Uses of CCTV
CCTV is an ideal solution for:
- finding and diagnosing the cause of a hard to clear blockage
- locating faults and structural defects within pipework
- tracing and mapping of new or existing drains.
CCTV involves a camera being pushed through the pipe work using a semi-rigid push rod with the camera fitted at the end. The pipework can be inspected and the live imaging is displayed on a colour monitor and recorded. The recording also notes depth and location within the pipework. When fault or blockage finding our engineers and customers are able to take a close up look inside the pipework to diagnose the best course of action and the most cost effective method of repair.
Mainline Crawler Camera
Using our mainline Crawler CCTV unit, we have the capability to inspect pipe work up to 100 metres in length and at between 50mm – 300mm diameter. This camera is remote controlled from its on-board control room, where our experienced operatives can view live streaming colour images of what is going on inside the pipe work. This data is then digitally stored and a report created from the findings.
Push Rod Camera
Our agile Push Rod CCTV camera Unit is on hand for those harder to access sites. With full colour video, we can easily pick up on any pipework issues or joint conditions. We are capable of producing a report on request, to show our findings. This camera is typically used for pipes less then 150mm diameter, whilst still providing the clear, accurate data that is needed.
Reporting our findings
On completion of a survey, if requested, we can supply a full detailed report on the findings, including; inlets, location of junctions and diameters, defects or obstructions. This will include photographs of any problem areas and a map of the drain layout. All CCTV footage is recorded and we can provide a copy. If there are any necessary repairs needed to be made, we will notify you and provide you with a quotation for remedial work.
