Q: What are some of the benefits of video pipe inspection?
A: Video Pipe Inspection is very important because you will be able to see obstacles that you can’t see from the outside. By going inside a line and videoing it you can collect information for the customer and yourself.
Videoing a line is recommended when it's a new job and its recommended when there is a sinkhole or signs that the lines are not flowing. We clean them up and we video them.
When you go to the hospital and you have a problem with your health and they say “Well we have to do an X-ray.” The X-ray is not to just do the X-ray, it is to locate a problem. You’re locating an internal problem that you can’t see from the outside.
Its like a sinkhole. You can see that the area is sinking but you actually have to see internally that there is a problem. To be able to propose to fix either by a slip liner, we can do a point repair, we can be able to determine if it is repairable or not.
