How CCTV Pipe Inspection Works
We have state of the art CCTV pipeline inspection cameras at Sewer Surgeon that allow us to see damage and blockages that occur far below ground without excavating the pipeline.
A CCTV (closed-circuit television) camera can be used for many purposes, but you are probably most familiar with the technology in security cameras. The same technology enables water and sewer service providers to access subterranean pipes and sewer systems High-tech cameras can detect pipe faults and deterioration in any condition. Then, we diagnose the issue and plan for no-dig pipe repair option or the pipe relining.
A CCTV pipe inspection can find blockages, leaks, and pipe damage that regular cameras can’t reach. Many homeowners and businesses are unaware of concealed pipe issues caused by degradation, incursion, or weather. A cctv pipe Is the best instrument for finding and fixing leaks in sewer and water systems.
The issue with pipeline inspection used to be that pipelines, by definition, are buried below ground, making it difficult to inspect them for damage. A CCTV pipeline inspection solves this problem by inserting a mobile CCTV camera unit into the pipe at the surface and then exploring the length of the pipeline until the problem is discovered.
Depending on the issue, this could include structural damage such as a crack, leak, or collapse, or it could be something non-structural such as a blockage that needs to be cleared. It’s difficult – if not impossible – to know exactly what damage has occurred and whether the pipeline will require remedial work to restore it to a good state of repair for the future unless you take a closer look.
The added benefit of knowing what corrective action or maintenance is required is that you can better control costs and obtain quotes tailored to the specific scheme of work involved.
