Realising that you have an undetected leak in your home used to be a great inconvenience and headache. Before the availability of leak detection technology, you’d be digging around guessing as best you can where the leak may be, while potentially causing unnecessary and costly damage to your home.
These days, amongst various reliable leak detection technology such as audio microphones, an innovative and visual method in leak location is through the use of CCTV drain cameras.
CCTV stands for Closed Circuit Television, and this specially designed drain camera is attached to the end of a long and flexible rod. The rod and camera is inserted down the pipes or drains such as valves and hydrants, or tap outlets, to inspect the condition inside. CCTV can travel along the drains and follow the bends or curves given its size and flexibility. A specially trained and qualified technician then looks at the video feeds that is relayed to the screen above.
The video footages can be recorded and then analysed to identify what the issue is, identif
ying the exact location of the leak underground. Having a visual reference also helps in determining an effective solution to the issue, depending on the size and conditions of the pipes.
Apart from not having to dig around to look for a hidden leak, the CCTV also significantly saves time and money, as it requires fewer operators, while being able to quickly identifying the problem. Gone are the days when using a shovel is the only way to find an underground leak!
