How does a CCTV camera inspection work?
CCTV camera inspection allows us to inspect your drains visually in order to locate drain blockages and breakages.
Plumbdog has invested in some of the world’s most sophisticated gear, for the best possible results. Our CCTV drain and sewer pipe surveys comply fully with pipeline surveying accreditation guidelines, and provide you with a detailed report that our plumbers can then use to make an informed decision, either drain repair/replacement or trenchless relining.
We will often recommend attendance by our water jetter and our drain camera on the same visit to clear any loose debris from the drain, so that the camera can perform a more effective survey.
We can also offer you a DVD of the inspection, which can be sent to you on completion.

Do I need a CCTV camera inspection?
The wide-angle camera view and full colour video/photo capability of our CCTV camera equipment provides us with a level of reporting that was unheard of only a few years ago. This results in a more accurate assessment of the condition of your drains, which can mean less digging, less replacement pipe required and a more cost-effective repair.
If you’re a company, you may require periodic CCTV camera drainage inspections to comply with company guidelines and/or WA environmental laws.
Camera systems used
Our CCTV drain camera guys use two types of camera depending on the diameter of the drain being inspected: a ‘mini tractor’ camera for drains 150mm or greater in diameter which can travel up to 200m from the start point, and a micro camera system for surveys in drains 100mm or smaller, which can travel up to 100m.
The tractor camera has a motorised rewind system for rapid retrieval, allowing more metres inspected per hour than with older manual systems. It uses a rotational camera to give our specialists a wide-angle view of the state of your drain.
