The best way to keep your plumbing system safe is by getting inspections from certified professionals. At Trenchless Pros, we offer various services to suit your needs. CCTV cameras allow us to determine the locations of drain, sewer, and pipe blockages. In comparison, laser profiling analyzes the pipe’s ovality, alignment, diameter, and capacity with laser light. If we are dealing with a new build, we use Mandrel testing, which determines if the pipes have been bent under the stress and pressure of the soil above. Additionally, we offer lateral launch inspection, which lets us inspect the laterals from the mainline.

Inspection Services Benefits
Locating and repairing problem areas
Longer lasting plumbing system
Having your plumbing system inspected by a professional can resolve several issues, including problems you might not have picked up on. Corrosion, clogs, leaks, cracks, drainage issues, and other problems can become irreversible if left for too long. Water damage can cause mold and mildew to grow, which create unpleasant odours and wear and tear on your property. You will save money long term if you get an annual plumbing inspection. The best part about a functioning plumbing system is efficient water use, which lowers your bills and keeps you healthier.
What types of inspection services does Trenchless Pros offer?
At Trenchless Pros, we offer various types of pipeline inspection services to suit your needs. Let us walk you through each one.
Pipeline Inspection (CCTV)
First of all, CCTV stands for Closed Circuit Television Video. We use a camera to see inside your drains, sewer lines, or other pipelines. Our unit is made of a durable, damage-resistant stainless steel and is attached to a waterproof push cable. From there, the CCTV’s transmitter sends images and data back to a monitor that your plumber uses to identify the problem’s location. We record this information and use it to create a report to determine an action plan.
Another method we use to inspect pipes is laser profiling. Your plumber will use a ring of light on the pipe wall to extract the information required to determine the pipeline’s geometric profile. It allows us to plan relining projects, choose remaining pipe lift, and discover erosion and corrosion, defects, and partial collapses. In this case, there is no need to estimate the pipe distortion. It makes it simpler to create an accurate pipe liner design.
Essentially, mandrel testing is an inspection of the inside of your pipes. It’s done with a steel tool that has metal rods that dig through the pipes. The plumber pulls the tool through each pipe to find any blockages that occur after use. It will stop moving if it runs into buildup inside your pipes. Generally performed after new installations and maintenance periods, it shows whether the pipe has been bent under the stress and pressure of the soil above.
Lateral Launch Inspection
For a more thorough investigation, consider a lateral launch pipe inspection. The process is often used when directional drilling is scheduled and where past drilled utilities (gas or telecommunication) may have penetrated the lateral pipe. The inspection also uses a CCTV camera to travel through the mainline and lateral, getting an in-depth look at the plumbing system. Our camera has a transmitter, which can track its location from the surface. From there, we can diagnose any anomalies within your plumbing system.
Why get a professional plumbing inspection?
Some clues can tell you when to inspect your pipes. Consider an inspection for the following reasons:
- New Property: When buying a new home, a CCTV pipe inspection can help determine how much the plumbing system will cost. Having a record of the system’s condition makes getting repairs down the line easier.
- Renovations: The time has to come to upgrade your property, but you might not think of checking the pipes beforehand. That can be a huge mistake. A thorough inspection can prevent water from pooling and ruining your new furniture, walls and floors.
- Green Grass: A damp spot of water pooling outside your building is never good. It usually means there’s an underground leak. Calling Trenchless Pros for an inspection will help you find the problem and make the appropriate repairs.
- Higher Bills: If your water bill begins skyrocketing, you’ll want to find the root of the problem. When your usage hasn’t changed, and your irrigation piping is working fine, there’s often another issue. An inspection will give you a detailed report about your system.
- Lower Water Pressure: A clogged pipe can be the culprit of low water pressure. A professional plumber can assess the situation. However, you should check the stop valve, see if the area is experiencing water interruptions and try to locate the leak before getting an inspection.
