A drainage system can be complex, especially because most are hidden from view. CCTV drain cameras have revolutionised the plumbing industry as they deliver a precise and fast diagnosis that is based on facts, not a guess or a presumption.

A CCTV camera inspection is the fastest way for our plumbers to diagnose and locate a blockage in your drain. There are 3 main reasons a plumber will use a drain camera.

Suspected blocked drains

If you suspect you have a blocked drain, our plumber will attend with a high-pressure water jet to clear the blockage. However, without also using a CCTV camera inspection, the plumber is unable to locate the blockage and determine the cause or the size of the blockage. While it might seem like the plumber has cleared the drain, without a camera inspection they are unable to advise if there are any other blockages further down the line and cannot guarantee that your drain will not block up again the next day.

To inspect past plumbing works

At Omega Services, all our relines and patch repairs are covered with it a 100% lifetime labour guarantee plus a 25-year materials warranty. As part of the warranty, we will conduct an annual complimentary CCTV camera inspection to ensure the integrity of the surrounding pipe work is not going to impact on the repaired section of the pipe.

To determine potential plumbing problems

If you are having problems with your drainage system, whether it be a blocked drain or a leaking pipe, a camera inspection can help us gather a lot of information needed to determine the repairs needed. For example, from a camera inspection we can determine the age of your plumbing system, the type of materials used, if your pipes are earthenware, copper or PCV, and much more. We can also do a camera inspection before you purchase a home to determine any potential plumbing problems you might be unaware of.

A camera inspection is the best way to determine what is going on in your drains, and ensure you are not facing any bigger problems in the future. To speak to a licensed plumber about your drains, call our friendly team on 1300 674 797.
