Tips for Choosing the Right Sewer Camera

Whether you work as a member of a public utility service for your city or as a professional residential plumber, you need a good sewer camera at your disposal. Of course, choosing the right sewer camera can be difficult, especially since there are so many camera models available on the market. Here are a few tips to make your search a little easier:

Let There Be Light
Don’t forget that the depths of pipes and sewer lines are pretty much pitch black. Prioritize sewer cameras that have a built-in light source. They let you see sharper images on the monitor, allowing you to better assess the situation.

The Long Way Around
Make sure that the camera’s cable is long enough to handle any job you may come across. Of course, how long of a cable you need depends on the type of jobs your company takes.

Save Your Work
Choose a camera that allows you to save the footage (preferably in a wide variety of formats) you collect. This is a valuable feature for when you are only doing an initial inspection and have to go back to the office to grab necessary parts or tools to finish the job.

From a Distance
Remote-controlled cameras are typically considered as luxury items. However, they do spare you the trouble of having to manually snake the camera through pipes. Whether you decide to buy a remote-controlled camera is up to you and your budget.
