Mainline Video | Missouri PlumbersIf your pipes are experiencing repeated clogs you may have an issue in the line somewhere.

Further, the type of issue that you have will determine what needs to be done to repair it. If you need to see what’s going on the best bet is to have a licensed technician visually inspect the inside of your pipes using a specialized video camera. Call Plumbers 911 at (816) 326-8643 and we can schedule an appointment with a licensed contractor who is skilled in these types of inspections.

Problems in your pipes can have many different sources. Further complicating things, the fix for one type of clog can actually make things worse when your issue is due to something else.

Have a Certified Technician Visually Inspect Your Main Line

For this reason, you should have a professional on hand when trying to figure out what’s going on in your pipes.

Clogs can have many sources, including:

  • Grease
  • Food
  • Sediment
  • Sand
  • Silt
  • Roots
  • Hair clumps
  • Sludge
  • Small toys that have been flushed
  • And other things.

Let A Missouri Tech Handle Your Mainline Video Inspection

If you have a clog or a different type of problem in your pipes, it’s best to figure out exactly what is causing it before you try to fix it. This is because the solution to some types of clogs can actually make matters worse depending on the situation.

For example, if the clog is due to a sand or sediment buildup, the best way to resolve it may be to insert a hydro jet tool into the pipe and blast it away. A hydro jet tool shoots out water at pressures of up to 4000 psi in order to obliterate clogs and flush the lines.

However, if your problem is caused by a small area of weakness in your pipe which is allowing sand or sediment to get in, and you use a hydro jet tool, you could actually end up rupturing your pipe at the weakened place, creating the need for costly repairs which can range in the thousands of dollars.

However, if the clog is due to sand or sediment, a chemical plumbing product will not do anything and you will just be dumping money down your drain.

For these reasons, it is imperative that if you have a stubborn clog you figure out exactly what is causing it. This is where main line video inspection comes in.

A licensed plumber can insert a flexible line into pipes as small as 2 inches and as large as 36 inches in diameter. A camera is at the end of the rod, and it sends a video feed back to the technician. Using this technology he or she can thread the camera throughout your sewer system and locate the clog.

A technician has a highly-trained eye to immediately identify clogs and determine the source of the problem. Then, depending on what the video inspection revealed, you can make appropriate arrangements for replacement or repair of the line.

Insist on Using a Licensed Missouri Professional Conduct Your Video Line Inspection

Operating a video camera tool in the confines of a small sewer line and accurately identifying and diagnosing problems requires a significant amount of training and experience. There is much more to it than just shoving a video camera down the pipeline.

Our technicians come with all the necessary training to successfully conduct the video inspection. Further, they have the credentials to back up their training. You never have to be concerned that you will have an inexperienced contractor fumbling around inside your pipe system. You can rest easy knowing that the person working has been trained to the highest degree possible and knows precisely what he or she is doing.

Using an unlicensed contractor for a job such as this can have disastrous consequences: an incorrect diagnosis can lead to wasted time on a futile repair job at best and ruptured or destroyed pipes at worst. This is literally an instance where a mistake can cost thousands of dollars.

Fortunately for you, we have already done the hard part for you. We only allow properly licensed and certified technicians to be included in our database of professionals. You know that when we send someone to your door, he or she is a professional in every sense of the word. There’s no guesswork involved and you’ll never have any reason to question the qualifications of the person working on your lines.

Other Reasons to Use a Certified Missouri Contractor for Your Main Line Video Inspection

In addition, our reliable Missouri contractors maintain professional liability insurance to cover their work product.
