What is a CCTV Drain Inspection?
CCTV inspection is examining and monitoring of drainage and pipes for repair or rehabilitation. A camera system is used for this purpose which records video and provides data on the underlying problems such as broken or damaged pipes. A CCTV inspection is useful in providing reliable data and documented analysis of the drains and pipes on issues that are currently being experienced.
A CCTV inspection eliminates the guesswork and enables us to analyse the issue and propose a solution to the problem in a timely efficient manner.
THE TYPES OF CCTV INSPECTIONS WE CONDUCT
Hydro Static Testing / Flood Testing
We often use this method of leak detection where a CCTV camera inspection has been carried out and there are no visible defects or breaks found in the pipes.
The procedure followed is for the technician to cap the sewerage or stormwater system with a plug or balloon. He will then fill the pipes with water and observe the water level from a riser or any other available access point. He will wait and observe the water level for at least 15 minutes and if the water level drops, then we have evidence of a leak. The severity of the leak will be indicated by the speed of the water level dropping
Static Isolation Testing / Flood Testing
This method is used once a leak in the sewerage or stormwater system has been detected, but we still need to determine the exact location of the leak.
We use an inflatable balloon and water for this procedure. We will insert the balloon into the pipe and inflate it. We will then fill the pipe with water and observe the water level from a riser or any other available access point. If the water level is dropping, then there is a leak.
The balloon is slowly moved along the pipe and the above process is continually repeated until the water level ceases to drop. This indicates the location of the leak.
This is a slow and time-consuming method, but it is extremely precise in locating the defective area.
