Why Is It Important To Inspect Drains After Clearing?
When it comes to plumbing, blocked drains can be a major pain. Your problem might accumulate slowly over time or the impact of a blocked drain might hit you instantly, but either way the impact can be serious. From smelly sinks and showers to blocked-up toilets and even major plumbing disasters, blocked drains can be a major headache and a major expense.
Because of this, we all know that identifying and resolving the problem early is essential, but there are also other ways to avoid a major plumbing disaster. After clearing your pipes, CCTV inspection can ensure that there aren’t major problems hiding below the surface and that your blocked drain problem won’t quickly recur. Let’s have a look at 5 benefits of CCTV inspections after clearing.
It Ensures a Job Well Done
Whether you’ve had your pipes cleared professionally or you’ve done the job yourself, CCTV inspections can give you the extra peace of mind you need. You can’t see deep into your pipes alone so it just makes sense that you double check. It’s possible that the initial blockage has been cleared but there is remaining build up that will lead to another blockage sooner rather than later.

It’s a Non-Invasive Approach
In the past, having a closer look at your pipes have been both messy and costly, involving large amounts of excavation. With CCTV inspections you can double check your pipes without ruining your garden. It usually involves little or no digging at all, meaning there’s no mess and no fuss when double checking your pipes.
It Identifies Underlying Problems
Sometimes a blocked drain is nothing more than that, and once you’ve cleared that gives problem solution. Sometimes though, blocked drains are a sign of damaged pipes which means the blockage is likely to reoccur. Having an inspection will identify all of these problems allowing you the opportunity to have them resolved before the next blockage can occur. Similarly, these inspections can identify old pipes that might be in need of maintenance.
Knowledge is Power
As mentioned earlier, CCTV cameras come with the added bonus of footage, which can be provided to you on CD or DVD. On top of this, many plumbers will also offer written reports to go with this. Even when your drains have been successfully cleared, this extra knowledge can be useful to help you and your plumber quickly identify and resolve any future problems. With a quick inspection, you can be ready to future proof your pipes.
Recover Lost Treasure
Dropping your favorite action figure or piece of jewelry deep down the drain doesn’t have to be the end. If you have lost a precious piece to the plumbing, the CCTV might just come across it in its post cleaning inspection. Talk about lucky.
