Moon Valley Plumbing Has the Latest Video Technology
At Moon Valley Plumbing we want to provide our customers with the best plumbing services in the valley – at the most reasonable cost. This is why we keep up with the latest plumbing technology and equipment, and every member of my team continually participates in ongoing training, as well as the yearly continuing education requirements necessary for plumbing licensure. We want to stay on the cutting edge – because that’s how we offer our clients the kind of service they can’t get anywhere else.
Video technology means we can see problems – without digging up your yard or opening up your walls
One of the greatest advances the plumbing industry has come up with in recent years is video technology. We now have the ability to actually inspect the interior of your plumbing system in detail, through the use of video equipment specifically designed to view the interior of your underground and in-wall pipes from above-ground, or outside the wall, without digging anything up or tearing a hole somewhere to get at your pipes.
Video technology has changed our approach to servicing your plumbing – now we can often prevent a disaster before it happens
Thanks to the advent of video technology, Moon Valley Plumbing has a way to head off or fix a plumbing problem before it builds to the point of failure. Traditionally, plumbers have pretty much been emergency responders; one of the main reasons we were called out was often to fix a disaster that had already happened. Now, however – we can offer preventative care and solutions for plumbing problems before you’re standing ankle-deep in water.
Plumbing maintenance and health care – both use the preventative, pre-emptive approach
The health care industry is a perfect example of exactly the same kind of change. In recent years there’s been a switch away from “diagnostic” health care to “preventative” health care, namely – physicians now try and prevent health problems before they occur, rather than treating the problem with drugs and surgery after the patient is already sick and in the hospital. We can now offer our customers the same kind of approach – a solution to a growing plumbing problem beforehand. Why? Because with video technology – we can actually see what’s going on before it happens.
We can now see inside plumbing pipes no matter where they are – underground or inside your walls
It used to be that a home’s plumbing system was sort of mysterious – once it was installed, the pipes and fixtures of your plumbing system were largely hidden underground and behind walls. Who knew what could go wrong or when it might happen? Clogs could be building, pipes could be leaking – and you just didn’t know until something busted and your water either backed up, stopped – or came gushing up through a floor or down through the ceiling.
Now, thanks to video technology – we can take a look inside your plumbing system and find potential problems before they become actual disasters. We now have specially designed high-resolution video cameras so we can actually see what’s going on inside your plumbing, no matter how difficult it is to reach, or how small or tight the pipes may be. We can use this cutting-edge video inspection technology to locate blockages, cracks, breaks, roots and other serious plumbing problems before they cost you thousands of dollars in damages.
How video technology is used to diagnose plumbing problems
It’s amazing what technology has come up with, and how many ways it can be used. Digital camera equipment has been developed strictly with the plumbing industry in mind. We now have very small cameras that are specifically designed with hardened, waterproof casings, powerful lights, and Plexiglas guards which are mounted on the end of fiber-optic cables. We use these cables to push these tiny, high-resolution cameras through your pipes, and they transmit a recorded video back through the cables to our operators above ground. The video shows the interior of your pipes in fine detail, so we can pinpoint exactly what the problem is, where it is, and what can be done to fix it – fast.
We can keep the history of your home’s plumbing on record
In fact, we can keep permanent videos of your plumbing system in order to track what might be a potential problem down the road. This can be helpful if you have an older home with a plumbing system that was installed more than 25 years ago. These systems are often subject to invasive issues like root growth, or cumulative issues, such as pipes that were made of older materials which are degrading.
With video inspection technology Moon Valley Plumbing can:
find collapsed, cracked, or broken pipes that need to be repaired or replaced
reveal pipes that may have shifted or become misaligned
see blockages or buildups from objects, sludge, mineral buildup, etc.
find rusting or corroded pipes
detect pipes that may be sinking
determine where joints or seals may be leaking or broken
spot roots that may growing into pipes
determine that there are substandard or outdated pipes
Call today to schedule a video inspection of your pipes – for preventative care and peace of mind! Moon Valley Plumbing is always more than happy to schedule a low- or no-cost preventative maintenance video check on your home’s plumbing system. In fact, it’s a highly recommended preventative step if you happen to live in a home that’s more than 20 or 25 years old, as chances are good that there may be potential plumbing issues building up that you’re unaware of, but could cost end up costing you thousands of dollars.
Check your homeowner’s policy – you might be surprised at what plumbing issues it doesn’t cover
We also advise homeowners to carefully check their homeowner’s insurance policy. We’ve had a number of customers who were hit by plumbing problems that they then discovered their insurance didn’t cover, and that’s always a budget buster.
If you’re buying a home – inspect the plumbing more thoroughly
Finally – if you’re even considering buying a home, especially one that’s more than 25 years old, you really should do a plumbing inspection that goes above and beyond the basic, generic “home inspection” that a real estate agent will tell you to do. In fact, it’s a smart idea to bring in your own electrician and HVAC expert as well; because buying and then moving into a new home, only to discover there’s a major repair that needs to be made within the first few months, can be a definite damper on home-ownership.
If you’ve been our customer in your old house, we want you to be happy – and problem-free – in that new one, so let us come out and do a “house-call” on your plumbing today!
