The camera inspection of tubes makes it possible to inspect the inside of tubes, cable and drainage systems visually. A distinction is made between two locations: the camera inspection of the sewer system of public space and the camera inspection of the pipe network of private households. Depending on the location of different equipment and testing methods are used, which are independently the same objectives usually follow:
By the video inspection of the general condition of the conductive paths can be identified and potential vulnerabilities are identified early. Through the timely taking of remedial measures is expensive consequential damage can be avoided, be so cities and municipalities perform video inspections mostly as preventive measures. Also can be determined by the camera-side inspection, whether pipe blockages due to budgetary ports or urban lines. In case of damage can thus be identified, whether homeowner or the city are responsible for correcting the problem. This makes the video inspection to probaten and widespread method in the field of tube or pipe inspection.
With their help can be difficult even studied to-reach areas on tube stubborn dirt, blockages and defects, without incurring major construction and assembly work. Especially with older sewer lines of small diameter, the pipe inspection with a camera therefore often the drug of choice.
Camera inspection takes place, as the term suggests, using modern camera technology. On is possible for the equipment we refer throughout this article in more detail. For now, it is, however, to clarify the circumstances in which a sewer inspection with the camera is particularly useful and what signs you should consider this seriously consider.
Uses of the camera inspection
Let’s first take a closer look at the classic operation of a sewage system: the waste water of all sanitary facilities of a household is removed usually on the so-called manifold (a several meters long pipe system) to a manhole so that it eventually passes through the municipal sewer system to the treatment plant. In this way, the waste water is already happening in the house a number of individual pipe segments that make up the entire system composed.
Often dirt and deposits accumulate at the junctions of the segments that can sometimes lead to serious pipe blockages. The result is a penetrating smell from the drains or a clogged drain . This phenomenon occurs in private homes as well as in household on cross-sewer systems.
Suspect at his home pipe blockage or want to protect yourself as a precaution, what about the general condition of the pipe wall or pipe bottom, the camera inspection is recommended in any case. Here the pipe system will be formally investigated for “paces”. Unless damages have been detected, the inspection carried out is also the basis for pipe cleaning or following renovation or repair work.
Depending on the location (and channel or pipe diameter) different devices are used for the inspection camera is used. Even outside of private households the TV inspection of the pipe network is considered an important measure of the pipe maintenance. Thanks to the reliable method, potential vulnerabilities such as root penetration, sleeve offset or corrosion damage can make quickly identify and avoid costly consequential damage.
Sewer inspection trolley
The public area of the pipe network of sewer inspection trolley is a proven equipment, with which the interior channel (such as the municipal sewer system) can be examined optimal in large diameter pipes. The remotely controlled Befahrung vehicle is equipped with a sewer inspection camera to transmit the image via a cable line from to 1 km in length. The computer can be recorded video data in this way, individual images stored or alphanumeric inspection data is backed up.
Without the camera investigation in the public area of the pipe network the majority of all deposits would remain unnoticed until the inevitable einträfe. To prevent scenarios such as burst pipes in the downtown area, Channel inspections are therefore partly carried out as a precaution.
Push camera system
The push camera system is used for smaller pipe diameters, as they are, for example, to find the Hausentwässerungs-, property, and house sewage system. The pipe cleaning Berlin works with such inspection apparatus. The shift camera system generally consists of a cable winch, a satellite camera at the far end of the cable and a transmission screen and Computers.
The satellite camera is introduced for inspection in the pipeline, and this happens usually manually. For this, the expert pushes the coated, flexible transmission line slowly deeper and deeper into the pipe, so the interior is made visible. To meaningful picture as possible material to obtain, it is in the satellite camera usually is a camera that is equipped with a special wide-angle lens. Modern push camera systems also make it possible to move the camera head with a built-in motor in separate directions, so that each area of the pipe wall can be detected.
The research is currently working even on sophisticated image recognition algorithms in the future a more precise evaluation of the pipe condition by using the push camera systems will allow.
Analysis of the video material
The video footage of the inspection can be analyzed in two ways and evaluated: either it is assessed locally by an expert, or else it will be recorded for later, software-based analysis. Regardless of whether a later analysis of the data to be held by commercial software, recordings for later retrieval are always stored. It is also conceivable that both types of analysis are combined in order to gain the most reliable inspection result. Of course, subsequent analysis methods are usually associated with an increased cost associated.
But a trained eye should miss out on site no damages can be made already during the camera inspection a first meaningful judgment about so if a tube damage has occurred and what steps are to initiate appropriate for disposal.
Pipe cleaning and pipe rehabilitation by camera inspection
Tailored to the inspection results can be made after a camera inspection targeted measures for maintenance of the pipe, if certain types of damage were observed. Based on the diagnostics problem image, a pipe cleaning or a full pipe and provides sewer rehabilitation on.
Even the pipe rehabilitation usually can be carried out without major effort because unnecessary excavation work by the previous location of affected pipe bodies and special repair and restoration methods such as the minimally invasive inline method can be used.

Avoid chemical drain cleaner
As experts in the field of pipe cleaning we regularly report on damage patterns that affect the sewage system, and clarify consumers about the correct use of pipe cleaners on. In our guide to drain cleaners we offer valuable tips for their own production of environmentally friendly cleaning products for drainage and clear also about the dangers of chemical agent. Get to know, among other things, such as chemical mixtures may harm their sanitary objects beyond repair and what the differences between organic and inorganic drain cleaners are.
