Internal television is typically performed as a result of: information collected during manhole inspections and smoke testing, customer complaints, excessive infiltration, or in association with a preventative maintenance program. The purpose of this type of inspection is to determine:
CCTV uses a television camera mounted on a remote controlled, self-propelled robotic device that is connected to a video monitor typically located in a van. The robotic system is inserted in a manhole and placed in the sewer to be inspected. Once inside the sewer, the remote control device moves through the pipe. As it moves, an operator watching the video monitor stops the camera at any type of defect or pipe condition change to get a more detailed inspection. The inspector typically uses the camera’s 360 degree articulating lens to get detailed information at all points of concern. This information is electronically recorded on VCR tapes, CDs or DVDs, however CDs and DVDs are becoming more prominent because of their ease of use. An electronic footage counter is connected to the camera and enables the operator, and engineers reviewing the data, to know where the problems are located within the sewer.
