The system is designed to inspect the lines for joint leaks, grading, service line connections and obstructions.
The camera is dragged through the sewer and the picture is projected on the screen of a monitor receiving set in the firm’s trailer.
The firm also has a rejointer which works in conjunction with the camera if any leaks should be detected.
