Home Improvement

Hi, I'm William Lux from theĀ draincamerashop.com. Today I'll be going over pipe inspection robots, inspection systems and how they can help you save a ton of money if you have a leak for the kind fellows at Galaxy Industrial Directory.

If there were a hole in the walls of the home, then you would notice that this is a problem that has to be addressed. The walls are visible, and a person would feel the draft. Holes in the home can lead to major problems. Holes in the plumbing system may result in problems as well. Leaks in the pipes are severe. If there is a plumbing problem call us right away. We offer a great inspection of the plumbing in a home.

Once you have contacted our plumbers for an inspection, we have specialized equipment used for the job. We have video camera pipe inspections so we can see inside the pipes. Some things may give you a clue as to when you should schedule a pipe inspection.

How the Inspection Works

You may think that during the inspection we are going to need to excavate pipes or tear into your sewer line. This is not the case. There is an easier way to check the pipes without causing damage to your home or property.

A video pipe inspection is a flexible rod with a Pipe Inspection Robot attached to it. The camera is at the end of the rod. The plumber will be able to see in both the sewer lines and in the pipes. The camera is small, and it can be fed right into the pipe itself. The video footage is sent to a monitor where the plumber can view it. This information will help the plumber find out what the problem is and will show them where the issue with the plumbing line is. There is no need to go digging up and tearing apart walls. This camera will find the problem.


If you have noticed that your drain is slow or clogged, this can be a problem. Soggy spots in the backyard can also indicate that something is wrong. If there is a foul sewer odor, there may be a significant problem. If you have noticed these conditions, you should call a plumber and schedule your pipe inspection right away.

If a pipe has become broken or collapsed, we will be able to see it. Once we find the problem, we can begin the repair process. If your pipes are corroded, this can be another issue. We will be able to see the rust as well as the corrosion due to the camera. If roots from a plant have grown into the pipes outside, we can see this as well. We will be able to detect common leaks too.

If you are experiencing a plumbing issue, we need to know what is wrong before we can begin to fix it. The camera will allow us to see the problem so we can start to fix it. The camera will prevent the team hunting for the issue. By gathering this information using this new technology, we can pinpoint the exact location of the problem. This will save you both time and money when repairs are made.

When it comes to price and quality of workmanship, the differences between plumbers can vary a lot. No matter whether you have a simple repair or a major overhaul of your plumbing system, it is wise to call around and compare plumbing services.

There is very little to get excited about when it comes to plumbing. You trust your plumbing to work consistently without any problems, until one day something goes wrong. In fact, it could be said that we take our plumbing systems for granted. But when we find ourselves standing in 2 inches of water that is pouring down from the ceiling it is time to stop taking the plumbing for granted and get on the phone to find a reputable plumber who can come out and fix the problem immediately. While speedy service is important the quality of the repair and being charged a fair and reasonable price also need to be factored into your choice of the plumber.

Now, why would you want to buy industrial windows for your home? There are several reasons. If you have a particularly old home, then steel industrial windows may match well with an old Gothic-style building. For what seems like the exact opposite type of home, ironically, industrial style windows are also appropriate.

Believe it or not, modern style homes take well to the industrial and commercial style windows as well. Industrial windows for a residence are mostly rectangles and squares of various sizes that are stacked to make a bold statement. They are essential to making the modern home what it is.

Shoddy installation will destroy a window's ability to perform at the manufacturer's specifications.

That means if you have paid $2500 for a window with the best hardware and the highest efficiency rating for your region according to Energy STAR, you will lose those gains. Not only will you have spent $2500 on one window, but then you will continually rub salt in your wound as you cough up more on utility costs every month to compensate for the window failure. Always pay for excellent professional installers.

Choose High-Quality Manufacturers

Many companies big and small make windows for homes. Some are boutique businesses that specialize in such windows as casements or industrial windows for the home. Consider such smaller boutique companies as well as the big, widely proven and trustworthy brands as well.

Colors, Materials, And Hardware

Many people decide when it is time for new windows based on their schedule. The roof was last year, and this is the year for new windows.

Some people love wood, though it will always require maintenance, especially if the wood is not clad on the outside in a low-maintenance and weatherproof material such as aluminum clad wood. Steel is tremendous for its ability to last a very long time. Aluminum is an option, though it needs to have thermal breaks to prevent it from conducting outside temperatures across the metal and into the home.

You may find it is easier to have the material pre-coated in color before it reaches your home. Be sure of the colors before buying, though. The hardware allows a lot of variation and customization these days. Brass, bronze, brushed copper, steel, aluminum and other materials are options. All kinds of shapes and styles are made to work with nearly any material. The great part is that even if you decide to hold off on buying windows, you may try replacing hardware first.

If you are noticing how costly new or replacement windows are when they are up to energy efficiency standards, it makes sense to plan for the purchase. Rather than forgoing performance, commit to replacing a new window every quarter, or whole sides of the house at one time.
