Video cameras have become one of the most valuable tools in the drainage business. Specially made fiber optic cameras allow for a visual inspection of underground drain and sewer lines to determine the condition of the inside of the pipe. A flexible rod with a high-resolution video camera on its tip is inserted into the pipe for inspection. Video images are transmitted to the camera operator and can be saved on to a USB for a permanent record. Radio transmitters on the camera record the depth and physical location from the surface so that defects and obstructions can be corrected cost effectively. No more digging up the yard to find the problem. With the locator, the damaged spot can be accurately located saving not only time and money but unnecessary yard disruption.
Video Camera inspection is also requested by homeowners who are either purchasing or selling their home to provide peace of mind not only for the seller, but the purchaser as well. It is a visual confirmation via narrated USB, of the drain tile condition working in perfect order and not being a red flag for either parties.
