Sarasota plumbing repair jobs were once a matter of guesswork. When a professional plumber handled the job, it was educated guesswork, but it was still guesswork that relied on trial and error before finding the best solution to a problem. However, this is no longer the case. Thanks to technology like video camera inspection equipment, plumbers can discover the nature and location of plumbing issues and then find the best and quickest way to solve them. This saves time, money, and future problems.

Wimpy’s Plumbing & Air offers video camera inspections for plumbing in Sarasota, FL, and the surrounding areas.
How Video Camera Inspections Are Done
You can’t see the inside of your plumbing on your own, of course, but a plumber who has the right equipment can. The video cameras used in plumbing are miniaturized digital devices mounted onto the end of a long fiber–optic cable, along with a small but powerful LED light. The plumber feeds the camera down into a drain, and wheels along the front of the cable move the camera down into the plumbing system.
The fiber–optic cable is long enough to allow the plumber to inspect the entire length of a sewer line if necessary. The camera sends back images from the inside of the pipe to a monitor. The plumber uses the images to determine what specific issues are in the plumbing and how best to deal with them. The plumber can also record the images to allow you to look over the plumbing yourself and see what work needs to be done.
