Video Pipe Inspection (CCTV) is a service used to inspect underground water sewer and lateral pipelines, VPI is a great tool for investigating cross-bores, structural faults and damages, and lateral line inspection.
With new build construction and renovation project, the likelihood of needing to cut or core concrete is high. There is an inherent risk of striking rebar, conduits, and post tension cables during the cutting or coring process. If a strict occurs, repair costs begin to add up, delays creep into your schedule and it creates a safety hazard for your employees.

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems was contacted by a general contractor to locate the conduits inside a suspended slab at the Cowboys football stadium in Dallas, Texas. The contractor needed multiple core drills and anchor locations cleared for the ventilation and piping for the new restaurant opening in the stadium. Concerned about hitting a conduit and shutting down sections of the stadium, or the entire stadium itself, the contractor called upon GPRS to locate all the electrical inside the slab before making any penetrations.
Prior to excavating and trenching for over 100 wind turbine foundations, 17 miles of access roads and 51 miles of collection lines, a major wind energy contractor subcontracted Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, LLC to locate active and abandoned underground utilities throughout the entire project area. The contractor knew of multiple oil and gas pipelines running throughout the project and needed GPRS to confirm the known utilities and identify any unknown or abandoned utilities. After working with GPRS on dozens of other projects, they knew exactly who to call to meet their needs on this project. After mobilizing to the jobsite, the Ground Penetrating Radar Systems’ team was able to locate and confirm multiple pipelines within the excavation areas on just the first day on site.
GPRS will get requests for video pipe inspection to assess different pipes and is instrumental in inspecting sewer service laterals. The one screen picture in picture will give you all the information you need for mainline and lateral viewing. If you would like to learn more about the value of video pipe inspection please take a look at a recent video case study.
