Inspection of drains and chimneys

Chimney Inspection Camera PCE-VR 390n Application.Inspection of easy-to-reach places, especially when it goes about HVAC systems, piping, chimneys must be regular and not just occasional. Preventive checks are carried out in the process of construction and during the operation. The list of strict regulations is compulsory and deviations from the norms require urgent repair. Chimney camera applied for surveillance in the places that the human eye cannot see presents a clear, in the direct meaning of the word, picture of what is going on inside and whether the pipe or duct is fully suitable for use. Combustion products spread in excessive amounts in the houses, rooms and habitational premises in the result of clogging of the HVAC systems or problems with the chimney are dangerous, and the complete exhaustion from any kind of appliances (stoves, heaters, fireplaces etc) must be ensured. Insertion of the robust, but flexible camera into the chimney may answer many questions regarding the condition of the chimney as well as whether the latter has been constructed in compliance with the regulations. To evaluate the condition of the chimney there are many points to pay attention to: for example, the presence of the sufficient thermal insulation, thickness of the walls, presence of the ledges, clogs, the length of the chimney distance to the roof of the building, sufficient air draft, protection from precipitation, visible and invisible cracks, level of cleanness of the channel and many others. Only application of the modern chimney inspection camera may give a reliable help in answering them quickly. The possibility to view the images taken by the camera inside improve the quality of the check and may be used as a confirmation of the final conclusion after the inspection.
