Though plumbing pipes are designed to be long-lasting, they won’t last forever. Over time, leaks, corrosion, and buildup can cause your pipes to wear out and deteriorate. If you think about how often you rely on your plumbing fixtures at your Northern Virginia home, you can begin to appreciate how daily use can cause your plumbing pipes to break down or leak over the years.
Because aging pipes can cost you more money in both high water bills and future repairs, it’s essential to detect worn-out plumbing early. Fortunately, modern plumbing equipment can help determine the age of your VA pipes accurately, preserving your peace of mind by detecting worn-out plumbing before it causes damage to your home in the form of backups and leaks.
Often, plumbing problems seem as if they pop up out of the blue. In reality, however, many issues start off small and can remain “under the radar” for many years before they suddenly reach a point of no return. These undetected problems can cost you more time and money in the long run.
That’s why the professional plumbing experts at Freedom Plumbers recommend getting your plumbing and fixtures inspected annually, especially if you live in a home that is 30 years old or older. Aging, worn-out pipes made of outdated materials like Orangeburg and lead are at higher risk of problems, including collapse. With our video camera sewer inspections, we can save you thousands by detecting flaws in old pipe systems before you have an emergency on your hands.
Video cameras are one of the most reliable tools professional plumbers can have in their arsenal. When you call us for an inspection, we will send a small, waterproof camera through the length of your plumbing system, filming the interior pipes in real-time.
With this method, we can spot even the smallest problem areas with ease, all without having to dig a hole in your yard. We can also give you the estimated age of your pipes, and let you know whether it’s time to repair them or replace them entirely. If you have older pipes at your Northern Virginia property, schedule your video inspection with Freedom Plumbers.
