  • Records of Findings– Since these cameras have a built-in recording function, it becomes pretty easy for our experts to analyze the problem and offer a suitable solution for it.
  • Excellent solution– Such CCTV inspections help minimize property damage. They also help plumbers determine the exact cause of the problem, instead of making assumptions about it. It is one of the most reliable and safe methods to fix drain pipes. A professional plumber in Sydney can quickly locate the issue and provide a solution to the problem.

Any drain-related problems should always be tackled without any delay. Clogs and blockages in the system build up slowly, and they always show some signs. However, we tend to ignore these signs, which is why the problem escalates and gets out of hand. Once the clog becomes very stubborn, it can be extremely troublesome to get it fixed.  

In some cases, the blockage may also result in damage to the drain, which can become expensive to fix.  The best way to make sure that you don’t have to deal with these problems is to hire skilled and experienced plumbing professionals. We at SPS Plumbers Sutherland Shire offer high quality plumbing maintenance services.

Getting the drains checked regularly helps to ensure that problems or clogs if any, are spotted in time.  Skilled and experienced plumbers use various latest techniques and tools to clear even the most stubborn blockages.  They use CCTV drain cameras, root cutters, and high-pressure water jets to clear grease and debris buildup from the insides of the drains.

DIY Drain Clearing Methods

While it is always a good idea to call in professionals for the job, there are specific steps you can take to ensure that your drains remain clear.  You can use these DIY methods to clear minor drain blockages.

  • It’s a good idea to keep a plunger in your home. This simple tool is handy in clearing blocks in drains. Its vacuum action helps to pull out the blocks quickly and efficiently.
  • You can also use a drain snake which physically removes the clog without damaging your pipes.
  • Make it a point to pour hot water into the drains at regular intervals.  The hot water softens agents like grease, soap, fats, etc. You can then use the drain snake to pull out any sludge that might be leftover in the drainpipe.
  • It’s best not to use any chemical drain cleaners as they cause more harm than good.  Always use organic products as they will help to clean the drains safely.
  • A combination of vinegar and baking soda mixed with water is a great solution to remove stubborn blockages from the drain.  This preventive measure helps to keep your drains clear, reducing the chances of blockage.

Hire a Sydney Plumber

Despite doing all these things, if you find that there is water backing up into your sink or shower areas, you should call in a licensed plumber without delay.  The experts will use drain cameras to determine what is causing the blockage and exactly where the clog is.  Once they have this visibility, it becomes easier for them to decide what steps to take to clear the drain blockage. As mentioned, regular maintenance of your plumbing systems saves you time, trouble, and money on unnecessary drain repairs and replacement.
