Robotic Drain Stormwater Camera & CCTV Tractor Camera

Robotic stormwater CCTV tractor cameras are used for measurement, inspection, and recording in restricted areas.

Diagnose & Understand The Issue with a tractor camera

A robotic drain stormwater camera is an essential tool for diagnosing and understanding the cause and extent of large stormwater pipe issues. Also known as a drain inspection camera or crawler camera, it is used for measurement, inspection, and recording in restricted areas and pipes. They are valuable pieces of equipment for both individual residential jobs as well as for larger council jobs.

Some of our clients with large drains include:

  • Councils
  • Water Authorities
  • Sports Ovals and
  • Industrial Properties.

We can also provide WinCam footage for clients that require specific reporting.

We also have the equipment to clean and reline large-sized drains.

Robotic drain stormwater cameras can move through stormwater pipes, offering both live video footage and high-quality WinCam recordings to help you understand the cause of any issues and get an exact location. This helps save time, manpower, resources, and money.

When there is a blockage or an issue somewhere in an underground utility system, it can be challenging to get to the bottom of what is going on. The good news is that drain and pipeline inspection cameras mean that we will get to those restricted and seemingly impossible to reach areas to get a good understanding of what is going on in your storm water system to make the quick rectifications that are required, ensuring the most efficient and effective plan is presented to you.

Determine the Exact Cause of the Issue

There are many different reasons why it makes sense to go for this service when it comes to inspecting your sewer systems. A camera will allow you to pinpoint the precise location where the issue is. This means that we can see where the problem is without needing to cause any disruption to the storm water line or plumbing system. Instead, we can figure out the most efficient way to get in there and rectify the problem without causing much disruption. 

There are several different benefits that customers can expect. Firstly, it means that the plumbing issue can get fixed at a record speed. In the past, you may have been without your plumbing system for days or even weeks on end while professionals tried to get to the bottom of the problem. You do not have to worry about this with the advanced inspection technology that we use here.

In addition to this, this means that we can offer you cheaper repair costs in comparison to what other companies may be able to. This is because we can make sure that repair is provided most efficiently. If that was not enough, you can also prevent an unneeded excavation, which would have been another cost for you to deal with. Instead, you get an efficient, effective, and affordable service here.

Tree Roots, Grease & Rust

Tree roots, grease deposits, and rust are just some of the potential causes of storm water pipe issues. It is only when you can fully understand the cause of the issue that you can plan a strategy to resolve it. 

In the case of tree roots, this might be a problem deep in the pipe system, which would not be easily diagnosed without a drain inspection camera. The severity of the issue and the exact location can be determined.

With regards to grease deposits, it is common that debris can build up at junctions within the sewer system. A robotic drain inspection camera is excellent at navigating sewer pipes and locating the issue.

Locate Breaks In the Line

Finding the location of a break so that it can be repaired quickly is another key benefit of a drain inspection camera. A break in the line can result in sewage leaking into the property’s foundation or into the yard, resulting in significant damage.

As well as locating breaks, it can also help to find any leaks along the line. Some leaks can be challenging to locate. A robotic stormwater camera is the perfect piece of equipment for getting an accurate understanding of where the leak is.

Eliminate Unnecessary Digging

Digging up an entire lawn or car park to find an obstruction or leak is something that should be avoided at all costs. It was generally necessary to dig a long trench along where the pipe runs to locate the issue in the past. This can be time-consuming and require significant repair work afterwards.

With a robotic stormwater camera, this won’t be necessary. The camera will be able to enter the stormwater pipe and move along until it locates the issue. The location can be pinpointed so that only a small section of digging will be necessary to carry out repairs.

Help Find Lost Valuables

It often happens that people accidentally lose valuable items such as rings, earrings, and necklaces down the drain, often when washing the dishes. If the valuable item is still in the pipes, it can be found with a robotic drain inspection camera.

Save Money On Future Repairs

If you are buying a new house, you will be inheriting its sewer pipes, which may be in poor condition. It’s not the same as a real estate showing where you can walk through the rooms of the house itself. If you are interested in a particular house, it can be helpful to determine the condition of the pipes and see if any repairs are required.

Likewise, if you are selling a house, it can help to record a video of your pipes to show to any inquiring prospective buyers. The best way to determine the condition of pipes is with a non-intrusive robotic sewer camera inspection.

When do you need a CCTV sewer inspection?

Your plumbing professional or sewer solutions specialist is typically going to advise a camera sewer line inspection if you have come across repeated back-ups in your sewerage system or you believe that something odd is going on while they use a cable machine for cleaning the line. Camera inspections can go a very long way to getting to the bottom of the problem and rectifying an issue before it turns into a much bigger one. After all, many different problems can impact sewer lines today, including collapse due to old age and obstructed root mass. 

Common Causes of Sewer Pipe Problems

Unfortunately, when there are blockages, they have a habit of not always being in the most convenient places. The last thing you want to do is dig up your entire sewer system to find out what is causing the issue. The good news is that you do not have to. Technology has advanced considerably today, and there are now a whole host of innovative solutions that can help us get to the bottom of any issue.

Severe pipe damage, when sewage will not effectively drain through the system, can occur for several reasons. Pipes can become damaged over time due to shifting soil, increased traffic overhead, heavy construction equipment overhead, or corrosion.

As noted above, street root infiltration is a common cause of pipe issues, especially older pipes. These roots can cause blockages along the line and, as they grow over time, can result in breaks. 

Trees often make their way into sewer lines as the pipes contain water, nutrients, and oxygen, which are essential to their growth. While trees enjoy being there, they can be a real nuisance for residential and commercial property owners.

Pouring grease down the drain and flushing debris down the toilet may result in blockages. Oil and fats should not be poured down drains. Only toilet paper and human waste should be flushed down a toilet.

A wireless tractor camera can help to determine the exact issue.
