Drains and pipes of all kinds usually get clogged or deteriorate over time and require maintenance eventually. Any plumbing business or municipality that waits until this happens is not keeping up with modern technology and how it can save money and better utilize manpower. This is why regular drain and sewer camera inspection routines are essential in order to maintain safe, and consistent sewer operations.
Closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras are used for pipe inspection work. The technology is so precise that the pictures obtained of the inside of pipes and drains are clear enough to easily identify any damage, or even any potential future damage, in the interior part of the pipe.
Surveying pipe work in this way can save a company money by letting them have firsthand knowledge of the condition of every inch of their drains and sewers. It can minimize the kind of unexpected shock that usually accompanies an unexpected breakdown.
The more advanced systems can provide clear, sharp full color pictures in very high resolution. They can also provide close up pictures of any particular detail, providing a full 360 degree horizontal vision capability.
Drain and sewer camera inspection work has never been easier, thanks to modern technology. Now there is hardly a pipe or drain that cannot be examined internally to save a company time and money from unexpected breakdowns.
