Current Plumbing Technology

Technological tools enable plumbers to offer enhanced products and services to their customers. Smart phones, GPS, digital cameras and sonar developments have been adapted by highly trained plumbers to solve problems faster, cleaner and easier than ever.

How Plumbers Maximize Technology?

We at Proven Professional Construction Service are maximizing technology through a combination of 1) experience, 2) simple science and 3) cutting edge technology; for example, taking a rubber, inflatable test ball that is connected to an air hose and inserting it into the sewer pipe at the main line cleanout or vent stack. Once it is in place at the perimeter of your Garner home, the ball is inflated to artificially plug the sewer line so that no water flows past it.

An electronic leak detection machine uses sound to find leaks in water systems, toilets, drains, industrial pipes, steam pipes, oil pipes and other pipes transporting liquids.  

Less Invasive Pipe Repairs

Plumbers have a tough job. In the past, replacing pipes has been physically difficult and very expensive. If a leak was found behind a wall or a foundation slab, the only answer would be to remove the old pipes and entirely replace them. Today, the pipes could be repaired in place. In several steps, abrasive blasting first cleans the inside of the pipes. Then epoxy resin is used to coat the interior of the pipes to seal it, which stops the leak.

Another modern technology lets you actually replace the pipes beneath the concrete in a house without having to dig up the floor. Using a GPS based system, a well trained and experienced plumber uses entrenched technology and gears to produce a tunnel at the exact position where the pipes have to go.

High-Tech Drain Cameras

High-definition cameras are sent down a pipe in order to find exactly what and where your  obstructions are. The inspection camera is linked to the plumbers smartphone via CCTV for the most accurate diagnosis. Additionally, a sewer camera inspection also shows unexpected  problems such as:

In a crisis, if you lost a valuable item like your wedding ring down the drain, a sewer camera inspection can be performed to locate the item.

Sound Based Leak Detection

A pipe locator is used to locate plumbing (sewers and pipes) before digging to save time, money and your grass. The latest are small, lightweight and compact listening devices used with wireless digital radio headphones to electro-acoustically locate leaks in water pipe networks.
