The Essential Tools for Sewer Inspections

Solid particles like sand, gravel, paper products, rags, and sediment don’t belong in the sewer. If any of these objects find their way into the sewer systems, a backup will most likely occur, posing health and sanitation risks to locals. Municipality and local government leaders should then employ cleaning tools to rid the sewers of the buildup.

A city’s sewer system, however, consists of an intricate network of pipes. NYC’s sewer system, for instance, is made up of thousands of crisscrossing pipes. Given this scenario, it’s often hard for operators of sewer cleaners to pinpoint the exact spots of the blockages.

As such, they’re recommended to use quality sewer inspection equipment like sewer snake cameras. One variation of this tool comes with a pistol grip design, facilitating easy control. Images captured by the camera can be used by operators as reference before they start cleaning the sewers.

Another vital tool in inspecting sewers is the crawler. The device typically comes with a remote-controlled camera, making it possible for an operator to see all angles of a sewer system. Advanced versions of this tool are equipped with powerful illumination capabilities, giving its operators a clear picture of what lurks in the sewer systems.

Yet another critical piece of equipment for inspecting sewers is the caliper. This has video-capturing capabilities, and it can also provide exact measurements of the volume of debris and corrosion, helping operators plan the sewer cleaning operation much better.
