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.
