Video Pipe Inspection

Underground Sewer, Storm & Pipe In-Line Crawler Services


Video Pipe Inspection (CCTV) is a professional sewer camera inspection service that helps you prevent problems by inspecting underground sewer lines and lateral pipelines. Our NASSCO certified technicians can locate clogs, investigate cross bores, find structural faults and damages, and conduct lateral sewer line inspections.

Sewer Lateral Inspection & Mapping

The one-call system (811) is responsible for marking all publicly owned utilities but will not typically mark depths and will not mark any privately owned utilities. There will be at least some private utilities on almost any construction project. Therefore, to receive a comprehensive locate, a private utility locating company must be utilized to ensure that all buried utilities are located.  The private locating process protects all site employees from potential line strike damages.

Cross-Bore Mitigation Icon


Cross bores are dangerous and unintended intersections of utility lines. Cross bores can cause backups in the sewer lateral, damage the structural integrity of a pipe, or even cause severe and potentially fatal explosions. A professional sewer scope company like GPRS can locate existing cross bores before they cause problems, and prevent new cross bores by identifying where potential intersections could occur during directional drilling projects.

Sewer Inspections

GPRS Video Pipe Inspection services can help discover a collapsed sewer lateral, duct, or an unknown blockage in a pipe. This video scope service is a non-destructive option that limits project delays and budget overruns by locating the exact impediment in your sewer or stormwater line, including bellies, collapses, tree roots, lateral taps, cross bores, or other damages.

Sewer Mapping

Our professional utility locating services are enhanced by our ability to discover, inspect, and map sewer systems by using robotic video pipe cameras, push cameras, and lateral launch cameras. GPRS is a sewer scope company that can ensure you receive a comprehensive map of your sewer system including hard to discover elements like lateral lines.

U.S. infrastructure stats

In the U.S., there are over 800,000 miles of public sewers and 500,000 miles of private lateral sewers connecting private property to public sewer lines. Each of these conveyance systems is susceptible to structural failure, blockages, and overflows.

Approximately 50% of annual expenditures, in the wastewater sector, go to operation and maintenance.

There is roughly 1 million miles of potable water piping across the country. With many of these pipes having been installed in the early mid-20th century, it is no surprise that an estimated 240,000 and counting water mains break per year.
According to the ASCE, the total infrastructure budget needed to repair and upgrade our wastewater system is estimated at $150 billion.

Sanitary sewer overflows are due to blockages, line breaks, sewer defects that allow water to overload the system, lapses in sewer system operation and maintenance, power failures, inadequate sewer design, and vandalism. EPA estimates that there are at least 23,000 to 75,000 sanitary sewer overflows per year.
