Televising Sewer Lines


Televising sewer lines is a way of assessing the condition of area sewer. It can reveal blockages from debris, roots or grease; show cracks, and show breaks or deterioration of a pipe. It allows for a detailed diagnosis without the need for excavation, saving time and money.

The televising is performed by a robotic camera that is lowered into a sewer line through a manhole or a home’s clean-out. Some residents might be contacted about access to the clean-out on the lower level of their home. The camera is attached to a cable that runs back to a truck where crew members can control the camera's speed, move it forward or back, change its angle of perspective, and digitally record and document a visual image of a pipeline's interior.
