In order to maintain a fully functioning municipal sewer system, it is important to perform the needed inspection of all municipal pipes. It is also the best way to perform preventive maintenance to make sure potential repair problems does not develop into something worse. The regular schedule for the inspection of the pipes should be followed religiously. Neglecting it could lead to various problems such as the buildup of sludge, corrosion, possibility of deterioration for the pipes, invasions of roots from trees above ground among other problems that can worsen as time goes by. If existing problems in the municipal sewer are not given the proper attention it deserves, there could be major issues in the future such as the pipe collapsing and major blockages. The result could impact the whole neighborhood as they experience plumbing outages. This is why it is important to perform maintenance regularly and to follow inspection schedule for the municipal sewers.
One of the modern technologies that helps make inspection faster and more convenient is the use of CCTV technology. Nowadays, municipal pipes are inspected with the help of CCTV technology. This type of technology will not only save time but also money compared to other types of inspection methods. With the use of the CCTV, professionals will be able to perform a visual inspection of the inside of the pipeline. The operator will be able to look into the entire pipeline and inspect if there are any signs of breakage, roots from tress, leaks, corroding pipes and other possible problems that could be a reason for the pipeline to fail or to disrupt its normal operation. CCTV can be used as inspection tool for pipes with varying diameters ranging from 4 inches up to the largest which is 60 inches.
Using this technology, the municipal pipe inspection can prove to be one way of preventing any failures in the pipeline system that can be otherwise very expensive to repair. There are various problems that can result from failures in the system but the most common are sludge buildup, mineral deposits, sediment buildup, scaling deposits, trash and debris accumulation, roots, erosion and many other major issues.
