Jetset Plumbing uses the latest technology of drain cameras and high pressure water jetters to diagnose and clear blocked drains.
The most innovative blocked drain inspection tool is the CCTV Drain Camera, when our Plumbers go out to a blocked drain the first thing we recommend to do is investigate what is causing the blockage to do this we feed a CCTV drain camera down the pipe.
The camera sends the live feed onto a screen beside the plumber who is feeding the drain camera in to the pipe. The greatest advantage with this type of inspection is you can see the condition of the pipe from the inside, whether the line is broken, collapsed or there are tree roots entering the pipe.
This inspection method takes all the guess work out of diagnosing cause of a blocked drain.
A CCTV drain camera can travel 100 metres (300 feet) down a pipe which will cover all of residential dwellings. The footage may even be stored on a DVD for future reference, or if the customer is not at home. Storing the footage is great for home owners and real estate agents to have a documented copy of the properties plumbing.
The cameras Jetset Plumbing use have a sensor on the tip of the camera this tells the plumber the exact location of the camera using our locating machine. The plumber waves the locating machine over the ground and can mark exactly where the blockage is.
Some plumbers still don’t have drain cameras and use the older inspection method such as an electric eel (also called a drain snake) to diagnose a blocked drain which is fundamentally guess work. You send the electrical eel down the pipe and when it stops that is the indication there is a blockage, as you can imagine this would be hard and requires luck and guesswork.
This is not the only disadvantage to using the older electric eel method. When the electrical eel is inserted down the pipe it can damage the pipe walls further because the plumber cannot actually see where the electrical eel is going.
Ensure that when you call a plumber in to fix your blocked drain he is fully equipped with the latest tools, this will save you precious time and money on labour! Not to mention the possibilities of further damage to the pipe.
