How Video Inspections Work
Video inspections allow us to visually inspect the interiors of your plumbing lines. The process involves feeding a flexible rod fitted with a high-definition video camera into your pipes. As the rod navigates through the pipes, it transmits real-time video feedback to our technicians, revealing the state of your pipes and pinpointing any anomalies such as cracks, blockages, or leaks.
This non-intrusive method offers a comprehensive view of your plumbing system, allowing us to accurately diagnose issues and strategize the most effective remedies. Plus, it saves time and resources by eliminating unnecessary digging or disassembly. Whether you’re dealing with persistent clogs, slow drainage, or abnormal sewer behavior, video inspections provide a detailed understanding of the issue and pave the way for a targeted solution.
How Dye Testing Works
Dye testing is another effective method we use to diagnose certain plumbing issues, particularly those related to leaks. In this process, a non-toxic, colored dye is introduced into your plumbing system. The dye travels through the pipes and, if a leak exists, will seep out at the site of the issue, providing a clear visual indication of its location. This method is especially useful in checking the integrity of your sewer lines and can also be instrumental in detecting any connection between your home’s drainage system and the local stormwater system. Dye testing offers a simple and efficient way to identify and locate leaks, allowing us to take swift action to repair them.

How Often Should You Get Your Plumbing and Sewer Systems Assessed?
The frequency at which you should get your plumbing and sewer systems assessed largely depends on factors like the age of your property, the type of plumbing and sewer systems installed, and any prior history of plumbing issues. As a general rule of thumb, we recommend a comprehensive inspection of your plumbing and sewer systems every two years. This helps you catch potential issues before they escalate into bigger problems requiring expensive repairs, and ensures your systems run as efficiently as possible.
However, if your property is older or you’ve had recurring issues, more frequent inspections might be necessary. For instance, homes with a history of sewer backups, extensive tree roots, or outdated plumbing materials may benefit from annual inspections. Similarly, if you’ve just bought a new home or completed a major renovation, a thorough inspection can provide peace of mind by ensuring everything is functioning as it should.
Ultimately, regular assessments are essential to maintaining the health of your plumbing and sewer systems. By identifying potential problems early, you can save money on future repairs and prolong your systems’ life. At Greater Pittsburgh Plumbing, we’re here to assist you with these inspections and all your plumbing needs – even offering regular inspections and maintenance through our Service Partner Program – keeping your home’s plumbing running smoothly and efficiently.
