Utilising modern technology including the most up to date tractor camera our services include the CCTV inspection of stormwater, sewer and water pipeline inspections across Sydney. Tractor cameras are simply remote-controlled high-definition cameras mounted on a small vehicle which can cope with the unique conditions encountered in a sewer or storm drain. High quality video footage collected by the tractor camera will be the foundation of such inspections.
Our inspections can be used for quality assurance prior to commissioning and also for identifying and locating problems arising within the system of pipes.
Problems that are often encountered are mis-alignment of pipes due to shifting, corrosion in older metal pipes, damage from tree roots, blockages and leaks. And with our manoeuvrable and flexible CCTV cameras these problems can be accurately pinpointed, allowing for precise digs and expedited repairs helping to keep repair costs to a minimum.
However, preventative testing and checks are always recommended as when serious problems become obvious there is often already significant damage and repairs can prove costly.
Pipeline vacuum testing and hydrostatic water mains testing are ways of identifying leaks in the water systems of Sydney before they turn into a serious issue. Vacuum testing simply involves testing a change in air pressure in a section of pipe (under controlled conditions) and is also used in maintenance holes (MHVT) whereas hydrostatic testing uses water under pressure and is commonly used to ensure compliance with industry standards by affirming that the system can operate at a higher pressure than is required.
CCTV has numerous uses across a broad spectrum of industries, and with climate change becoming an increasing concern, it is frequently used to monitor stormwater. At 1CCTV, we frequently use stormwater CCTV in Sydney and CCTV stormwater inspection in Sydney equipment to monitor rising flood levels. We have various pieces of equipment that enable us to do this, including tractor camera inspection in Sydney that allows us to carry out drain camera inspection in Central Sydney and the outlying suburbs.
Of course, CCTV inspections in Sydney can also be used at the installation phase as well as to carry out routine monitoring and maintenance. Private clients and government bodies frequently ask us to conduct pipe testing in Sydney for water and CCTV sewer inspection in Sydney, CCTV drain inspection in Sydney and other forms of CCTV pipe inspection in Sydney. Indeed, we are the number one choice when it comes to CCTV inspection in Sydney, particularly pipe testing in Sydney relating to water.
For those living close to rivers or flood plains, we advise installing stormwater CCTV or asking a company such as ourselves to carry out frequent checks to monitor rising water levels. It is vital that you ensure that drains are clear from debris, and our drain camera inspection in Central Sydney can assist with this. Our tractor camera inspection in Sydney can highlight and locate any issues. You will find our teams friendly and knowledgeable, and they will be more than happy to advise you regarding preventative methods or repairs.
In addition, 1CCTV also provides deflection testing which is designed to test the conformity of the roundness of a pipe, which if compromised can often suggest damage created by subsidence of the bedding material and all of the problems associated with that situation.
Whichever inspection is undertaken, a report on the findings will be forthcoming and 1CCTV are proud to present their reports on Wincan Web, which is an easily accessed cloud-based platform that allows sharing of inspection reports securely with authorised personnel. Once the report is published to Wincan, it is immediately accessible through your regular browser and will provide all the data, images and videos from your inspection.
‘Out of sight out of mind’ is not a saying that applies to underground pipe systems, whether they be sewers, stormwater drains or conduits for cables – maintenance of these systems is an ongoing process. And a key component of maintenance is the detailed inspection of the pipes to determine any damage, or that they are fully operational and meet all appropriate industry standards. Damaged and leaking pipes can rapidly cause problems that can easily get out of hand, and as such preventative detection of possible problems is highly recommended.
1CCTV provide a full range of inspections including hydrostatic, deflection and vacuum testing but as our name suggests we specialise in CCTV stormwater and sewer inspections in Sydney. We take advantage of the latest technology, sending our HD cameras down into pipes and drains on robotic tractors, or if there is a high flow of liquids, on rafts.
Remote CCTV facilitates an immediate visual inspection and furthermore, our system of lasers that are incorporated into our inspection equipment can identify any areas of concern with pin point accuracy, making any necessary repairs easier and cheaper to conduct. But as well as checking for structural integrity stormwater levels can be monitored by CCTV, helping to offset the risks of flooding in Sydney.
Our CCTV pipe and drain inspection service is available throughout Sydney, and we are happy to offer it across the board – to local authorities, building contractors and to individuals.
