There are several signs that indicate your pipes may be in trouble, but the only way to really tell is with professional inspection equipment. Though some conventional plumbing inspection equipment detects leaks using audio, we believe that the best and most accurate way to catch leaks at the source is with video equipment.
We carry some of the most advanced equipment to detect pipe leaks and repair them faster. When you hire Paws Plumbing, you get our plumber's in San Diego, CA who are committed to excellent customer service. And that's true no matter what – whether pipe inspection simply shows you have a simple clog or it turns out you need whole house repiping.

When Would You Need a Video Pipe Inspection?
Our San Diego video pipe Inspection is not something that every home will need when plumbing problems come up. It does take time and sometimes the problem can be easy to locate without video.
Some problems, however, can only truly be detected with technology. As soon as you suspect a pipe problem, give our team a call.
We recommend our San Diego video pipe inspection for common issues such as:
Why Should You Get a Video Pipe Inspection for Drain Clogs?
With our San Diego video pipe inspection, we can find the source of a clog and determine the right tools to use to pull it out or break it up. That means there will be no damage to your drain and no mess left behind.
A video inspection may inform us that the clog can be removed simply with a drain snake or that we should use a more powerful tool like hydro jetting.
After a clog is removed, we can use video pipe inspection again to see the results and make sure we completely removed the blockage.
How Does Video Pipe Inspection Work?
A camera lens is attached to the end of a thin wire cable, which should be fed through the pipes slowly by an experienced plumber who knows how to navigate them. Your plumber can view a live feed in order to show you exactly where the problem lies.
Our plumbers in San Diego can provide video pipe inspection when you notice problems with pipes that may indicate leaking or clogging. Since it may be limited to pipes of a certain diameter, video pipe inspection is often used for drain and sewer pipes only.
Commercial Drain Inspection
Don’t forget that your commercial drains need service, too. In fact, commercial drains tend to take on far more wear and tear than residential systems, particularly if you run a commercial kitchen and own a grease trap that needs frequent maintenance.
Even without a major commercial kitchen plumbing system, you cannot control what people put down the drains in the bathrooms of the building, so commercial plumbing emergencies are common.
Let us use advanced video pipe inspection to improve your commercial plumbing system.
