Drainage Snake Cameras to Inspect Sewer and Wastewater Lines

Drainage pipe cameras are tools used for remote visual inspections in the plumbing industry. They can be equipped with cables of different lengths, diameters, and stiffness that can be moved around the bends of the pipe, allowing the operator to view and record the inside of the pipeline.

Drain pipe cameras or drain snake cameras are essential for inspecting sewer and drain lines. These cameras are a valuable tool for identifying potential problems in pipes, allowing for preventive maintenance and repairs.
The camera head is connected to a long cable, up to 500 feet long, which can be inserted into a drain or sewer pipe. The waterproof camera head is pushed through the line to observe a pipe condition. Additional skids of different diameters allow the camera to move around the pipe more easily and stay above the pipe bottom to get a better view of the inside.

The inspection cameras are available with a straight-view (axial) camera head, a self-leveling head designed to provide an always upright view, and a pan/tilt camera head for a maximized observation inside a pipeline. They also can feature many options, such as footage (meter) counter, a built-in sonde transmitter, data recording and storage, text and voice-over notes, and defect measurement.

The inspection camera should have a rugged and robust design suited for industrial applications.
The modern drainage inspection camera is equipped with color and high-resolution monitors. The large LCD screen allows the customer to view the live video in detail and check the condition of the pipes. More advanced systems have their displays protected with a clear plexiglass. In addition, some models have their monitors and keyboards sealed against heavy moisture or precipitations. For maximum portability, systems can be powered by a rechargeable battery with an option to be operated from a wall outlet.

The Drain Pipe Camera is a powerful and reliable tool for inspecting and maintaining sewer and drain lines. Purchasing a high-quality, waterproof, and heavy-duty drain pipe inspection camera with a 100-foot cable and up can be a valuable investment for industrial and municipal services and plumbers who work alone or for home use.

Advantages of drainage pipe cameras

Drainage pipe cameras are a great way to assess the condition of a pipe quickly and can be used to diagnose blockages and other problems. They can also be used to detect pipe damage or obstruction, helping you identify potential repair needs before they become serious problems.
  • Drain Camera Screen
    Real-time video footage
    Providing a real-time video image of the inside of the pipe allows the operator to identify and diagnose any drainage and pipe problems accurately and timely. This is especially useful in cases where there are hidden or hard-to-reach areas of the drainage system, as the camera can provide a clear view without needing physical access.
  • Data Capture
    Record and save the inspection data
    Another advantage of drain inspection cameras is their ability to record and save the footage for later review. This is especially useful for documenting the condition of a sewer system for insurance purposes or for identifying the root cause of ongoing problems.
  • Contractor Worker Safety
    Drainage cameras are much safer than traditional pipe inspection methods because they eliminate the need for workers to penetrate the pipes physically. This reduces the risk of injury or accident and can improve overall safety at the job site.
