Video Camera Inspection
Video camera pipe inspections is a technology used by Rooter-Man of Charlottesville, VA to detect pipe leaks and breaks. Our state of the art video camera inspection equipment is a bendable fiber optic wire with a high resolution video camera attached at its end. The device is complete with sensors. Once the camera is introduced into the pipe it enables our technicians to quickly complete visual assessments of underground pipes and to locate any leaks or breakage. The video images as well as the diagnosis are saved and a copy will be provided to you upon request.
Problems commonly identified by a video camera inspection include:
- Damaged pipes- collapsed or broken pipes.
- Misaligned pipes- caused by the ground freezing, or shifting earth.
- Clogged pipes- grease build up, or any kind of blockage.
- Deterioration of pipes- corrosion or oxidation formed over time.
- Root invasion- tree roots that grow and damage pipes or sewer lines.

Infrared thermograms has proven to be both accurate and efficient in locating pipe leaks. When a leak has let a fluid or gas out, the fluid leaves a thermal conductance different from the dry areas around. A high resolution infrared camera allows areas to be scanned and the resulting pictures show areas of differing temperatures by displaying grey tones on a black and white image or by various colors on a color image. This method of leak detection can detect problems inside your home or business as well as 30 meters below the ground.
A leak changes the pressure readings of a pipe some. Once a pipe has a leak in it the pressure decreases. Testing pressure or flow readings therefore provides a simple method for detecting leaks. This method is mostly used for water leaks because its ability to locate gas leaks is limited.
