Equipment Used In Video Pipeline And Sewer Line Inspection Service

There are places in this world where you either cannot go and should not go. Some such places are the inside of water and sewer lines running below most cities and urban areas. Sewer-line inspection in particular can sometimes be a harrowing task given that they in most cases carry very noxious and corrosive of liquids and gases.

To take a leaf from the serial “Star Trek”, video pipeline and sewer-line inspection services by A-General Plumbing and Sewer Services gives it the ability “To Boldly Go Where No Man Has Gone Before” i.e. right to the heart of the matter and places where the action/ problem is, find what precisely what the matter/ problem is and help bring about the right solution.

Besides being difficult to make a human man oeuvre through the tight confines of a water sewer pipe, the other problem in most cases is that in those situations, getting an exact idea of what the problem is, is difficult. So…machines which do the job! A-General Plumbing and Sewer Services thus conducts the best and most innovative of video pipeline inspection services, be it for sewer or water pipelines.

The machines in most cases (if not all) consist of:

  1. Camera and lighting equipment: In most cases a cylindrical body has on it the camera and LED lamps to illuminate and capture images of the pipe-section being inspected. The camera has a swivel head which means it can move and take pictures in all (or nearly all) directions.

  2. Cable connecting camera to power-source: Video sewer line inspection services such as A-General Plumbing and Sewer Services have cameras that are externally powered by either batteries or generators which stand mounted on trucks very close to the mouth of the pipe/ sewer.

  3. Cable connecting camera to recording devices: Output from the camera these days being digital, it’s recorded in PCs and laptops which are stationed in the vehicle which also contains the batteries powering the camera. Continuous, and sometimes real-time images are analysed close to the scene of action and a decision arrived at fast.

  4. Rope to pull the camera out of the pipe/ sewer-line: Most equipment used in inspecting water and sewer pipes are either mounted on small motors or are physically pushed into the pipe. Pushing them in is easy. The problem arises when you have to retrieve the camera. It is here that special ropes (in most cases of high-grade nylon) are used which can take up a lot of punishment in the form of abrasion, hard-rubbing and presence of toxic substances.

  5. Reel to wind the cables and rope: Video pipe and sewer-line services can’t move an inch in any direction if all the ropes and wires aren’t taken care of. And it is here the winch and reeling equipment to wind these, come in handy. Mostly made of steel and constructed to take quite a bit of punishment, most reeling equipment which find application in Video pipeline inspection service besides sewer line inspections are built quite strong. To reduce work-load, these winches in most cases are housed in the truck/vehicle belonging to the likes of A-General Plumbing and Sewer Services. They help wind the pipes and cables right away to the safety of their parent vehicle and store them in safety.
