The purpose of this process is to inspect the laterals from the mainline. A launch camera attached to a small vehicle is used to carry out this maintenance procedure. Here’s how it works.

Your contractor will use a small vehicle that’s remotely controlled to go inside the mainline. It has a CCTV camera attached to it, allowing us to see inside the pipes. It will travel up into the lateral to give us a full view of the line. The camera has a transmitter attached to it, which marks the location and depth of the lateral line.

One of the biggest benefits of these inspections is that they can detect anomalies in the piping system without damaging your property. It can pick up on utility line cross bores, pipe degradation, and structural issues. Our advanced technology helps clients ensure their lines meet the safety requirements and specifications set out by their

municipalities. The lateral launch system can enter through the mainline and still pick up on issues within the laterals. Call Trenchless Pros in Calgary for a free estimate today!
