Wanna to find a good sewer camera with affordable price?
Sometimes it is very difficult to choose the brand.
We can get US$1000 camera from the web and we can get US$10,000 camera from
the web.But we can't tell their quality.
There are some advice to choose the right sewer camera.
1.Be very familiar with the pipes or holes you need to inspect.
You need to know their diameters and length,whether they are vertical or
Knowing the municipal sewer network system will also help you to choose the
right and multiple-function plumbing camera for different diameter
2.Be aware of the general environment down in the pipes.
Whether you need to purchase a expensive crawler inspection camera depends
on the shape of the pipes and water,sludge inside.
3.The light source is very important.
Make sure the lights on the camera head are bright enough and can be
4.Pan/tilt camera head.
A rotary camera head may not be necessary for all house sewer
inspections.But if you want to get detail condition of the pipe system,you'd
better make sure you have a good camera head.
5.Keep in touch with the supplier
The camera suppliers may not know much about plumbing or heating
service,even though they are trying very hard to pretending they know
everything you concern.
But they know more about how to make the most of the camera functions and
how to make sure your sewer camera gets right maintenance.
Ibak's robot crawler inspection camera can't survive 2 months of inspection

know much about how to use it and how to take care of it,and the most
important factor is the difference of the environment down in the sewer
In Western countries,the sewer pipes are much cleaner but they have very
serious problems with tree roots.In China,the sewer pipes are always dirty
and filled with sludge,living garbage.So we need different types of crawler
6.If you source from China,make sure you buy from original maker.
Or you will have problem with the repairing and other after sale service.
I don't mean you can't get your camera fixed.But it will take you much
longer time,which may lead to failure of finishing your inspection tasks
with municipal sewer pipes.
