The images produced by CCTV inspection systems like the ROVVER are extremely high quality, allowing for complete system inspection without digging up sewer pipes.

Sewer Pipe Inspections

For many years, the act of inspecting sewer pipes has been a daunting task at best. Locating points of blockage or drainage issues was next to impossible.

With the ROVVER camera system, countless man hours are spared in finding and eradicating sewer pipe issues.

Every nook and cranny of a sewer pipe can be inspected in high-def, allowing workers to locate a problem area without disturbing working pipe.

As with any business, employing practices that allow you the most valuable information for decision making is essential.

Taking the Guesswork Out of Sewer Repair

ROVVER X is the one system that lets you do everything—control inspections, view and record digital video, log observations, generate reports, and link directly to asset-management

A CCTV system allows pipeline experts like Dynamic Drain Technologies to take the guess work out of sewer troubleshooting and repair. This saves you, the consumer, time and money in repairing sewer pipes.

When using old technology to inspect sewer pipes, sewer pipe bore size was always an issue. When using a CCTV system, bore size issues become obsolete.

Using camera system lighted heads and tractor units to drive the system, the ROVVER can view and maneuver through areas smaller than 25 millimeters; displaying what it finds in a full color display.

CCTV system technology has revolutionized the pipeline industry.

CIPP Used to Reline Capitol Conduit

TrenchlessTechFeature

“TRENCHLESS TECHNOLOGY MAGAZINE” APRIL – 2011

TrenchlessTechFeature

CIPP or cured in place pipe formerly known as Insituform, is being utilized more frequently due to advances in technology. Pipe lining is gaining popularity for it’s ability to skip digging and reline pipes without digging.

Six years ago the federal government began construction on an underground visitor center beneath the United States Capitol Building in Washington DC. The new visitor center extends from the Capitol to the Library of Congress. During the construction, 114-ft vertical, galvanized electrical conduits were installed. The purpose of these conduits was to supply a series of electrical wires 40-ft underground to power a series of security and other electrical equipment within the Capitol Visitor Center (CVC). Shortly after the installation of the conduits, groundwater started to seep in at the joints.

This water was creating serious problems for the CVC. First, the ground water was infiltrating the roof where the conduits entered the building; this was causing discoloration  within the ceiling tiles. Secondly, the wires that were incased by the galvanized conduits were at risk to be damaged by the groundwater and could fail at any time, which could shut down the CVC security system.

Finally, due to the sensitivity of the area absolutely no excavation was possible. The vault that housed all 11 conduits was no more than a 100 yards from the actual Capitol Building.

Solution

Dynamic Drain Technologies out of Virginia Beach, VA, was approached by the general contractor to come up with an application to stop the water infiltration without disrupting the Capitol grounds without any excavation.

Dynamic Drain Technologies was founded to bring cost-effective, cutting-edge sewer and drain technologies to the Mid-Atlantic region. The contractor offers a wide variety of residential and commercial sewer and drain services, such as cured-in place pipe (CIPP) renewal, CCTV pipe inspections, pipe bursting and water jetting. Dynamic Drain is also a certified Perma-Liner installer using its Inversion System and offers industrial and municipal services. The contractor services North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, West Virginia, Virginia, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Tennessee, Washington DC, Mid-Atlantic and Pennsylvania. A time frame of less than three days was also in place once the project was started because of security and the fact that the Capitol Visitor Center was already open and was housing events each day. A lightweight, fast pipelining system that would not create any harmful odors in order to not disturb visitors was needed; Dynamic Drain went with its Perma-Liner pipe lining technology.

This would allow Dynamic Drain to install an epoxy-felt liner within the broken initial
diameter of the conduits. The liner was a good idea because it barely reduced the initial diameter of the conduit and it would be a seamless brand new structural pipe from end to end. This would allow the electrical contractor to string new wires without the risk of getting caught on joints and stripping the wires. The Perma-Liner Inversion System allowed Dynamic Drain to install four liners a day in order to meet the Capitol Visitor Centerʼs time requirement of three days. The 100 percent solids epoxy created no alarming odors.
