Video Camera Inspection Services

As you already know, the vast majority of your plumbing pipes are hidden from view. This is both for aesthetic reasons and to keep you from tripping over the tangle of pipes running all over your house. While hiding pipes in the walls may have a lot of advantages, though, it has one big disadvantage. If you can’t see the pipes, you often won’t notice any problems that may develop with them. That’s where video camera inspection comes in. Embrich Plumbing Co offers comprehensive video camera inspection services throughout Collinsville, IL. If you need video camera inspection services of any kind, call today to schedule an appointment.

Embrich Plumbing Co provides video camera inspection services in Maryville, IL and the surrounding areas.


Video camera inspection is the primary method that plumbers use to find problems with a plumbing system. A long cord is inserted into the system, with a motorized camera at the end of it. The camera travels through the plumbing system, sending video back to the plumber controlling it. This way, the plumber can thoroughly examine your pipes for issues without tearing up the house to physically examine them. Video camera inspection makes it much easier to find and fix problems earlier, so that they have less time to cause damage. This is by far the best method for keeping tabs on your home’s plumbing.


As previously mentioned, many plumbing problems go unnoticed because the pipes are hidden from view. Most plumbing problems can cause a great deal of damage if allowed to progress for too long. For example:

  • Pinhole Leaks: These tiny leaks are only large enough to leak a couple drops of water at a time, but if left alone for long enough they can cause a great deal of water damage. Most homeowners don’t notice pinhole leaks, because they’re too small to cause a drop in water pressure. Pinhole leaks tend to only get noticed once they’ve rotted out the surrounding area, which is quite obvious even from the other side of the wall.
  • Corrosion: Various kinds of corrosion can affect your pipes, weakening them and making it more likely for leaks or ruptures to occur. Without close examination of the pipes, however, there is no way to actually observe this corrosion occurring.

The only way to catch these issues early is to have a plumber examine your pipes on a fairly regular basis, and the best way to do that is with video camera inspection.


It’s a good idea to schedule video camera inspection services for your home at least once a year. That should grant more than enough coverage to catch any developing problems before they can cause too much damage, barring an emergency. If you haven’t had video camera inspection for your pipes in a while, call Embrich Plumbing Co today. We can identify any problems you have with your plumbing system, and fix them as quickly as possible.
