Back in 1995, tragedy struck the OKC area when a bomb was set off at the federal building. During the restoration process, our owner was the rare owner/operator of video drain inspection services. Having assisted in those clean-up efforts as well as many others since, video drain inspection technology has come a long way. Many in the industry simply do not know what they are viewing and use the technology as a sales tool rather than a diagnostic tool.
Hi-Tech Plumbing & Leak Detect owns and operates over 20 video drain inspection sets that enable viewing and locating the smallest to the largest drain line, air duct or conduit in need of inspection and location.
With many technicians, we have developed an inspection code that reports the severity condition of the drain on a scale of 01-05.
1 the pipe need only be cleaned.
2 the pipe needs more advanced cleaning by means of a hydro-jetter or hydraulic rehabilitation tool.
3 the pipe may have slight crack or offset; or negative flow condition
4 a crack or break in the line, that is still able to be unclogged but is in need of repair.
5 the pipe is totally collapsed and needs immediate repair; damage risk to inspection equipment
