What to Consider Before Purchasing Pipe Inspection Equipment

Home » What to Consider Before Purchasing Pipe Inspection Equipment

Video inspections are a critical part of the rehabilitating process for damaged laterals, pipes, sewers, and drains. Investing in a pipe inspection system is a big step, and you’ll want to make sure that the trenchless equipment you choose will serve all of your needs.

At Pow-R Mole Trenchless Solutions, you’re sure to get the right pipe inspection products.

Pipe Size

Consider the sizes of the pipes, laterals, and sewers you typically inspect. If most of your projects are for single-family homes, you’ll need trenchless products that accommodate 1.5- to 4-inch pipes. If you primarily serve multi-family housing, commercial and industrial clients, you’ll need pipe inspection solutions that are designed for 3- to 12-inch pipes.

Location of Camera Head

New pipe inspection systems use GPS to pinpoint the location of the camera head. This is important because it helps you determine where the issue in the pipe is located.

Information Sharing

Your customers may want to see the problem in their sewer line for themselves. If they’re not available to watch the inspection as it happens, you’ll need a video camera and trenchless supplies that enable information sharing. Consider a camera with Wi-Fi and storage that allows you to record videos and save or share them with your clients.

Care and Warranty

When your technicians are busy in the field performing trenchless repairs, you won’t have a lot of time for maintenance and upkeep of the inspection equipment. The equipment’s warranty, care requirements, and maintenance needs are important factors for your purchase.

Using trenchless technologies in your pipe rehabilitation business saves time, increases productivity, and reduces costs. The right equipment facilitates faster project completion, accurate work, and high customer satisfaction ratings.
