Thirty years ago, plumbers were still using the old fashioned tools – along with some good old know-how – to get the job done. The know-how hasn’t changed and a knowledgeable plumber can be worth his or her weight in gold here in Atlanta, GA. But technology has advanced and with it come new tools that professional plumbers can bring to solve nearby every problem. These tools can be expensive for laymen, and often require extensive training to use, but the smart ways they deal with serious plumbing problems can turn formerly arduous repair jobs into a snap. We’ve provided a quick description of two of them below, to give you an idea of what we have in mind.
Breaches in your main water line or main sewer line used to be a huge problem, requiring excavation equipment to unearth the pipe, along with a large number of man hours. Trenchless technology solves all of that. Two small holes are dug on either side of the affected pipe, and a tiny video camera lowers to inspect the damage. The camera sends images back to a tablet up tope. A replacement pipe or seal can then be lowered down and pulled through the damaged pipe via the other hole” solving the problem without any further digging and in a fraction of the time it once took.
The term sounds like a ride at a water park, but in fact it’s a method used to clean clogs out of your pipes. The plumber attached a high pressure hose to one of your outlets, then uses controlled pulses of high pressure water to know out every clog and trace of build-up in your system. Best of all, because it’s water, hydro jetting leaves no harmful chemical traces behind.
