Pipe and Sewer Inspection with a Camera

Daily work shows that there are a lot clogged or damaged sewer lines and drain pipes. With a professional camera inspection any damage can be detected and causes can be determined. 

In the kitchen area, drain lines are often clogged by grease and food remains, but also by lime deposits. In the bathroom, it is deposits caused by hair, lime scale or urine scale. Construction defects can also cause the water to no longer drain properly. In the case of sewer lines, roots can push their way into tiny openings and spread from there. This can also lead to major damage to the pipeline. So there are many different causes and possible problems that can be detected by a video inspection.

How to Inspect a Pipe or Sewer

You can start the inspection at the clean-out. The camera head is attached to a push rod. Simply insert the camera head with the push rod into the pipe system. It is useful if the inspection camera used has a camera head that can be rotated and tilted. This allows the walls of the pipe and branches to be inspected optimally.

You can watch the resulting image on a monitor while the push rod maneuvers the camera through the sewer. For quality assurance, it is helpful to record the camera inspection. The documentation of the visual inspection is not only important for you as the company carrying out the work. It is also interesting for customers to gain insight into their pipe system. For possible damage, the video recording also provides a good basis for analysis and the preparation of repair proposals.

Useful functions such as a position and angle display help to maintain orientation in the pipe. Since the course of the line is not always clear, the camera head can be located with a locator. This allows the position of the damaged area to be located quickly.
