The value of CCTV inspection
CCTV inspection can help homeowners identify damage and a professional can suggest the most affordable way to fix it. Since the CCTV can find very specific spots of the system, only the damaged part would be worked on. Harm caused by root intrusion, cracking, or faulty joints don't require the entire pipe to be removed. Pipe lining to a specific area is called sectional point repair. Seeing that only a small section will be worked on, it becomes more affordable to proceed with the pipe repair.
