Pipe inspection CCTV cameras are used to inspect and test underground services, pipelines and drains. Pipe and drain inspection cameras can also be used to inspect clogged and blocked drains.
Tree roots, rocks and other debris can build up in pipes, sewers and drains, causing blockages and damage to the infrastructure that can stop them from functioning efficiently. When blockages occur, a pipe or drain camera inspection is used to locate and identify the cause, so that the right processes can be implemented to remove the blockage and fix any damage that's been caused. The drain camera inspection process involves inserting a drain camera, specifically designed for these types of plumbing applications, into the blocked pipe, drain or sewer, and feeding it through until it locates the cause of the blockage. The camera is connected to a CCTV system, so that the video footage can be recorded and analysed to determine a range of factors including: * What type of blockage it is (e.g. tree roots, dirt, sediment or rubbish) * How much damage has been caused by the blockage * Position and depth of the blockage
After the inspection has been completed, a plumber can then determine what needs to be done to unblock the drain and fix any damage caused. Depending on the extent of the problem and the age of the infrastructure in place, this may involve water jetting, pipe relining, excavation, new pipe installation, drain or sewer installation. While drain, sewer and pipe camera inspections are primarily used for locating blockages, there are other applications this technology can be used for like pipe relining, identifying faulty workmanship with plumbing installations and locating drain displacements. Your local council may also request you conduct a sewer CCTV camera inspection as part of the building approval process for: * Building that is being undertaken over local council’s sewerage infrastructure * Changing the land's surface where the building is taking place which could develop a water pond over the access chamber to the local council’s sewerage infrastructure * Building that interferes with access to local council’s sewerage infrastructure * Any building which could cause an increase or reduction over the council’s sewerage infrastructure.
A plumber will then provide you with a CCTV survey report which contains: * A description of the location * The name of the builder or developer * The date and time the inspection was undertaken * A detailed description of their observations * Video footage of the inspection * Photos highlighting any faults or features of interests that have been detected * Comprehensive records of both the conduit length and any uncovered defects or features of interest * A detailed report from your plumbing contractor
By having a CCTV camera inspection as part of the building approval process, you will uncover any faults, breakages or weak points in the council sewer line that could affect your building project. It also enables you to detect any features of interest, such as any property connections in the area.
There are many benefits from having a CCTV sewer, drain or pipe camera inspection undertaken. Some of these involve: * Saving time and money on labour costs from pipe excavation if relining can fix the problem * Accurately locating and identifying blockages ensures these can be removed quickly and efficiently * The inspection can be used for legal purposes if displacements of plumbing infrastructure or faulty workmanship are uncovered * By identifying the plumbing issue with an inspection, the right processes can be implemented to fix it properly, so this problem doesn’t occur again
The cost of a pipe or drain camera inspection will vary depending on the plumbing contractor providing this service.
