Roto-Rooter utilizes advanced technologies which often allows us to diagnose and repair problems with minimal damage to the surrounding area include:
Smoke testing is a simple and cost effective method used to locate leaks in sewer pipes and plumbing systems. Non-toxic smoke is introduced into the plumbing or sewer system, and a trained technician watches and records where the smoke emerges. An estimate is then given to perform the necessary repairs.
Video cameras have become one of the most valuable tools in the plumbing business. Specially made fiber optic cameras allow for a visual inspection of underground sewer lines and other piping to determine the condition of the inside of the pipe. A flexible rod with a high-resolution video camera on its tip is inserted into the pipe for inspection. Video images are transmitted to the camera operator and can be saved onto a videotape for a permanent record. Radio transmitters on the camera record the depth and physical location from the surface so that defects and obstructions can be corrected cost effectively.
Video cameras have also been used to locate lost jewelry and other valuables, as well as animals that have become lost or trapped in pipes.
This is a process where high pressure water propels a special nozzle through the drain pipe scouring and removing any debris or residue from the pipe.
