Video Pipe Inspections

CCTV Camera, Drain Scope – Pipe line Video Inspections: Assessments

Video technology is a no-mess, clean and accurate way to see the problem! Drain/Pipe Scope Video camera in-line inspections determine the nature of the problem(s) and/or the sewer pipe condition, which cannot be confirmed by snaking or rootering on its own. The camera is also a proactive way to check out the drains, or any pipe system in any home. Whether you own a newly purchased home, an older home or simply plan to renovate your basement, your drains are too important to overlook. A small amount of time and small investment can save you a large amount of time in cleanup, money and headaches. A video sewer or perimeter drain tile pipe scope camera inspection let’s you see for yourself exactly what your drains look like.

Camera Inspections “Pipe Scoping” are also an excellent way to detect a variety of obstructions or potential impediments to the proper flow of drainage, including roots, broken tiles, bad mortar connections, inline traps, negative grade sloping, pipe sagging, offset joints, pipe cracks and sludge buildup.

Water Not Draining Away?

Are you finding that water just isn’t draining away like you think it should?  Maybe you’re buying a new home and you want to make sure that there are no problems with the drainage pipes?  In either case, you’ll need a drainage survey.

What is a Drainage Survey?

A drainage survey is also commonly known as a drainage inspection and its purpose is to inspect the pipes in your home in order to see if there are any problems with them.  Drainage surveys are done before buying a home to see if there are any problems with the pipes that could cost you serious money or when you just can’t work out why water is not draining away as it should.

What Can a Drainage Survey See?

A drainage survey is capable of picking up the following things, among-st others:

  • Tree roots that are invading and partially or totally blocking the drain
  • Debris that may have settled in sewage or storm water pipe, causing a partial or total blockage
  • Looking for physical damage in drainage pipes such as cracking and separation (both in sewer and storm water pipes) as these can lead to localized flooding

How is a Drainage Survey Done?

Drainage surveys are done through the use of CCTV (Close caption TV) video cameras.  These are fed down through your drainage system through access ports, roof water leaders, or floor drains where possible. Pictures are transmitted to the Technician inspector, who then records them digitally.  A locator is used in conjunction with the camera in order to precisely record where any problems or anomalies lie.  This information is then analyzed by the specialist who will then report the findings and recommend any repairs or replacements that may be required.
