CCTV Inspection: How Does it Work?

CCTV pipe inspection is a method of sending a camera attached to a flexible cable down the inside of pipes to survey the interior condition. The high-resolution live video feed is then transmitted to a monitor where a technician can analyse it to identify any damage or blockages. The technician can also use the drainage camera’s video feed to locate the problem’s exact location and any other hidden issues.

Moreover, CCTV Inspection can save you money, time and hassle. It is highly accurate and can identify hidden plumbing issues that traditional methods may miss. This can prevent expensive repairs and minimise the extent of any necessary repairs.
