What is a Pipe Inspection Camera?

Pipe inspection cameras also called sewer cameras, push cameras as well as snake cameras are a type of non-articulating inspection camera used to conduct a visual inspection of sewer lines and underground pipes including underground pipes and conduits. Pipeline inspection systems enable operators to visually examine pipes and pipe walls in drain lines from 2 inches to 8 inches in diameter. Typical sewer inspection camera diameters range from 6mm diameter up to 3” diameters and lengths from 100ft to 400ft.

Considered by many plumbing professionals as one of the most valuable tools in the plumbing industry, pipe inspection cameras are specifically designed to be waterproof to provide a complete optic inspection for various aqueous exposed piping environments.

Pipe inspection cameras or sewer cameras are commonly designed with a high-resolution video camera on its tip. Most sewer inspection systems offer LED lighting at the inspection probe tip to illuminate the inspection area. Pipe cameras are hi-tech flexible inspection cameras designed for optimal maneuverability, allowing users to conduct visual inspections through the many twists, turns and bends of sewer lines and plumbing pipes. Video recording and picture taking comes standard on most pipeline inspection systems, making it easy to assess and documenting the inspection. Many sewer camera systems are portable and designed with rechargeable batteries reducing the need for direct power supply. Some sewer camera systems include a location transmitter or snode that can help the end-user pinpoint where the inspection camera is located, and the depth of the camera position while inside a pipe underground.
