Video Inspection (Boroscope)




Video inspection provides a real-time visual inspection for the pipelines system to determine the internal condition. A flexible fiber optic cable with a specially designed high-resolution video camera on its tip is inserted and pushes or pulls into the system. In this process, the hardened waterproof camera equipped with powerful lights, records its journey and findings.


Video images are transmitted to an external monitor for the operator to identify any damages, obstruction that inhibit proper flow and create occasional repeated buildup. The video images can be saved for a permanent record.  The internal condition of a system typically cannot be determined without a visual inspection using an in-line camera.


Video camera inspections pinpoint problems as follow:

  • Broken, cracked or collapsed pipe line – Damaged pipes require repair or replacement
  • Offset pipe – Sewer pipes have become misaligned due to shifting soil, frozen ground & settling
  • Blockage - Grease buildup, foreign object restriction or prohibit proper flow and/or cleaning of the system
  • Corrosion – System has deteriorated, cracked, causing sections to collapse and restrict flow
  • Bellied pipe – Section of the pipe has sunk due to ground or soil conditions
  • Leaking joints – Gasket between pipes had degenerated, allowing medium to escape
  • Root infiltration – Tree or shrub roots have invaded the sewer line, preventing normal cleaning or  damaged the sewer line
  • Off-grade pipe – Existing pipes are constructed of substandard or outdated materials that may have deteriorated or corroded
