Embracing Modern Technology for Sewer Analysis

1. Setting the Context

In the field of drainage system management, the importance of accurate and timely inspections cannot be overstated. Historically, these inspections were conducted manually, often involving significant labour, inherent risks, and limited accuracy. However, the emergence of Sewer CCTV Surveys represents a paradigm shift in how we approach this critical aspect of infrastructure management.

2. The Use of CCTV in Drainage Systems

The transition from manual to CCTV-based sewer inspections wasn’t merely a change in methodology; it was a revolutionary advancement in technology application. Closed-circuit television (CCTV) brought with it the promise of remote, detailed, and comprehensive assessments of sewer conditions, not requiring the need for physical entry and reducing any risks.
