Assessing Damage to Sewer Systems Using Sewer Inspection Equipment

Sewer lines are prone to issues such as deterioration, blockages and structural collapse. One innovative way of evaluating a system’s condition is via closed-circuit television (CCTV) technology. Lyttle Service Co. describes in their blog how sewer inspection equipment can greatly minimize guesswork and risk. Efficiency Today’s technological advancements in audio-video recording have paved the way for cameras that can provide real-time footage of a sewer system’s condition, thereby assisting contractors in formulating repair strategies. The common types of cameras are pipeline inspection gauge (PIG) mounted cameras (attached to the cleaning gauges on a swiveling head), push cameras (cameras that are lowered and pushed into laterals) and crawler cameras (remote-controlled camera-mounted vehicles).
