Sewer Inspection Cameras

When you choose a sewer camera for your application, take into consideration a few of the most essential things (our technical salesperson will ask these if you contact us):
  • Do you need to see straight forward down the pipe, or do you also need to inspect the walls and joints closely?
  • Do you need to pass through some elbows, bends, and/or traps?
  • What are the minimum and maximum diameters of sewer pipes you're inspecting?
  • How often will you use this, and how harsh is the environment?
  • What is the maximum length of the lines it will be used in?
  • Should it be portable, or do you always have access to a power supply?
  • What is your budget?
Based on your answers, the most suitable inspection system can be suggested for your application.

Tips on Choosing a Sewer Inspection Camera

Learn more about how to choose a proper sewer drain camera system.
Sewer inspection cameras are widely used by plumbers, contractors, engineers, home inspectors, municipal workers, and other professionals for inspecting areas that are typically difficult to see, that is pipeline interiors, spaces behind walls, inside a drain, and other hard-to-reach places. So, if you are considering purchasing a new sewer scope, first, you need to figure out what you will use it for. Should it be water- and chemicals-proof? How much light will you need? How long should the insertion probe be? Etc.
We offer you some general tips on choosing a good sewer CCTV. However, in the end, you will have to make the decision based on your specific needs, requirements, and budget.

Insertion probe:

  • Length.
It should be long enough to go from one manhole to another. The length of the probes varies from 20 to 120 meters (65.6' - 394'). You should consider a pipe crawler if you need a more extended probe.

  • Material.
Simple fiberglass PVC-covered probes are sturdy enough for most of the work but can be worn out and damaged during a routine, heavy-duty inspection. Some of our professional sewer inspection equipment have Kevlar braided probes. Kevlar is five times stronger than steel (used in body armor, e.g.), making such insertion probes considerably more durable.
If the pushrod with the attached cam is water- and chemicals-proof and is capable of withstanding 1-6 bar pressure – this will also provide longevity to your device.


  • Illumination.
Since you plan to inspect hard-to-see areas, you will need enough light to explore them. The brighter the light source, the better the image. Search for sewer inspection cameras with adjustable, bright LED lights.

  • Material.
Just like the insertion probe, the camera should be at least waterproof to last you long enough. Stainless steel housing is preferable.

  • Type of head: standard, self-leveling, pan/tilt.
While standard heads are cheaper, self-leveling and pan/tilt cameras allow you to see the sides of a pipeline or behind the wall, go around corners, and still provide you with a clear picture.

Monitor hub:

  • Screen.
The screen should give you a clear picture of the area you inspect. A wider screen and higher resolution are always better. Pro models are equipped with a Daylight Readable Monitor.

  • Image capturing and saving.
Modern sewer inspection cameras can capture different types of files with different resolutions. You can save the footage either as a JPEG file or a video in MPEG or AVI format. Being able to record images on your computer is a convenient tool since, first, you don't need to use a pen to write everything down or try to remember it. And secondly, you can always go back to the file should you, or your client, need to verify some information.

  • Additional features.
Some modern sewer inspection cameras are equipped with keyboards (maybe splashproof on the PRO models) that allow you to type useful information during inspections.

General characteristics:

Weight and handle.
The sewer camera inspection systems should be lightweight and have a comfortable grip, especially if you plan to use it for long periods. Bigger models can be equipped with carrying wheels.
A radio transmitter (sonde) will be an excellent addition to the camera. It is generally located behind the camera at the tip of the probe and operates on 512 Hz frequency mode (North America). It is a great tool to locate your camera or find blockages. Make sure you have an accurate locator to trace it.

Sewer Cameras: Indispensable Tools for Wastewater and Sewer Inspection

Sewer inspection cameras, or sewer pipe cameras, are specialized tools used to inspect the inside sewer pipes and drain lines.
These cameras are usually mounted on a flexible rod or cable that allows them to be inserted into the pipe and maneuvered around bends and curves, providing a complete view of the inside surface of the pipe. Sewer inspection cameras are an indispensable tool for plumbing professionals because they can quickly and accurately diagnose sewage system problems without needing costly and time-consuming excavation.
The camera head is attached to a push cable and inserted into the pipe, where it can transmit a video image of the inside of the line to a monitor. Some cameras are equipped with a traceable sonde to help determine the camera's position in the pipe and can also be equipped with features such as tilting and panning that allow a better view of the sides of the pipe. These cameras are a powerful tool that offers flexibility and convenience for various applications, including pipe inspection of residential and commercial properties.
One of the main benefits of using a camera for sewer inspection is saving time and money by quickly identifying and locating problems in the sewer line. For example, with video inspection, plumbers can locate clogs and pinpoint the exact location of needed repairs without needing costly and time-consuming excavation.

Advantages of sewer inspection cameras

Sewer inspection cameras have many advantages over old inspection methods, such as using mirrors or snakes.
  • Real-time video image
    One key advantage is their ability to provide a real-time video image of the inside of the pipe, allowing the operator to accurately identify and diagnose any problems. This is especially useful in cases where there are hidden or hard-to-reach areas of the sewer system, as the camera can provide a clear view without the need for physical access.
  • Record and save the footage
    Another advantage of sewer inspection cameras is their ability to record and save 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.
  • Safety
    Sewer inspection cameras are much safer than traditional pipe inspection methods because they eliminate the need for workers to physically penetrate pipes. This reduces the risk of injuries or accidents and can improve overall safety at the job site.
